Wolf Lake — it’s like Twin Peaks with werewolves and often nude Paul Wesley. Sold already? If not, you should definitely take a listen to this week’s podcast. Wolf Lake was a little known CBS show that didn’t last all too long, even with a stacked cast (and werewolves). Listen as we discuss wolf statues, aggressive early 2000s rock, and the type of love that can only come from knowing someone 8, or possibly 9, months.
Next week’s episode is a two-for-one-special: the pilot of the original British series Coupling and the pilot for the American remake of Coupling. Send your questions, comments, and concerns here or here.
The Heroine TV Podcast is back, this time with a super-sized Buffy and Angel episode. LaToya (@lafergs)–of All the TV, Pretty Little Liars Annotations, and Offscreenville–joined me to discuss our Jossy obsessions. Do you want to listen to a Whedonesque therapy session, between two Buffy and Angel fans as they discuss what they love and hate about their two favorite shows? And try to work through the pain of “Seeing Red,” Cordy’s hair, and that Connor-Cordy scene that we pretend never happened? Then click on the link above, or subscribe via iTunes.
We start off with a general discussion of TV, weighing in on Pretty Little Liars, Bunheads, Hart of Dixie, The Carrie Diaries, Defiance, Warehouse 13, Elementary, Southland, and more. (Yes, we watch a lot of television.) The Buffy and Angel discussion starts in earnest at the 21:54 mark, and does contain spoilers for those two shows if you are unfortunate enough not to have watched them. (If you know nothing of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel, please contact a trusted professional as soon as possible, to get the help you so desperately need. We are here for you.) As for the Whedon veterans, our discussion includes how we got into Buffy, our season and show rankings, favorite episodes and characters, least favorite episodes and characters, and a detailed history of Cordelia Chase’s hair. Oh, and lots of wig talk, obviously. I admitted to not liking Xander, while LaToya admitted to not liking Andrew. It was all very therapeutic. Enjoy!
Last week, SyFy aired the two-hour premiere of its new original series, Defiance. Before a new episode airs tonight, I wanted to post my thoughts on the pilot. Spaceships are back on SyFy, you guys! With awesome ladies in charge, to boot! More, please.
In case you missed it, here is my Q&A with Noah Emmerich, who plays Stan Beeman on The Americans. He offers some insight into the show, the historical background of The Cold War, and some humorous reactions too.
Today at 5pm ET, join Tash, Tiff, and me for a recap of Scandal season 2 episode 16, “Top of the Hour.”
The case of the week pits Olivia against the White House once again, and explores the theme of betrayal. Olivia and her Gladiators must help a married woman in the midst of a media storm, accused of an affair with a Supreme Court nominee. Meanwhile, the hostage crisis comes to a head. Huck and Quinn shadow the CIA Director, and dry cleaning hijinks ensue.
Is it just me, or was TV insanely good last week? I have a lot of favorites, but I tried to keep the list short. Warning: This post discusses plot points from recently aired episodes of The Walking Dead, Switched at Birth, The Americans, Justified, The Good Wife, The Lying Game, and The Carrie Diaries.
