Amanda and Andrea welcome new guest, Marina, to discuss Beauty and the Beasts.
In this pseudo-sequel to Phases, the ladies talk about the nature of beasts and how it's represented in the three male characters, Oz, Pete and Angel. Unsurprisingly, the ladies skirt around and then talk about the abuse/therapy parts of this episode as well.
We find out that Marina's favourite character is Oz (much to Andrea's glee) and her Buffy 'origin' story. The ladies have a TON of quotes for this episode, so sit back, relax and enjoy!
"This podcast is brought to you by..."
The girls welcome, as the first guest for season 3, fan-favourite John as they meet new slayer Faith, sassy vamp Mr. Trick and new love interest Scott Hope.
On top of chatting about how much they love Faith, they also ponder the consequences of a high vampire population on the city of Sunnydale, and try and figure out why Giles wasn't invited to the Watcher's Council getaway.
It's party time in Sunnydale!
Amanda and Andrea talk about how parties make them uncomfortable, and how they can totally empathize with Buffy in this episode. The Scoobies are being super passive aggressive, and Snyder's all tingly. The ladies also talk about how. with characters as 'real' and human as the one's on Buffy are, they're super frustrating sometimes.
We can hardly believe we're already on season three! Where has the time gone?!
Amanda and Andrea chat about Buffy and how she's such a positive influence on those around her, even when she isn't trying. They also discover that Amanda missed the end of the episode when she watched it, so we catch up on air. Andrea can't stop talking about the amazing one-shot in the ep.
The ladies also talk about the amped up opening credits, the apparent increase in budget for the show, 'cause the production value is WAY up.
They also get lost in a few tangents about TV, shows trolling their fans and when bad episodes happen to good TV.
