    I think singing wise Amber was the best . And not just singing but the dancing she did in the song as well .
    There was a couple that wasn't as good thought I have to say .

    Amber's voice blew me away. And I liked the mini-duet she did with Tony...it was smart to put the two best singers together. Or should I say, the only members of the cast who could actually sing.

    Also, Michelle, Emma, and Amber were pretty good, seeing as they're not professional dancers.

    I think myself that Xander did summon the demon . After all he had to sense what Xander did because he wouldn't have left just because Xander said so . Which begs the question what did he do to bring Sweet there o_O

    I'm always really hesitant when it comes to musicals and I don't like many of them (except of course The Rocky Horror Picture Show which is a masterpiece) so keep that in mind while you read the rest of my post.

    I was binging on Buffy and I had no idea there even was a musical episode when I started OMWF. I loved it soooo much I paused it in the middle and texted "I can't believe they're doing this, it's awesome, I love it" to the person who got me hooked on BtVS.
    I love the humour, I love that SMG & Nick did their best (and they're really better than me so who am I to judge), I love the songs (I now know them by heart) and I love that they put so much work into it (choreographies, perfectly timed firetrucks, etc).

    However, I agree that the whole Xander-summoned-Sweet thing isn't great/logical but I honestly don't care. The rest is so damn good than I didn't even think about it.

    How often have you seen it? It's because I always felt the episode was very over rated but I enjoyed so much more on my latest watch. Funnier than I remember, progresses the story and a lot of the singing is good as well. Top tip, if you haven't tried yet switch from crappy TV speakers and use a decent pair of headphones, really brings the music to life.

    The only down point of the episode is that Xander summoned Sweet which makes no sense and is the worst bit of writing in the Buffyverse.

    I'm not a musical fan. OMWF is one of the few exceptions, and one of my favorites of that particular genre. :)


     
    bafshd: those are definitely the best songs :)

    I have probably watched it a hand full of times. I don't like Season 6 so much so it doesn't get re-watched as often. I guess I should say that I enjoy the side characters' songs/musical stuff alot more than the main characters. I tend to like my musicals on a stage and not on TV so that could also be a big factor.

    I did musical theatre all through high school and college. I'm a huge musical theatre buff and I know alot of musicals by HEART so this episode really should be written specifically for me and yet, it doesnt work for me. Maybe because it doesnt feel like Buffy to me. And I don't go to Buffy for the same reasons I go and pop in my Wicked CD. I know I'm in the majority - just curious if I was one girl in all the world.

    Think you mean minority - and yes, my most annoying trait is the obsessive compulsion to correct people, sorry :) - but I get it. I mean, I LOVE OMWF, so, so much, but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. The only thing I find mindboggling is when someone reasons their dislike as being because certain cast members can't sing...that confuses me. But the rest I totally understand, even if I don't agree :)

    Yes I meant minority. I also don't have a Wicked CD, I was speaking figuratively. I am not so old that I still listen to CDs....

    Pretty sure you are younger than me lol. Maybe its a states thing. We don't really use CDs we listen to music off iTunes or some other app on our phones. I dont even have music on my computer anymore it is all in some hypothetical cloud they tell me about.

    Oh, no, it's not a States thing, it's a Puppet thing, lol. I've never been much of a 'trend follower', I don't have any Spotify or iTunes or anything like that, I don't have Netflix, I still have an MP3 player that's, like, 10 years old...I'm just a bit old fashioned, I guess :)
