Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:7 EP:5

“Oh, breathtaking! It’s like somebody slaughtered an Abercrombie and Fitch catalog.” – D’Hoffryn

It’s always kind of a concerning when your suddenly presented with the backstory of character more so if their death is seemingly forthcoming as is the case in this episode with Buffy feeling that Anya’s vengeance duties are getting out of hand, sets out to slay her.

It’s bad enough when Angel Grove is being threatened by one big rubber monster, but what about when a whole slew of monsters attack at once? That’s what happens in today’s episode…or is it?

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:07 Ep:04

For all the destain the memory of season 7 brings to mind it seems somewhere in blocking most of it out I forgot about this little run of pretty great episodes that we had with the previous episode “Same Time Same Place” and which here continues with “Help” as Buffy attempts to settle into her new role of the school councillor at Sunnydale High a role that seemingly doesn’t need any qualifications to do seeing how she’s pretty much walked into the role. Through her first batch of students Buffy comes into contact with a young girl called Cassie who predicts that she is to die on friday causing Buffy and the Scoobies to leap into action to prevent this.

Original Airdate: October 3, 1994

Well, after our last big two-part adventure, everybody’s pretty bummed out about Tommy losing his powers.

Let’s take a look at how they manage without him in Missing Green. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:02 E:14

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:07 Ep:03

I saved the world with talking! From my mouth! My mouth saved the world!” – Xander

While season seven might not be anyone’s favourite and hence a lack of enthusiasm for myself in having to revisit a season which I’d for the most part erased from my memory including it would seem this episode which shockingly is actually really great especially in terms of the monster of the week which this time sees Buffy tasked with hunting down a skin eating demon when a skinless body turns up at Xanders construction site.

Episode Title: Green No More Part I
Original Airdate: September 27, 1994

We’ve been working up to a big event in Angel Grove for several episodes now. Tommy has been seeing his powers get weaker and weaker with each episode. Now, we are at the crossroads. Let’s see what happens in Green No More Part I. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:02 E:12

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:07 Ep:02

After a shaky opening there was the hope that this season would follow the suite of the previous seasons by giving us more of a traditional episode which it does initially seem like we might get as Buffy and Xander try to track down a worm like demon which appears to be stalking a young woman after consuming her pet dog. Frustratingly this is an episode which is still plagued by plotting issues especially when the monster is pushed back to what almost feels like a b-plot.

Original Airdate: September 26, 1994

We’re a good seventy episodes into the wonder that is Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, so it should come as no surprise by now that no monster is too out there for this show. A giant pig with a roman helmet, we’ve seen it! How about an evil clown that turns into a monster pineapple…been there, done that. So now it’s time for something that truly makes you wonder what the writers were smoking when they dreamt this up. Prepare yourselves for a giant bug that plays heavy metal guitar, in The Song of Guitardo. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:02 E:11
