Buffy update

We figured out recently that we've seen more than a hundred episodes of Buffy now. Like Sarah said last night, it's one of the most well-thought-out shows we've ever seen. It really has it all: continuity, self-reference, complex relationships, hilarity, even allegory. And to top it off, the lead character is a strong woman destroying the undead.

But last night went way over the top for us. We finally saw "Once More, With Feeling". There's a fan site for this one episode.

The episode is a musical.

What's even more amazing is that it actually advances the plot.

It wouldn't make much sense to watch it without seeing the first hundred episodes. The references to earlier action come too fast and furious. It's in Season 6, so get cracking.

Isn't it the bestest?!! My sis-in-law got me hooked in season 2.

BTW, Hi, how've you been?

Hi Amber! Oh, it is the bestest. We have been looking for money to buy Angel, but until recently they were quite expensive.

I am doing well! I'm married and I have one son, and I'm back in school getting a Master's in Computer Science. Other than that everything is different, everything is the same and I'm still Dan.

Glad to hear from you, and I'll email you soon (in case you don't see this).
