One movie has Madonna, the other has Supergirl, and they both have scooters! We’re talking about ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’ and ‘The Legend of Billie Jean’ this week and boy howdy do they raise some questions. Questions like: Would you buy outlaw-based merch? Would you buy A LOT of outlaw-based merch? And which movie has the better Madonna performance? All these questions and more are answered in this single episode! Fair is fair!
