Becoming Part II

This is awesome – just chock full of great stuff – Spike switches sides, Joyce finds out, Spike and Joyce sit in silence, Giles gets tortured, Giles gets tricked, Willow gets magical, Xander lets Willow down, there is a great … Continue reading

Becoming Part I

Why is Willow still teaching? I know nothing about the US education system but it doesn't seem particularly likely. This episode tells us all about Angel and that is as interesting as that sounds. Buffy falls for an old trick … Continue reading

Go Fish

Rather like the monsters in the boys' bodies, there is a great episode struggling to come out of this one. It tries to deal with male entitlement and victim blaming but as far as I am concerned it fails miserably … Continue reading

I Only Have Eyes For You

As I peruse Screencap Paradise (who are the best) I am reminded that sometimes Buffy's hair is rather horrible; there are unexplained occurrences that surely have nothing to do with poltergeists (snakes, wasps, etc); there is lot of emoting; Drusilla … Continue reading

Killed By Death

I don't really have much to say about this. I'd be happy never to see it again but on the other hand it has loads of great Cordelia moments from banging on about Buffy's thing on her face to annoying … Continue reading

Passion

Oh for the days when I wasn't spoiled for Buffy because back then Jenny's death was a genuine shock. Unlike Joyce's and unlike Tara's. This is a creepy and terrifying episode although I was distracted when Adam pointed out that … Continue reading

Phases

The werewolf hunter wasn’t exactly a nuanced villain but otherwise this was a fine episode. “He-he said he was going through all these changes. Then he went through all these…changes.” Willow is getting more and more confident: when Giles asks … Continue reading

Innocence

What is bad about this episode? Erm, either the line "and wear something trashy…er" or the costuming that doesn't match the line (she's wearing a twin-set for heaven's sake) or the continual characterisation of Cordelia as slutty (or at least … Continue reading

Surprise

So, thank goodness things are coming to a head. I am not much of a romantic so I find it hard to watch (or maybe even care) about soppy Buffy and Angel (I'm clearly no Willow on that front). I … Continue reading
