EPISODE 9: BUFFY LETS THE PUPPETS DANCE (S01E09 "The Puppet Show”)
In this week's episode the Boys get their Goosebumps vibes and tackle some seriously wooden acting as a murderous ventriloquist's dummy stalks the school talent show. Or does it? Oh, a twist!
Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:
The seeds of nightmare in all teenage anxieties
A statistically unlikely number of genius students at Sunnydale
The audience as sympathetic voyeur to the horror
Oedipus Rex - embedding classic texts in the Buffy structure
"Once you go wood, nothing's as good"
