S1 E5 – What? No Room Service?
Okay, I’m going to stop saying that we release at 0:01 Fridays, Japan time, because realistically, it’s not going to happen. In fact, this episode would not have made it to release until the end of September if Joan Chen hadn’t agreed to take over editing duties from me. So, thanks for your patience. You can expect weekly episodes, but just not maybe on a strict schedule until Season 2, which will undoubtedly (doubtedly) benefit from better planning. Also, we swear a bunch. As usual. In this week’s episode, we discuss Chapters 12 – 15 of Wuthering Heights. Andrew gives his report in the form of a religious sermon (delivered by an idiot), Andrew threatens to burn Daniel’s house down during a disagreement on Heathcliff’s relative culpability in the mess that is his relationship with Cathy, and we learn the significance of Heathcliff being “found” in Liverpool particularly.
