S2E14: “Innocence”

July 29, 2021

Don’t have sex, because your boyfriend WILL turn evil and rejoin his former gang of vampire delinquents bent on destruction. Buffy missed that day in sex ed class though, and now Angel is once again Angelus, the brutal, sadistic killer who cut a bloody swath through Europe. But that’s not all! The Judge is nearly at full strength, and then Spike and Drusilla will unleash him on the Sunnydale Mall. Will Cordelia and Willow stop fighting over Xander long enough to come up with a plan? Or is the mall doomed?

  • The particular brand of slut-shaming that is ’90s TV
  • Stephanie has to chastise Willow and it breaks her heart
  • We want just want to wrap Buffy in a blanket

July 22, 2021

Buffy has no idea that her friends are planning a surprise party for her 17th birthday. Even Cordelia is in on the fun as chips-and-dip girl!

Spike and Drusilla have a plan cooked up that involves body parts and a big blue man. What could possibly go wrong?

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Maximum. Bangel.
  • Willow and Oz might be our everything?
  • Jenny is super sketchy now.

Bonus! Interview with the Vampire (1994) Movie Review

July 20, 2021

Renowned historian Anne Rice set out to answer the age-old question: why are vampires such sad bois? Enlisting the help of investigative journalist Christian Slater, Rice chronicles the life of 200-year-old Louis, along with his best friend Lestat and their plucky kid sister Claudia. From New Orleans to Paris, Louis searches for meaning in his immortal unlife. It turns out that the secret was within him all along: immortality is meaningless, especially if you are very bad at killing people.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The awesome costuming of this period piece (except for Antonio Banderas’ wig)
  • Definitely no gay stuff here, nope
  • Being immortal sucks!
  • As with many ‘90s movies, just a little bit of racism on the side
  • How did they get that horse to jump over that fire??

 

Trigger warnings

Racism, sexuality

  • Why are the Gorch brothers southern? Why are they even here?
  • Get a room, Bangel!
  • Xander has good quips but he’s still a jerk
