Look, Scoobies... We promised you that things would never get bad on Angel and that we'd always be happy here on Angel on Top, and... Well, hey—we're still doing better than our nemeses over at Buffering the Vampire Slayer right now, right? Right. So just "Sleep Tight," because we'll get through this particular emotional hurdle together. (Do you like how I used the episode title in context like that?) Sure, Angel might not get over losing his son to Holtz and a Hell dimension, and Wesley might not get over having his throat slit, but... Hey, Fred and Gunn were really cute in this episode, right? Again: Right. So join your hosts (a couple of goofs) LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferingverse, AKA Bones and Also Bones, AKA the Gunn Squad, AKA Theodore K. Mullins and Frank Scabopolis, and so much more) as they discuss "Sleep Tight."

In our last live-taping of the season, Captain Can-Do is BACK and he has a SCAR and he wears GLOVES and a LEATHER VEST and he has a WIFE named Sam and we LOVE HER. Listen, this is the one where Riley comes back to town to find some demon eggs, Buffy is horny for anyone with or without a pulse, and we ruminate on the temperature of vampire penises? You're incredibly welcome, and yes it is S6E15: As You Were.

Ah, it's the annual tradition of marking the birth of Buffy Summers with interdimensional chaos! Halfrek has capitalized on Dawn's wish to keep everyone inside the house, Anya is hoisting a red-shirted boy into the mix (lookout, buddy), there's a demon who uses his sword like a Polly Pocket, Spike has too many muscle cramps to count, and WE LOVE SOPHIE.

6.13 Dead Things

6.13 Dead Things

2021-05-1201:34:481

If only we could go back in time and be held by the sweet embrace of robot boyfriends, demons on the internet, snake mayors, and bad eggs. Alas, we are here together in Season 6, and today we are discussing Episode 13: Dead Things. Somehow, despite the heaviness of the episode itself, we find ourselves having a LOT to say about one Fatih Lehane, ranting on middle parts and Gen Z, and delighted in sheer horror at what has been done to Buffy's green t-shirt. Join us, we shall journey forth together! For a deeper conversation on the heavier themes in today's episode, please see below for information on the conversation between Alba Daza and Jess Clark! CW: Sexual Violence, Physical Violence +++ JESS CLARK in Conversation with Alba Daza CW: Sexual Violence, Physical Violence Listen here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/51142821 As noted in the intro to today's episode, Producer Alba Daza had a conversation with Jess Clark, doing a deeper dive into the trio's attempted rape and murder of Katrina in this week's episode — examining why Andrew and Jonathan, specifically, seem surprised to hear Katrina call it what it is by name, how the trio is specifically positioned to help us examine toxic masculinity, incel culture, and (of course) the patriarchy. Jess Clark is the Prevention Manager at Solace Crisis Treatment Center (a rape crisis center) in Santa Fe, NM and a consultant for Catharsis Productions out of Chicago. He has been doing sexual violence prevention for a decade and his work focuses on increasing youth capacity to interrogate systems of oppression, exploring queer/trans masculinites as a site of violence prevention, and supporting organizations in better serving transgender communities through policies and best practices.A massive thank you to both Jess and Alba for having this conversation. +++ LOCATE YOUR HOSTS UPON THE INTERNET Jenny Owen Youngs: @jennyowenyoungs; jennyowenyoungs.com Kristin Russo: @kristinnoeline; kristinnoeline.com Buffering the Vampire Slayer: @bufferingcast on twitter, facebook, and instagram Learn more about our team at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/our-team  +++ Produced by: Kristin Russo, Jenny Owen Youngs, and Alba Daza Edited by: John Mark Nelson & Kristin Russo +++ JOIN OUR PATREON FAMILY!!

Scoobies, the wait is finally over, and it is time for "Waiting in the Wings." That's right, the gang at Angel Investigations is stepping (and tripping) out — and The WB circa 2002 is absolutely buzzing about it. As are your hosts, LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferingverse, AKA Bones and Also Bones, AKA the Gunn Squad, AKA Theodore K.

We hung out with the always-wonderful and, of course, splendiferous Clare Kramer! We had so much dang fun talking to her about her new podcast, Fanaddicts (which launches today!), that we decided to put the entire conversation right here in the main feed. A little extra joy for your week, Scoobies! We talk about Jenny's deep knowledge on the mating rituals of stoats, Kristin's newfound-love-of-plumbing, Clare's penchant for using Sharpie on her children's arms, and we review our astrological charts — since this podcast remains committed to being as gay as possible.

In this episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, everyone gathers at the local pool to go swimming and talk about their feelings while sipping on ice cold Coca-Cola! Just kidding! This is the one where we meet Rack and strive to untangle the realities of destructive responses to trauma from problematic tropes attached to substance misuse, the one where Buffy re-dons her post-coital pleather skirt to storm off the set of 1080p HGTV, and the one where Dawn lands an amazing kick to the demon we've named "Razzmatazz" and slaps Willow across the face.

Just started listening, binging through as much of season one as I can before I work in 9 hours. The Welcome to the Hellmouth song made me laugh, I loved it so much. I'm so excited to keep listening and hear the songs for the rest of the episodes! :3

Hi, ladies! I love love love your podcast and have also started listening to your sister podcast. I also plan to listen to your Veronica Mars podcast. I am writing, besides to tell you how much I love you, is to beg you to also do a Vampire Diaries and The Originals podcast! I don't know if you have ever watched them but they are amazing! I need to hear your unique take on them please. Thanks again for creating this. 😁

THANK YOU FOR THIS. What a fantastic, positive message. Proud to be a Scooby, ashamed this action is necessary, excited to be part of a larger movement in educating myself and others, eager to support and amplify Black and Brown voices. It's not about me. I'm listening. I want to help. I want to be better.

I love the idea, I love the recap song, but I'm not loving the girls. I'm on episode 6 and bc I LOVE Buffy and have actually wished to be a slayer since I was 12 when I first started watching this, I'm sticking around to see if this becomes less "bullying" the characters and more breakdown of the ideas. I can't really tell the girl's voices apart and although I'm very much an LGBTQ supporter, I wish they focused more on the show itself and not dissecting to find the gay that's not there (sometimes it is) and not fact checking before putting episodes on the air. I'm sticking around for a bit longer to see if things get less annoying, bc I do enjoy the show and Kristin, being a newcomer, is entertaining at times. Fingers crossed.

Yay! Since I started so late, all the goodies you promise will have been out for ages! Can't wait to go get a compilation of your episode summary songs! The one about how much you love Cordelia better be on it...

This show is everything. I appreciate all the comments, whether it's about plot, character, costume, or the marvel that is Cordelia. You're taking a show I love and making it next level, and then adding a great summary song as the cherry on top. Love y'all!!!
