Enemies - Season 3, Episode 17

Once More With Feeling, the 20th Anniversary Buffy Fancast presents our take on Enemies

buffy and faith.jpg

The Watchers discuss Angelus’s “return,” Faith’s continued descent into bad-guy-dom. We do math on Wesley’s age v Cordelia’s age. Angel’s acting, Buffy’s acting, Faith’s acting. How dangerous the ruse was, and how would you feel if you were Xander and Willow when you learned that you hadn’t been told the truth?

Once More With Feeling, the 20th Anniversary Buffy Fancast presents our take on Consequences

consequences.jpg

The Watchers discuss why Allen was in that part of town in the first place, why Willow is so upset about Faith and Xander, lounging in leather pants, Faith’s assault on Xander, “safety” words, and Boreanaz’s continued lack of dedication to acting.

Once More With Feeling, the 20th Anniversary Buffy Fancast presents our take on Bad Girls

badgirls079.jpg

Wesley’s here! So, we go ahead and discuss his entire character arc over the next several years. We think Eliza Dushku is the best – she is acting her heart out in this ep. The fat-shamy-ness of Balthazar. Improper test proctoring.

The Zeppo - Season 3, Ep 13

Once More With Feeling, the 20th Anniversary Buffy Fancast presents our take on The Zeppo

zeppo.png

The Watchers gathered for The Zeppo, the Xander spotlight episode. We talk about Cordelia’s comprehensive pop culture knowledge, hair, donuts, the “R” word, teaching kids all the things, and Jos Whedon's feminism. We were stunned when guest Jen told us that Bob was played by Michael Cudlitz from The Walking Dead.

Helpless - Season 3, Ep 12

Once More With Feeling, the 20th Anniversary Buffy Fancast

Helpless_Main.png

The Watchers gathered for Helpless. Buffy is losing her Slayer mojo and Giles is acting weird. We talk about the possible purpose of the Tento di Cruciamentum and what it might be intended to accomplish and whether witty banter is an actual slayer power.

Gingerbread - Season 3, Ep 11

Gingerbread - Season 3, Ep 11

Gingerbread297.jpg

The Watchers gathered for Gingerbread. Mass hysteria has taken over Sunnydale and they target the supernatural. We discuss bangs, how much more interesting this would have been if it hadn’t been a supernatural influence, and whether or not drunkenness is a good analogy for supernatural influence.

Amends - Season 3, Ep 10

Amends489.jpg

The Watchers gathered for a Christmas Miracle! This is an important episode, but not a strong one. David Boreanaz is still phoning it in as Angel and we’re about done with it. This is the introduction of the First and resolution of several lingering relationship questions. We learn more about Xander’s home life and Angel’s past. An amazing performance from Anthony Stewart Head in his scene with Angel.

The Wish - Season 3, Ep 9

buffy-the-vampire-slayer-the-wish.png

The Watchers return! In this episode we discuss the iconic episode The Wish. We talk Harry Potter and vampire pairing standards. Cordelia’s sudden monochromatic wardrobe. Oz’s wonderful honesty. Whether any of Willow’s parts actually belong to Oz. Buckle up, it’s a long one!

Once More With Feeling, the 20th Anniversary Buffy Fancast presents our take on Lover’s Walk.

willow and spike.jpg

Ooops. Your Watcher-Editor Donna didn’t post this when she was supposed to. Here it is now (really posted on Nov 28, 2018)!

James Marsters knocks it out of the park, funny, scary, and sympathetic. And he and Joyce are so great together. This is such an important turning moment in so many relationships.

Revelations - Season 3, Ep 7

Buffy_3x07_003.jpg

The Watchers gathered for Revalations.

The cat is out of the bag about Angel. Faith’s new watcher is in town, and she’s very concerned about the McGuffin. Twists and turns and manipulation. Xander is both horrible and not-horrible in this ep. Xillow continues to not be terribly believable. Angel mysteriously knows things. The McGuffin is not terribly impressive

Beauty and the Beasts - Season 3, Ep 4

Beauty_and_Beast_Main.png

#notallbeasts

The watchers gather for Beauty and the Beasts, a Jekyll and Hyde story that completely failed to display any subtly at all. Xander is in the dog house for sleeping on duty. Someone is killed by a beast and we don’t know if it was werewolf Oz, Angel, or maybe the new guy, Pete.

We also talk about changing male standards of attractiveness in the last 20 years.

Faith, Hope, and Trick - Season 3 - Episode 3

The Watchers Gathered for the introduction of the new Slayer, Faith, in Faith, Hope, and Trick. It’s a super important episode, so of course we talked about Fear the Walking Dead, fashion, Scott, and Buffy’s confirmed status as an only child.

Oh, yeah, and a naked Angel falls out of the sky at the end.

Dead Man's Party - Season 3, Ep 2

302_DeadMansParty.jpg

The Watchers gathered for Dead Man’s Party. Buffy is saved from the awkwardness of her return by a zombie attack. There’s a horrible dead cat, a Jonathan sighting, teenagers invading a dinner party, Giles channels Ripper a little bit, and we talk about our expectations of friends.

Becoming parts 1 & 2 - Season 2, ep 21 & 22

The Watchers gathered for “Becoming” the two-part finale to Buffy Season 2. Liam becomes Angel, Buffy becomes strong enough to kill Angel, Spike becomes friends with Joyce, Kendra becomes dead, Dru becomes a hypnotist, Xander becomes less trustworthy (though we all agree we would be friends with Xander if we knew him). Also, we universally don’t like Whistler and universally love Spike.

Go Fish - Season 2, Ep 20

GoFish_277.jpg

The Watchers gathered for Go Fish and weren’t really happy about it. WentworthMiller is the bright, shining star emerging from the sewers of this episode (at least until he dives into them). We love you Wentworth! There’s a Jonathan sighting, we discuss bicep curls, and CW: casual misogyny and sexual assault.
