The guys discuss the evolving relationships between Bo and Dyson and Bo and Kenzi as the characters try to save a girl who's been kidnapped to provide lunch for an obscure Japanese fae. Supernatural's pilot gets high marks and both Wayne and Dave vow to continue with the series even though the prospect of ever getting caught up seems daunting. This week's Top 10 list examines scifi television shows that were cut down in their prime.
Bo and Kenzi must learn to play by the rules set down by the fae community, but it doesn't prove easy. Eric Cartman actually works his way into a scifi podcast, and Dave and Wayne discuss their favorite secondary female scifi characters. In a change of course to enable us to improve our supernatural television cred, we will be viewing the pilot episode of Supernatural and reporting back next week.
Wayne deserves the lion's share of the credit for the criteria we used to make our choices, and for the most part, we limited ourselves to characters who appeared in shows that we actually watched. Whether you heard our list in Episode 2 of the podcast or are reading it here for the first time, please let us know what you think.

Dave and Wayne dive right in and dissect the pilot episode focusing on the characters and the emerging storyline. This week's homework revolved around an old X-Files episode that explored the more traditional view of the succubus. And finally the Top 10 Scifi Heroines list is discussed. Let us know our hits and misses; we'd love to hear from you.
