* * *

Buffyland begins with a talent show and people being terrible at what their “talent” is. Until a boy named Morgan gets on stage and starts doing a ventriloquism act. He starts off extremely poorly, but then his doll Fats, ohhh I mean Sid, changes voices and starts being more edgy and mean to Morgan. Fats, ohhh I did it again, Sid seems to have a personality of his own and seems to be pushing Morgan around a lot. Buffy and the crew realize something is up when people start dying, and they decide to check it out.

So everyone is starting to fall into place, acting wise, and the characters don’t seem in interact poorly anymore, which is nice to see.

The best part about the episode is the ending, which plays a nice twist and sets things up for a different ending. It’s nice when a story that has been told before, is spiced up with a good, and different, ending. A whole hearted “Nice Job!” to you guys.

The last thing I will say/ask, since when are kids forced into a talent show???? It’s kind of cruel and unusual punishment, don’t you think?

About The Drudgeon

I don't remember my real name or where I came from. All I know is that I'm traped in an underground cave with nothing but a TV, DVD player and a notebook and pen. They keep calling me The Drudgeon, I don't even know what that means. Someone keeps dropping horror movies in and yelling at me to watch them and write about what I watch. Then I eat the DVD and case, because they tell me if I consume the horror I will understand the horror. I think there are three of them. So if you are reading this right now, HELP ME!!!!!!! OUCH!!!! Someone just poked me with a sea urchin attacked to a pool cue, what the fuck is going on?

    That was pretty much Snyder’s great joy in life.
