Buffy First Watch – Season 1 Episodes 5-8

I’m back. Even though episode 1.4 was a total drag, we’re going to press forward. This is my very first viewing of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and it’s only been 21 years since the show first aired.

As long as I can bear it, I’ll keep writing about the experience. You’re welcome?

1.5

Can’t a girl get a minute for a date? Nope.

Ah, the logistics of pagers. A beautiful plot device lost to the past.

Stacking pillows in front of the door. That’ll keep the vampires out. Particularly the one locked in the room with you. Also, “pork and beans”. Can anyone explain this line to me?

Mental note: never kill Buffy’s date.

Line of the show, “That was my hopeful ear. Can you repeat that?”

1.6

High school clique as a pack of hyenas. Apt.

Oh. Dodgeball.

Bye-bye principal Flutie. That was pretty dark.

Line of the night: “In his animal state, his idea of wooing doesn’t involve a Yanni CD and a bottle of Chianti.”

Tricky Willow. Love it!

Some fun character development. I like the final bit with Xander and Giles.

1.7

Three against one? No fair! Oh. 3v2 is better. I’ll accept this.

Giles (Anthony Head) is fun. He’s great.

Kissing vampires, Buffy? Shame! Enter Xander’s logic: gotta kill Angel. Big surprise.

Willow gets the line of the night: “Nonononono, no speaking up. That way leads to madness. And sweaty palms.”

Plot twist! Also, I’m all for the death of annoying vampires. Way to go, Angel.

Yes, Xander. They definitely aren’t kissing.

1.8

DON’T OPEN THE MOLOCH BOOK BUFFY!

“The only reality is virtual. If you’re not jacked in, you’re not alive.” – Fritz the best actor EVAR.

DON’T SCAN THE MOLOCH BOOK WILLOW!

Oh… an email love affair with an unidentified person. Could be a circus freak, or worse, a guy with back hair. Nope. At least it isn’t that bad. Just a digitized demon.

Xander wins again: “To read– makes– our– speaking English good.”

By Fritz.

Bye Moloch. A little poetic justice never hurts.

Conclusion

Still watching. I’m not sold yet, but it is a fun piece of history.

  1. Is this your first viewing of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series? If so, I hope you stick with it to the end. Series 1 is a little dated in certain aspects but this will fade as the seasons progress. Happy watching.
