Unlike Buffy, Alli and Mary enjoy our whiskey for this week's episodes, Life Serial and All the Way. On the discussion docket this week is Los Angeles' ridiculous rental prices, college music department drama, the scoobies continued cluelessness and how we were NOT nostalgic for more teen antics, so why are they happening again?
Alli and Mary get our tequila shots on to talk annoying neighbors, Buffy merch, and what show is on the docket post-Buffy: Stargate? Battlestar? iZombie? Let us know your thoughts. Then we get to the meat of this week's reviews: Buffy's life sucks, you guys, and it doesn't seem like it's going to improve any time soon. Meanwhile, Willow has lost her goddamn mind, Giles is mentally checked out, and the rest of the scoobies are pretty garbage at empathy. Not Sunnydale's best showing, y'all.
Guilt and resurrection are the watchwords: the Buffy season 6 premiere, Bargaining Parts I&II, is no upper of an episode. Never fear, however, as Alli and Mary are here to soothe the soul with booze and our year anniversary giveaway! We discuss Whedon's quasi-departure from the show, the show's new tone, and growing up into the grey areas of life.
Welcome to the finale of season 5! We've got the amazing could-have-been series finale duo of The Weight of the World and The Gift. Classic martinis this week to focus on Buffy's life-altering decision making, Willow and Tara's reunion, Spike's growth, and the return of Ripper Giles, which begs the question: would Alli and Mary kill each other to save the world? We also discuss our year anniversary giveaway for next week, so shoot us an email, a review, or a retweet. Cheers!
