So last night I was doing a quick search for last week’s episode of Buffy because I missed the first half hour of it (thanks goes out to YTV for their incredibly consistent schedule…please note the sarcasm there), and I somehow screwed up taping stuff last Tuesday. I ended up finding it, and as I was searching, I kept on seeing a listing for 6×19…this week’s episode. It said it was a “wild feed” caught off satelite, so I grabbed it and just finished watching it.
Let me say, Buffy has now provided two of my favourite moments of TV this season. The first being the entire “Once More…With Feeling” musical episode, and the second being this episode where the entire season’s worth of plot-lines have finally gelled. It’s beginning to look as if all of the little bits and pieces that have been hinted at all season are about to be wrapped up, and what has been up until now both one of the most entertaining (musical episode, Buffy in an alternate universe where she’s in a sanitarium), and most mundane (Doublemeat Palace, and overall lack of direction of this season) has suddenly all made sense.
I once more vow that I shall never again complain about the great and powerful Joss Whedon and his vision for this series. He knows all, sees all, and kicks some serious ass.
