F*ck 2020!

Happy Holidays!

Well, the title says it all! We do some Q&A with some of our audience. We give away some prizes. We bitch a little. We laugh a lot! This episode's cauldron has all sorts of things brewing, with a sprinkle of All Souls magic as a topping. Enjoy, and we'll talk to you in 2021 (Goddess willing!)

As this is a long episode, we suggest pairing it with last minute shopping trips, your bevvie of choice, and gift-wrapping.

Seriously, though -- have a joyous holiday season, and let's hope 2021 does indeed DO BETTER. You'll hear from us next year, with our thoughts on Season 2 of A Discovery of Witches! Yay!

Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"

A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 7

Season 2, Ep. 7
S2E7After departing France, Sept-Tours, and Philippe de Clermont, we feel road-weary -- but the initial reason for this trip was to go to Bohemia and retrieve Edward Kelley and Ashmole 782. The Queen DID give her orders, so off we go.We are met with a ruler who encompasses all of the deadly sins, Emperor Rudolf II. The machinations involved to soothe his cravings and get what Diana and Matthew need are draining, but our star-crossed lovers seem to believe it's worth it. Is it? Maybe. Probably. Anyway, that's what episode 7 of A Discovery of Witches is about, and our episode 7 review attempts to slog through all of the troublesome trials and tribulations with the Bishop-Clairmonts.Thanks to Kristen Shuck for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy...Full show notes: http://go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/S2E7Informational links:Season 2 Shout Out! -- tell us your thoughts on this episode, the actors, the sets, or the series as a whole!

A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 6

Season 2, Ep. 6
S2E6Philippe de Clermont doesn't suffer fools lightly. Right now, he's got a couple of fools to deal with in his own house: Diana and Matthew ... yeah, we said it! We play the empathy game, put ourselves in Philippe's shoes, and see that these two star-crossed lovers are gonna make a mess if they don't alter their course soon! Like a weaver, Philippe's got a whole bunch of knots to tie. Diana's loyalty: check. An epic sword fight to lower the temperature: check. Matthew dealing with his blood rage: check. A witch added as an official part of the family: check. A wedding: check. A party? CHECK! Also, consummation ... CHECK. Done and dusted! Daemons crying like babies? Also check.Thanks to Debbie Hopper for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy...Full show notes: http://go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/S2E6Informational links:Season 2 Shout Out! -- tell us your thoughts on this episode, the actors, the sets, or the series as a whole!

A Discovery of Witches - Season 2, Episode 5

Season 2, Ep. 5
S2E5As we make the long hard journey to France (while "roughing" it), Diana receives a lot of advice along the way on how to manage Philippe. Matthew's advice sort of fell flat for us, because he's still the difficult stubborn vampire we've all come to know and love. The correct answer -- of course -- is that no one manages Philippe. Also, side-saddles? BOO!This is the part of the show where Philippe demonstrates that he has a pretty good read on the larger situation, and what the couple faces. His awareness and quiet repudiations will eventually put the couple in their place, and (maybe? We can hope) forces them to see things how he does.Thanks to Darlene Cothran for sponsoring this episode, and to all, please enjoy...Full show notes: http://go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/S2E5Informational links:Season 2 Shout Out! -- tell us your thoughts on this episode, the actors, the sets, or the series as a whole!
