Welcome to the first episode of our brand new Favourites Series! …

Back in 2008, Kelly and Rachael recorded the highest rated episode of the original MyTV Podcast- The Buffy/Angel Special, looking back on two of their favourite series, how they compared, how they aged and how they changed TV forever. Despite the atrocious audio quality, we thought we’d share it with you as part of our […]

In the spirit of full disclosure, I have to admit that when I was first approached about the opportunity to see Pirate Lives! The Musical! (by David Marino and Stephen Gilbane, directed by Marino and musically directed by Gilbane), I was slightly apprehensive. I’d never heard of the works that served as the inspiration for […]

There’s a stigma to any show that can be called “procedural”. The TV landscape has become so saturated with CSIs and Law & Orders and versions of NCIS that it seems like there’s not a lot left. The genre of crime/patient/case-of-the-week plotting and very basic character development is really for casual viewers. For true procedurals […]

My love for the redeemable bad boy has been well chronicled on this site, and with my ever-abiding and increasing love for Glee‘s Puck and HIMYM‘s Barney as continuing proof, I suppose it hasn’t really ended. But recently, while rewatching Veronica Mars Season Three (because, well, if it’s a season that I can’t quote entirely […]

One of Entertainment Weekly’s newest photo galleries is a run down of what they consider to be the 25 greatest episodes in the Whedonverse. And while I don’t agree with every choice (how are “Waiting in the Wings”, “Tabula Rasa” and “Spin the Bottle” not on this list?), they get it almost exactly right. So, […]

The collaborations between the Whedon-verse and the BSG-galaxy just keep on coming. The one time blonde haired bad boy, James Marsters, is guest starring in a minimum of three episodes on the BSG spin-off Caprica, which debuts on the newly-renamed Syfy on January 22nd, 2010. But in the meantime, check out the pretty awesome pilot/miniseries […]

This weekend I sat down to watch the (awesome) movie Star Trek for the third time (yes, yes, I’m a dork. Let’s move on). And, not for the first time, I marveled at the epic awesomeness that is JJ Abrams blockbuster success. A large portion of that success has to do with its two leads […]

For a long time, I’ve wanted to do a side by side match up of BtVS and the Twilight series (it’s pretty obvious from reading the books that Stephanie Meyer, their author, was heavily influenced by heaping helpings of classic WB shows like BtVS and Roswell, but its extra-specially influenced by the Buff) and it […]

There are few things I hold sacred in this world. I pretty much take most things lightly. But Buffy the Vampire Slayer might be the closest thing I have to a religion. Think about it. You’ve got it all. Moral Code? Check. Heroes? Check. A strong respect for life and souls? Check. Witty puns? Double […]

I always knew that Stephanie Meyer, author of the inexplicably popular Twilight series, was a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and that in crafting her quadrilogy, the knowledge of Buffy-lore was seeping into her writing, but it’s easy to forget this when dealing with a mythology that turns vampires into puppy dogs. And then […]

Last night’s Dollhouse was advertised by FOX as an “Event” and Whedon himself hyped it by saying that 6 and 8 were the real pinnacle of the beginning of the Season. I have to say though, I was a little… dare I say it?… disappointed. It’s not that “Needs” wasn’t a good episode, rife with […]

Happier News in the Buffyverse

My favourite famous couple had a baby! Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof (Willow and Wesley in Buffy/Angel)’s first child, a daughter named Satyana Denisof, was born on March 24th, her mother’s birthday, in LA. After meeting on the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 1999, the couple was married in 2003 and serve as godparents […]

With the recent guest appearance of Amber Benson on Private Practice, the total number of Buffyverse supporting players to appear on a Shonda Rhimes show has been pushed to 6 (that I can think of). Between Grey’s Anatomy and it’s spinoff Private Practice, Shonda fans have been treated to the best of the supporting casts of Buffy the […]

This week’s BBT featured a guest spot by none other than Michael Trucco. Don’t know who he is? You clearly haven’t been doing your nerdy homework. Trucco is none other than dream-worthy sometimes-Starbuck-love-interest Samuel Anders from Battlestar Galactica. And that’s a big deal for a lot of nerds, from me to Dwight Schrute. Here he […]

I’ve just finished watching the entire series of Angel on DVD. Now that my consumption of the Buffycannon is complete I feel a little analysis is necessary. The best way I can think to do this is to analyse by character (my favourite aspect of the two spectacular shows). And thus I give you my run down of the […]

Disk Five of Buffy Season 2 on DVD two episodes, back to back feature 3 hollywood actors of the swoon-worthy sort (all before they got famous, all in small to tiny parts) I Only Have Eyes For You stars Christopher Gorham (later in life to star in Popular, Out of Practice, Ugly Betty and more) […]
