Oh man, things are a-happenin' in Sunnydale! 

We have a not-so-daring museum heist, a movie date with a whole lotta shake, a de-ratting, a LOT of frivolous magic, and some serious structural damage.

Jun 13, 2017

Time for an episode that mixes mind-wipe shenanigans with complete and utter heartbreak, topped off with a Michelle Branch song designed to make Amanda cry.

Jun 6, 2017

It's finally time you guys!!! Tiny Fences: The Musical is here at long last. We sing songs and talk about Buffy's amazing musical episode, Once More with Feeling!

We hope you enjoy it! We put a lot of love and work into this crazy endeavour!

We'd like to give a HUGE thank you to Shannon Kerr for her help with 'Previously on Buffy,' 'Fun Facts with Andrea,' 'My One Complaint,' and 'Who You Are.' As well as her husband Tyson for his contributions to those songs. 

Also thank you to Gian Latrofa for coming in to sing 'Blame it on the Oboe,' and 'Spike Song'.

Here's a Dawn-centric episode where the most interesting character parts have to do with everyone except Dawn....

May 23, 2017

Buffy's trying figure out what do with her life. The Trio want to test her abilities. Hilariousness ensues.

May 16, 2017

Giles is back! He's happy to see his Slayer on this plane of existence, but knows something's wrong. There's an intense fight with Willow, which leads Amanda and Andrea into an interesting conversation about her growing power and continued immaturity. We also meet a group of nerds who've decided to take over Sunnydale, with the help of a demon and a bank robbery.

May 9, 2017

MAGIC HAS CONSEQUENCES! We've been talking about it for ages it seems, and in this episode we get a good look at one of the consequences of the spell it took to bring Buffy back. 

May 2, 2017

Time to deal with the second half of the big two-part season six opener!  

Apr 25, 2017

Buffy Lives! After a short trip to Pylea, we're back chatting about the season six premiere, Bargaining Pt 1

Things are a-changin' in the Buffyverse! We're on the UPN! Willow's the star of the ep! It's WAY darker! Giles is out of the main credits!

Apr 11, 2017

Are you ready for a couple hours of Amanda and Andrea talking about the season five finale, the 100th episode, the final episode of Buffy on the WB, 'The Gift'?!
If you are, we'll let you know that there are more songs than normal, surprisingly fewer tangents, and a whole lot of love for the way Joss brings everything together in this episode.
We also have a little sneak preview of one of the songs we've written for "Tiny Fences: The Musical!" (yes, we're going super-meta for OMwF)

Apr 4, 2017

Welcome to the penultimate episode of season five! It's a bit different from other 'before the finale' eps, in that it doesn't really ramp the action up. Instead we explore morality, humanity and the consequences of magic through a trip into Buffy's subconscious and the relationship between Glory and Ben.

Also, here are some links to a couple things we chat about:
Spoon Theory
Shades of Magic series 

Mar 28, 2017

We're nearing the end of season five, and as per usual we've hit the 'not great' episode of the final batch, 5x20 - Spiral.

Although, there are some nice character moments from the Scoobies, Amanda and Andrea talk about their MANY problems with the Knights of Byzantium, and how it brings down this whole episode.

Andrea brings up the parallels between Dawn and Ben that come about thanks to the massive exposition dump from the general of the Knights...(have we mentioned we don't like the knights?)

Mar 21, 2017

We're talking about "Tough Love" today on the podcast. 

We spend most of the episode talking about the relationships between Buffy & Dawn, and Willow & Tara. (With a little Buffy/Giles on the side)

Amanda and Andrea chat about the interesting way in which some of the characters have matured, and how both of them felt the shift in the argument between Willow and Tara came out of left field. 

Mar 14, 2017

Amanda and Andrea welcome back guest Lauren to chat about robot Buffy, real Buffy's vision quest and the nature of love. As well as how much fun SMG must have had being robot Buffy and how happy we are that Spike's taken a turn back towards the side of good.

Also, warning: Do NOT listening to the beginning of this podcast while eating...weird tangent that doesn't mix well with food.


Mar 7, 2017

Time to talk about "Forever." Buffy's still in shock, Dawn's lashing out and  all the Scoobies are still grieving the loss of Joyce. 

Amanda and Andrea chat about the slightly darker tone the show's taken, the vast difference between Tara and Willow's views on magic and how frustrated they are with Hank Summers. (plus how grateful they are for Angel in this episode)

Feb 28, 2017

Prepare your emotions, today Amanda and Andrea are talking about one of the most beautiful, effective and devastating hours of TV, The Body

Jan 24, 2017

Is it a "Triangle"? Or is it more of a line?

This week Amanda and Andrea discuss the animosity between Willow and Anya and how it comes to a bit of an unsatisfying head in episode 5x11.

Jan 17, 2017

Giles may be getting ready to celebrate Gurnenthar's Ascendance, but Andrea and Amanda are saying goodbye to Riley.
On top of trying to deconstruct the end of that relationship, there's also talk about Joyce's condition, and a lot about how much Xander's grown for the better.

Jan 10, 2017

Amanda and Andrea sit down and review their 2016, which, overall, wasn't that bad, and look forward to 2017!

Jan 3, 2017

Happy New Year! Here's 'Listening to Fear'! (I'm a poet and totally know it ;) )
Amanda and Andrea freely admit that the weird alien/demon aspect of this episode is not great, but it's not alone it's terribleness. There's the terrible way they deal with mental health issues and the all the ways the non-Scooby men drive the ladies up the wall.
However, to off-set that, everything surrounding the Summers women is fantastic, along with the very realistic representation of illness affects not just one person, but those around them as well.

Dec 20, 2016

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. 

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 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)
