Plot Summary: Buffy and Cordelia compete for Sunnydale's Homecoming Queen. Meanwhile, a group of demons, vampires and assassins compete in a deadly contest known as "Slayerfest"!
Note: Due to technical difficulties, the second half of this recording was lost. As a result, Bob was absent from the rest of the commentary and I had to go it alone. Apologies to Bob and anyone forced to listen to me limp pathetically across the finish line. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the episode on your DVD.

Subject: Ringer - Pilot (1x01)
Record Date: September 19, 2011, 09:09 PM
Plot Summary: A woman witnesses a murder and flees to New York to reconnect with her twin sister, only to discover the sister is also in trouble.
Note: My recording software found a new way to spaz out, and this episode was initially lost (I've recorded almost an hour of static and white noise! Awesome!). Enter Bryan Curry to the rescue! Even though I had declared, "You don't need to lift a finger, I got this!", Bryan used his legendary, ninja podcasting skills to record a back-up file. Now you can listen to us scratch our heads at this frustrating, ever-twisty "modern noir" series, starring and co-executive produced by the lovely and talented, Sarah Michelle Gellar. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the episode on your player. P.S. Be sure to check out Bryan and Angie's new podcast, "Ringercast"!
