Graduation Day Part 2

I am surprised to say this but I’m relieved that this season is over. The Buffy Angel romance did absolutely nothing for me – and is responsible for the sappiest BtVS moments ever. And sap has to be Brief Encounter … Continue reading

Graduation Day Part 1

Buffy utterly surrenders the moral high ground as soon as she decides that she should murder Faith to save her “lover”. The fact that she fails to actually kill Faith does not mitigate what she does. This is no Ted … Continue reading

The Prom

I assume that I will never get “The Prom”. There is plenty to like about it: Joyce isn’t unreasonable, she just asks Angel to think about what he is doing with a teenage girl; Angel’s subsequent nightmare is genuinely horrific; … Continue reading

Choices

Willow is terribly clever, or at least, academically brilliant. Well, I think she is, the episode is a little unclear on this fact. Wesley was right. Willow (nobody) is worth the lives of thousands. Oz had no right to make … Continue reading

Earshot

Danny Strong is great. Somehow, seeing Jonathan in full-on pity me mode, it is rather wonderful to think of Danny’s great success as a scriptwriter. Now, was it in the original script to have the misdirection so blatant? A telescopic … Continue reading

Consequences

This was a great episode. A perfect mix of everything that BtVS does so brilliantly. I could try to write more but here’s some screencaps instead. Rewind [This was a very lazy review.]

Bad Girls

S3 is maintaining its disappointing run. I genuinely thought it was one of my favourite seasons but very little has been thrilling me. It simply hasn’t been appointment TV which goes a long way to explaining the long gap between … Continue reading

The Zeppo

I tend not to read my old reviews before writing a new one but I did in this case and, boy, did I not like “The Zeppo”. However, while Xander’s character demolition and Cordelia’s ugly behaviour are still bothersome, the … Continue reading
