Tread Perilously - ‘Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman: Heroes’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman's "Heroes"

Tread Perilously sets out for a month on the frontier with four shows taking place near or in the Old West starting with Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman and the lowest-rated first season episode, "Heroes."

When hunky mountain man Sully saves Colleen from a runaway cart, she decides he is meant to be with her and not Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman -- never mind she's a young teenager and he's pushing 40! Meanwhile, local cafe proprietor and ex-slave Grace faces the racist slander of local bigot Hank. Will his ignorant screeds run her out of town, or will fellow ex-slave Robert E. take matters into his own hands?

Dr. Quinn superfan Kat Carpenter joins Erik and Justin to discuss one of her favorite series -- even if she admits this episode is not a particular high point. She also offers the slight amount of context necessary to understand the episode and determine star Jane Seymour's accent. Erik introduces his seemingly baseless dislike of actor Chad Allen. He also tells Kat that Jared Padalecki is the new face of Walker, Texas Ranger. Justin makes an interesting observation about telegraph operator Horace. His nephew Lewis, however, gives off serial killer vibes. Kat reveals the actor playing Colleen gets replaced in subsequent seasons. Also, Joshua Jackson's charisma ruins another career.
