In this special bonus anniversary episode, we take some time to discuss some of the larger themes that we don’t have time to talk about during our normal weekly episodes.
Discussion Points Include:
- Serial vs. anthology storytelling
- Visual vs. narrative criticism
- TV as a writer’s medium
- The validation of stories and imagination
- Expanded universes and the question of canonicity
- Matt Zoller Seitz – Please, Critics, Write About the Filmmaking
- Emily Nussbaum – Cahiers du Buffy: TV Criticism vs. Film Criticism
- Teatime Brutality – Canon and Sheep Shit: Why We Fight
Next time: Buffy 3×18 Earshot and Doctor Who 4×10 Midnight.
