I did something tonight I haven't done in years, and thought I'd never get to do again...
I got to see an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
that I'd never seen before! It was "Pangs", the episode where the Chumash Indian vengeance spirit wreaks havoc on Buffy's Thanksgiving plans. Somehow I'd never seen that one before, and it didn't get included in the previous reruns, maybe because Angel was in it. It wasn't the best episode ever, but it was original Buffy never before seen by my own eyes!
And now I finally understand some of those references about Xander made later in the series :-)
