Amanda and Andrea welcome back Lauren to chat about the excellently mind-bendy episode 'Normal Again'.

As per usual when Lauren comes to chat with us, there are a lot of laughs, but we also have some really interesting conversations about reality, multiverses and mental health. With a little peek into the Vancouver film industry on the side.

Aug 8, 2017

It's Anya and Xander's big day! Nothing could possibly go wrong, right? Especially not in Sunnydale. 

Sigh, time for us to talk about 'Hells Bells' and all the sadness it brings to the Scooby gang.

Aug 3, 2017

That's right! Here it is again! The LIVE version of Tiny Fences: The Musical! Recorded June 10 at La Fontana Caffe in Burnaby, BC. 

A huge thank you to everyone who helped us put this event on, and to all those who came out to see us be ridiculous in public! 

Aug 1, 2017

Let's talk about 'As You Were'...'cause we have to. 

Amanda's really not a fan, and Andrea agrees, but has a few redeeming moments for us anyways. 

Then, the always popular, 'Five Minutes according to Amanda, 'cause Andrea didn't have time to watch Angel'

Jul 25, 2017

Uh oh, Buffy's celebrating a birthday, never a good thing. 

Even though it's Buffy's birthday, we think this is supposed to be about Dawn, she definitely gets the short end of the characterization stick AGAIN. Tara, yet again, comes in and outshines her. 

It's a pretty middle of the road episode, but there are some nice moments for the adults, especially with the Buffy/Tara friendship, plus we get a literal redshirt in Richard.

Jul 18, 2017

Amanda and Andrea finally get an episode that they both enjoy and get a great character study on Buffy and her current state of mind when the Trio try to frame her for the murder of an innocent.

We also get an extended 'more than' 5 Minutes with Angel as the ladies discuss Waiting in the Wings.

(also: please note, Andrea knows that Gavin Rossdale's from England, not Australia, she doesn't know why she mixed that up on the day)

Jul 11, 2017

We rebel against the haters by not hating Doublemeat Palace! WE HAVE REASONS!

Amanda likes the horror style, Andrea likes that Buffy's trying to make positive steps in her life. The ladies also get into a couple tangents about minimum-wage jobs, and the stigma around them. And if you have kids listening to the podcast, be warned Andrea(!) makes up a weird, not-for-kids tagline for this episode.

ALSO! Please be warned! There are spoilers for 'Soylent Green' in this podcast, Amanda insisted this warning be included, despite Andrea believing the movie coming out in 1973 means the statute for spoilers has expired.

Additional info from things we talked about:

Revisionist History: Carlos Doesn't Remember

Revisionist History: Food Fight

Psych

Invisi-ray. trio shenanigans, invisible Buffy, recovering Willow.

These are all things from this episode that we like and dislike to varying degrees...

Jun 27, 2017

It's time for Wrecked. Please be warned, we're not big fans of this episode, but as always we do find things to enjoy and talk about. 

Jun 20, 2017

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
