Next Week!

Our next class begins next Thursday! I'm not sure about the room yet - it'll be best to check in at the main desk in the Jack Hunt Campus Center when you arrive Thursday night. Class will follow our usual format of a quick overview of characters and themes, followed by watching the episode. We'll then take a brief break, then come back for what is sure to be a spirited discussion about how families are portrayed in the work of Joss Whedon.

This go-round, we'll be moving beyond BUFFY to include ANGEL and FIREFLY. Each episode will get our attention for two weeks. We'll start with the BtVS episodes "Pangs" (Season 4) and "Family" (Season 5). Then we'll move on to the world of ANGEL and focus on "Through the Looking Glass" (Season 2) and "Fredless" (Season 3). Finally, we'll wrap up with a look at Whedon in space with "Safe" and "Out of Gas" (alas, both from Season 1, as FIREFLY only got about half a season - trust me, you'll wish there was more!)

Please - tell your friends! There's plenty of room left. See you there!
