I’d like to test that theory.

Two to Go (Douglas Petrie)/Grave (David Fury) I’m about to commit heresy. Alyson Hannigan isn’t very good as Dark Willow. The terrible dialogue that she was saddled with didn’t help her. “Get off, superbitch” (a throwback to “This Year’s Girl”) … Continue reading

Bored now

Villains (Marti Noxon) The ending of this is vile. Truly Willow is Dark. Cold blooded murder. Nasty. Coolest scene: Willow absorbing the dark magic and going dark. A chilling and memorable moment. Poor Dawn. The only emotional part of this … Continue reading

Your shirt

Seeing Red (Steven S. DeKnight) The teaser finishes and straight away I’m calling the makers of Buffy bastards as Amber Benson appears in the credits. Andy and I had a very long discussion about this episode after we watched it. … Continue reading

Can you just be kissing me now?*

Entropy (Drew Z. Greenberg) It was quite weird watching the whole of this episode rather than the excerpts I usually watch. That said, I think it was good. It’s not the sort that you would ever put in your top … Continue reading

Eximete! Vis zenobia! Solvere!

Normal Again (Diego Gutierrez) Quote of the season: “You’re addicted to the misery.” I looked back at a review from season 5 and, while the episode wasn’t very good (it was “Spiral”), I wrote about it with affection. I don’t … Continue reading

Um, I’m not sure you should say “sex poodle” in your vows.

Hell’s Bells (Rebecca Rand Kirshner) Another divisive episode, which seems par for the course in season six. I like a great deal of it. I’m not keen on the notion of the demons at the wedding and how they could … Continue reading

My hat has a cow

As You Were (Douglas Petrie) A wise person (somewhere on the Internet) said that there are many ways to watch an episode of BtVS because each person has their own biases towards story elements and characters and different levels of … Continue reading

And if you try, you’re gonna have to go through me first. Understood?

Older and Far Away (Drew Z. Greenberg) OAFA is way down on most people’s lists of favourite Buffy episodes and is often very high on people’s worst ever episode lists. However, I have recently realised that if you like Tara … Continue reading

I won’t tell anyone. I wouldn’t do that.

Dead Things (Steven S. DeKnight) Wow. They should have dumped all the episodes since “Tabula Rasa” and just gone with this one. The difference in quality is vast. Sometimes all US TV series ought to be just 13 episodes long. … Continue reading

Hey, respect the narrative flow much?

Doublemeat Palace (Jane Espenson) “The workers are the tools that shape America.” “Good to know…I was kinda feeling like a tool. And now I know why.” This is not a great episode and it’s no “Beer Bad” (take that sentence … Continue reading
