S3E04: ”Beauty and the Beasts”

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

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

Bonus! Angel on Trial

October 4, 2021

Angel went from Buffy’s boyfriend to the Big Bad in season 2. His soulless persona, Angelus, stalked Buffy and her friends, killed Jenny Calendar, tortured Giles, smoke cigarettes, and tried to end the world.

 

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?

 

Court is now in session.
