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!
Friends, welcome to the penultimate episode of Buffy season 5! I wish I could say that we were all suited up and ready to punch that sassy god in her sassy head but... honestly, y'all? Things aren't looking too hot for us right now. Some of us are catatonic, some of us are stabbed, some of us are going to be sacrificed to destroy the fabric of reality. Please keep us in your thoughts!
We have fought, we have planned, we have attacked, and we have defended. But nothing seems to have worked. Glory is in full Big Bad mode and the Scooby Gang is forced to make a hard and unconventional choice; we run. We pack everyone up and flee town in an effort to give us some breathing room, some kind of security. Can we really outrun our problems though? Thanks for listening!
We are in the last stretch of season 5 and the stakes are really starting to ramp up (pun not intended)! Glory, like a predator stalking through the brush, is an ever-present danger, even when she isn't punching anyone. Tara experienced this first hand when the god reach into her head and mentally broke her. Luckily she survived, but will she ever be the same? Where do we go from here? Thanks for listening!
Half high jinks and half desert spirit quest, this episode has a little bit for everyone. While Buffy and Giles head out to learn their deep and introspective lessons from the fabled "first slayer", the rest of the Scooby Gang is being bamboozled by a sex-bot. But...why does that sex-bot look like Buffy? Thanks for listening!
Things aren't necessarily looking up in this episode of Buffy, but they aren't looking more down at least. Now that Joyce is buried, what next? Buffy still has to be the hero, she still needs to save the world. Can she be a mom, a sister, a friend, a student, and a slayer? Maybe the special, super surprise character can help us answer that one. Thanks for listening!
So this is the episode everyone has been whispering about, huh? This is the "just wait" episode, huh? Well, this week the gang is reeling from loss and dealing with the aftermath that can only come about with the unexpected death of a loved one. Feel like a good chuckle or two? Might be a better idea to go re-watch Futurama or something instead. We will be here to talk about feelings when you're ready. Thanks for listening!
