You've Got Mail and Serendipity

It's the 2022 Two Geeks Christmas special! And as promised, it's a sort-of-Christmas-romcom episode.

Here, Tom looks back at the 2001 romance film Serendipity starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale, while Morgan delves into 1998's You've Got Mail with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

Sure, it doesn't sound like geek fodder that belongs on the podcast, and you might be right....

In the episode, we discuss:

  • Can John Smiths be classed as a 'Christmas' beer?
  • Don't put on Christmas jumpers you bought a few years ago. It will crush you.
  • Do you have a 'going to bed' film of choice?
  • The romcom trope of having a 'perfect breakup' and then instantly chasing someone else (we're looking at you, Matthew McConaughey in The Wedding Planner)
  • What was the golden age of romcoms?
  • Why Kate Beckinsale deserved better
  • Why men should enjoy romcoms together more often
  • Does Morgan now finally like Tom Hanks?
  • Is Jude Law the most beautiful man of all time?

Clips used:

  • Friends (NBC)
  • Serendipity (Miramax)
  • You've Got Mail (Warner Bros)
  • The Wedding Planner (Columbia)

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
