I just feel like Buffy and everyone should be a little more concerned. Yes Buffy is the slayer, but even she can be taken advantage of. I just think she should be more cautious about these things. Kind of like a Ted. The episode implies one thing and then backs out of it by saying well that's not what really happened, so let's forget the situation. Just bothers me is all.
I clearly read this episode very differently. I mean we are talking Fish rape here, and Buffy as a female is treated horribly during the episode. That's the difference for me, the other two can be pasted off as light, b-movie cheese, but this one is so much more crude and nasty with its gender politics. I don't think it works on any level.
Fish rape? I think I need you to refresh my memory.
If I were to keep merely one, I'd keep "Reptile Boy". That's where Angel sniffs the bracelet in the cemetery, isn't it? They all have good moments, though. Besides, Soviet steroids? Fun in my book.
