We’re back with a back to school themed episode dedicated to the ABC Afterschool Special! We, as we are wont to do, made it a twofer, and chose two episodes starring one of our favorite actors, Lance Guest! The episodes we discuss are Please Don’t Hit Me, Mom, and Two Loves for Jenny (aka Between Two Loves)! And if that wasn’t enough to get you all excited about chalkboards and backpacks, I interviewed Lance Guest about working on this program, as well as some of his other small screen awesome. You can read that interview on my blog! Hooray, and a big thanks to Mr. Guest, who flashed a lot of that charm that made us all fall in love with him in the first place… oh, and he gave some great insight too! Enjoy the podcast and the interview!
By the way, the essay I was referencing at the beginning of this episode is titled Premature Adulthood: Alcoholic Moms and Teenage Adults in the ABC Afterschool Special by Amanda Keeler. Great stuff!
We’re gearing up to record again… next week (!)…(Wednesday, October 11 to be exact) because I’ll be out of the country at a conference dedicated to TV horror. Life is good, guys! But if you want details on the next episode, just click here. We’re looking for a lot of feedback. Be our friend.
