I’m aerobicizing. I must have the beat.
— Buffy Summers

It's a dark and stormy night for the Buffy Boys in S02E08 "The Dark Age" when the ghost of Giles's teenage rebellion sleepwalks back into his life. As John Constantine said - the ultimate secret of magic? Any Brit could do it.

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Erosion of childhood ideals: repetition and disintegration of identity

  • Occult, the bachanal and genderqueer - dark magic as a cipher for self-determination and roleplay

  • The shabby grandeur of the English ghost story - M.R. James by way of Sid Vicious

  • Lost Boys Weekend? Eh? Is that anything?

  • "This is what happens when you have school on Saturday."
