Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast
S5E4: “Out of My Mind”

S5E4: “Out of My Mind”

November 24, 2022

When Joyce faints, Buffy is at her side through battery after battery of tests. Or she would be, except that her boyfriend has been ignoring his own symptoms from the Initiative’s experiments on him. Now Buffy has to get past Riley’s macho gruffness, Spike’s single-minded need to blame her for everything, and Sunnydale Hospital’s lack of competent doctors so she can focus on the most important thing: stopping Dawn from wasting so much cereal.

Hear us discuss…

  • Harmony continues to be an absolute joy
  • But Spike’s abusiveness, again, is hard to watch
  • Riley could have been a way better character
  • Is Ben interning for the Chatty Doctor??
  • Joyce better be OK or we riot

S5E2: ”Real Me”

S5E2: ”Real Me”

November 10, 2022

Life in Sunnydale wouldn’t be that bad if it weren’t for my sister, Buffy. She’s the worst. Always dragging me along for training, or ditching me to spend time with Riley, or treating me like a little kid. You think your older sister is bad? Try having an older sister who’s a vampire slayer! Hi, I’m Dawn Summers, and nobody knows me. Not the real me.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Let Anya trade the children for cash
  • More Xander-punching? We could get used to this!
  • Harmony should be the Big Bad of Season 5 or we walk!
  • Sunnydale probate works almost as fast as the coroner
  • Who IS Dawn, really?

S5E1: ”Buffy vs Dracula”

November 3, 2022

Buffy struggles with her reawakened thirst for the hunt and finds herself drawn to the most famous vampire of all when he takes up residence in Sunnydale. The others aren’t thrilled by this development—well, except maybe Joyce—and try to help Buffy break Dracula’s thrall. If they can’t, she might be doomed to a life of eternally bad pickup lines in a drafty castle.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Everyone in this episode is LIT
  • Who is Dracula in the Buffyverse, really?
  • Finally, more punching of Xander!
  • Bite sex: is it sexy? The age-old debate continues
  • If Buffy didn’t want Giles, we’d take him

S4E22: ”Restless”

S4E22: ”Restless”

October 13, 2022

Energized by the enjoining spell they performed to defeat Adam, Buffy and the Scoobies gather at her home for a traditional post-apocalypse movie night. The night is post-apocalyptic, not the movies. But one by one, they fall asleep, and a mysterious presence stalks their strange and sinister dreams. Unless one of them can wake up, their victory celebration might be cut short—permanently.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • So nobody’s going to talk about Riley’s self-surgery, huh?
  • Joyce is bringing sexy back in a big way
  • We did not want to spend that much time in Xander’s head
  • The lore is good. The racism? Not so much
  • We wear the cheese; it does not wear us

 

Trigger warning

Racism

S4E21: ”Primeval”

S4E21: ”Primeval”

October 6, 2022

Adam’s plan comes to fruition as he infiltrates the Initiative and threatens to transform Riley into his obedient demonoid brother. Out of time and ideas, Buffy, Willow, Giles, and Xander have no choice but to attempt a dangerous spell that harnesses their combined attributes and the ancient power of the Slayer line. Can Giles’s magic gourd save them all?

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Spike did too good of a job breaking up the band
  • The reunion, though, is so worth it
  • Riley is heroic here? Stupid, but also heroic
  • What happened to the Initiative employees who called in sick?
  • Poor Adam: you’re no match for One Punch Buffy

S4E20: ”The Yoko Factor”

S4E20: ”The Yoko Factor”

September 29, 2022

How do you break up a band? Tasked by Adam to make sure the Scoobies won’t be standing by Buffy’s side in the battle to come, Spike visits each one and sows the seeds of discord. At the same time, Buffy is having to manage the feelings of her boyfriend and her ex because someone couldn’t keep his big mouth shut about her sex life.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Shut up, Xander
  • Spike is so smart (but EVIL) in this episode!
  • Is it Willow’s laptop, or Giles’s? Stay tuned
  • Riley, we were this close to feeling sympathy for you
  • Buffy is just having a really bad day

Death
