In a slow week for pop culture, Morgan and Gavia try something new: forcing each other to watch something they know they'd only watch under duress. Morgan subjects Gavia to Noah Baumbach's indie dramedy Frances Ha, while Gavia forces Morgan to endure the Wachowskis' psychadelic action flick Speed Racer. Though chosen with the best of intentions, the films... do not go over well. You can't win 'em all.
