After what seems like a decade in vampire years (meaning, "forever"), the Sofa Dogs podcast has returned to the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In the third season premiere, "Anne" the Slayer has run away from home to the mean streets of L.A. Though she's lost and alone, Buffy seems to do quite well for herself, securing a waitressing job and a decent apartment right in downtown. Unfortunately, she can't escape who she is, and Buffy must investigate when another former Sunnydale resident recognizes her, and some teen runaways start growing old super fast.
Meanwhile, it's the first day of the new school year at Sunnydale High. The Scoobies try to pick up the slack where Buffy left off. Willow is bothered by Oz's lack of school spirit, Xander and Cordelia begin some sort of serious courtship/fighting ritual and Joyce blames Giles for Buffy's disappearance. To celebrate my favorite season of this series, I asked Brent Moore and Elizabeth Coffman from The Geekscape Movie Club to join me. Please listen and enjoy our discussions about 16 millimeter film versus 35, music product placement and alternate hell dimensions. NOTE: Contains some adult language. Listener discretion is advised.
Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the episode on your DVD.
