‘Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman’ Pilot Review (Ep. 48)

Dolores and Maeve aren’t the only strong female television characters in a western setting. The 90’s gave us Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman. Special guest Vanessa Cole from the fan site Westworld Watchers joins Craig and Heather to discuss the pilot episode. They talk about the history behind the show (6:46), their memories of watching it when it originally aired (10:47), themes of sexism and racism (15:45), issues of class and status (19:00),  Jane Seymour (23:48), Quinn’s plans for independence (25:22), the treatment of Native Americans (29:45), “Sullyclaus” (36:20), and our favorite moments (37:20).
