Are women portrayed reasonably in fiction or is it a reflection of our current society? Does fiction display the social pressures placed on women or does it create caricatures? Whose fantasies are women characters written for? Are women in fiction written to be the fantasy of men or of women? What things do writers do that transfer the woman into caricatures?
Do women need to be rescued in fiction, even if she is an action heroin? How is it handled in crime stories? Fantasy? Other books? Games?
Why do women in fantasy have to be armored inappropriately in chainmail bikinis? Are women in fiction a female trope first?
How are women portrayed on book covers and movie posters? Why do they have to be portrayed as “ideal” woman? Why are women “underdressed” in comic books? Is making a strong female character only putting a man in a skirt? How do you show the real woman? Does a strong woman have to kick butt in the story or are there other ways to show the character’s strength? What are the kinds of strength that can be shown other than kicking butt?
Is it necessary for a strong woman characters to fall in love with the strong male characters?
Are bad female characters—the woman caricatures a result of malice writing or a result of lazy writing?

The missing Malaysian Airlines Flight? Political correctness? Human decency? Crowd-sourcing? Movie Studio Tent-poles? The return of Kevin Costner? Role-playing games? Joss Whedon? Veronica Mars? Marathons?
If you are looking for YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, this must be the place!
This week on Chatting With Sherri we have New York Times bestselling author of over eighty novels and two hundred short stories, essays, and articles; Nancy Holder. She will chat about her new book; BUFFY: THE MAKING OF A SLAYER. This book celebrating the 15th anniversary of Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series, this lavishly produced book is the first authorized, fully illustrated retrospective of the hit show. Please join us for this fun filled half hour!
Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness follow up on last week’s hilarious discussion about “The Price is Right” by discussing Lily Holleman’s appearance on that television institution, analyzing how she won, what she won and what it means tax-wise for people who do win on game shows.
Then, Dean and Phil wrap up their ongoing discussion of the eight ways our brains “lie” to us every day by discussing stereotyping.
Phil takes time to remember a “friend of the family” who died this month, a self-made man who went from 14 year-old dropout to hairdresser to successful producer.
Finally, next week is our annual look at the top films of the previous year, so Dean and Phil have been watching a ton of movies and this leads to a discussion of The Hunt, HBO’s True Detective and Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing” with Joss Whedon receiving both a tip of the cap AND a stern wag of the finger!
All that, plus Lawrence Welk!?
