This episode is double the fun, so we had to break it up into two parts! This week, listen to the first half of our conversation with Cullen Callaghan of the Gleeboot podcast. We dive deep into teen soaps, the Luke Perry memorial episode of Riverdale, conspiracy theories, musicals, and 90210’s parallels to Glee (thanks to Wilde Rebellion on Tumblr). Part II is where we examine the season five episode of Beverly Hills, 90210, “Little Monsters.” That part will drop next week, unless you support the show on Patreon at the “Les Wildcats” level or above, where you can listen to it right away! Discussed on this episode: the time Kat provided the improv prompt for a "Quick & Funny Musicals" take on Into the Woods at UCB, a relevant tweet or two combining Glee and Lizzo.
Kat and East Coast co-host Pallavi Yetur were joined by Patreon supporter Shelly Myers and her husband Loggins to break down Beverly Hills, 90210 season 5, episode 18 “Hazardous to Your Health.” Sadly, their cat Brandon Walsh (“In temperament, he’s really more of a Steve Sanders.”) couldn’t be there. While Val and Dylan have a Mexican caper, Kelly and Brandon’s future is in the balance (depending on whether or not Professor Finley can be tenured). Discussed in this episode: hacking on-screen in the “Dilemma” music video, Swordfish, and NCIS. Click here to listen to Pallavi’s previous episodes of The Blaze!
