    S2E06: "Halloween"

    Buffy is looking forward to a night off on Halloween, the one day of the year actual monsters find too cringey to go out. She has a plan: dress as an 18th-century noblewoman, the kind of girl she thinks gets Angel going. But the owner of a new costume shop in Sunnydale has other plans for Halloween, and if he has his way, chaos will reign and Buffy will be too clueless to stop it.

    S2E05: "Reptile Boy"

    Cordelia has a problem: if she wants to attend a frat party, she needs Buffy to come along. Buffy has a problem: Angel doesn’t want to go on a date with her! Xander has a problem: no one cares about how much he isn’t over Buffy. There’s a lot of problems in this episode, but don’t worry, because you know what solves all problems? Ritual human sacrifice to a lizard lord.

Buffy in a New Way!

So I just binged the whole first season of this podcast in a week and it is amazing!! I am loving getting to experience Buffy in a fantastic new way! Although I don’t know how Steph doesn’t remember so much of season 1, cause it is BURNED into my brain, cause I’ve seen it way to many times haha!

But in all seriousness Kara and Steph do a wonderful job analysing the characters (especially Zander and Cordelia), the writing and Joss Whedon himself! I cannot wait to hear the rest and season 2!!

I’m hooked

Being a first time watcher of Buffy along with listening to this podcast, I am seriously hooked. Watching the show with all it’s fun and shocking storylines, while also getting a deep dive post-watch is so fun. Steph and Kara bring a great critical analysis of how this show has aged in 2021. I listen and laugh along every episode. Love it!

Soooo much fun

Kara and Stephanie do a fantastic job and are really making my rewatch a lot of fun. I’ve been trying to watch alongside the podcast so that the whole episode is fresh in my mind when they discuss it. Great job girls!!! Keep it up
