031 JOSS WHEDON AND THE FALL OF POP IDOLS

Joss.jpg

POOP CULTURE: “Wait … this is how we do a Charles In Charge episode?”  Its been a rough couple weeks for Buffy fans, what with patron saint Joss Whedon being revealed as a patriarchal wolf in feminist clothing.  But does the despicable behavior of the artist void the impact of his actual art?  Bob and Tim take a look at this pop cultural fall-out while also, somehow, invoking Scott Baio.  

00:00:00 - PRE-SHOW PRATTLE - numb nut crock-o-duck
00:00:37 - TOPPLING IDOLS - so this is how we’re finally talking about Joss Whedon / “Fallen Angel”
00:06:59 - SODOM AND GOMORRAH PAINS - the transubstantiation of Kirk Cameron
00:13:02 - NOONE LOVES CHACHI - not making Charles In Charge great again
00:19:00 - YEA, YEA, YEA, GONNA HAVE A ROUGH TIME - the perverse monster of Bill Cosby
00:27:16 - BEAUTIFUL ART AND GROTESQUE ARTISTS - despicable show credits
00:35:55 - DON’T FORGET ABOUT DOLLHOUSE - the tainted influence of Joss Whedon
00:43:54 - WHEDONESQUE VS. WHEDONLESS - can Buffy maintain her legacy?
00:52:18 - PRESSURE THE PATRIARCHY - why this conversation matters (and should continue)
01:05:06 - CLOSINGS - Contacts, plugs and no catchphrase / “Walking On Sunshine”
