Episode 3 - The Pack / Angel / I Robot, You Jane (feat. Elizabeth Rambo)

24Mar

She had so much fun talking with me last time, Elizabeth Rambo is back for more! This time around the Professor and I discuss the uncomfortable implications of Xander’s memory after 106, “The Pack,” Angel and Darla finally becoming themselves (perhaps a moment too late in Darla’s case) in 107, “Angel,” and how 108, “I Robot, You Jane” manages to overcome its terribly dated techno-props to be a much better episode than its reputation suggests.

 

Also, what exactly is the Sunnydale High School counseling protocol on cannibalism?

 

Next: Alexander Lester, Teaching Associate in the Department of Popular Culture at Bowling Green State University visits the cemetery to talk about episodes 109, “The Puppet Show” and 110, “Nightmares.”
