Welcome to I Missed It, the podcast where we watch a show or film that one of us wanted to watch again and the other one missed. We also take a hard look at whether or not the show would be made in today's culture and how different it would have to be.
Join us first for one of Brittany's favorites, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
