Buffy Boys

Jun 4, 2019

Joyce meets a new man and sparks fly, but his fragmented behaviour just doesn't compute for Buffy. Will he learn that he's not being very user friendly or he just not wired that way? It's S02E11 "Ted"! Ted's a robot.

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Misogyny and Freudian tension through the lens of noted character actor John Ritter
  • Handwaving fantasy physics: the 1950s robot with a floppy disk heart
  • Structuring and integrating parallel narratives in genre fiction: the A, B, C and sometimes D plot
  • The Scooby Gang and the Goshdarn Conundrum of Murdering Humans
  • "Uh, her studies! Book-cracker Buffy. It's kind of her nickname"
