Satellite Sisters Recap Madam Secretary, Break in Diplomacy episode.

Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan do a Satellite Sisters recap of Madam Secretary

The Satellite Sisters recap Episode 315 of the CBS Drama Madam Secretary:  Break In Diplomacy.  Liz Dolan fills in for Julie Dolan as Acting Secretary of Recap reporting to Lian Dolan, Recapper-In-Chief. 

The Satellite Sisters recap the CBS Drama Madam Secretary. Episode: Break in Diplomacy.

Let’s play “Who’s the inspiration?”  Hmm, let’s see. Who were the writers at CBS drama Madam Secretary thinking about when they wrote this episode?  This was a serious episode featuring serious themes about a world leader known for being a rough-around-the-edges narcissistic businessman who ran an unusual campaign. He has a history of lewd behavior and corrupt business dealings plus unusually close ties to a country that was a former foe. OK.  Guess.

If you guessed the Phillipines, you guessed right! Actually, that is the reputation of the ACTUAL president of the Philippines.
Storylines:
Satellite Sisters recap Madam Secretary Carolina Herrera dress on Tea Leoni.

Madam Secretary is just about to make it pretty darn clear to the President of the Philippines that sexual assault is not to be dismissed as a mere indiscretion. And she looks great in that Carolina Herrera dress while she does it.

Sock It To Me, Bess or Let Them Eat Drones

The Singapore Exchange – a meaningful territorial accord with Asia Pacific. She ends up getting in a fist fight with the Philipine leader, forcing her to decide – like every woman ever—whether she should she say something about an attempted assault.  But she can only make this decision after digging into what appears to be the biggest bowl of cereal ever poured.
Jay Undercover
Bess gets her CIA on and enlists Sadsack Jay to investigate the suspicious death of Kevin from Accounting, a deep cover CIA agent. Turns out Jay is pretty good at spycraft and uncovers Kevin’s real mission.
Duck Dynastys Goes to the Devil
We are rejecting this storyline on the grounds that Henry seems in way over his head. But we don’t trust Ian and his neck tattoos. Not one bit.
Binders Full of Blouses:
The star of the show—the Carolina Herrera dress Bess wore for seemingly 36 hours across the Pacific and back without a wrinkle.
The Orange Pussy Blouse—again, a political statement????
The Theory White Trench – impractical color but we want one.

Urban Nana in Brooklyn, DNA Report, Grocery Trends

Dennis Rodman at West Point

North Korea and Malaysia are in the diplomatic tit-for-tat and guess who steps up at West Point to address the issues?  Dennis Rodman. He offers to broker a meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. We cannot make this up, people.

On today’s Satellite Sisters podcast, Urban Nana is in Brooklyn but Julie’s still got the international news from North Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines,  Lian has grocery trends and Worst Pitch of the Day plus Liz wants her DNA to work a little harder for Operation Sea Turtle.

Julie reviews the latest diplomatic tit-for-tat between North Korea and Malaysia over the assassination of Kim Jong Un’s half brother.  Good news for North Koreans who are now not allowed to leave Malaysia. Bad news for the Malaysian delegation in North Korea.  No exit for you. Luckily, we read that Dennis Rodman is stepping in to broker a meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. Let us know as soon as they start selling tickets to that one. Julie also warns the team at our favorite CBS TV drama that the Philippine government is protesting an upcoming episode.  Fact or fiction?  We really can’t tell anymore. Be sure to listen to Satellite Sisters Talk TV recap of Madam Secretary for more discussion of Tess’ Philippine situation.

Satellite Sisters recommend the Fondoodler, a hot glue gun for cheese.

A hot glue gun for cheese? What took so long! The Fondoodler was one of many products that Liz found in the Satellite Sisters email box and cannot wait to try.

Lian says Jeff Bezos is working on amazon deliveries on the moon but Liz is still not that interested in going. Lian has the Worst Pitch of the Week.  Kegels and kids do not mix.  Sorry, Kegel Bear.  Liz gets her latest DNA report from 23andme and is disappointed that their wellness tips are pretty much Self Magazine circa 1988. Lian’s grocery store trends and food trends include the prediction that “grocerants”, part restaurant/part grocery store are the coming thing.  OK, by why not call them “resteries”, a much better fake word. And Liz reads the spam that came into sisters@satellitesisters mailbox.  Highlights include:
