TV Good Sleep Bad #4: “Buffy the Vampire Slayer & The Booth at the End”

Once in every generation, I will have to grit my teeth and watch an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Surprisingly enough, I found a few positive things to say about it, although it didn’t exactly convert me into a Buffiac or whatever the property’s fans call themselves.

I also found an unintended theme linking the two shows we discussed this episode: things that involved, in some way or another, someone named Xander.

Xander Berkeley stars in THE BOOTH AT THE END.

In this episode, we discuss:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer 1.08, “I Robot…You Jane” (1997): A demon uploads itself onto the internet and immediately starts macking on Willow. I bet he still lives in his parents’ cellar, downloading pictures of…

The Booth at the End season one (2010): John Connor’s foster father in Terminator 2 sits in a diner and makes Faustian bargains with people. You read that right–we covered an entire season, but keep in mind that’s only five 20-minute episodes.

Next month: Two festive holiday-themed episodes of South Park.
