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!

In this episode Gerri and Eugenia look at one of what now can be considered an old favourite (yep they do have lots of favourites don’t they?). They look at one of the characters from the cast of Angel, the smart physics student, ex-slave and very brave Fred Burkle and discuss the impact her arrival had on the already formed team of demon busters. Fred, played by Amy Acker brought a softer touch to the team and with her logical mind helped ensure success in many a mission. Yes you have I am sure guessed it by now, that they were given the chance to talk with Amy Acker and yes she is just like “Fred” kind, sweet and generous.
