Season 6 episode 7! Something tells me that you hardcore Buffy fans out there have been waiting for this one (jazz hands!). It's the musical episode and it was just as whimsical and emotionally destructive as one can expect from a special episode with a unique premise. Sweets, a lover of theater first and a demon second, has cursed(?) the Scooby Gang, making us belt out our deepest feelings and secrets through the majesty of song. Luckily, we are a close group of old friends with no secrets at all, right? Thanks for listening and for singing along!
Season 6 episode 6! Halloween is here again to bless us with sugar-fueled caricatures of our closest friends. The Magic Box has it's biggest day of sales since it's inception, despite Spike's penchant for nicking the merchandise. But a fat stack of cash isn't the only good news. Our very own Alexander Harris is betrothed! Who would've thunk it? Xander, married before anyone else in the Scooby Gang? The world is truly a magical place. Thanks for listening!
Season 6 episode 5 and we are getting silly! Which one witchy woman finds to be a nice change in pace. But Buff seems to be struggling with it. I would normally try and use some fun words to describe serious stuff. But everything has an air of...absurdity? Buffy throwing back shots with Spike who is playing a seedy poker game with a motley crew of nasty baddies. Buffy being Groundhog Day'd in a first day of retail work. And the caricature of the devil is bopping around, harmlessly glitter bombing folks. Weird. Thanks for listening!
It's season 6 episode 4! This whole time, we were assuming the new Big Bad would be one of us, someone converted to evil, a fall from grace. But, it turns out the true villain of season 6 is capitalism. What a twist! Buffy was dead for an entire summer, and dying is expensive. Luckily, Papa Giles is back in the states and ready to lend his patient expertise to our recent series of unfortunate events. With the gang all back together, we can overcome anything! (Please don't die, Giles) Thanks for listening!
Season 6 episode 3 is here and it brought....something with it scary ghost noises! We can't just help Buffy re-orient herself in this world with some peace and quiet, huh? We can't even go one night without some face slicing, orb throwing, fire breathing spectral nonsense. Luckily this ghosty is bringing some weak s*** to our seasoned crew of paranormal butt kickers. Oh, and Spike is being really cute and charismatic and I think we are all shipping it pretty hard. Thanks for listening!
It's only episode 2 and it already looks like the end of days out there in Sunnydale! But there is a ray of hope in the demon infested darkness because we got our Buffy back. I wish I could say it was safe and sound, but that just isn't how this all works. Out of the frying pan and into the fryer, as they say. Healing is going to take time. Thanks for listening!
Hello friends, both evil and benign! It's time to jump feet first into Season 6 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But, that does indicate the existence of a titular lead named Buffy. What do we call the show if Buffy is dead? What are we without our big kickin', quip spittin' superheroine? Time to find out I guess. We spend this first episode trying our best to get our bearings in the new world. Everyone seems pretty much the same, except for Willow, who has a pretty gnarly 50 minutes. Thanks for listening!
This week we have a special episode AND a special guest. Lucky you! While the Scooby Gang takes a well deserved break from the emotional rollercoaster of Buffy, we sat down with Holly (co-host of Boozin' Bitchin' Book Club) to watch and discuss the 1988 comedy "A Fish Called Wanda". It's equal parts heist, whodunnit, slapstick romp, and crime thriller. Not sure how they managed to fit all of that in, but they sure did. Thanks for listening!
Season 5 has come and gone, which means it's time for a wrap-up episode! A huge thank you to everyone who sent in their questions and to His Most Dilectable One, Jack, for sitting in as Glory. We are both excited and a little bit terrified to jump into season 6 considering Buffy is currently dead and burried. But hey, stories always have happy endings, right?....right?!... Ah jeeze. Thanks for listening!
Hello again for the first time, listeners! It's the season 5 finale 2.0 redux and we have a lot to talk about. Glory has been a well dressed thorn in our sides for a long time now. She has caused us pain and loss, and now we get to return the favor. But at what cost? Every great victory comes with great sacrifice. Thank you for listening!
