    S01E08 The Dark Age - B
    S01E09 What's My Line, Part 1 - B

    More Ethan! Great episode to flesh out the Giles character and see that again, people are not one dimensional and all good or all bad. Clever Willow saves the day, this plus Halloween and she's really starting to shine. Poor Giles and Ms. Calendar. :(

    Kendra! Willie! Great set-up episode with lots of peril and danger and a great cliffhanger.

    (Yes, I did watch two episodes over lunch while I'm working from home today. :p)

    I watched a lot last night. I'll probably get season 2 finished this weekend.

    S02E10 What's My Line? Part 2 - A
    S02E11 Ted - C
    S02E12 Bad Eggs - C
    S02E13 Surprise - B
    S02E14 Innocence - A

    Two slayers, no waiting! Great final showdown with the assassins and Spike, and good moment at the end with Kendra telling Buffy it's not a job. Oh, and lots of shirtless Angel =yum.

    Ted got a little too serious and real world for me. Bad Eggs was a better first half than second. The cowboy vamps deserved their own episode.

    Surprise was some good set-up but overly angsty.

    Innocence is top class from start to finish. Evil Angel is a much more dynamic and interesting character than one-note broody good Angel. The scene when Willow sees Xander kissing Cordy is heartbreaking. When Buffy finds Angel and he's an ass to her is just brutal. Oz and Willow in the van is touching. This is one of the best ever.

    Yes, but what does he insert, and where does he insert it?

    Buffy and Willow wears overalls a lot in seasons 1 and 2. Willow wore them in Phases. I don't remember people wearing them at the time (I'm the same age as the characters) but maybe I was just oblivious. I don't remember wearing them after elementary school. Now I'm going to watch for the final appearance of overalls.

    I did rock the stirrup pants in middle school though. :eek:

    Oops! I meant interesting. He does do a lot more inserting of fangs into necks though.

    It was what he inserted and where that turned him evil.

    S02E15 Phases - B
    S02E16 Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered - B
    S02E17 Passion - A

    Phases was solid with some nice character development. Same for BBB.

    Passion, I cried. :( Amazing episode, but heartbreaking. Maybe the best of the season? When Buffy hit Giles, I got really choked up.

    Willow wears overalls a lot. IIRC Buffy wears them twice, the second time being the end of Becoming. They're her Depressed Pants.

    She definitely wears them more than twice. You commented on them on Ted, but I saw her wearing them in an earlier episode before Ted. I didn't make note at the time which one.

    SMG must have been freezing during filming. They put her in tank tops a lot when most of the other kids in school are in long sleeves.

    I googled - she had on overalls in Inca Mummy Girl. One site called them her "sad overalls" or "security overalls." She also wore overalls when painting the signs in School Hard, but I think painting overalls are forgivable?

    Much like Depressed Overalls I could allow Painting Overalls if I could understand why she owned them in the first place.

    I know some people like(d) them, I just don't understand why. ;) I doubly hate them on pregnant women which is popular for some reason.

    I'm ok with overalls.

    I've been amused at the giant landline phones. Some aren't even wireless!

    Oh yeah, I remembered him when I saw that ep, but then forgot to post about it.:eek:

    Slayers probably have a higher metabolism that keeps her warmer than us regular folks.:D

    I'm at S2E21&22, Becoming parts 1&2.:eek: Oh man, break out the kleenex again.

    S02E18 Killed by Death - C
    S02E19 I Only Have Eyes for You - B
    S02E20 Go Fish - C

    Killed by Death was not as bad as I remembered or expected. Although the demon was way too Freddy Kruger. But Buffy remembering her cousin being killed by the demon was silly.

    I Only Have Eyes for you was quite good. I almost gave it an A. Really good emotional impact, great climax and great end.

    Hey! It's Michael Scofield! Otherwise, a filler episode. (With bad monster make-up.)

    The monster of the week episodes often have a very X-Files feel, especially the endings, like Go Fish.

    Finished watching Becoming. Damn, those are such good eps. At the end of part 2

    When Buffy's back in her sad overalls, and Sarah McLachlan is singing "Full of Grace", I always tear up.

    I think this is when I first became a Spike and Buffy shipper.
