Episode 17 - Revelations / Lovers Walk (feat. Michael Holland)

August 3rd, 2018

“You're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love till it kills you both. You'll fight and you'll shag and you'll hate each other till it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends. Love isn't brains, children, it's blood. Blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it.”

 

Spike’s dropping knowledge and everyone else is dropping shoes. First time guest Michael Holland, Manager of Television for Warner Bros. Post Production Creative Services, joins me to discuss 307, “Revelations” and 308, “Lovers Walk.” It’s all fun and games until actual, real head trauma finally happens; Willow makes a reference which should be dated but sadly isn’t; standardized testing might need to be reevaluated; Faith learns a new word, as Nikki Stafford warned us she would; and William the Bloody proves that even evil soulless things can have their hearts broken.

 

Love’s a funny thing.

 

Next: another mystery guest will (presumably) join me to discuss 309, “The Wish,” 310, “Amends,” and 311, “Gingerbread.”

THE SCHOLARS

Whedon Studies Association is a non-profit academic organization devoted to the study of the works of Joss Whedon and his associates. They put out Slayage: The Journal of Whedon Studies, and Watcher Junior​: The Undergraduate Journal of Whedon Studies, both blind peer-reviewed twice-yearly online publications. They also host the biennial Slayage Conference on the Whedonverses, which brings all these incredible scholars together to present papers, discuss ways of incorporating Whedon Studies in education, and basically just geek out together.
