    Yea, I was listening to the BB podcast last week, and so I decided to watch a few episodes that they were discussing. And then I decided to watch 2 other episodes. It's nice to just pop in random eps every now and then.
     
    AnthonyCordova: Totally. Just watching a random ep offers a different perspective too

    I haven't done a rewatch in years, I keep starting it then get to an ep I don't like and keep putting it off, but I want to do a full Buffy and Angel rewatch all the way through, with the crossovers. It's just going to be a pain switching out the dvds at the right eps.
     
    The Ferg: BS4/AS1 are really the only time there's crossovers that matter.

    I skip around a lot. Usually I choose the episodes that make laugh. Though recently, I did watch S6 all the way through...almost. Some of the the discs skipped/froze at times.

    Never play Frisbee with your dvds. No matter how bored you are. :p

    You're so cute! (So that's where the cutest member thing comes from?!) :D

    I usually rewatch episodes here and there, especially if we're podcast prepping.

    I haven't done a full rewatch for about 18 months, so I'm pretty sure one is due :)
     
    Fuffy Baith: Yep! :)

    Please do. I think we got Netflix only 15 years after it started in the US, so hopefully we'll get Hulu a little faster ;):D

    I've done two full re-watches of both BtVS and Angel over the last 6 months. I usually watch a couple of episodes of S6 or 7 (or A5) every night (unfortunately, that seems to have wiped all knowledge of the other seasons from memory :( so I suspect I'll have to do a third re-watch. Alternatively, it's early on-set dementia :eek:but I remain optimistic:)). I also, sad to say, have a large amount of clips stored on a hard drive for ease of reference (admittedly, they're mostly Spike but it's DEFINITELY reference. It's also cheaper than having to replace a series because a disc skips when you've paused it too often - I'm on my 3rd copy of 7). I watch alone (it's not surprising is it?:() but I've encouraged a colleague/friend to watch the series. It wasn't purely altruistic - she's great at identifying Shakespearean / Pre-Raphaelite references. If a job's worth doing, it's worth doing well - so why not have someone who does it better do it for you?;)

    I get a Buffy re watch urge about once a year. I re watch every episode from start to finish. I am currently on season 4. :D I will then get on to the comics. I don't have all the comics. I'm actually way behind. I only have season 8! Will have to get back on amazon or ebay. lol :D

    I've recently watched the first episodes from s7. I skipped Same Time Same Place. In Helpless, I really enjoyed the conversation between Xander and Willow, but when I realised they were at the graveyard, I skipped forward.
     
    Puppet: That is a painful scene to watch :(

    I usually start at season one, intent on watching in order, around episode 3-4 I fall off the wagon and start skipping around... I'm hopeless... So, chronic random re-watcher! Life is too short to see Dead Things again!

    Great question. I tend to do it differently every time, and I usually get through all of the Buffyverse before moving onto Whedon's other stuff, but this time I'm trying to do an epic pseudo-chronological order so it feels like Buffy/Angel are the throughline between everything. In case you're curious...
    1. Buffy Season 0 (Tales, pre-S1 comics)
    2. BS1 (including High-School Years)
    3. BS2 (including Ring of Fire)
    4. BS3 (including Haunted and Bad Blood)
    5. AS1
    6. BS4 (including the Past Lives Buffy/Angel crossover)
    7. AS2 (including Long Night's Journey)
    8. BS5 (plus quite a few comic tie-ins, including The Death of Buffy)
    9. Whedon Comics (Fray, Astonishing X-Men, Sugarshock!)
    10. AS3
    11. BS6 (including Note from the Underground)
    12. Firefly (gonna try the original broadcast order this time)
    13. AS4
    14. BS7
    15. Serenity, Serenity comics, and Dr. Horrible
    16. AS5 (including Spike: Asylum and Shadow Puppets)
    17. Angel: After The Fall (including every IDW Angel/Spike comic [this one's gonna take forever])
    18. BS8
    19. BS9
    20. A&FS9
    21. Dollhouse S1
    22. BS10
    23. A&FS10 (still haven't gotten past the halfway point on this one.. not looking forward to it)
    24. Dollhouse S2
    25. Buffy/Angel S11
    26. Agents of SHIELD S1 (I don't consider anything besides S1 to be a Whedon show)
    27. Whedon Movies & TV episoes (Avengers, Much Ado, Cabin, Glee, The Office, Roseanna, Toy Story, etc, etc)

    Yea, I can get a little ridiculous about this stuff... Luckily I don't have a time limit.

    I use the watchers guide and go through Buffy and Angel in that order. Takes me ages though. I was starting my rewatch when I first joined here and only finished it earlier this year I think.
