Hang On, Spidermonkey: A Twilight Retrospective

Summary

On this episode of Make Out Already, we take a trip down memory lane to revisit the Twilight Saga. How did we first encounter the series? Is it as baffling and problematic as we remember? (Spoiler alert: It is.) What holds up, and who would we cast in a reboot? Plus, Meg torments herself by binge-watching all five movies, and Liz points out the religious themes she thinks influenced Meyer’s work.
