This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST: You! Are! There! Vera, Katie, and Livy investigate 6x13 “You Are There,” a comedy experiment that stretches the show’s tonal boundaries. We discuss the forerunners of the fourth wall-breaking reporter, including X-Cops, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and of course the original You Are There, we debate whether this device actually works in the Xenaverse, and we discuss the episode as a satire of media misbehavior and paparazzi culture. Plus: this episode is weirdly connected to FiN???, Michael Hurst’s delightful turn as Nigel, Eve gets catharsis and so do we, what would a serious version of this premise look like?, Gabs loves the limelight!, winks without subtext are annoying, and the Knights Who Say Bend the Knee! They’d have still picked up their audio! THEY’D HAVE STILL PICKED UP THEIR AUDIO!
The power, the passion, the podcast!
