This week we are reflecting on the tragic death of Luke Perry.

We share some of our favorite classic Dylan McKay moments as well as some of our favorite things we've learned about him from other entertainers in the days since his death.

We're also sharing some thoughts and memories from our listeners, who each have their own special connection to Luke Perry and share what he meant to them. 

Find us on social media @shippingroompod after you listen, and let's all have a group hug as we mourn the loss of such a talented man who touched so many lives with his performances.

*** SPOILER ALERT: This episode contains spoilers about the show YOU. If you have not watched yet but plan to, you may want to wait to listen to this episode so that major plot points are not spoiled for you! ***

Tamar and Christine are back to business and talking about YOU, streaming now on Netflix!

What is it about Joe that we find so fascinating? Is it possible to romantically 'ship a murderer with anyone? Did humanizing Joe make you like him more or less? Is anyone else fascinated by Peach? Is Karen Minty going to make a comeback? 

Most importantly, why do we get carded to buy Sudafed, but Paco was able to walk into a hardware store to buy just about anything?

We're also talking a little about how much we love Schitt's Creek, why they shouldn't create a love triangle for CoNic on The Resident, and we give you a little glimpse of what's coming soon!

As always the conversation doesn't end here - find us on social media @shippingroompod and share your own thoughts with us! We can't wait to chat!

Goodness, it feels good to say we're BACK.

We missed you all so much. So, so, so much. 

Before we resume our regularly scheduled episodes (and there is a LOT to chat about, as you all know!) we wanted to check-in and get a few quick thoughts out there!

We briefly check in on our thoughts about that spectacular and heartbreaking The Good Place finale and also do some quick squealing about David and Patrick. (You've got a few weeks to catch up on Schitt's Creek before we deep dive into it, so get to it!)

There also some chatter about YOU (which we'll get into further in our next episode) as well as Tamar's hot take on Roswell, NM. 

Does Christine want to even get into Crazy Ex-Girlfriend yet? Why hasn't John Stamos aged a day? How big is your David and Patrick smile? 

Let's keep these thoughts going on social media! Find us @shippingroompod everywhere! 

It's great to be back. <3

A few weeks back, Tamar was on a trip with her husband when someone told them to visit a flagship store - and a light bulb went off!

This week, we're talking about Flag 'Ships. What 'ships are on showcase in your memory from different time periods in your life? What do those 'ships have to do with how you viewed 'shipping as you got older? Did those 'ships shape our futures?

We're also talking about how Devon Sawa wrecked our collective childhood, whether or not David Silver was a good guy, the days when televisions had antennas, Our House, a possible deep dive into California Dreams and more!

The conversation doesn't end here...find us on social media @shippingroompod and keep the chat going! 

Nov 7, 2018

Tamar and Christine recorded on Monday night and agreed that no matter what the outcome of the US elections was on November 6, there'd be a new episode of The Shipping Room for our wonderful listeners on Wednesday morning!

This week is really all about catching up - what have we been watching? What 'ships are we loving? What have we lost touch with? (And Christine is eating avocados and doing yoga now.)

Tamar gives a moving review of Elite, Christine tells you why Murphy Brown is like a warm fall hoodie, and more. 

Come find us on social media @shippingroompod after you listen, and chat us up! We're waiting to hear from you!

**Spoilers abound for Season 9 Episode 6 of Shameless**


AHHHHH. You guys. Gallavich lives. Tamar needed to take five minutes to discuss this with you all. She's talking into the void so please be sure to find her on Twitter to discuss this at length!! 

Sep 12, 2018

Raise your hand if you're in love with Peter Kavinsky?

...and now that we're all gathered here, Tamar and Christine are super excited to talk about the hits and misses of Netflix's brand new romantic comedy surge.

Was Set it Up the set up to this entire movement? Is A Christmas Prince a good movie, a GREAT movie, or a really really bad movie? Was The Kissing Booth a terrible bait-and-switch? Why aren't there more movies like Alex Strangelove? 

And of course... we're talking about To All the Boys I've Loved Before (and Christine is REALLY adamant that everyone goes on to read the books!) and the magic that is Pacey Witter, oops, Peter Kavinsky!

We're also talking about what we're looking forward to in fall TV (HINT: The Good Place premieres on Sept. 27!) and we're addressing the big Greg recast on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. 

And Christine is really f*cking excited about Murphy Brown.

As always, the episode never ends here! Find us on social media @shippingroompod to keep the discussion going! We'll be waiting! :)

Tamar and Christine absolutely loved their chat with Sera Gamble, co-creator of YOU, coming to Lifetime on Sunday, September 9th! 

We discussed slowburn shipping, magic and chemistry, Penn Badgley, and social media stalkers with Sera in this insightful interview.

You're definitely going to want to give this interview a listen, and then immediately mark your calendars to watch YOU on Lifetime, as well as Season 4 of The Magicians!

YOU is sure to become a staple of The Shipping Room!

Many thanks to Sera for taking the time to chat with us.

It's finally happening!! #TeamCharles fans have been waiting and waiting and WAITING and now the time of Liza and Charles has finally arrived. Was it everything you'd hoped it would be? Have you watched it ten times? Were you disappointed? Was it missing a little something? Tamar and Christine break down their reactions to this epic episode of Younger. 

Jul 24, 2018

This week we're talking about the different ways we view problematic romances and characters on television. 

Let's be honest - we've let some stuff slide by that probably isn't great. But is all fair in love and feels? 

From whether or not Zack Morris is, indeed, trash to the problems with teacher/student hookups to excusing many forms of abuse, Tamar and Christine are tackling it head on.


Don't forget that the conversation doesn't end here! Find us on social media @shippingroompod and be a part of the dialogue! We can't wait to hear from you. 



Jun 21, 2018

It's a sipping and shipping crossover event!

Christine was joined by Janelle and Jackie of the Sipping Sisters Podcast for a discussion about season 2 of 13 Reasons Why!

We're breaking down everything that happened with Clay, Jessica, Alex, Justin, Zach, Bryce, and of course, Hannah.


We discuss the events of Season 2 in detail. If you haven't watched the season yet, but plan to, and want to be surprised, hold off on listening to this episode until you've done so!

NOTE: Some of the discussion surrounds sensitive topics such as rape, violence, drug use, guns, and suicide. If any of these are a trigger for you, please use caution when listening.

Drake reunited (most of) the Degrassi: The Next Generation cast for a special 10 year high school reunion for the video for his latest single  "I'm Upset" and we are FREAKING OUT.

Who returned to the hallowed halls of Degrassi? Who didn't get an invite and was left...upset? What does this video mean canonically for the series as a whole? Should we pour one out for JT Yorke? Which Degrassi cast member left the show and went to NYU? What IS Craig and Ellie's 'ship name?

Christine is joined by fellow Degrassi superfan Caralynn Lippo from Tell-Tale TV to answer these questions and also break down what we saw, what we missed, and talk about how this masterpiece came to be. 

As always, don't forget to share your thoughts on social media with us @shippingroompod! We can't wait to hear them!

This week we're talking about the genius that is Mike Schur and the complex relationships he's created on some of our favorite shows.

We missed you all so much, and we are incredibly excited to be back and chatting with you all again!

This week we're catching up!

Tamar and Christine have a chat about #Gallavich and Mickey's departure from Shameless. 

They also gush about The Good Place and share which actors deserve some awards recognition for stellar performances. 

A heavy discussion takes place about whether or not Rebecca can come back to the good graces of fans' of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's hearts.

Tamar and Christine are also discussing the state of Hollywood and how the sexual harassment claims are being handled, what it means for the future of Hollywood, and how we view shows we loved knowing what we know now. 

We also give an update on the future of the Shipping Room!

This week we're taking a small break from "ships" to chat about our favorite squads! Thanks to listener Gabbi for sending us her top ten squads and inspiring this episode! 

What makes a good squad? Which shows featured the most "goal-worthy" crews? We look at some of our favs, from Friends to Grey's Anatomy to Riverdale. Who are some of yours?? Be sure to find us on twitter @shippingroompod to continue the discussion.

This week, we're talking about reunions! (And we're having our own reunion as well!)

Listener Andrea sent in this idea, and we were shocked to discover that we hadn't done an episode about our favorite reunions yet! (Thanks Andrea!)

Which reunions gave us happy feelings? Which ones kept us on the edge of our seats? Which ones took far too long to happen? And why do we love the cheesy reunions so much, and the ones that are so easy to predict?

Christine's also giving a Shameless update, and we talk about what we've enjoyed so far from the new TV season!

Don't forget to find us on social media @shippingroompod and share your thoughts with us! We can't wait to continue this conversation!
