Happy Wine Wednesday! February is the month of love and it's Black History Month, so we're kicking things off with a show that features one of my favorite, albeit toxic, relationships while also weaving in the history of Black Americans due to an inspired casting choice. Pod fave Terence Johnson returns this week to discuss the pilot episode of Interview with the Vampire. This show is so good and Jacob Anderson is an absolute revelation!
We talk about the pilot's opening hook, character introductions, and the choice of New Orleans as the setting. We share our thoughts on worked well in the episode, including the amazing performance by Jacob.
Terence gives a closing pitch on why you should keep watching beyond the pilot. As someone who has now watched the entire first season after this recording, I wholeheartedly agree with Terence. You should definitely stick with this show!
Of course we close the conversation by getting thirsty. To borrow from Louis, we talk about who would have us seeking ass before absolution and we do some thirst-inspired fan casting for season 2.
Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a great time!
Be sure to follow and support Terence here: his website, his Twitter account, and his IG. You can also check out my fun discussion with him about the Looking pilot here.
And check out recent episodes on The Last of Us, Abbott Elementary Season 2 (so far), a reckoning for Sleepy Hollow, The Bear, and race (or lack thereof) in House of the Dragon. Maddie joined me to discuss the pilot episode of House of the Dragon and we did a Season 1 recap.
