KCTVReview Episode 1: Domestically-Scaled Menace

Here it is: The inaugural episode of my brand-new podcast, Kat and Curt’s TV Re-View. I talked a bit about this project in an earlier post, but in a nutshell, blogger Curtis Weyant and I will be walking each other through New Doctor Who and Buffy the Vampire Slayer one episode at a time, me introducing him to the Doctor and he introducing Buffy to me. In this first episode, titled “Domestically-Scaled Menace,” we talk a little bit about the idea behind the podcast and our methodology, but most importantly give some (I think pretty fascinating) historical background on each show, laying the groundwork for how and why these shows were created (or, in the case of New Who, regenerated) and why we think they’re perfectly suited for some cross-pollinated critical analysis. We cover everything from the legacy of Doctor Who in British television and its trademark mix of the magical and the mundane to both scare and inspire children, to Joss Whedon’s pre-Buffy writing career and some of the reasons he wanted to tell this odd story about a superhero Valley Girl in the first place. Whether you’re a Whedonite, a Whovian, both or neither, I sincerely hope you’ll join us for this first episode, subscribe to future posts, and watch along with us.
