When She Was Bad / Some Assembly Required
In the Season Two opener When She Was Bad, Buffy must stop The Annointed One and his followers from raising The Master from his grave. Her own inner demons will prove a problem, however, as she struggles to get over, ya know... dying. Kristen and Mike welcome guest host Kara to the show! They discuss the need for superhero therapists and break down the choreography of Buffy's "sexy dance".
Some Assembly Required is Buffy's obligatory Frankenstein episode. Science geek Chris has resurrected his recently deceased brother Daryl, but big bro yearns for more than just a second chance at life - he wants a girlfriend. Chris sets out to find an ideal candidate in order to make this PYT a reality. Kristen, Mike, and Kara compare this "Monster of the Week" episode to I Robot, You Jane. Tune in to find out which is creepier: a romance with a 250 year age difference OR a main character who desperately wants to reanimate a dead girl without having any real motivation to do so.
