Starved for cash, Buffy gets a job in a fast food restaurant where the weird manager and high turnover of employees has her more than a little suspicious.

Meanwhile, Willow continues to struggle with magic, and one of Anya's oldest friends stops by for a visit. Written by Alex

Apodictic fast food
1 June 2008 | by (Milano, Italia) – See all my reviews

That's not the best episode of Buffy, not even a very good one, but it's apodictic! That means that theories shown are not required to give legal proofs, but just common sense evidence! In this case, that fast food restaurants are giving customers unhealthy food. Maybe the burgers are not made by human flesh, dogs', cats' or rats' meat (but I've read that just Burger King signed a protocol about that), but it's unhealthy anyway! A guy made an interesting documentary about it! So stay away from McDonald and such like Hell! Anyway, the story of the episode is following the high and low trace of sixth season of "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer": Buffy very vulnerable (and in this case very naughty) in her relationship with Spike and Willow in crisis of abstinence from omnipotence.
