\m/15-Minute Hellmouth\m/: Buffy the Vampire Slayer DeepWatch: Season 1, Episode 7: “Angel” (airdate: Monday, April 14, 1997): Part 2 of 3

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 […]

Van Helsing: Season 1 — a review

Here’s how I started watching this one. Netflix uses an algorithm that learns the viewer’s taste in television shows and movies, based on previous selections and ratings, then begins to make recommendations for entertainment choices based upon this history. When I was a business college student way back in the Pleistocene Epoch, targeted advertisements based […]

15:01 – 30:00 The last time you and I got together to talk about this episode of BTVS, I mentioned that it wasn’t one of my favorite episodes. And, it’s not. But, as I watched it this time, with what I think is more clinical detachment, I began to wonder why this was the case. […]

30:01 – The End Previously on 15-Minute Hellmouth . . . Buffy meets and likes the sensitive Owen Thurman, who likes Emily Dickinson poetry because of her fascination with the morbid.

15:01 – 30:00 In case you missed the part where I explained the premise of this \m/15-Minute Hellmouth\m/ project, I am writing an annotated synopsis/review of every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (commonly known in the fandom as BTVS) in fifteen-minute increments. This was inspired, in part, by podcasts such as Star Wars Minute, […]

00:00 – 15:00 When this episode of Buffy aired in 1997, Puff Daddy (with Mase) was still #1 on the US top-ten charts with “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down,” while the Wallflowers’s “One Headlight” ruled the alternative charts. Around this time is when I realized my musical tastes were considered more “alternative” than “mainstream.” Over […]

15:01 – 30:00 The last time we met to talk in Sunnydale, California, we had just found out that a girl named Amy Madison was the witch behind the stunt that made Amber Grove’s hands flame-on during the cheerleading tryouts.
