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.
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!
Now, how can you argue with her?
Is it weird that I still dig her?
Vamp Willow will always be hot.
