Buffy Boys

Nov 28, 2019

With a vaguely defined but totally real Apocalypse in full swing, Xander gets sidelined into his own adventure - Zombies! Explosions! Meta jokes! The Boys discover that the real treasure was the friends we ignored along the way in S03E13 "The Zeppo".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Defining the view askew - Whedon and the playfulness of Point-of-View
  • The Mundane as the heart and audience surrogate in fantasy settings
  • Combat knives, vintage cars, snake heads and other penis metaphors
  • Which Half?: the ambiguous cannibalism of werewolves
  • "Gotta think. I can't believe I had sex. Okay, bombs. Already dead guys with bombs."
