  1. Don’t change. Don’t ever change. Those who have issues can just go somewhere else. We love you just the way you are.

  2. You rock on just as you are – you bring so much joy and fun, as well as fabulous informative stuff and cracking opinions. Thank you hugely. You go Girls!!!

    1. … or is saying “Girls” sexist now??????? I can never keep up! starts steaming out of ears in overload! ;)

  3. Your blog is one of the most informative blogs out there right now.I don’t think anyone should be offended by your snark.Even the critics at rotten tomatoes serve snark in spades,albeit covered in velvety purple prose.It will be very easy for you to just post the screencaps and references,but you take the pains to share your personal thoughts about the costumes with us.Sadly,certain people don’t value your efforts.
    I have taken time to read all your posts and throwbacks and nowhere did I find even a hint of racism or sexism in your words.Even better,you have reviewed foreign films in languages that you may not know anything about,still your comments on the costumes remain flawless.That is something I have always loved about frock flicks.

      1. And that’s what makes you so special.To persue your passion in a way that you can live life to its fullest,while not looking for a career in it.

  4. Dudes, you fucking rock. (Native Californian – everyone and every THING can be Dude.)

    1. As a former Californian, YOU DUDES ROCK!

      I’ve been reading FrockFlicks for, I believe, six years and I have yet found a bigoted racist comment. Inclusion thy middle name is snark!

      Power to the Frock.👊👍

        1. And in the wise words of Bill and Ted ‘You are fucking (my contribution to Bill/Ted) EXCELLENT’
          And to include as M.A.S.H.-ism ‘FINEST KIND.

  5. You call ’em the way you see ’em, and that should be good enough for anyone. Anyone who doesn’t like it can take his/her marbles and go home.

  6. I love you guys. I love you for the snark. I love you for the fucking swearing. But above all I love you for the learning. Never change. Ever.

  7. Will this post summon virtue signallers hell-bent on “purifying” this blog? stands by with edamame and popcorn

  8. You 3 ladies are epic, and your blog is perfect! Do not ever change. I also want to say that this is one of the few places on the internet where I can ignore the “never read the comments” rule. Thank you all for that!

  9. Love you guys. Keep on keepin’ on.

    Off topic, but why do y’all say Raquel Welch was the most famous? I lived thru the 70’s and she was B-list. Her claim to fame was ripping up her costume in ‘One Million Years B.C.’ so that everything showed; that’s what got her cast in those other movies. She started off ‘making her own costumes’ early in her career.

    xoxo to you all

    1. Read our Three Musketeers review linked above — that movie has gorgeous historically accurate 17th-c. costumes, except for hers because she specifically asked the designer not to put her in the 17th-c. fashions. It’s really rare for an actor to have that much say in what they wear in a historical movie. The director, sure, but not the actors ;)

  10. So wait, does this mean you wont warn for things like CSA, and other forms of a abuse and sexual assault? Because even that’s in poor taste like really poor taste and while I do love the critiques and snark weeks I’m not subscribing to someone who takes such acts and traumas lightly just because you think people need to suck it up, please tell me that’s not what’s happening here

    1. Going by the wording, sad to say I think they aren’t? Like since they have the “there’s no spoilers in history” which is technically true (but let’s face it, most dramas are in name and vague costumes only lmao) so I doubt they’ll put any trigger warnings in future reviews. Best to move on and find a different blog

    2. I think their not posting trigger warnings doesn’t mean they take such acts lightly. From all that I have read here, they do not take them lightly.

    3. We don’t warn for anything. You read our site at your own risk.

      Our main focus is on the historical costumes. We may or may not discuss plot elements, depending on if we feel like it. If that includes something we find objectionable, we’ll note our objection, but we’re not going to put any kind of warning up at the top of the post.

  11. I suffer from mental illness but the epithet ‘crazy’ has never offended me unless it is meant to actually stigmatize a person with a mental illness. I can’t speak for derpy, though it and the backlash against it seem fairly new (though retarded is a no-go for me). Also it’s really hard to not say ‘you guys’! It’s not gendered to me because growing up in the northeast I associate it so much with my sister and female friends growing up, and it feels artificial to say ‘folks’ or ‘y’all’ when I am not from regions that say those things.

    1. I say ‘y’all’ bec. part of my family is from the south, so I picked it up from them, but growing up in California, ppl could make fun of me if that slips out! So yeah, nothing is perfect.

  12. I love this site, and you all do such an amazing job of calling people out for terrible and ridiculous costuming (not to mention all the work this is for you guys on top of day jobs). Thanks for being who you are and for giving all the rest of us who love and appreciate this blog things to laugh about when we watch historical dramas.

  13. I’m a relative newbie to your site, but thank the Goddesses I found it! I get to laugh almost everyday and if I’m at work, sometimes my laughter scares my coworkers, so added bonus! Thank you for all your work you put into it. I have learned so much! And if someone can’t deal with a swearword now and then, they need to get off the fucking internet!

  14. You can always disagree with something we’ve written. But anyone who’s saying we shouldn’t critique certain things or use certain words or talk about person or topic XYZ because it’s supposedly inappropriate or triggery or whatever will get shown the virtual door. This is our blog, & we get to call the shots about our content.

    But disagree on a historical point or whether a show is worth watching? Sure, that’s nbd!
