The 15 Worst Buffy Episodes  10-6

10. Inca Mummy Girl (2x04)
Taf: Is there a Xander + demon episode I actually enjoy? I mean, aside from every Anya episode. Obviously. Still, it’s not the worst Xander + demon episode (SEE BELOW).

Waffles: Hahahahaha Xander + demon episodes are gross. 

Taf: On the other hand, the FACT that Xander is a demon magnet is hilarious, so I don’t know if I would really trade them in.

9. Gingerbread (3x11)
Waffles: So… the mothers of Sunnydale try to burn Buffy and Willow at the stake. That’s a thing that happens. Taf, anything to add?

Taf: Just that I wish we got to see Willow’s family in any other context than this. Literally all we know about Willow’s family is that her mother is overbearing and once tried to burn her at the stake.

8. Pangs (4x08)
Taf: This is just…stupid.

Waffles: What an utter disaster of a Thanksgiving episode. I mean, 2/5ths of the people in the picture are British. C’mon, Joss, it’s like you have no respect for our glorious country. 

Taf: All of my Thanksgivings are at least 2/5ths British, so I don’t really know how to respond to that personal attack. 

Waffles: Well, you could always curse me with syphilis while you’re being un-American anyway. 

7. Teacher’s Pet (1x04)
Waffles: See above. 

Taf: But, while “Inca Mummy Girl” is mostly boring, this one brings bonus teacher-student skeeviness to the mix.

6. Puppet Show (1x09)
Taf: A of all, I hate dummies. Hate and am periodically frightened by. B of all, I can’t even bring myself to hate or be frightened by this episode because it’s just so overwhelmingly silly.

Waffles: Yup. Silly and a half. 

Lol I always thought I was the only one who hated Pangs! So validated right now.

Until the lion has his historian, the hunter will always be the hero.

African Proverb 

This proverb exists in different forms in many parts of Africa

"Until lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter" (Igbo, Nigeria).

"Until lions start writing down their own stories, the hunters will always be the heroes" (Kenya and Zimbabwe).

Black/African history has always being taught/told from the perspective of White American/European colonisers. We need to reclaim our history and culture. No more white African Queens, Kings and Gods, there needs to be a true representation of African history and culture in the media.

First of all, I wanted to thank you. Before I started watching the show, I was really in the closet and I was totally ashamed of who I was. I hated myself. I started watching the show and seeing Cosima and seeing that everything is not about her sexuality and that she is more than her sexuality. My parents weren’t okay with me being gay. I started watching the show with my mum and its helped us start to rebuild our relationship because she sees Cosima and she sees that it’s okay and that people are more than their sexuality. I wanted to thank you for that. And my question is, what’s it like to have that effect on peoples lives? And to know that you are saving people’ lives like you did for me?
