Wanted to love this

This has a lot going for it: no inane personal banter between the hosts, a good going over of the themes etc....but I was completely put off the host J being a creep. From episode one he cannot help but comment on how attractive each female character is, when he TALKS about any female character he always lists her attractiveness first (before ability, intelligence, strength.) Example: episode Nightmares' Cordelia's hair: "that's a woman's fear."
It was just so offputting generally, but ESPECIALLY for a series that showcases women in this amazing way. Yet this guy distills them down to their attractiveness to other characters or him as a viewer.

The other guy was great.

You guys deserve five dustings!!

I just want to say how much I appreciate the professionalism of the way that J. and Brian podcast. The formatting is organized and well thought out, their comments and analysis are relevant and smart, and their jokes are hilarious and appropriate.
I've been listening to other podcasts while I wait for Continuous Play to update their Buffy Retrospective, and I have to say that they've all fallen flat compared to The Art Of Slaying.
This is prime, wonderful stuff here. Thank you so much!!

Good, but could be better.

I would've given them 5 stars, but it seems like they're very unprepared sometimes. At some episodes they refer to their "notes" but sometimes it seems like they haven't watched the episode for years because they incorrectly quote pretty well known lines from the show, and sometimes when talking about the plot, it's just wrong. Otherwise, it's nice to see people still talking about this show so seriously and so extensively.
