This week, Brie talks to two Vulture writers -- Jen Chaney & Roxana Hadadi -- about two popular New York shows everyone is talking about... for two very different reasons. First, the ladies take on the "woke" politics of the new Sex And The City reboot And Just Like That.... Does "Black Miranda" work as a replacement for Kim Cattrall? Why are the show writers ritually humiliating the smartest cast member -- turning Miranda into a Karen? What should we make of the effort to shoehorn in Ibram X Kendi references? And why wont the writers let the aging Gen Xers have sex? Second, the trio tackles the season finale of Succession, which is as subtle as SATC is cartoonish. Who are we rooting for and what does it say about us? Are we all, like Lukas Matsson, fascinated by failure? (Is that why Brie can't stop hate watching . . . everything?)
