    I love musicals and everything about OMWF. I really do feel bad for those who can't appreciate this episode's greatness. My emotional attachment to it is off the charts.

    Now Les Miserable now's that's a Musical ....didn't like OMWF at first but thats because I dislike most things S6 but then I am a Buffy fan and a SMG fan . I then realised how much work the actors put into it Especially Sarah , who is not a good singer but refused to let someone else sing then be mime over. Lovely voice Tara and Anya, thought both Spike and Giles were weak especially Spike ( not sure how he carries a band ) , Dawn danced a little but insisted she could not sing , Willow being JW favourite got away with doing nothing, and I thought Xander did a good job also liked the song Anya sang on her wedding day that didn't happen....but that was the problem with six it left you Les Miserable every episode

    I've never been a big fan of OMWF. But I also don't care for musicals very much. It had some special moments but it has never made my top 15 or so.

    I don't care for OMWF and think it's one of those totally overrated Buffy episodes (like The Body or The Gift). Once you get past the singing and what not, the story in OMWF is a joke.

    I find The Body to be a masterpiece so I'm curious, which episodes are your favorites ?

    So do you not like Season 5 much? I can't remember your opinion of it.

    Boring, the beginning of constant depression, nonsensical and the Season that logic forgot. Pretty much sums up S5. It's the beginning of the Dawnverse and I HATE the Dawnverse. I don't own any BtVS Season post S4. Canonverse only for me.

    They ignored character logic for artificial drama. Don't even get me started how bad the "stellar" episode is.

    Agreed. I think OMWF could've been done differently without the whole "Xander summoned a demon despite learning his lesson last time he messed with magic". Season 6 was too dark, it lost the humour of the earlier seasons despite the fact that the earlier seasons were dark and the humour helped balanced it out. OMWF could've been done as an episode where the scoobies go to a karaoke bar for Xander and Anya's joint stag/hen party but the place is enchanted or something which makes the karaoke singers sing their true feelings so we get Tara's "Under your spell" (which should make Willow feel uncomfortable because of the memory charm she did on Tara) plus we get Buffy's confession about being in heaven. Alternatively, if it was a demon bar, all the songs could be supernaturally themed hence Spike's "Rest in Peace" which wouldn't be about his feelings for Buffy but just a general song of unrequited love. The third option is that the Scoobies just go to a general karaoke bar and sing normal songs (we could get a cameo from Lorne if maybe Angel sent him as a present to give Xander a good stag party, maybe it could be a crossover with Angel and make use of Caritas). Spike belting out "White Wedding" would continue the Spike/Billy Idol joke.

    I'm not a fan of it. I think I've watched it maybe 5 or 6 times and I somehow know the lyrics to the songs. I can't watch the episode anymore because I can't watch it without knowing what's happening next. Kind of like Something Blue. I love this episode and consider it as one of my favourites but I will need a looooong break from it because I know the lines.
    I think that majority of the songs were pretty lame and I agree that the ending where Sweet was summoned by Xander made no sense. Much the same as the The Doctor in As You Were. Shouldn't have to sit there at the end of the episode and figure out how the hell they got to it.

    I feel confident that if Lorne was a part of OMwF I would've 90% more on board.

    Not a huge fan of this episode. I hated it when it first aired, but after watching it a few times now I like it. Not love it though, just like.

    I think it's a masterpiece of television and I don't care of the critics on Sarah's performance, she was great !

    I didn't even realize that there were people out there who could hate that episode. That's why I love Buffy-Boards : you expand your horizons and meet new kinds of people :)
