Clickbait Boyfriend: Re:Codename Useless

Clickbait Boyfriend fans, I swear, this post would have been on time this week, but when I went to check on it to post on Tuesday, I discovered the data had been corrupted! I had to go on a crazy adventure through my memories of Clickbait Boyfriend watching Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded led by Data CBB to repair…

Clickbait Boyfriend: Final(ly, Some Answers!) Episode

Apparently, we’re still operating on Kingdom Hearts time here in Clickbait Boyfriend land! Thanks readers, old and new, for your patience with this week’s (which was supposed to be last week’s) post. It’s been a busy few weeks at Talk This NYC HQ, with papers and shows and half-marathons and magically expanding to-do lists, but know that…

Split Screen: Power Couples 101

Thanks for tuning in to Split Screen! I’m your trailblazing intro host Madelyn. We started this Off-Topic Corner series as a bit of a joke, but I am now deeply invested in the characters of both of these shows! As one of the former curators of a literal Trashy Novel Book Club, perhaps this should…

Clickbait Boyfriend: Xtreme Xistential X-Blade X-Fit

Clickbait Boyfriend fans, we’re operating on Kingdom Hearts time this week, meaning that 1. it doesn’t seem to operate on a consistent basis between worlds and 2. you can expect major delays.

Clickbait Boyfriend: Is Kingdom Hearts Sexist? One New Yorker Thinks it Might Be

Way back in the first Kingdom Hearts, Clickbait Boyfriend pondered whether the game was racist. He was being pretty tongue-in-cheek, but it’s a serious question worth addressing. It’s certainly not doing anything noteworthy in terms of representation! This week, in a month where these kinds of questions feel particularly salient, he wonders whether or not Birth…

Split Screen: Domo Arigato, Crushing Roboto

Hey there reader! Thanks for tuning in to Split Screen: A Watch This Production from Talk This! I’m your introductory host Madelyn, and I am psyched for this week’s blog. An autumn chill is in the air here at Talk This NYC HQ, but Split Screen is only heating up! You know it’s a good…

Clickbait Boyfriend: Bow to the Rodent Queen

Let’s be honest: Kingdom Hearts is a pretty male-dominated series. The whole first game was about literal damsels in distress (well, and darkness), and until this past week’s blog, Clickbait Boyfriend had never been able to play as a woman! This week though, we’ve got a girl-power packed edition of the Birth By Sleep blog, featuring not…
