Alli and Mary say goodbye to their apartment and to season six of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The season manages to end on someone of an up note: Willow is no longer evil, Xander saves the day, Anya saves the pre-day, Spike adventures elsewhere, Dawn helps, Buffy is happier, and GILES IS BACK Y'ALL. It's weird that it took Willow murdering a human to get us here, but we'll take it. Cheers!
TRIGGER WARNING: Intense discussion of sexual assault and rape. With that out of the way, Alli and Mary discuss moving, pianos, and of course Buffy's Seeing Red and Villains. We're happy to soon be moving past peak misery and into some more fun evil antics. But first, we have to talk the show's depiction of sexual assault and murder of beloved characters. Pour one out for poor, sweet Tara. May someone other than the audience miss you properly.
Start to finish Buffy talk this week for alternate-universe style Normal Again and at-least-it's-not-super-depressing Entropy. We discuss if Dawn has become more bearable over time, if Xander is regressing to pre-season 5 levels of douche, and why it is that Tara isn't simply in every episodes, spreading sunshine and rationality. Hey, we liked these episodes! Cheers!
Alli and Mary talk the inevitable end of Buffy, and what shows could be next on the docket: Veronica Mars? Stargate? Fringe? Alias? Anyway, we'd love your opinion so shoot us an email or tweet. For this episode, we discuss As You Were and Hell's Bells. You know what this depressing season was really missing? Riley. He's back in action, Spike's an evil non-genius, and then Xander and Anya break up because reasons. Grab and brandy or beer and join us. Cheers!
