School Hard (story by Joss Whedon, written by David Greenwalt)
I see...so this is the reason why I disliked Spike and Drusilla in the early days: bad, bad, bad accents. At least Spike’s modulated away from this Cary Grant impersonation but Drusilla’s was always barking. Juliet Landau is inexplicably bad as Dru (what were she and Joss thinking?) though I admit with a bit of work I can just about put up with her in later episodes.
The action wasn’t very well put together; I was never entirely sure where any one was in relation to the others.
Good things: Cordelia praying, Joyce with an axe and Colin getting dusted.
