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.
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.
It's time to find out more about those commandos who've been roaming UC Sunnydale! (and Spike's back too!)
The time has finally come to say goodbye to Oz. Amanda & Andrea delve into 4x06, Wild at Heart.
The ladies also have to extend "Five Minutes with Angel" to seven minutes for Sense and Sensitivity.
Ugh. It's time. 'Beer Bad', why are you so awful? Tune in as we try and decipher that very question.
It's Halloween at UC Sunnydale! What does that mean for the Scoobies? Why, haunted frats, costumes and comedy, of course!
We welcome back podcast super-fan Peter Dunn as we also welcome back fan-favourite Spike to Buffy in the "Harsh Light of Day"!
This extra-long podcast is spent talking about the three relationships of the episode, Spike & Harmony, Anya & Xander, and Buffy & Parker, with a little bit of Gem of Amara on the side.
Time to talk about Buffy and her "Living Conditions"!
Amanda and Andrea chat about their roommates past, the amazing amount of comedy in this episode, and how much fun SMG must've had playing a slightly soulless version of the Slayer.
Andrea commiserates with 401 Buffy and tells about 'the day' she had and Amanda has to watch the end of the episode ON AIR, 'cause she missed it.....oh Amanda.
New season! New school! New people! Updated theme song! There's a LOT going on in this episode.
Amanda and Andrea talk about their own university experiences, and how they relate to Buffy's feeling overwhelmed by it all. They also talk travels across Canada and America a la Xander.
Make sure you stay tuned to the end for a new segment following our favourite brooding detective in L.A.
It's the end of an era....and a school! We survived high school, but we will survive Graduation Pt 2?!
Amanda and Andrea welcome back Alicen to talk the end of the high school years, sing some songs, read some elegies and some stories.
Bring on season four!
It's already season finale time! Amanda and Andrea welcome Alicen for 'Graduation Day Pt. 1'
Get ready for more quotes than Andrea's ever asked for before, some long tangents courtesy of Alicen, and some overall finale time conversational goodness!
Hellhounds! Break-ups! Adorable umbrella awards! It must be time for the Sunnydale High Prom!
Amanda and Andrea welcome guest Lauren as they talk (and laugh) about 'The Prom'. For a supposed 'monster-of-the-week' ep, we spend a whole lot of time NOT talking about the MOW.
"What's in the box!" Amanda and Andrea welcome back Julia to discuss "Choices".
It's an episode where it seems like a lot happens, but actually not that much happens. However, there are a lot of decisions to be made, for almost all our characters, whether they like and/or want to make those choices.
It's Earshot time! Buffy gets a fancy new power that isn't as great as it initially seems.
Amanda and Andrea discuss the usefulness of being able to read minds, and how high school's kind of awful.
Amanda and Andrea FINALLY welcome the one and only Katherine (that's right, @KatherineIsOdd) to the podcast, to talk "Enemies".
There are more than a few tangents, but when the girls get down to the episode they have lots to say; especially how much they love Faith, enjoy Giles' indignant comments about demons, and the Mayor's fatherly relationship with Faith. (did we mention that we love Faith?)
We're seeing double! and the return of Craig (aka Andrea's best friend Craig) to the podcast!
It's a Willow-centric episode, and I think anyone who's listened to the podcast knows how Amanda feels about this. For the first time in a while Andrea has some STRONG feelings about fashion. (that aren't overall related!)
It's time to take some responsibility for actions...unless your name is Faith, 'cause then it's time to repress and act out!
Amanda and Andrea have a great discussion about this excellent episode, full of strong character development and wonderful performances especially from SMG and Eliza Dushku (she's the real stand-out in the episode)
There's also an odd running Marvel theme...not sure where that came from ;)
"Is he evil?" There's a new Watcher in town and the Scoobies are NOT having any of it, Giles included.
Faith and Buffy band together to rebel against their new Watcher, with Faith's 'bad girl' persona bringing out Buffy's wilder side in the process.
Were you thinking to yourself, "Whatever happened to that Q&A Tiny Fences was going to do?" Well the answer is, "IT'S RIGHT HERE!"
It's a bit rambly, we talk a lot about Angel, and "Welcome to Tiny Fences" (a podcast about our podcast ;) )
"Did I mention I'm having a really strange night?" Oh Xander, a strange night for you, makes a super-fun episode for us!
Amanda and Andrea welcome back Vanessa from Not Another X-Files Podcast Podcast to chat about this Xander-centric ep. We talk about the masculinity, music, and the magic of (literally)'flipping the script' in The Zeppo.
Amanda has several 'games' for the girls to play, and Andrea apologizes profusely for sounding like she's dying throughout the episode.
It's Buffy's birthday again! Which obviously means bad news...Amanda and Andrea welcome a new guest to celebrate the big day: Matthew!
The gang chats about the new information we've learned about the Watcher's Council, how Buffy copes with losing her powers, and Giles' betrayal.
Witches, mobs, and demons! OH MY!
It's "Gingerbread" time, this week the girls talk about mob mentalities, good and bad parental units, and the excellent quotables in this ep courtesy of Jane Espenson!
"It's a WB Holiday Event!" according to the promo.
The girls discuss Buffy's only 'Christmas' episode, which ends surprisingly happy for a Joss written/directed episode.
The big question continues to be why is Angel back? Andrea questions Amanda as to whether we know the truth or if the First was lying. The ladies also talk about some strong acting from David Boreanaz, who's been floating around the periphery for a while. (well, strong except for the less than great accent, and questionable hair/facial hair...)
There's also some great discussion about how people are too hard on themselves, and are often better, stronger, than they give themselves credit for.
With amends being made in the Willow/Oz relationship as well, A&A get into a conversation about Oz's feminist side and whether Willow's really ready to do the 'thing'.
And lastly, any episode claiming a heat wave and then snow is obviously going to need some 'splaining' from these Canadians, who question whether California is actually familiar with how snow works.
This week we’re following Cordelia down the rabbit hole into a land of greys, fear, and vampires running wild and free. It’s Wishverse! We welcome Andrea’s best friend Craig onto the podcast to talk about a world where Buffy never comes to Sunnydale. Amanda brings back conversation about fashion and the contrast in colours shown throughout the episode. Craig and the girls love Wishverse Willow and all pity her “poor puppy.” We also go in depth with Oz and his stoic emotional maturity and examine the question of whether friends who have crossed the “romantic line” can ever return to where they were. Andrea brings us into the conversation of Wishverse Buffy and how different our hero’s life would have been without her Scoobies. Click play and join our discussion on one of Joss's top ten favourite episodes!
Big things are happening in Sunnydale! The SAT results are in! Just kidding, we all know the big news is that everyone's favourite lovelorn vampire is back in town!
Amanda and Andrea talk about how Spike is able to come into town have an affect on almost all the relationships we care about - he's THAT powerful a destructive force. They talk about the various natures of love and lust that exist in Sunnydale, and how each character has a different reaction in dealing with their emotions.
The girls do also talk about the B plot of Buffy potentially being able to get a higher education, and how proud both Giles and Joyce of her academic achievement.
At the end of the episode the girls lay out (at LAST) the details for the upcoming Q&A episode.
