Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV

EP23 - Swans Crossing

August 14, 2018

Oh my SMG!! Before slaying vampires, Sarah Michelle Gellar was breaking hearts and stabbing backs in this 1992 teen soap, Swans Crossing! Mike is joined by guest co-host Josh for the second installment of “Buffy Buddies,” as Morgan continues her sabbatical (j/k she’s super busy with real work). In addition to spending over a half hour on the intricate plot of an 18 minute teenage soap opera pilot, they find time to compare the show to California Dreams, marvel over the fact that the main dude is the guy from 90s-kid-staple Airborne, Mike talks about his favorite character on One Tree Hill (and less about why the hell he knows so much about that show), they also try to remember the name of Bridgette Wilson, and name as many French Stewart vehicles as is humanly possible. There’s also some talk of an R-Rated Home Alone.

Cut the Shit: Josh - Mission Impossible: Fallout
Mike - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
