In this episode we switch things around a bit and John Landis hosts the show with Denis, Travis, and Michael. We talk about shooting the last episode first, creepy Ken and the underworld, Lily & Ricky, Joyce & Giles, first apartments, depictions of homelessness in media, Whistler, and you know – more. Because there's always a lot to say about this show.
They Live, Hellraiser, The Monster Squad
No special guests in this episode – but we do close a lot of open predictions, argue about whether or not Joyce knows that Buffy is a slayer, and bring season 2 to a close.
Season 2, Episode 20 of Buffy is all about fish monsters and in this bonus episode, Denis St. John talks with horror comics writer Stephen Bissette about the creature from the black lagoon and his experience co-writing the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Monster Book.
In this episode we're joined by special guest Donna Almendrala @madmacaques to talk about high school sports, rape culture, peeing in the pool, and surge.
In this episode we're joined by special guest David Yoder in a conversation about gender, Quantum Leap, weirder podcasts that have already happened, and the Miss Calendar Situation.
We're joined on the show by special guest @jwithy and regular guests Travis and Denis St. John.
Michael, Denis, and Mary talk through this episode. We learn about the strange habits of obituary-collecting children, how much we like The Witches, and what happens when Xander gets what he always wished for.
I say the wrong episode number. It really is episode 15 even though I keep calling it episode 21. Rebuttals to Bad Eggs. New segment: Buffy Speak.
Angel becomes a better actor. Maybe.
We're down 2 regulars on this episode but their notes live on! We discuss the weirdness of the real life Hellgate High School and what would happen on an episode of Angel Virgin.
Have you ever heard anyone say or had the urge to say ‘daddy’s here?' Trusting coworkers talk smack at the water cooler.
Denis doesn’t know how to spell canoe. Spelling bees for adults are a thing. No one knows the origin of ‘the whole 9 yards’.
If you have any questions, Marti Noxon probably talked about it in the commentary. They could bring Buffy to the point of death and make more slayers.
And so much more...
I still mispronounce Giles. There are lots of observations to be made about the Giles lifestyle. Travis thinks you couldn’t get into trouble in the past.
We imagine what would happen if Giles and Spike were to go antiquing together.
Evil Dead 2
Jodorowsky’s Santa Sangre
Which is worse: death or being a vampire. And is the Sunset Club straight out of a Vampire The Masquerade Sourcebook?
Vampire Contractors work at night and don’t use tools. Is Giles ‘Jack the Ripper’? And John likes to dress up as things he has to explain.
According to the dating rule (1/2 your age + 7), Buff and Angel can date in the year 2220.
The internet is trying to get me to see Buffy spoilers. Oz is a Xander clone. There will be an episode in a Theme Park. Jonathan’s first episode. ‘The guy in the band’ is the character to be in any high school drama, and "can I get a sound check" – means … did I pronounce that right?
We hash it out – the best way to watch Buffy is through Google Play. Cordelia needs to fight back. And the podcast could end now because I want to talk about Buffy all the time now.
We made it through Season 1 and apparently we have so many opinions about it that we have to make it its own episode ;)
Some slight misjudgment, some theories are proven, others are discarded. We finish the first season of Buffy and wrap up season 1.
Cordelia is finally a real person and some girl turns invisible because she's ignored! We must be living on a Hellmouth.
