  • We are led to believe he is at the funeral home and Buffy manages to kill him with very little fight (just once, I would like to see a final battle that takes place more than a couple minutes) only to find out the chosen one was someone completely different and, in thinking they won the day, they actually lost a major battle in their war with the Master

      While not much in terms of action, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode Never Kill a Boy on the First Date turned out to be a good one. I know the message it was trying to send.

      Buffy can’t live the life of a normal teenager because of her secret and the danger of her profession.

      But, it turned out to be a charming episode that made up for the lack of action with


      good old fashioned comedy.

      Buffy wants to date this hunk-like guy (who doesn’t seem to intelligent even though he apparently reads poetry) and is so desperate to go on that date with him, she blows off stopping “the chosen one” from meeting with the Master.

      Of course, that isn’t that easy.

      She gets interrupted on the date and tries to leave him to rescue Giles only to have him tagging along.

      And, somehow manages ...


      • to protect her identity only to find out he’s some sort of freak who gets off on facing death.

        That’s a bit too morbid for me too.

        I did like the trick the show plays when it comes to the chosen one.

        We are led to believe he is at the funeral home and Buffy manages to kill him with very little fight (just once, I would like to see a final battle that

        takes place more than a couple minutes) only to find out the chosen one was someone completely different and, in thinking they won the day, they actually lost a major battle in their war with the Master.

        But, the thing that ends up making this good is the fact, for the first time, we see Buffy really is a typical teenager trying to cope with typical teenaged things while battling evil.

        It adds a lot more depth to her character.
