It's the last episode before Christmas, we're clipless and Andrea sounds terrible, but we needed to talk about "Shadow"!

Joyce is in the hospital and we chat about how that affects not only Buffy and Dawn but their relationships with those around them, especially with all the secrets in this episode. There's some discussion about Buffy villains and where Glory fits into that pantheon. Also, to our chagrin,we can 't help but note that Riley has tipped into a frustratingly annoying territory.

Also, stick around to the very end to hear about something super amazing that Amanda did.

Are you ready to listen to both Amanda and Andrea have revelations about Spike? Then you've come to the right place! 

It's an amazing character-driven episode that delves deep into Spike's history, and while Amanda finally 'gets' why everyone likes Spike, it's Andrea who's brain seems to have exploded the most in this episode. 

Dec 7, 2016

This week we welcome back the oft-mentioned Vanessa to the podcast as we finally learn more about Tara! 

On top of learning about Tara via her sadly one-note family, we also chat about how the Giles/Buffy relationship is stronger than ever and Spike's frustrated feelings.

Nov 29, 2016

There's nothing like a battle with a super powerful, unhinged lady in red to soften the news that your sister's not really your sister, right Buffy?

We've got lots to talk about this ep; the big Dawn revelation, opening the Magic Box, new Big Bad in town, Joyce is still sick, Spike's upping his stalker game. 

Nov 22, 2016

"Out of My Mind"? More like get this chip out of my head! With a weak 'A' plot featuring Riley and some Initiative shenanigans, we get to rely on the subplots with Spike and Harmony, and Joyce and Jaffy to keep things interesting this week.

Nov 15, 2016

Double the Xander, double the fun?! It's all about character growth for our favourite male, non-teacher Scooby this week. 

We chat about confidence, weakness and seizing opportunities this week as we discuss 'The Replacement'

Nov 8, 2016

It's time for us to learn all about Jaffy! (#JaffyForever) Just how does having a little sister affect the Slayer? And how does she fit into the Scoobies?

We talk about that, but with a lot of Babysitter's Club references, and confusion as to why a 14 year-old (even one who lives in Sunnydale requires so much supervision) 

Nov 1, 2016

Who's ready for some post-Halloween, live podcast goodness?! Amanda and Andrea were in Seattle for Geek Girl Con and did a live podcast of 5x01 for a wonderful crowd of con attendees.

There were songs, an impressive dance and some of the BEST predictions yet from Amanda


Oct 25, 2016

It's time for us to go on a journey through the subconscious of the Scoobies in Restless!


Oct 18, 2016

Amanda's confused, is this the finale? It feels like the finale. 

We chat about Adam and the Initiative and how they never quite worked as villains, and the reconciliation of the Scoobies. We also touch on the the sad state of affairs for Riley and the even sadder fate of Maggie Walsh. 

Oct 11, 2016

The WB would have us believe this episode is ALL about Angel being back in town and having a testosterone-off with Riley, but we know there's so much more going on!
Spike breaks up the team, and easily, it just takes a little needling here and there and all the lack of communication that's been building this season works in his favour. 

Oct 4, 2016

Moon's in the title, must be werewolf time in Sunnydale again! 
Obviously, with Oz back in town, stirring up feelings for Willow, we talk A LOT about that (like, a lot) and how it relates to her relationship with Tara and the rest of the Scoobies.
However, we do dedicate a little time to being happy about Riley finally picking a (the right) side, lamenting Adam's lameness and arguing about the Initiative! 

Sep 27, 2016

Do you hate "Where the Wild Things Are"? US TOO! So much so that we could only find 45 minutes worth of things to talk about in this terrible, horrible, no-good episode. 
But we did add some Tiny Fences-style karaoke at the end to make up for it! 

Sep 21, 2016

We welcome back guest Lauren for a laugh-filled podcast for 'Superstar'!

While there's very little real development plot-wise this episode does show us that even when an ultimate authority shows up, Buffy's 'slayerness' eventually shines through. There's also, inevitably, a lot of shrimp talk. 

Sep 13, 2016

We complete our Faith trilogy (quadrology?) with John with a rare trip to Angel!

Sep 6, 2016

We continue our journey through the Faith/Buffy character study that are 415-416 with "Who Are You?"

Aug 30, 2016

Faith's back! And so is one of our favourite guests, John! 

We have a lot of discussion about Faith, and how her actions are dictated by her upbringing, her feelings about Buffy, and not being the Slayer.

We also detour into how Xander and Willow seem to revert to high school versions of themselves at the mention of Faith.

Andrea can't help but note that even though Adam's the supposed big bad, he's dropped the second Faith's back in the picture. Everyone also reminisces about how much they miss the Mayor

Aug 24, 2016

After break from recording Amanda and Andrea are back with a long(ish) episode to discuss "Goodbye Iowa"

Be forewarned, Riley haters there's a lot of praise heaped on Marc Blucas' performance in this episode. There's also a fair amount of Andrea being frustrated with Amanda's devil's advocacy for Forrest and Adam.

Aug 16, 2016

"Wellll, that escalated quickly" That's how Amanda and Andrea feel about today's episode. 

The ladies get into a conversation of science vs magic and skepticism vs faith and how those two 'extremes' are represented in the Scoobies and the Initiative.

Aug 9, 2016

We welcome back Julia to round out the 'Ethan episodes' and discover that the theme of this episode is "Poor Giles!" (we say it MANY times)
Also, it's Buffy's birthday, and for the first time in YEARS, she gets to have an actual party where nothing terrible happens to her afterwards, Giles on the other hand...

Aug 2, 2016

In the aftermath of Hush, Buffy and Riley try to sort out their relationship, Spike pokes at Xander and Willow's place in the Scoobies and a *another* apocalypse tries to make itself known in Sunnydale

Please note, there's definitely an awkward moment where it becomes very apparent that Andrea's mouth moves faster than her brain...

Jul 26, 2016

It's time for one of the all-time great episodes of Buffy: "Hush"!

Jul 20, 2016

Ah, Something Blue, when the follies hit Sunnydale. 

We welcome back Alicen as a guest to talk about the ridiculousness that is this episode. We get some sweet Riley/Buffy moments, and some truly sad Willow moments.

Jul 12, 2016

Your eyes aren't deceiving you! It's a Tiny Fences about an episode of Angel. Granted it IS the 'cross-over event' episode, where Buffy comes to L.A. (this is a Buffy podcast after all ;) )
It's an episode all about 'what ifs' for the star-crossed pair. Perhaps the most fun part of this episode is the fact that Amanda and Andrea clearly don't agree on a certain topic, but the discussion never breaks down into an argument.

Jul 5, 2016

Normally Thanksgiving's a time for food, family and fellowship, but this is Sunnydale! Buffy's attempt to put on the perfect Thanksgiving dinner for her friends is interrupted by vengeful spirits, sad vampires, Willow and Giles fighting, and the overwhelming feeling that she's being watched.
