That show about the girl with a “stick” and “attitude”! In this episode guess which show Gerri and Eugenia are talking about? It’s one of their favourite shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer! They have talked about this show before, but as you know they can wax lyrical about anything! So, with that in mind they discuss the strong character growth across the seven seasons of the show and still feel that the show stands up today, yes even with the clothes and the hairstyles! So whom are they talking with in this show, the lovely funny and very talented Amber Benson, actor, author, director and producer! So, they discuss the (at the time) intriguing relationship between Willow and Tara, the shock of her Tara’s death. Tara showed strength of character and took on the role of the stabiliser for the “Scooby Gang” with the voice of reason! Amber Benson is also a big “geek” into sci fi and fantasy , comic books and more! Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Culture Shock Events, catch them at http://www.cultureshockevents.com to see what events they have coming to a city near you.
