    I watched Reptile Boy last night.

    Talk about the poster child for pathetic special effects! :D

    Whoa, yeah, really bad special effects. And Xander made quite the ugly chick.

    I loved Willow this ep. She's great when she's bossy, and then realizes she's being bossy.

    Next up, S2E6 Halloween.

    Watching s1e7,Lie to Me.

    Another line recycled in OMWF: "once more, with tension."

    I think you meant S2.:)
    I'm terrible at remembering/recognizing lines.

    I'd forgotten that Angel sired Dru.


    Now on to S2E8 The Dark Age

    Ha ha, yes, thanks.

    I've watched OMWF am obscene number of times and listened to the soundtrack twice that. I could probably recite it.

    Me too. But I have an excuse-- I had a Media Studies professor in college who was obsessed with Buffy, and I talked her into letting me do an independent study course specifically about OMWF and how it fits into (and a lot of times, breaks from) the established genre of the movie musical. I wrote something like a 50-page paper on it. Got an A+. :D

    BFE, So....
    Yeah, that whole episode just seems too dark for me, ironically. I rarely watch Ted for that reason. John Ritter did very well in that episode.

    Wow, did I grossly mis-remember the length of this paper. It was only 12 pages. :D

    Anyway, here's a link for anybody who wants to take a look:

    https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B3TfW99JUUgyVGU4LXA1c1JRNG8

    Warning: it is pretty dry and very academic. I was about four years into an advanced English and Literary Studies degree, and I wrote accordingly. If you've ever read any of the literary theory books on Buffy, this is very much in the same vein. I took a lot of shortcuts with making connections between things and elaborating on points because I was good friends with the professor I wrote it for and I knew she had an extensive working knowledge of Buffy and some of the other literary theory I referred to.

    Interesting. I'm a little surprised that you didn't touch on "Going Through the Motions," in which a young female character is the hero(ine) coming to the rescue, and the very Disney looking buff gentleman is the "damsel in distress," and instead of a romantic reward, he is dismissed mid-lyric with a simple "whatever."

    If I would have thought of that, I definitely would have! That would have fit perfectly.
