We hope that it helps you celebrate all that Buffy has brought to the world for the past two decades.

2.08: The Dark Age  

At a certain point in a young girl's life, she will be forced to confront the reality that her Watcher was once her age. For Buffy, that time is now. Stuart McLean (who plays Philip Henry) drops by to talk morgue drawers and zombie makeup, and Kate Leth returns with a tweed-ful installment of Buffy FashionWatch!
