The Endorphin Report - Romantic movies give us endorphins - even when they suck. Each episode, Cynthia and Daniel (Fight the Future with Dan and Paul) talk about a romantic comedy or romantic drama, digging into both the plot and the romance, and answering questions like: What happens the day after the end of the movie? Which romantic gestures are endearing (ooo!) and which are just creepy (eww!)? Will the couple make it? And does this movie, regardless of quality, deliver the happy-making endorphins we could all use right now?
