Buffy Boys

Sep 2, 2019

Buffy's doing her best to fit back into her old routine: study, slay, sleep, repeat. But it's tough when she's kicked out of school, her friends are giving her the cold shoulder and so are the zombies her mother accidentally reanimated with a demonic Nigerian art piece.

You bring the keg, buddy - the Buffy Boy's are the dip at S03E02 "Dead Man's Party".

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Zombi(e) Zeitgeist - the cultural influence of the restless reanimated from traditional Haitian folklore to its appropriation into Western science-myth
  • The incredible BDE (British Dad Energy) of Giles protecting Buffy 
  • The interrupted sleep of the Slayer: vaseline-coated dreamscapes as a cryptic canvas
  • "Chosen Family" - queer identity as a vector for community building in supernatural stories
  • "Would you like me to convince you?"
