EPISODE 9: BUFFY LETS THE PUPPETS DANCE (S01E09 "The Puppet Show”)

 
 
Sunnydale has touched...and felt...for the last time.
— Principal Snyder

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"
