30:01 – The End Previously on 15-Minute Hellmouth . . . Moloch the Corrupter had been trapped inside a book since the Dark Ages.

15:01 – 30:00 Previously on 15-Minute Hellmouth . . . Moloch was a demon who, in the year 1418, was trapped in a book by a group of Italian priests who formed something known as a Circle of Kayless. Don’t know what that is? It doesn’t matter. Because I am an unrepentant nerd, this made […]

00:00 – 15:00 It has been two weeks since the mythically important episode “Angel” aired. We both liked that one a lot, you and me. Any episode that followed would suffer in the comparison. Case in point: “I, Robot . . . You Jane.” I mean, my issues with this episode begin with the title, […]

30:01 – The End You remember what happened last time, don’t you? After Buffy Summers and Angel share their first kiss, Angel involuntarily goes all wrinkly faced and Buffy learns that he’s a vampire. The consensus among the Scooby Gang is that Buffy’s role as the Slayer means that she is obligated to kill him. […]

15:01 – 30:00 In Part 1 of this BTVS DeepWatch, Buffy Summers and the mysterious guy known as Angel finally spend the night together in Buffy’s bedroom. No, not like that. It’s more of a chaste, mostly-innocent sleepover. Buffy takes Angel to her home, inviting him inside, which is important because he’s a—you know—vampire, a […]

00:00 – 15:00 Before this episode begins, we get a “Previously on Buffy…” segment. I believe this was the first, but I could be mistaken. The title of this episode is “Angel,” and this “Previously on…” segment seems to be about Angel, in part. Go figure. The rest is about the Master and the Anointed […]

30:01 – The End The library at Sunnydale High School is the perfect place for us to meet to talk about these episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Yes, I know this is one of our main sets for only the first three seasons. But, I liked the library, with all of its musty old […]
