  1. I just don’t get it–why is the female empowerment angle so mind blowing? Why not make it the righteous empowered against the wicked? I get it that this is Buffy’s show, but it seems heavy handed to be so feministic, just as It would seem heavy handed to focus solely on male empowerment, or empowerment of any one race or age group.

  2. I haven’t watched Band Candy yet to come up with a specific drinking game moments but if the other episodes are any indication every time Cordia makes Robin giggle and sigh “Ah yes.” There should definitely be drinking.

  3. I think Alternate Universe Joseph would love to know that there is a virtual series out there dedicated to his all time favorite character. It’s one of the many spin-off’s of the Virtual Mutant’s Buffy Virtual Continuation.

  4. I don’t know that I can truly name a favorite, but if it helps, let’s say Breaking Bad is one of the better shows I’ve watched in recent years.
    Call me paranoid, but I sense I may be, as Willow colorfully said, pooping on the parade here. If I seem to be hating on BtVS, I can only give my assurance that I do like the show, I just don’t quite feel as fond as some others may. Consider me the Statler and Waldorf of The Buffy Rewatch.

  5. Hey Guys!

    Thanks for a great podcast! I will miss it so very much. I thought a fun way to look back on the show would be to take a look at some of the main characters first and last lines. I did have to limit it somewhere, so I drew the (random) line at 15 episodes. In my mind enough to make an impact on either the entire show or a specific season. I hope this brings up some good conversation on some of the best (and worst) characters of BtVS
