15: 2x03-04 "The Giant Killer" & "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"

Join us for a Bacchanalia on this week’s XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST! First Vera, Katie, and Livy debate whether 2x03 “The Giant Killer” is a gigantic waste of time or maybe only a tiny bit bad? Sure the pace is slow and the plot predictable, but there's also a significant close-up of Xena and Gabrielle holding hands, plus the novelty of seeing Gabs friend-zoned by her own BOTW! Then we sink our fangs into the trippy frightfest that is 2x04 “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” the show's unique take on the Lesbian Vampire trope. We discuss the horror film history of transgressive female sexuality, the self-defeating short-sightedness of the patriarchy, and how Renée O’Connor would kill it as a Deadite.
