To give themselves time to review their sizable list of scary episodes, Erin and Kelly take on the much simpler task of examining some oft-forgotten gems of Buffy's pretty shaky first season. Yes, "That One With Amy" faces off against "Invisible Clea DuVall" with nothing on the line, because it's just a discussion. The episode culminates with some brainstorming on how the pair will approach The Worst. Come one, come all, and thrill at failed coin tosses, the "Tonight on the WB" guy, the almost it-people of the late 90s, too many maesters, Wish vs. Witch, and Xander Harris: Sophomore AP Student!

With a recording lost to technical problems, Kelly and Erin venture forward with new themes in mind. And first on deck, the only sorcerer able to keep his cool in a silk shirt and pleated slacks, the beloved Ethan Rayne. Why was he so great? Could his greatness have been extended? How great would a Giles and Ethan show have been? Then, as a lengthy capstone, the two catalogue which Buffy episodes might actually be scary, for future use. Join us...Rippers!

Putting the darkness of seasons 5, 6, and 7 behind them, Erin and Kelly look ahead by diving back into the past. To bring things back around to how great Buffy could be, another viewing party is much more smoothly and hastily planned. Featuring some light talk of the musical from two people who are not great fans of musicals.

Ring in the new year with some old frustrations! Following up on last year's stunning cliffhanger, Kelly shares his new most hated episode. In the process, the two discuss tediously twee British names, the madness that seized the United States circa 2002-2003, the cons and pros of Spike, and season 7's myriad remaining crimes before resolving on a new path for a new year. You say you know how the world turns around? Come join us!

It's time for Kelly and Erin to face down season 7! What's wrong with season 7, you ask? Kelly has a handy list to help you figure it out. Yes, the gang's all here--the First, Buffy's job, misguided token representation, toes, the capabilities of Google Docs, Dewey Crowe, lame fights, Kennedy, awful jokes, bizarre misogyny, a continually growing but still distressingly small catalog of laughs, pen tossing, and exasperated sighs. Oh, so many exasperated sighs. And there's a cliffhanger too!

With the specter of season 7 still looming, the pair elect to lighten things up, and do a deep dive on the other primary GF character: the beloved Tara. What did this character mean to the show and beyond? What was the deal with Dawson and his creek? Thrill, as two straight people try to fumble their way through the many gay issues raised!

At last, Kelly and Erin descend into season 6, for real! No stone is left unturned, no matter how irritating and enraging. It's all here! Abuse! Dumpster sex! Misogyny! Stupid plot lines! Misogyny! The destruction of characters and stakes! In these rageful times, partake of some trivial rage. Don't worry, the musical hardly gets mentioned.
