This episode finds Alli and Mary bringing it back old school with shots and drunken banter. We discuss the whole damn series, how our expectations changed, and how we grew to love Tara and Faith and became frustrated with previous faves like Spike. We also sort all of our characters into their Hogwarts houses-- was there ever a character that Gryffindor-ed harder than Buffy? I doubt even Harry Potter himself could match up.
We're taking a month-long breather, but stay tuned for Veronica Mars and future Buffy eps that will go over the comic series! We hear Dawn starts shape-shifting... is that for real??
Alli and Mary have finally reached the end of our rewatch and review of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This week, we mourn fallen characters and plotlines, question a few of Joss Whedon's choices, and ponder the nature of journey vs. destination in storytelling. There were times when we cheered and times when we jeered, but overall Buffy is like no other and we'll miss her! Cheers.
Stay tuned for a series wrap-up episode next week before our month break and beginning of new show Veronica Mars!
We've reached our penultimate episode of the Buffy review podcast, where Alli and Mary partake in early-morning beers and discuss whether there was ever a moment in all of Buffy as shoddy as the Scoobies kicking her out of her own goddamn house. To where have the Giles, Willow, and Dawn of seasons past disappeared? Was this all a ruse to lead us to a tender Spike/Buffy scene? Is it amazing that Faith's character is the only one left in tact?
We also chat our upcoming show: 2000s cult classic, the beloved sassy teen private-eye Veronica Mars. Thanks to everyone who participated in our survey, and we hope you'll give the show a try if you haven't seen it, or stick with us either way!
