Weekly Roundup: Back-to-School Problems, “Only Murders in the Building,” “The Afterparty,” "Empire of the Sum," and Archival Complaints

On our latest weekly roundup, we don't have any kids in public school anymore, but we can still complain about back-to-school issues like traffic and loud robot voices.

What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building, "Ghost Light" was entertaining but entirely expendable; we're no closer to knowing whodunit. On The Afterparty, we do now know whodunit, although we're not exactly convinced the show's writers didn't just throw a dart at the murder board and then work backwards from there.

Catherine's library find this week shifts to nonfiction for adults, with two titles of note. One is scary (100 Animals That Will F***ing End You) and one sounds like an absolute delight: Empire of the Sum: The Rise and Reign of the Pocket Calculator. It's by Keith Houston, who also wrote Shady Characters: The Secret Life of Punctuation, Symbols, and Other Typographical Marks. Terri is very disappointed that she can't listen to these immediately as audiobooks.

In the archives, we revisit episodes in which we complained about kids' toys (September 15, 2021), financial surprises (September 11, 2019), and physical pain (September 12, 2017).

We'll be back with a new episode next Tuesday. Our TV watch will cover S3 E7 of Only Murders in the Building (“CoBro”) and the movie Theatre Camp. If you miss hearing from us every single day, the archives await you!
