Episode #3: Buffy the Vampire Slayer “Welcome to the Hellmouth”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer pilot episode “Welcome to the Hellmouth”

The podcast with nothing much ado about aircrafts, and potentially everything ado with first episodes of a filmic series. Join us today as we cast judgement and determine if the two part (partial) pilot episode for the cult classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be hoisted, or not hoisted: that is the question!

Cheat Sheet: 

  • Petard = bomb
  • Hoist a pilot = bad episode
  • Not hoist a pilot = good episode

Show Notes

{1:00} Background: Long story short, Drew had nothing better to do in high than watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer. As a result Drew loves Buffy and the creator Joss Whedon. Jimbo had never watched any Buffy episodes, but remembered liking the movie as a kid.

{3:45} Summary:

{5:23} High Points: Not much… Feminism. Drew thought the show had ambition. Great 1990s time capsule show.

{7:33} Low Points: Too many! Super cliche cheesy, Giles, bad acting, (you get the point) etc.

{14:40} MVPs: Buffy as the chosen one, and Buffy killing the henchman vampire.

{18:10} Dangling Threads of Interest: Sarah Michelle Gellar; The Buffy movie. Joss Whedon and the Avengers movie. Fight scenes and special effects.

{25:25} Watch or Rewatch: Drew- no, but he will watch a few certain episodes. Jimbo might check out season three at some point in his life.

{25:50} To Hoist or Not to Hoist?: No brainer, hella hoist!

{27:24} Petardar:

{29:27} Next Week: One-Punch Man
