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

"Do you love me?" - Moloch

The watchers gathered to watch Willow get catfished by an ancient demon trapped in a book then released into the terrifying wilds of 1997's internet.

In addition to the episode, we talk about wardrobe (our own and the show), that Xander is growing into the character we remember loving, the BS book v computer debate and the BS 'dangers of the internet' theme that kept popping up in the 90's.

OMWF - Episode 6 - Angel

April 18th, 2017

 Angel and Joyce

The Watchers gathered for Angel - the mythology episode that revealed Angel's vampiric truth. 

We discuss racial slurs, proper semi-automatic pistol firing technique, Hamilton (but, c'mon. I mean... we always discuss Hamilton), 90's fashion (another thing we always do), Problematic Xander is problematic, why Angel doesn't tell Buffy that Darla has permission to come into her house, and how it's hard to take Neidermeyer seriously as the Master (spoiler - it's cause he's Neidermeyer)


Darla looking all cute in her schoolgirl outfit.

Cause I'm a creep...


OMWF - Episode 5 - The Pack

April 11th, 2017

Xander got hot all of a sudden. 


We talk about the attraction of bad boys, the non-benefits of forgetting, and whether lines where crossed by Xander.

Willow is still smart, Buffy is kind, and when not possessed by an evil hyena spirit, Xander is good.


OMWF - Ep 4 - Never Kill a Boy on the First Date

April 4th, 2017


"The Five will die, and from their ashes the Anointed shall rise."

...but in the meantime, Buffy has a date and none of the men in her life are OK with it.

Conversation topics include Sunnydale High's dress code, which Hogwart's houses the Scooby Gang would belong to, which Hogwart's houses the Watchers would belong to, remaining friends after a break up, and whether Owen should have just joined up with the Scooby Gang.

Also, we should really learn to listen to each other more and be good allies and people worthy of having an ally.


Also, SMG is super short.





OMWF - Episode 3 - Teacher’s Pet

March 28th, 2017

The Watchers discuss Teacher's Pet. A new teacher comes in to teach biology, and she plans to teach Xander a LOT about biology. In this episode the Watchers discuss the difficulties of being a teenager, including the stigma attached to virginity, Angel's bizarre devotion to being cryptic, The Jacket, and a lot of talk about Xander's character.

Ms. French and Xander

Also in this episode - it's super important to listen to each other. The more you know...

This is super inappropriate


OMWF - Episode 2 - The Witch

March 21st, 2017


Buffy wants to be a cheerleader, but there's a witch in her way.

Introduces the character of Amy, who will be influential throughout the series.

Xander continues to be a teenage boy, Cordilia continues to be the queen of Sunnydale High, even while blind, and Willow continues to be a quiet badass.
