Tiny Fences: A Buffy Podcast

United States

Amanda's watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the first time, Andrea's rewatching it for the umpteenth time, hilarity is sure to ensue.

Episodes

505: No Place Like Home  

There's nothing like a battle with a super powerful, unhinged lady in red to soften the news that your sister's not really your sister, right Buffy?

We've got lots to talk about this ep; the big Dawn revelation, opening the Magic Box, new Big Bad in town, Joyce is still sick, Spike's upping his stalker game. 

504: Out of My Mind  

"Out of My Mind"? More like get this chip out of my head! With a weak 'A' plot featuring Riley and some Initiative shenanigans, we get to rely on the subplots with Spike and Harmony, and Joyce and Jaffy to keep things interesting this week.

503: The Replacement  

Double the Xander, double the fun?! It's all about character growth for our favourite male, non-teacher Scooby this week. 

We chat about confidence, weakness and seizing opportunities this week as we discuss 'The Replacement'

502: Real Me  

It's time for us to learn all about Jaffy! (#JaffyForever) Just how does having a little sister affect the Slayer? And how does she fit into the Scoobies?

We talk about that, but with a lot of Babysitter's Club references, and confusion as to why a 14 year-old (even one who lives in Sunnydale requires so much supervision) 

501: Buffy vs Dracula (Live at Geek Girl Con '16)  

Who's ready for some post-Halloween, live podcast goodness?! Amanda and Andrea were in Seattle for Geek Girl Con and did a live podcast of 5x01 for a wonderful crowd of con attendees.

There were songs, an impressive dance and some of the BEST predictions yet from Amanda

#JaffyForever 

422: Restless  

It's time for us to go on a journey through the subconscious of the Scoobies in Restless!

 

421: Primeval  

Amanda's confused, is this the finale? It feels like the finale. 

We chat about Adam and the Initiative and how they never quite worked as villains, and the reconciliation of the Scoobies. We also touch on the the sad state of affairs for Riley and the even sadder fate of Maggie Walsh. 

420: The Yoko Factor  

The WB would have us believe this episode is ALL about Angel being back in town and having a testosterone-off with Riley, but we know there's so much more going on!
Spike breaks up the team, and easily, it just takes a little needling here and there and all the lack of communication that's been building this season works in his favour. 

419: New Moon Rising  

Moon's in the title, must be werewolf time in Sunnydale again! 
Obviously, with Oz back in town, stirring up feelings for Willow, we talk A LOT about that (like, a lot) and how it relates to her relationship with Tara and the rest of the Scoobies.
However, we do dedicate a little time to being happy about Riley finally picking a (the right) side, lamenting Adam's lameness and arguing about the Initiative! 

418: Where the Wild Things Are  

Ugh.
Do you hate "Where the Wild Things Are"? US TOO! So much so that we could only find 45 minutes worth of things to talk about in this terrible, horrible, no-good episode. 
But we did add some Tiny Fences-style karaoke at the end to make up for it! 

417: Superstar  

We welcome back guest Lauren for a laugh-filled podcast for 'Superstar'!

While there's very little real development plot-wise this episode does show us that even when an ultimate authority shows up, Buffy's 'slayerness' eventually shines through. There's also, inevitably, a lot of shrimp talk. 

Angel 118-119: Five by Five & Sanctuary  

We complete our Faith trilogy (quadrology?) with John with a rare trip to Angel!

416: Who Are You?  

We continue our journey through the Faith/Buffy character study that are 415-416 with "Who Are You?"

415: This Year's Girl  

Faith's back! And so is one of our favourite guests, John! 

We have a lot of discussion about Faith, and how her actions are dictated by her upbringing, her feelings about Buffy, and not being the Slayer.

We also detour into how Xander and Willow seem to revert to high school versions of themselves at the mention of Faith.

Andrea can't help but note that even though Adam's the supposed big bad, he's dropped the second Faith's back in the picture. Everyone also reminisces about how much they miss the Mayor

414: Goodbye Iowa  

After break from recording Amanda and Andrea are back with a long(ish) episode to discuss "Goodbye Iowa"

Be forewarned, Riley haters there's a lot of praise heaped on Marc Blucas' performance in this episode. There's also a fair amount of Andrea being frustrated with Amanda's devil's advocacy for Forrest and Adam.

413: The I in Team  

"Wellll, that escalated quickly" That's how Amanda and Andrea feel about today's episode. 

The ladies get into a conversation of science vs magic and skepticism vs faith and how those two 'extremes' are represented in the Scoobies and the Initiative.

412: A New Man  

We welcome back Julia to round out the 'Ethan episodes' and discover that the theme of this episode is "Poor Giles!" (we say it MANY times)
Also, it's Buffy's birthday, and for the first time in YEARS, she gets to have an actual party where nothing terrible happens to her afterwards, Giles on the other hand...

411: Doomed  

In the aftermath of Hush, Buffy and Riley try to sort out their relationship, Spike pokes at Xander and Willow's place in the Scoobies and a *another* apocalypse tries to make itself known in Sunnydale

Please note, there's definitely an awkward moment where it becomes very apparent that Andrea's mouth moves faster than her brain...

410: Hush  

It's time for one of the all-time great episodes of Buffy: "Hush"!

409: Something Blue  

Ah, Something Blue, when the follies hit Sunnydale. 

We welcome back Alicen as a guest to talk about the ridiculousness that is this episode. We get some sweet Riley/Buffy moments, and some truly sad Willow moments.
