Weekly-ish Roundup: Oct. 12 – 25

Our apologies for the less-than-consistent posting of the weekly roundup. There’s still some bugs being worked out, technically as well as on the human side. Working off an ancient MacBook has some drawbacks.

That said, here’s a rundown of the shows we’ve tracked over the past two weeks and how they did on the Bechdel Test and Mako Mori Test.

For a recap of each test’s criteria, see the previous weekly roundup here.

For the week of Monday, Oct. 12 – Sunday, Oct. 18:

Grandfathered: Fails Bechdel, Passes Mako Mori
Note: Down from previous week for Bechdel, up from previous week for Mako Mori

Criminal Minds: Passes Bechdel, Passes Mako Mori
