It’s your boy, Spike, back in town to wreak havoc and … feel sorry for himself? That’s right, the bad boy has been reduced to emo boy after being dumped by Dru. Circumstances conspire to cause him to kidnap Xander and Willow in the hopes that Willow can cast a love spell that brings Dru back to him. The clock is ticking for Angel and Buffy to find her friends—but Cordelia and Oz beat them to it, with devastating consequences.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • We just love that Spike is back
  • Angel is being a supportive bf
  • In fact, everyone is being super supportive of Buffy, yay!
  • Willow seriously needs to learn about consent
  • Cordelia and Oz do not deserve any of this

Why is Buffy’s hair so big? It’s full of secrets! Buffy has secrets, Willow has secrets, Xander has secrets but doesn’t mind exposing others’ for fun and profit. When Buffy’s secrets come out, it rocks the Scoobies. If that isn’t enough to deal with, Faith’s new Watcher has arrived, eager to criticize everyone and get her hands on a magical glove. Friendships strain, Slayers battle, and Angel finally finds a shirt.

S3E06: ”Band Candy”

November 11, 2021

The marching jazz band, Sunnydale High’s last hope for championship glory, needs new uniforms, and that means it’s time to sell chocolate bars! Buffy chafes under yet another duty added to her oversupervised, overscheduled life when she would rather be watching a shirtless Angel. But then the adults in Sunnydale start acting more like Buffy than, well, Buffy herself. As she and the Scoobies try to figure out what’s happening, Buffy discovers two things: it’s no fun being the most mature person in the room, and she does not want to know where her mom got those handcuffs.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Stephanie is an old and cranky white woman at heart
  • Xander and Willow continue to disappoint
  • Buffy has a poor grasp of the size of New Brunswick
  • What happened to all the leftover candy?
  • Joyce and Giles TOTALLY BONED

When Mr. Trick returns to Sunnydale to organize the first ever SlayerFest, Buffy faces her toughest fight yet: battling Cordelia for the title of homecoming queen. As if that weren’t enough, all of her friends seem to have deserted her for Cordelia’s camp. But not all is right among the Scoobies, for two of them have treachery in their hearts and cheating upon their lips. What happens when the one person you can trust is also out to take your crown?

S3E04: ”Beauty and the Beasts”

October 28, 2021

A mauled marching (jazz) band corpse means a beast is loose in Sunnydale. Initial signs point to Oz, but Buffy when learns there’s another beast out there—a wild, shirtless Angel—she fears the worst. While the gang tries to solve this mystery, Buffy must deal with Sunnydale High’s smoking psychologist and grapple with the fact that not all boyfriends are as innocuous as Scott Hope.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Why are we not surprised Xander failed Oz and Willow??
  • Don’t you rush now to find a shirt, Angel
  • History with Kara: what’s a card catalogue?
  • Green goo: all the cool kids are drinking it
  • Buffy needs better training on how to deal with abuse survivors

S3E03: ”Faith, Hope & Trick”

S3E03: ”Faith, Hope & Trick”

October 21, 2021

School is back in session, but Buffy is still out of it. That doesn’t stop Willow, though, who wastes no time … pimping Buffy out to mild-mannered, eminently forgettable Scott Hope. Maybe Buffy can learn some tricks from the new Slayer in town, for Faith has rocked into Sunnydale to meet the famous “Buff” and get hungry and horny after some Slayage. Unfortunately, a business-savvy vampire and his ancient employer are on her tail, and even two Slayers not be enough.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • How much fun a teenage-focused opening is!
  • Faith’s dynamic with Buffy is so different from Kendra’s
  • Mr. Trick makes a great first impression
  • Stephanie really wants more excuses to use the word “kakistos”
  • Giles. GILES. You magnificent, clever, loving bastard

S3E02: ”Dead Man‘s Party”

S3E02: ”Dead Man‘s Party”

October 14, 2021

Buffy is back in Sunnydale, and everyone is … fine with that. Joyce decides to invite Buffy’s friends over for a party—with company plates, natch—only for the shindig to turn into a hootenanny. Overwhelmed, Buffy wants nothing more than to have quiet one-on-ones with her friends. Instead, she has to fight off a zombie apocalypse brought on by a mask her mother stole—er, borrowed—from her gallery. All in day’s work, as Buffy reassures Joyce.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Anthony Stewart Head’s ACTING!
  • Steph and Kara have different amounts of sympathy for Willow
  • But we all agree Xander can shut up now
  • The zombies are … all right but not really the point of this story?
  • RIP Pat, but rest assured Joyce will forget you by next week

S3E1: ”Anne”

October 7, 2021

The summer has passed and the Scoobies are doing their best to pick up the slack with Buffy gone. Meanwhile, Buffy is trying her best to blend into the background as mild-mannered “Anne.” When she runs into someone who needs her help, however, she seems to have no choice but to dive into a demon dimension yet again and answer the ultimate question: who is she?

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Sunnydale High is hoppin’!
  • Joyce and Giles having a very real conversation
  • Buffy can’t avoid who she is
  • That fight choreography tho
  • Poor A-aron, you never learn

Bonus! Angel on Trial

Join Judges Steph and Kara as they weigh the evidence for and against Angel’s guilt before pronouncing judgment. Is the age gap between Angel and Buffy ok, gross, or illegal? Is Angel culpable for what Angelus does? Do Angel and Buffy belong together?
