15. Doublemeat Palace
Waffles:Sooo…. I actually kind of like this episode. And, since I didn’t write it, I don’t need to be shy about saying that I freaking love our limerick for it more than anything. But… objectively kind of awful, I suppose.
Taf: Look, I’ll be straight with you. I do not hate this episode. There are shockingly few Buffy episodes I hate; that is why we can only do the bottom 15.
Taf: On the other hand this episode makes me want to die. I just want to crawl into the couch until I dissolve into dust because dust cannot possibly be this embarrassed by an episode of television. BUFFY MAKES OUT WITH A STUDENT. (It is maybe worth noting that in addition to having a major embarrassment squick, I’m also a high school librarian.)
Waffles: Hahahahahahahahahaha gross. Gross and a half.
13. Buffy vs. Dracula
Waffles: So, I know this episode’s terrible, but I will give it a shout out for being possibly the best instance of Xander being the group butt-monkey. In that he calls himself the group butt-monkey. And I gotta respect it for that. But, no, in all seriousness, this episode’s a mess.
Taf: I appreciate what they were going for, and at times it almost pays off, but mostly it’s just kind of embarrassing. Not in the “Him”, want to bury my head in the couch way. Just in a “Really? This?” way.
12. Where the Wild Things Are
Taf: I…literally don’t care either way about this episode.
Waffles: Um, I do not know how you are not offended by this episode’s existence because in this episode THEY LITERALLY HAVE SEX UNTIL THAT SEX BRINGS BACK THE DEAD. Also Mrs. Landingham does not hurt children! And sex DOES NOT BRING BACK THE DEAD. Also I NEVER WANT TO SEE BUFFY AND RILEY HAVING SEX. I am AMAZED THAT SEEING THIS EPISODE FOR THE FIRST TIME AT AGE 11 DID NOT SCAR ME FOR LIFE. That is all.
Taf: You saw “Gone” at age 11 and it didn’t scar you for life, so. But I can agree, I guess, that I am 100% uninterested in Riley as a sexual being.
Waffles: Yeah, see, now, Spike as a sexual being though. All I’m sayin’.
Taf: He… he does naked push-ups on Buffy’s invisible body. YOU HAD JUST HAD THE TALK THAT WEEK. I, YOUR OLDER SISTER,WAS SCARRED FOR LIFE.
11. Go Fish
Taf: Let’s just all agree to objectify Xander in this episode and go home happy.
