003: Buffy & the Shot Felt ‘Round the World


Airdate: May 2, 2020

Wiccans Unite! The relationship of Tara Maclay and Willow Rosenberg gave us representation we were sorely lacking in primetime television. During the 7 Seasons of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, the writing always gave us hope for a brighter and accepting future. All of that was dashed with one bullet, one window shattering, one phrase “Your shirt.” Was this the beginning of the “bury your gays” trope or just a beloved character being taken too soon? Kimberly and Sheila (who has never seen the series) discuss it all.

**Spoiler Warning**

Trivia Question:

Fan conventions are a way to meet the stars of shows and fellow fans. What decade did cosplay start? Bonus points if you know what was the first recorded cosplay costume, who they were and what they wore.

Tune in next episode for the answer and what happened when Kimberly attempted to ask Sheila out at a convention.
