I love this episode!

  • Are pumpkin patches a big thing in America? I've not heard of going to get a pumpkin before, it's just kinda few pumpkins in the store.
  • Angel and Cordelia talking together and even laughing, wish they had continued that a bit, so that weren't as distant in Angel season 1.
  • Buffy saying it would be wrong is so like how Faith says it in Buffys body later on
  • A care bear with fangs, aww Angel gets the best descriptions!
  • Ethan!!
  • Spike watching Buffy fight and Drusilla telling something is coming
  • Sexy Willow!
  • Love Oz and Cordelia talking, it's like Cordelia knows everyone and will talk to anyone if it suits her
  • Willow dies!
  • And Buffy is all there either!
  • However Cordelia is still Cordelia
  • Giles going to the store and seeing Ethan, but making Willow leave, before he says anything.
  • Love the look that Cordelia and Angel share when Buffy says that Angel is a vampire
  • "No hug" oh they so have a history that I really wish we knew more of.
  • Hi honey, I'm home. Love the interactions between Buffy and Spike.
  • Xander telling Cordelia not to even try with Angel, it's not going to happen
  • Oz spotting Willow again.
  • Angel opening up about his past, and how he hated the girls then and wanted something different, well he got different with Darla and got dead!
  • Ethan is gone, for now!
Are pumpkin patches a big thing in America? Yes. Ain't you never seen the Peanuts? Great Pumpkin? Oh my.

On a roll today, Lie to Me:

  • Creepy park at night, more bad parenting there
  • Drusilla is out and about, and talking with Angel, but she's right he can't hurt her, he feels guilty about her
  • Cordelia trying to understand history
  • Buffy bringing Ford to the Bronze and him meeting Angel.
  • Cats fighting, aka a lame excuse for vamp slayage
  • Ford, wanting to die young and look pretty!
  • Willow inviting Angel in, and asking if he needs homework help!
  • Angel talking about honing his brooding skills and being jealous
  • Willow being all paniciky about keeping her reseach on Ford a secret
  • Xander and Angel getting along and going with Angel to the club, despite the Deadboy nickname
  • the lonely ones! Really!
  • Buffy realising that Ford has been lying to her.
  • Angel admitting that he went to her friends to find out about Ford
  • Angel telling Buffy about her he tortured and killed Drusilla
  • Sorry Ford, I still don't have any sympathy for you
  • Why didn't Drusilla fight back, yes she was weak but not weak enough to just stand there surely!
  • Ford is dead, although that vamp doesn't look much like him, but love the talk between Giles and Buffy then

I seem to recall that I enjoyed "Lie to Me". Perhaps I shouldn't rewatch it.

The Dark Age

  • Did the dead guy play a vampire sometime, he reminds me of a vampire
  • Yeah I'm with Giles, it's noise!
  • Instead of Slayer dreams we get Giles dreams
  • Love how Jenny teases him and flirts with him, is that their first kiss? Only kiss?
  • Cordelia seems to be dumb down here, what's the hint, Saturdays class.
  • Angel's here for the fight, however Giles is not.
  • Buffy saying that Giles is being AntiGiles!
  • Ethan is back, and lurking in the library
  • Love that Ethan gets past Xander, but is stopped by a quick kick from Cordelia.
  • Giles still not letting Buffy in, not sure what his plan was?
  • Doesn't mean that they won't figure it out for themselves
  • 3 down 2 to go, plus them using magic to get high - sounds a lot like Willow in season 6
  • Ethan trading places with Buffy, giving her a tattoo and removing his.
  • Love the scene of Willow drinking tea and then yelling at Xander and Cordelia, and the aha moment she has.
  • Giles realising that Buffy is in danger
  • Angel rushing in and fighting the demon making it jump into him, love the internal fight he has.
  • Poor Giles, Jenny needs time and they were just getting somewhere.

  • Angel beating up Willie until Kendra arrives and locks him in a cage.
  • Slayer vs Slayer version1!

  • Why is Angel so weak here, yeah he got beat by Kendra but he wasn't physically hurt, and ok sun approaching but surely he should have been able to escape.
  • Oww, Oz is shot
  • Xander and Cordelia with the bugs and the kissing.
  • Angel teasing Spike about how Drusilla likes it.
  • Nobody messes with my boyfriend
  • Angel and Drusilla are all tied up for the ritual

  • Kiss me
  • Miniature golf time, but cheats and gets threatened for it, harsh
  • And now Ted lies about it.
  • Buffy spying on Ted, and finding out that Ted plans to marry Joyce
  • The way Ted keeps calling Buffy little lady is creepy
  • Buffy coming in to see Ted in her room
  • Bye, bye Ted, poor Buffy
  • Cordelia has no tact
  • Love the way Willow grabs for the cookie!
  • Ted is back

Completely forgot about posting Surprise/Innocence


  • Buffy dreaming of Drusilla, Angel had his ring on in the dream, when did he start wearing it?
  • Willow and Oz, Willow asking Oz to Buffy's party
  • Go to class Xander, gone
  • Buffy going to the Bronze and getting an arm!

  • Dru has all the boxes, the Judge has been assembled
  • Angel and Buffy have been spotted.

  • Angel got dressed quickly! naked to dressed to get the soul!
  • Dru knows something has changed
  • Buffy is keeping quiet about sleeping with Angel
  • Angel is back but I don't get why he can't be burnt, yes Angel says that he never hated his victims but he still felt something for them to do all that to Drusilla.
  • Angelus has got Willow
  • Xander has a plan, Oz has a van!
  • Buffy used to have lots of Slayer dreams, I don't remember many past season 3

  • Poor Giles, he just got back with Jenny now this happens
  • I know where I'd line up
  • Buffy: That was then, this is now. Boom
  • Liking the wet Angelus look
  • Love the car ride talk between Buffy and Giles.


So it's been years since I've done a full Buffy rewatch, but I'm going to do one this year. There's episodes I haven't seen in probably over 5 years, maybe even longer!

However I have the time now to at least start the watch, so after work tonight I'll get the first dvd put in and get started. I might need a little encouragement to keep watching the bad eps!
season 1 the witch and the pack and teacher pet & I robot you jane & out of sight out of mind willow is funny in this episode making fun of Cordy.

Teacher's Pet

  • Does Xander really want the rockstar life with Buffy being the damsel

It's S1, Xander is drawn to gender norms just as Buffy is. He pretends he's not a virgin because boys shouldn't be virgins, he wishes he could play an instrument because a guy with a guitar gets love and respect, and he wishes he could save Buffy because macho men are what girls are into... Xander's journey is to accept who he is and his role in the gang. I don't think Xander really want the rockstar life or a damsel Buffy, nothing in the show indicates he wants that, it's just a dream which Xander has no control over.

  • Oh Cain is so creepy, one of the worst human villains in the show
  • Got to add a little Angelus to the mix too
  • Wolf in The Bronze, how did he pass the security!
  • Vampire v werewolf, and the girl is dead anyway
  • Oz just so casual when asking about his cousin
  • Xander forgetting he said he didn't remember the hyena possession

  • Oz is going through changes, with chains
  • Run Willow Run
  • I shot Oz
  • Did Oz always have earings?

  • From whence it came, that is a Giles kinda sentence.
  • Practice running like a man!
  • Willow doing the questioning, and Earshot is very similar to this.

  • Xander in speedos
  • They're monsters on steroids.
  • Xander giving up on the subtle approach, but it's in the steam
  • His boys, and he's going to feed the nurse to them.

  • The ocean. Home.

  • Why would Angelus be running towards them, does he feel that they are trying to curse him?
  • Willow saying that she might be able to do the spell.

  • I'm on Xander's side here too, while he may not have known that she held back last time she fought him knowing about the soul spell, this wasn't a time she could not give everything to the fight.
  • Hello lover
  • Then why would they make you see me?
  • She should have left the minions and focused straight on Angelus.
  • Sword fight!
  • He's going to kill her, no Spike he's not!
  • No weapons, no friends, no hope, take all that away and what's left? Me.
