Recorded live at La Fontana Caffe in Burnaby, BC, home of NerdHQ! Amanda and Andrea welcome back John, as they discuss the episode that changes it all for season 2, Innocence.
It seems as though Amanda and Andrea have switched places, with Andrea having a lot more energy than normal, while Amanda wants to really drill down and focus. There's lots of music talk from Amanda, Andrea won't shut up about Joss' commentary on the DVD, and keep count for John and his gypsy talk...
It's a surprise-filled birthday for Buffy and the gang! Jenny's a gypsy! Oz, vampires are real! Spike's in a wheelchair! Drusilla's building a giant demon! SO MANY SURPRISES!
Amanda and Andrea talk a lot about relationships in this episode. There's a lot happening in this first half of the second two-parter of season 2 with the couples, ALL OF THEM! Oz/Willow, Spike/Dru, Cordy/Xander, Giles/Jenny and especially Buffy/Angel. It's a lot of set up, mostly so Joss can kick us in the heart in the next ep.
Ugh, well at least it's over with now, one of the worst eps of Buffy, Bad Eggs, is done and dusted. As per usual with bad eps, this podcast's a little longer than usual.
Amanda starts out trying to defend the episode, but it doesn't take long for Andrea to bring her over to her way of thinking - that this episode is terrible, and (very unusual for Buffy stand-alones) has no point or moral. Or if there is, it's very poorly executed.
We also feature a fan-edit of our theme song by fan and friend Peter, and talk generally about how much we love our fans, and how knowledgeable they are about so many things!
It's Ted time on Tiny Fences. We start off the episode a little dark, but transition to lighter fare with a musical number!
The ladies talk about parenting, domestic violence, loneliness, and Buffy's questionable journaling style. They also get into a little chat about the rules for superpowered people, and Andrea wants everyone to read Marvel's Civil War event. Amanda also waxes poetic about Christophe Beck and his fantastic score.
Time to wrap up Career Week with a BANG!
The girls discuss, yet again, what makes Buffy unique as a Slayer, especially her ability to outsource things to the Scoobies.
Amanda's enamoured with Coriander and Andrea talks about some animal cracker love, and how Alyson Hannigan's TV relationships give her potentially unrealistic #relationshipgoals.
