On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, Catherine and Terri continue watching The West Wing, plus tee up a new challenge for each other. And Catherine even saw a first-run movie! Here’s your road map:
00:41 Hidden Figures — Catherine and her 11-year-old son both enjoyed this movie, in which the performances by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae outshone the real-live stars John Glenn saw while orbiting the Earth. Recommended!
07:05 The West Wing — While it may not get credit for being a two-parter, this week’s episode, “The War at Home,” is both a satisfying follow-up to “Bartlet’s Third State of the Union” and a tantalizing lead-in to what’s next.
12:42 Challenge Round — Terri challenged Catherine to watch the Great Performances documentary “In the Heights: Chasing Broadway Dreams,” and — surprise! — Catherine found it as delightful as Terri did (here’s the New York Times review mentioned in the documentary and here on the podcast).
