10 things I Hate About Taming of the Shrew will take you back the good old days, when we worried about Y2K, wore butterfly clips in our hair, and became total babes the minute we took off our glasses.

And the even older days where we worried about the plague, wore massive wigs, and women weren't allowed to be on stage anyway.

10 Things I Hate About Taming of the Shrew is a theatrical, comedic, listicle romp through the world of teenage Shakespeare film adaptations, and their lasting impact on a generation. By examining the continuous re-tellings of the same stories from the original content aggregator himself, this show delves into our problematic, cinematic, very recent past. Expect plenty of deep dives even further back in time to see how old prejudices have new tricks, and totally bopping soundtracks!
