The Dark Age is the eighth
episode from the second season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It
seems that Giles was something of a miscreant during his formative
years in England. One night of dabbling in the dark arts results in
the death of a friend, the unleashing of a globe-trotting demon and
a freaky tattoo. Now, Giles must own up to his sins of long ago, as
his murderous past has caught up with him.
Throw in the slithering Ethan Rayne, the sexy Jenny Calendar and
one nasty-looking demon, and The Dark Age is the place to be. Join
me as I talk about unexplainable green lighting, a possible
connection to Firefly by way of set decoration and one of the more
baffling continuity mistakes in the history of this series. As per
usual, please listen for my preemptive countdown before starting
the episode on your DVD.
