This week's episodes finally deal with Veronica's roofie and rape at Shelly Pomroy's party. Turns out it was everyone and no one, which is, we suppose, in keeping with Veronica Mars' various themes. The mystery puts a strain on V's ever-growing relationship with Logan, who himself seems to have doubled-down on being Team Veronica. We also get some nice Wallace scenes, as per usual, and Weevil coming to the rescue. Duncan is also around fresh from Cuba, and he is not taking the reveals of what happened at the party and L/V's relationship too well. Welcome back, D!

Dec 19, 2017

Mary's season-long Logan grudge is tested this week as the Veronica/Logan relationship kicks into gear. Spoiler alert: Mary remains skeptical. These episodes also test our patience with Veronica herself, as her selfishness and single-mindedness are put in the spotlight. This brings a discussion of the heroines of our two reviewed shows, Veronica Mars and Buffy Summers, and their ideas of justice and empathy. Additionally, 90s heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas shows up to 21 Jump Street Neptune High.  

Dec 12, 2017

Alli and Mary discuss how surprising it is that the show lacks focus on Veronica's sexual assault on the party, particularly as it relates her to relationship with the male and female students at the school. In that vein, Veronica and Logan continue to return to a friendly relationship, V pulls through for Wallace in an over the top school prank war, and Veronica tries and fails to run with the big boys at Kane software. Is it weird that head of Kane security and adult grown man Clarence Wiedman has a 17-year-old nemesis? You decide. 

Dec 5, 2017

Special guests Anie and Katie join us this week to chat beer varieties and review Veronica Mars episodes Mars Vs. Mars and Ruskie Business. In plot lines that do not hold up well, we have Parks and Rec alum Adam Scott as a skeezy teacher Veronica tries to defend against Gossip Girl alum Leighton Meester. Not V's most shining moment. Elsewhere, Logan and Veronica set aside differences to investigate Lynn Echolls' potential suicide. This brings us our very first Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor: hey, it's Willow! We'll drink to that.

 

Fun drinking rule this week: take a shot every time we talk about Leo "Marble Mouth" Schmidt. Cheers! 

Nov 28, 2017

The Packers still suck, y'all. Alli and Mary lament the loss of Rodgers and how football can drive you to drink.

On Veronica Mars, Mary's theories ramp up as we learn a bit more backstory on Weevil and Lilly's relationship, Lilly and Logan's relationship, and Duncan's secret rage blackouts. Kristen Bell gives us a Frozen preview by singing "One Way or Another" to the aughts-classic "high school rich kid secret society", seen also in Gilmore Girls among others. In other news, Veronica has all sorts of fun fashion in these eps from the bad (cammo skirt) to the good (princess leia buns). Cheers!

Nov 21, 2017

Alli and Mary chat the Creature Features Buffy-inspired art show in Los Angeles (check out pics on our twitter & insta) and give snaps to some of our new/updated reviewers. We appreciate you guys!

Next, we talk Mary's Veronica Mars theories, Alli coveting V's style aesthetic, Logan and Weevil's poker mystery, Mac's disappointing storyline and super cute love interest deputy Leo (aka New Girl's Schmidt). Cheers!

Nov 14, 2017

Alli and Mary chat Wisconsin's Spotted Cow beer, all-nighters, and fun Christmas plans like Medieval Times and watching Krampus. Then, for Veronica Mars, we meet new girl-buddies Mac and Meg. The former thrives on taking 09-ers for their mad money and the latter is nice, which is a big accomplishment by itself for a rich kid at Neptune High. Later, Aaron Samuels from Mean Girls gets roped into a cult and we learn a valuable lesson that seems to boil down to: hey, cults aren't all bad! Interesting choice, Vmars.  

Nov 7, 2017

Alli and Mary get on a real tangent this week about the Packers without Aaron Rodgers, fantasy football, and Alli's general winning percentage. The Vmars goodness starts at about 20 min, so feel free to skip ahead.

Veronica Mars continues its tradition of casting monster talent this week with Jessica Chastain, who unfortunately finds herself in a mostly boring mystery. The first ep, however, is much more interesting as we learn about Logan's Tragic Backstory (TM) and that even in an episode named after him Duncan manages to fade into the background. 

Oct 31, 2017

Happy Halloween! While this week's eps of Veronica Mars may not be super-spooky, we do experience the disappearance of Veronica's trust of pretty much everyone after pretty-boy Troy turns out to be a lying douche. We also get some extremely dated video game club action with some hardcore Alias-style costuming as Wallace dresses up as a dork, while Veronica gets to be a co-ed, a frazzled assistant, and a nerd-magnet in a schoolgirl outfit. Logan and Veronica also declare a mini-detente to bring us a sweet vid of happy wildchild Lilly Kane. RIP, Lilly! 

Grab a drink and join us. Cheers!

Oct 24, 2017

The podcast is back, now with 50% less exposition and 100% more Paris Hilton! Hey, remember the 2000s, when we all had flip phones and had to care on some level about Paris Hilton? Even Veronica Mars was not immune. Other than that, we've got some solid episodes with Veronica coming through for her new buddy Weevil, getting to know cute new boy Troy, and recruiting Wallace for private-eye shenanigans. Meanwhile, Duncan goes off his medication, hallucinates Lilly, and jumps right back into his medication. Also, Keith flirts with the school staff.  

Oct 17, 2017

Brand new season of Must Be Tuesday starts today, as we say a fond goodbye to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and an excited hello to Veronica Mars.

Episode one goes over the exposition-heavy pilot, as we're introduced to sassy and vindictive high school detective Veronica Mars, sarcastic asshole Logan, former white-knight boyfriend Duncan, Daddy Keith, frenemy Weevil, and ultimate best-buddy Wallace.

Grab a beer and join first-time watcher Mary and seasoned VM fan Alli!

Sep 20, 2017

This episode finds Alli and Mary bringing it back old school with shots and drunken banter. We discuss the whole damn series, how our expectations changed, and how we grew to love Tara and Faith and became frustrated with previous faves like Spike. We also sort all of our characters into their Hogwarts houses-- was there ever a character that Gryffindor-ed harder than Buffy? I doubt even Harry Potter himself could match up. 

 

We're taking a month-long breather, but stay tuned for Veronica Mars and future Buffy eps that will go over the comic series! We hear Dawn starts shape-shifting... is that for real??

Sep 12, 2017

Alli and Mary have finally reached the end of our rewatch and review of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This week, we mourn fallen characters and plotlines, question a few of Joss Whedon's choices, and ponder the nature of journey vs. destination in storytelling. There were times when we cheered and times when we jeered, but overall Buffy is like no other and we'll miss her! Cheers.

 

Stay tuned for a series wrap-up episode next week before our month break and beginning of new show Veronica Mars!

Sep 5, 2017

We've reached our penultimate episode of the Buffy review podcast, where Alli and Mary partake in early-morning beers and discuss whether there was ever a moment in all of Buffy as shoddy as the Scoobies kicking her out of her own goddamn house. To where have the Giles, Willow, and Dawn of seasons past disappeared? Was this all a ruse to lead us to a tender Spike/Buffy scene? Is it amazing that Faith's character is the only one left in tact?  

 

We also chat our upcoming show: 2000s cult classic, the beloved sassy teen private-eye Veronica Mars. Thanks to everyone who participated in our survey, and we hope you'll give the show a try if you haven't seen it, or stick with us either way!

Aug 29, 2017

Real talk friends and listeners: what on Earth was this show thinking with the character of Spike? Alli and Mary have our first real Buffy-division of thinking over whether Spike should just die already, or if the scooby gang needs to nut up and get over their issues. This leads to one of our longer episodes as we discuss revenge, love, redemption, cost and outcome, and terrible, terrible plan-making. Also, Faith is back! Grab a drink, 'cause it's a long one! Cheers.

Aug 22, 2017

We'd love to hear your thoughts on our next show! Veronica Mars, Fringe, Charmed, Alias, True Blood, etc are on the docket; please let us know your thoughts w/this quick survey: Survey Found Here!

 

This week, we talk our experience watching Farscape, the difference between binge-watching and watching week-to-week, and how the concept of spoilers is just lost on some people. Over with Buffy, we watch Get It Done and Storyteller, which feature Buffy's stress, the Scooby-gang's usefulness breakdown, and a filler episode featuring Andrew. Cheers!

Aug 15, 2017

We'd love to hear your thoughts on our next show! Veronica Mars, Fringe, Charmed, Alias, True Blood, etc are on the docket; please let us know your thoughts w/this quick survey: Survey Found Here!

 

This week's Buffy episodes, The Killer In Me and First Date, deal with Spike's chip, Buffy's attraction to bad boys, Willow's Tara-guilt, and whether Giles is The First. It's been months, guys! Months! Give the dude a high five or something, damn. Grab a beer and join in-- cheers!

We'd love to hear your thoughts on our next show! Veronica Mars, Fringe, Charmed, Alias, True Blood, etc are on the docket; please let us know your thoughts w/this quick survey: Survey Found Here!

On this week's ep, we have beers and talk Showtime and Potential. Big questions include: Can you enjoy Spike and Buffy post-assault if the show doesn't care? Why has Buffy lost her trademark compassion? Was there ever a stupider, more mythology-confusing idea than the potential slayers? We say no.

Aug 1, 2017

Top of show chat includes HBO, True Blood, Game of Thrones (no spoilers!) and nudity. Then we've got beer and gin for discussion of this week's Buffy reviews of Never Leave Me and Bring On the Night. So, real talk: the watcher's council as described in season 7 is objectively super creepy, right? So we've got potentials, the first evil, Spike kidnapping and Buffy getting her ass handed to her. Cheers!

Jul 25, 2017

We sweat it out no-AC style while discussing this week's Buffy eps of Conversations with Dead People and Sleeper. We talk millennial observations, Spike as a character without a path, whether Buffy is a hypocrite if the evil in question is her love interest, and Anya's stellar sleuthing. 

Jul 18, 2017

This week Alli and Mary talk the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, the variety of up-next show considerations (Veronica Mars, Fringe, Alias, etc), and whether we could handle the craziness of a convention. Of course, we also talk Buffy season seven episodes Selfless and Him: Anya backstory and high school drama ahoy! Cheers. 

Jul 12, 2017

This week, Alli and Mary are joined by very special guest and cocktail maker, Janet Hartmann (Alli's mom). We get some insights from a first-time viewer of Buffy for the episodes Same Time, Same Place and Help. Verdict: a fan of Dawn and Spike, not a fan of the skin-peeling demon. Join for our discussion of Minnesota's draconian liquor laws, fantasy football, and technical difficulties. Check out a pic of our Pretty in Pink Blood cocktail on twitter or Alli's instagram. 

Jul 6, 2017

What day is it again? The fourth of July holiday leaves us with a weird America-celebrating work week that forces Must Be Tuesday to be Hey, It's Wednesday. Nevertheless, Alli and Mary discuss Buffy's season seven premiere, Lessons, as well as Beneath You. The show returns to its campy horror roots and brings back the joy. Sunnydale High returns at the forefront with Dawn at school, Xander working construction, Buffy with a shiny new job, and Spike crazy in the basement. Celebration shots for a couple of fun episodes. Cheers!

Jun 27, 2017

Alli and Mary say goodbye to their apartment and to season six of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  The season manages to end on someone of an up note: Willow is no longer evil, Xander saves the day, Anya saves the pre-day, Spike adventures elsewhere, Dawn helps, Buffy is happier, and GILES IS BACK Y'ALL. It's weird that it took Willow murdering a human to get us here, but we'll take it. Cheers!

Jun 20, 2017

TRIGGER WARNING: Intense discussion of sexual assault and rape. With that out of the way, Alli and Mary discuss moving, pianos, and of course Buffy's Seeing Red and Villains. We're happy to soon be moving past peak misery and into some more fun evil antics. But first, we have to talk the show's depiction of sexual assault and murder of beloved characters. Pour one out for poor, sweet Tara. May someone other than the audience miss you properly.
