    In the second episode in our Whedon Wars series, Avalon is up to bat for Buffy the Vampire Slayer being Joss' best work.  Although her vote may not be as controversial as Diana's vote for Dollhouse, she still has to weave through some of the shows problematic - and confusing - points.  Don't worry, we still play a way too long game of FMK at the end, and spend roughly the first 30 minutes discussing our eyebrows.  Don't miss this episode, and watch out for the official Whedon Wars polls to cast your vote!
