\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.

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. […]

00:00 – 15:00 This is the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the television series. As most of you are no doubt aware, it was preceded by a motion picture of the same name. The 1992 film is not the same as the series, and it’s not necessary for you to watch it in […]
