Fangs for the Fantasy: Episode 68

We discuss Game of Thrones and the way Sansa and Cersei have grown as well as the awesomeness of Tyrion. We talk about the Almighty Johnsons that, despite its many problematic issues, is something we love and fanpoodle. And we look at the new series starting of Continuum – it looks like it’s a great start but there are some things we hope they improve but in general we’re really enjoying this pilot.

We discuss out book of the week, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith and the extremely problematic appropriation that takes up the book. We discuss the glorification of the south, the glossing over and denial of atrocities around the world and the putting of Abraham Lincoln on a Pedestal.

Our book of the week we will be discussing next Monday (4th June) is: Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire

Our book of the week we will be discussing on (11th June) is: The Strain by Guillermo Del Torro
