Episode 7 Angel

Okay so Angel was only smarmy through half of this episode. He's definitely starting to become a more interesting character. And I loved the girly scream from Buffy when she discovered he's a vampire. Now I'm always pleased to see the master, he's just deliciously evil! It's also the first time we see the lesson about how useless and dumb guns are. Must admit, they also seem kind of redundant when the person holding them is a vampire. Still it's nice to find out just what Angel's problem is.

Best line of the episode, goes to Darla

"So many body parts, so few bullets"

There's a lesson in there somewhere

Episode 6 The pack

I didn't realise how long it had been since I last posted. Lots of personal stuff going on. So I enjoyed some lighthearted entertainment yesterday when I watched this episode again. Obviously I've still got a fondness for bad boys as Xander seemed really yummy in this episode (apart from when he was being cruel to Willow of course). And I know I've said it before but I like Principal Flutie, I'm gonna miss him. I know the episode is a metaphor for how teenage boys become predatory strangers when puberty hits but Xander was more than horrible!

I remember playing dodgeball at school and hated every minute of it. As the coach said, brutal game.

Best line of the episode goes to Xander

"Shoot me, stuff me, mount me."

Episode 5 Never kill a boy on the first date

Wow I hadn't realised how long its been since I was here. With the dramas of Christmas and New Year over its time to get back to normal.

After watching this episode, its good to know that a woman of Buffy's power and confidence when fighting the forces of evil, can still be just plain dumb when it comes to the opposite sex. I wish I'd seen this episode when I was 16 and clueless (not that I know much more now, when it comes to men). Poor Xander though, he really hasn't got a hope. Nice to see Cordelia get hers as well. Angel is starting to be less smarmy and actually looks a little unsure of himself for the first time. Ang I do so love the master!!!

Best line of the episode:

Buffy to Giles: "Okay, at this point, you're abusing sarcasm"

Episode 4 Teacher's Pet

I'm not so fussed on this episode I must say. Of course even if I'm not keen on an episode I still manage to find something in it that I like. I think what bothers me about this episode is that it makes me cringe. It's all that teenage boy stuff that just creeps me out. And yes Angel is still smarmy. I'll admit he's loosening up a bit but still icky to me. I find it interesting that when Xander's daydreaming at the start of the episode, he stabs a vampire with a stake but he doesn't dust. I'm wondering if that's because it's so expensive to dust them or is it a sign of the typical teenage boys' lack of follow through. I love Principal Flutie though, the poor man tries so hard!

Best line in the episode?

Xander: "Nothing, it just kind of bugs me" Love it love it love it!
