Watching the first season of Buffy again is an exercise in 90s fashion.
Also the first two seasons are full of Buffy in miniskirts. Then when they realized, hey, people actually like the show for itself, they toned back Buffy’s Sex appeal.
From the Last Sundown DVD featurette.
Little Buffy Things: Band Candy // Forever
After Joyce’s death and funeral, Giles is seen listening to Tales of Brave Ulysses, the same song he and Joyce were listening to when they were “teenagers” in Band Candy.
Nothing in this show makes me emotional, except for this moment in Forever 5.17. This is the true essence of grief and mourning.
This is one of the reasons I love Joss’ writing so much. The past is just as much part of the characters’ lives as it is for anyone in real life. Joss always reaches back to find that memory that would be brought up by events currently happening. Just like they are brought forth in our lives. We make connections and Joss writes that into his work. It’s what makes his characters real.
Five by five is a military term used to indicate audio clarity and volume, with five being the highest.
It is also used in the film “Aliens” when the dropship is entering the planet’s atmosphere “We’re in the pipe, five by five.” Im not sure what the numbers mean in this instance, but probably something similar to the first situation.
Also notice Willow is slut shaming. Bad Willow!
Just think of where this could have gone if Buffy hadn’t cockblocked. (Is there a girl version of that term?)
“Beaverdam’d” is a term Ive heard…
