    Nice reference from joyce re: band candy.

    It annoys me how cavalier people are about inviting vampires in. Holding a crossbow on him is great for right now, but you've just given him an all access pass.

    Well, they did figure out how to revoke the invitation, so maybe not so bad.

    Yeah, but why not just step outside and talk there? It's southern California, it's not like it's cold.

    S3E5 Homecoming
    I love this ep. Starts out angsty, but I love it after the limo ride. Love pissed off Cordy.

    S3E6 Band Candy
    I love this ep, too. Giles and Joyce were just too funny.

    "Faith, a word of advice, you're an idiot"
    Not sure that's advice, but I agree with the sentiment.

    I love Spike. His scenes with Joyce are always great. I hate feeling sorry for Cordy.

    Can't decide if I'm going to rewatch Angel when I get to Buffy Season 4 or not. Mainly because I'm lazy and not sure I want to keep swapping out the DVDs.:eek: Though I do have a second TV and DVD player in my bedroom. Might have to watch Angel in there.

    Just make sure you watch Buffy then Angel on a single night, just like you would have on the WB in 1999!

    I've watched a bunch, and season 3 is getting better.

    S03E06 Band Candy - B
    S03E07 Revelations - B
    S03E08 Lovers Walk - A
    S03E09 The Wish - A
    S03E10 Amends - B
    S03E11 Gingerbread - B
    S03E12 Helpless - A

    Band Candy had some funny moments and started to establish the Mayor as a real big bad.

    Revelations had some good tension, a character twist, the Angel reveal, more Xandar being a jackass, and a good final battle.

    Spike! He elevates every episode and his speech in the Magic Shop was great. Finally Xander and Willow are found out.

    Anya arrives and introduces us to a much darker Sunnydale. Vamp Willow, pet Angel, Buffy without a soul, and Giles hoping anything is better than this. I like how this episode highlights that Buffy trying desperately to live a normal life with friends and loved ones is what is her real strength.

    Amends I wanted to like a lot more than I did. I almost gave it a C, but it was a pretty good scene between David and Sarah at the end. Oh, and when Angel went to see Giles was also good. But I still think any explanation they attempted for why Angel was back was weak other than they wrote themselves into a corner and had to bring him back for a spin-off show.

    Gingerbread was solid.

    Helpless was great. Buffy's vulnerability and Giles betrayal, really such good stuff this episode. Oh, except Cordy ruined the scene with Buffy and Giles. Normally her humor is a nice relief, but this time, it was too out of place in such a serious moment.

    Also, it's been fun seeing how many times Harmony and Jonathon pop up over the first three seasons.

    And I keep forgetting to mention Principal Snyder! I was so excited when he was introduced. He cracks me up.

    S03E13 The Zeppo - A
    S03E14 Bad Girls - B
    S03E15 Consequences - A
    S03E16 Doppelgangland - A

    Usually I reserve my A ratings for episodes that pack a real emotional punch and those are usually part of bigger arcs, and as much as I've been hating on Xander, this episode is just too hilarious. From the pacing to the music to the radical shifts in tone between Xander's story and the other story (especially when we shift from Xander to Buffy and Angel's emotional scene), it really is some great film making. Also, fun to see Michael Cudlitz (now starring in Southland).

    Bad Girls had some good moments, but I felt my attention wandering. Loved we finally got the Wesley introduction. I don't care for the Faith and Buffy as BFFs story.

    Consequences packed some of that good emotional punch. I forgot how far Faith took things with Xander. Good work all around.

    Doppelgangland is similar to The Zeppo in that the hilarity and radical shifts in tone are so great that for what is basically a standalone it really is a memorable one in the canon.

    As I watched I wondered how much of this violence in a school they could get away with now. Buffy and Angel reenact a shooting in a school. Xander diffuses a bomb in a school. We know that "Earshot" had to be postponed due to school violence around its air date.

    I don't watch any other supernatural teen shows or movies to know how much violence they have in schools. I don't think you could do that now, but I wonder if they are and I'm just not watching.

    It's amusing watching Cordelia and Wesley fawn at each other knowing how those characters develop.

    Buffy's double take in Band Candy is one of the funniest moments in the series.

    Consequences - one of my favorites.

    Willow: "I don't need to say 'oh', I got there already."

    Then her crying in the restroom. Breaks my heart every time. :( Cemented my undying devotion to Alyson Hannigan.
