You know what, I just love reading this stuff: it's like the best combination of intellectual activity and fun I can imagine.
Reminds me of these exchanges from the maligned, but also glorious, Season 4 of Buffy*
BUFFY: [sighing] Anything?
WILLOW: Ah! 'Introduction to the Modern Novel.' "A survey study of twentieth century novelists." Open to freshmen, you might like that.
BUFFY: 'Introduction to the Modern Novel?' I'm guessing I'd probably have to read the modern novel.
WILLOW: Maybe more than one.
BUFFY: I like books. I just don't want to take on too much. Do they have an introduction to the modern blurb?
WILLOW: ... Wait! 'Images of Pop Culture.' This is good. T-They watch movies, T-TV shows, even commercials.
BUFFY: For credit?
WILLOW: Heh. Isn't college cool?
* I say maligned and glorious since the accepted wisdom is that whilst the season itself had many disappointment (the whole Initiative/Adam arc?) and some far from brilliant epsiodes (Beer Bad? Where the Wild Things are? - neither appalling but much worse than they should be and well below the usual quality control level of Buffy), Season 4 also had some of the very best stand alone episodes. Not least of all, Hush and Restless.
