[00:00:31] Trey Gerrald: Hello.

[00:00:32] Chelsey Donn: Hi. [laughs] So-

[00:00:34] Trey Gerrald: Oh, my Gosh.

[00:00:35] Chelsey Donn: ... I quickly pulled Goldie on after that intro, and she has her crown on.

[00:00:40] Trey Gerrald: A crown! Oh my gosh. How is that attached to her head?

[00:00:45] Chelsey Donn: It's like, uh, like party hat, actually, she's leaving it on.

[00:00:48] Trey Gerrald: Good girl.

[00:00:50] Chelsey Donn: You hate it so much. Okay. Anyway-

[00:00:54] Trey Gerrald: Oh, my God.

[00:00:54] Chelsey Donn: Welcome to Review That Review, the podcast dedicated to reviewing-

[00:00:59] Trey Gerrald: Reviews. We are just like Siskel and Ebert only instead of being crotchety old white men, like Chelsey pointed out a few episodes back, uh, reviewing cinematic masterpieces. We are fun, vibrant white people, who rate and review those hilarious, scathing, and sometimes suspicious online reviews.

[00:01:20] Chelsey Donn: And That over there is Trey Gerrald.

[00:01:23] Trey Gerrald: And that over there as Chelsey Donn.

[00:01:25] Chelsey Donn: And together, we are-

[00:01:28] VOICEOVER: The Review Queens.

[00:01:32] Trey Gerrald: And listeners, guess what?

[00:01:34] Barbara Walters: This is 2020, this 2020, this 2020, I'm Barbara Walters. And this is 2020.

[00:01:45] Trey Gerrald: It's our 20th episode.

[00:01:48] Chelsey Donn: Oh my God, Barbara. That was so nice of you to make an appearance. Wow. [laughs]

[00:01:53] Trey Gerrald: She has a very, very expensive quote, but she arrived.

[00:01:56] Chelsey Donn: She arrived.

[00:01:57] Trey Gerrald: Here we are, 20 episodes.

[00:01:58] Chelsey Donn: 20 episodes-

[00:01:59] Trey Gerrald: What do you think about?

[00:02:01] Chelsey Donn: I just can't even believe it's happened. I remember the very first rehearsal and-

[00:02:05] Chelsey Donn: [laughs]

[00:02:06] Chelsey Donn: ... one day maybe someone in Patreon will see it, but I think we've come a long way Trey. I'm proud of us. How do you feel?

[00:02:12] Trey Gerrald: I feel good. Most podcasts don't make it past their fifth episode. So we've got 15 on them.

[00:02:17] Chelsey Donn: Oh, my God, yeah. Look at us.

[00:02:19] Trey Gerrald: You had a reveal and now I'm prepared for my reveal!

[00:02:23] Chelsey Donn: Oh, my God, stop.

[00:02:24] Trey Gerrald: Chelsey why don't you describe what I'm wearing?

[00:02:27] Chelsey Donn: Okay. It's very Regal. It's like a Regal necklace, almost like collar-esk, like a bandana, like shape, but made out of maybe pearls.

[00:02:37] Trey Gerrald: In preparation for Halloween, which is a few weeks away.

[00:02:40] Chelsey Donn: Oh, is this a teaser?

[00:02:41] Trey Gerrald: My family, David and our two dogs do annual Halloween pictures that are top secret. No one knows the theme until Halloween. And this is a little tease! What, what are you? What's your guess? Why do you think I'm gonna be for Halloween?

[00:02:55] Chelsey Donn: Oh my God, this is it. This is all I got, this necklace?

[00:02:58] Trey Gerrald: For today.

[00:02:58] Chelsey Donn: I don't know. Oh, God. Are you like a judge? Like a fancy judge?

[00:03:04] Trey Gerrald: Good question.

[00:03:05] Chelsey Donn: I don't know. First of all, the highlight of my year is this photo shoot that you guys do. And I'm so excited this year to see how we're gonna integrate Hunter-

[00:03:15] Trey Gerrald: Mm-hmm [affirmative].

[00:03:16] Chelsey Donn: ... because he's new to the bunch.

[00:03:18] Trey Gerrald: Yes.

[00:03:18] Chelsey Donn: But if you guys haven't seen these already, it's, it's worth the Instagram scroll. Like go on Trey's page, @TreyGerrald. Fabulous. We had, what do we have? We had the Dalmatians one?

[00:03:29] Trey Gerrald: Cruella DOG Vil

[00:03:30] Chelsey Donn: Yes.

[00:03:30] Trey Gerrald: So Winnie was dressed as Cruella, we were Dalmations.

[00:03:34] Chelsey Donn: That's right.

[00:03:34] Trey Gerrald: And then we also did Cinderella and evil stepsisters. She was Cinderella.

[00:03:38] Chelsey Donn: So good.

[00:03:38] Trey Gerrald: We did Little Shop, she was the Plant, I was Audrey, David was Seymour.

[00:03:42] Chelsey Donn: Yes.

[00:03:42] Trey Gerrald: And last year we did, uh, The Wizard of Oz. So she was Dorothy.

[00:03:46] Chelsey Donn: Yes.

[00:03:47] Trey Gerrald: I was Glinda, the good witch, David was the wicked witch.

[00:03:50] Chelsey Donn: Killed it, so good.

[00:03:51] Trey Gerrald: And um, this year we have Hunter who has to be in the mix.

[00:03:55] Chelsey Donn: It's so worth, lock guys. You don't even understand how good it is.

[00:03:58] Trey Gerrald: I think this year's going to be very epic. Um, anyway, so my week has been deep in the throws of stitching and hot gluing and, um, fabricating costumes. Where in the process, you know, Hunter as a rescue, as every listener knows. And so I've, I've been trying to get him comfortable with wearing a sweater because-

[00:04:18] Chelsey Donn: Good call, you got to get him comfortable.

[00:04:20] Trey Gerrald: Because he will be in costume. They do make sweaters that you can step into and zip up down the back.

[00:04:25] Chelsey Donn: Okay.

[00:04:26] Trey Gerrald: So we're gonna have to go with that.

[00:04:27] Chelsey Donn: That might be the way.

[00:04:28] Trey Gerrald: 'Cause my hand has been bitten way too many times.

[00:04:30] Chelsey Donn: Oh, no. So the dress rehearsals have been a bit intense?

[00:04:34] Trey Gerrald: And I have to be st
