The Freshman / Living Conditions
It's the gang's Freshman year at University of California, Sunnydale, and while her friends are quickly acclimating to their new surroundings, our Slayer is overwhelmed. She finds a kindred spirit in Eddie, another lost underclassman. But when Eddie goes missing, Buffy is sure there is foul play afoot. She must battle a gang of Freshman-feeding vampires all by herself. Kristen and Mike reminisce about their own college experiences - from getting lost on campus, to buying books, to overproduced posters, and friends growing apart.
In Living Conditions, Buffy isn't getting along so well with her roommate - Kathy. Her maniacally peppy attitude and persistence into Buffy's personal life proves too much for the Slayer. Even though there are prophetic dreams and glowy-eyed demons to contend with, this all takes a back seat to Buffy's constant ranting against her roomie. Is Buffy losing her grip on reality? Or is Kathy more than just an inconsiderate college Freshman? Kristen and Mike discuss the many uses of "Bachelor Shackles", and share some roommate war stories.
