Our 4 part Halloween Hoedown continues to continue with the series 4 episode "Fear Itself", in which Buffy and her fellow scoobies are trapped inside a frat house. The episode was largely inspired by New Deal economics and the work of John Maynard Keynes. This episode will surely prime your pump of Whedon love, and it has a sketch to boot.

One of Angel's major motivating factors in both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel is to atone for his crimes that he committed when he did not have a soul. This raises the question of whether Angel should pay for the crimes of Angelus. We discuss the results of Angel's soul being returned by the Romani Gypsies and their reasons for returning it, and whether these reasons were justified. We also discuss the distinction between Angel, Angelus, and Liam, and briefly discuss the nature of the soul in Buffy.

In this week's episode we redeem the episode She, Angel Season 1 Episode 13. Well... we try to redeem it. Among other subjects, we speak about the female lead character, Angel's dance moves, and mobile phone technology whilst trying to remain as positive as possible. It's hard sometimes.

In this week's Magic Box podcast, we discuss (competitively) whether it was right for Buffy to be kicked out of the Summers house in the episode Empty Places. Was it democracy in action, or just plain old mutiny?

In this episode we discuss whether it was reasonable for Angel and his fellow investigators to defeat Jasmine, or whether it would have been better to allow them to stay in their euphoric slave mentality.

In celebration of Buffy Summers' birthday week, we talk about her birthday experiences - how they progress, how her friends react to them, and all the rest.

 

The theme was supposed to be birthdays more generally but that didn't pan out. Sorry Tara... and Cordelia.
