Late 90s TV Emergency: Popular Episode 1 (1999)

Episode Summary

"He is soooo your Alternative Nation God."

Episode Notes

I flew into a late 90s flurry when I saw that episodes of Popular were on Youtube. From the mind of Ryan Murphy in 1999 this is not your typical show about high school. Both me and Mikey are day 1 fans and we talk our history with the show, the evolution of Ryan Murphy, and why Mary Cherry is one of the best tv characters ever. 

I hope more people discover this 90s tv gem!
