Fangs for the Fantasy Episode 75

This week we discuss our usual TV programmes, True Blood, Continuum and Teen Wolf. We discuss the effects of marginalised writers on TV programmes as well as the limits and controls they work under and how a marginalised writer is not a panacea for a problematic series or portrayal. We also discuss the “matriarchy” on Teen Wolf and our problem with being on the sides of the enemies in so many of our programmes. And our book of the week: Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues by Diana Rowland
