    I really liked reading this one, although I don t buy all of the assumptions the authors make about the shows.Yes, The Bachelor is nothing than misogynist crap No, I don t really see a feminist agenda Sorry.And I m also not so sure that the Buffy Spike relationship was necessarily about S M.But...
