Following up on the interview with Maria Tatar and thinking about how current television is re-using these themes - I don't watch much network or cable tv but do watch a lot of PBS. I heard the clip from -forget which current show- where Red Riding Hood is afraid of becoming the wolf so builds a cage for herself. It made me think of a British cop show (Scott & Bailey). This week's episode had one of the detectives, a woman who had been terrorized by an ex-boyfriend, accused of beating him half to death. The night this happened, she had been drinking (again) and forgot what happened. She worried about what she was capable of when she drank, and whether she might in fact have done the beating. Turned out not, but definitely a theme I heard in this week's show.
Thanks so much for these great programs. You are my "church" on Sunday mornings, for several years now.
