Inca Mummy Girl

Inca Mummy Girl

The watchers gathered for Inca Mummy Girl. Best thing about this episode? Introduction of Oz and introduction of his interest in Willow (he's gonna break your heart, Willow!). 

 

More, “Oh, Xander” discussions. How NOT to eat Twinkies. We discuss the actual girl Ampata was probably based on and sacrificial rituals which include a ton of drugs, booze, and food.

School Hard

School Hard

The Watchers gathered for…

 

OMG SPIKE!

It’s Blondie Bear! He’s HERE!

…ahem.

The Watchers gathered for School Hard. This episode is great for a lot of reasons, most notably the introduction of Spike and Drucilla and the end of The Anointed One. We discuss awkward ways to touch your beloved, why you would pick your two most troublesome students for a special event, and “Why is Sheila?”

Also… we really love Spike.

Season 2, Ep 2 - Some Assembly required

Season 2, Ep 2 - Some Assembly required

Buffy’s take on Bride of Frankenstein was not our favorite episode. We talk about dress codes and 90’s fashion (seriously, you guys, this isn’t a podcast about dress codes and 90’s fashion – despite all evidence to the contrary), and ways this episode of Buffy could have been better.

Season 2, Ep 1 - When She Was Bad

Season 2, Ep 1 - When She Was Bad

The Watchers gathered for the premier of Buffy Season 2, “When She Was Bad.” Listen, when Cordelia is lecturing you about being a bitch… you’re being a bitch. Topics include inappropriate flirtation and those really horrible pants Cordi was wearing in the last scene. Also, Virgil Circles the cat becomes a Watcher initiate by rubbing on the microphone.

Episode 11 - Prophecy Girl

Episode 11 - Prophecy Girl

The Watchers gatherered for the Buffy Season One finale, Prophecy Girl.

Buffy doesn’t want to be Xander’s date to the dance and Willow doesn’t want to be Xander’s consolation prize. Buffy overhears Angel and Giles discussing the prophecy that she’s going to die. Cordelia is earning points towards her Slayerette badge. And we have thoughts about all of this.

Also, never ever use Xander’s CPR technique. It’s bad.

Episode 8 - The Puppet Show

The watchers gathered for The Puppet Show. Someone killed the ballerina, and Sunnydale staff is just so done with dead students.

 

Who's the bad guy? Is it the creepy puppet? His owner? The scary new ferengi principal? Or one of the other talentless talent show entrants Gile's has been forced to corral?
