In the blog posts for each episode you will find a link to the respective imdb page for that episode. I quote directly the storyline paragraph from imdb (why reinvent the wheel I say) and research every review and reference from this site. There is also an interesting FAQ section on this link that I haven’t explored fully yet. I also used the trial platinum version to obtain the agent details of the cast for future possible interviews. Thanks to imdb and all that left a review there.

In the blog posts for each episode you will find a link to the respective wikis page for that episode. I quote directly the pop culture references and production and other details from this site. Before each podcast episode I read through the detailed synopsis on this site as a refresher before recording. Thanks to the wikis community that contributed to the content of the wikia site.

CRITICALLY TOUCHED
This website is one of the online sources I use and I can’t remember which podcast but I do mention it from time to time when discussing a topic or point of view raised by Mikelangelo or in the discussion comment pages on the site. The number of comments (around 50 per episode) on this site is as impressive as the length of time the discussion has gone on for with comments dating back to 2006. Many insights are to be found here.

The main buffy related news can be found under the #buffy or #btvs on twitter. I have included the feed to both below so you can actually retweet etc from this feed if you see something interesting.

FACEBOOK
So I thought for completeness I had better include a Facebook link so I typed into google “buffy facebook page” and discovered that it has over 1.5 Million likes. Wow. That deserves a feed link also.

I am relatively new to reditt but did notice recently that there is a dedicated buffy subreditt for fans.

Episode 28: Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered

It's Valentine's Day, but Cordelia and Xander's romance has hit a bad patch, since Cordelia is losing status as Head Bitchqueen of Sunnydale High. Desperate to remain popular, she dumps Xander, even though she still loves him. Xander spies Amy Madison use magic to avoid doing homework, so he blackmails her into casting a love spell on Cordelia, so he can dump her to make her feel as bad as he does. However, the spell backfires, and every woman in Sunnydale except Cordelia falls madly in love with Xander—and we do mean madly. Buffy, Joyce, Willow, Jenny, Drusilla and every other woman, including Amy herself, fight amongst themselves for Xander's attention, with Amy turning Buffy into a rat to eliminate some of the competition. Xander runs away to Buffy's house, and is seconds away from being killed by the love-crazed horde, when Giles finally manages to break the spell. Cordelia decides Xander is worth putting up with the catcalls from the rest of the school, and they get back together.

Quotes

Willow: Don't be so jumpy. I've been in your bed before.

Xander: Yeah. But, Will, we were both in footy pajamas.

Willow: Xand, I've been thinking.

Xander: Will, I think I know what you've been thinking. But this is all my fault. I cast a spell and it sort of backfired.

Willow: How long have we been friends?

Xander: A long, long time. Too long to do anything that might change that now.

Willow: But friendships change all the time. People grow apart. They grow closer.

Xander: This is good. How close we are now. I feel very comfortable with this amount of closeness. In fact I could even back up a few paces and still be happy. (Backs up a step) See?

Willow: I want you, Xander . . . to be my first.

Xander: Baseman. Please tell me we're talking baseball.

Willow: Shh. (Backing Xander against a door) We both know it's right. (Begins kissing his neck)

Xander: It's not that I don't find you sexy.

Willow: Is it Oz? Don't worry about him. He's sweet, but he's not you.

Xander: Yes he is. And you should go to him . . .'cause he's me. (Willow responds by kissing his ear) I—I—I don't want to use force.

Willow: Mmm, force is okay.


Trivia

During the opening scene, Buffy and Xander and shooting the breeze about relationships, when set upon by Vampires. The scene takes place next to one of the ridiculous amounts of Mausoleum's in Sunnydale. What's the name given on the top of the Mausoleum?

So we had talks about this whole upcoming apocalypse, but how did the 'normal' people know about this and thus leave Sunnydale? This was probably mentioned but I forgot.. i just wondered how did they know that there were no real people in Sunnydale when the hellmouth was closed.

Also another question: why did they go in and kill all the Turok-han, when the seal was closed anyway? with the tears of Andrew, the active energy was gone too. so in theory the Turok-Han could've stayed there forever without making any trouble, right?

This is just a little oddity I found amusing and pretty cool. I bought the novels based on the show from the very early days (point of fact they actually helped improve my reading as a kid) so I've always kept an eye on the book series - well, as long as they were being published, anyway.

I came across a few titles that I was unaware of, that seemed to be based on specific episodes, and looked different from the regular novels.

Turns out Scholastic UK published a few ELT (English Language Teaching) books for use in schools, to help foreign language students learn English, and for kids who struggle with reading, based on 'I Robot, You Jane', 'Inca Mummy Girl', and 'Halloween.'

They're written in a very simplistic, easy to understand way like children's books - more based on the episodes rather than novelizations of the scripts - with stills from the show to provide illustrations. And they use British spelling. I've never actually seen the books themselves, but via online searching I found you can read sample chapters of the books and look at teaching resources, such as Q&A sheets and lesson ideas I presume would be used in classes.

I know there've been numerous Buffy based lectures and things at universities and colleges, but imagine being in regular school and getting to read books based on the show in English for reading lessons. I was a kid when the show was first airing so I would've loved it haha! If only they'd done it then instead of in 2005.

Just thought it was an interesting little curio, to see the show used like this for educational purposes.
