Innocence - Season 2, 1p 14

September 19th, 2017

 

The Watchers gathered for Innocence, the introduction of Angelus, the outing of Jenny, Angelus’s brutal verbal destruction of Buffy, his introduction to his ‘family’ of Dru and Spike, Dru’s rockin fashion sense, a serious lack of prophetic wordplay, and Oz giving us all feels.

Innocence is one of the most important episodes to the lore and overall arc of season 2, and even the series and the Angel spinoff.

Surprise - Season 2, Ep 13

September 13th, 2017

 

The Watchers gathered for Surprise, the 13th episode of the second season. Buffy’s 17th birthday goes about as well as Buffy’s birthday ever goes. We discuss the choices for Jenny’s character, how awesome Dru and Spike are together. Buffy and Angel are nearly killed, barely escape, and then… Surprise.

Bad Eggs - Season 2, ep 12

September 5th, 2017

The Watchers gathered for Bad Eggs.

Sunnydale students are given eggs and told to treat them like babies. Turns out, they are babies. Baby bezoars (not the medical kind, “pre-pre-historic” parasites).

Buffy has to battle the Gorch brothers, her controlled friends and watchers, and deal with being grounded.

OMWF - Ted

August 29th, 2017

The Watchers gathered for Ted, a truly outstanding episode.

John Ritter is the creepiest bad guy ever, in no small part because of how he almost always plays a fun, goofy, good guy.

There is some discussion of domestic violence, child abuse, and women being believed when they report violence.

Also boundaries in your own home, particularly when a child is involved (just don’t walk into someone else’s bedroom, you guys).

PSA from the Watchers: Don’t fall in love with your heroes.

What’s my Line, Parts 1 & 2

August 22nd, 2017

NOTE: This episode was recorded before the allegations of infidelity against Joss Whedon by his ex-wife.  Once More With Feeling is a podcast about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is not about Joss Whedon. We are discussing his work, not his personal character.

 

And with that out of the way…. Your Watchers gathered for the two parter, What’s my Line. We’re introduced to Kendra the Vampire Slayer, Xander and Cordi kiss for the first (and second) time, Willow and Oz get together, Dru is healed, and an entire generation of kinksters discover their kink during one memorable scene between Dru and Angel.

 

We weren’t drunk, just super tired, y’all.

Buffy the Unaired Pilot

August 17th, 2017

Watchers Adrean and Jack gather for the unaired original pilot of Buffy. This has never been officially realeased and according to Whedon never will be “while there is strength in these bones” because it “sucks on ass.”

Nonetheless, the Watchers seemed to enjoy it.

Buffy the Movie

August 1st, 2017

Watcher Donna couldn't be there for this recording session, so the other Watchers decided to do the 1992 movie, Buffy the Vampire Slayer staring Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland, Paul Rubens, Rutger Hauer, and Luke Perry (had Donna been there, there would have been significantly more gushing over Rutger Hauer).

The Dark Age - Season 2, Ep 8

July 25th, 2017

The Watchers gathered for The Dark Age, the second episode to feature Gile’s old friend Ethan Rayne. We learn more about Giles’ past as Ripper and watch his relationship build with Jenny.

The Watchers talk about a lot of things, including whether shorts count as pants, Robin Sach’s [Ethan] spectacular biceps, our frustration with what they’ve done with Jenny’s character, becoming an adult, dumb things we do when we’re 20, and that validation is good for everyone.

Halloween

July 12th, 2017

 

The Watchers gathered for Halloween, a bright shining point of light of joy and happiness after the last couple episodes.

This episode is significant in several ways, introducing Ethan Rayne, Larry, and Giles past as Ripper. Also, Xander’s knowledge of soldiery things and Allison Hannigan’s most excellent abdomen.

The Watchers also share some Halloween memories of their own. Be warned – one of these memories is super disturbing. Apparently….

Also, I promise we were not playing with bubble wrap while recording. In a totally unrelated note, Mini Reeses cups are banned from further recording.
