Excessively Diverted Episode 2 – Clueless

Hello, and welcome back! In this episode, Sammi and Beau take you back to a magical time: 1997, when Windows 95 and Ska ruled alike, and the preeminent adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ was born in ‘Clueless.’ This is one of three or four modernizations of Jane Austen’s work that really manages to successfully translate into the modern era. Slight caveat to new listeners, because of some mic troubles, Beau is not quite as audible in this episode. We’ve since corrected the issue and can assure you that all upcoming episodes are of an excellent audio quality.

‘Clueless’ stars Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Brittany Murphy, and Stacey Dash. Directed by Amy Heckerling

The Good: 

Pretty much everything, from Cher’s bubbly kindness to the recurring joke of Josh’s penchant for Radiohead, there is nothing not to love about this movie.

The Bad: 

This was a reminder of a time when we all liked Stacey Dash. Were we ever so young?

The Ugly: 

Elton, the forefather of what would eventually become the Nice Guy™

Beau grew up in South Carolina but now calls Portland home. She can get by pretty much anywhere as long as she has her books, iPhone and Netflix.
