Storyline

Sunnydale is alive with the sound of music as a mysterious force causes everyone in town to burst into full musical numbers, revealing their innermost secrets as they do. But some townsfolk are dancing so much that they simply burst into flames, and it becomes clear that maybe living in a musical isn't so great after all. Written by Alex

I LOVE this episode.
21 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Personally i adore this episode of Buffy! I never really watched a lot of Buffy when it was on TV, to me it was just one of those shows that i watched if i found it when i was channel hopping but i must admit for a no-brainer teen TV show it was pretty good if you just wanted to switch off and let TV rot your brain for half an hour. (You've all done it!) I like this episode because although some of the cast can't sing fantastically, the songs are catchy and well-written and the overall episode leaves you with that feel-good feeling that any good musical does! (And a tiny bit of jealousy! - No Sarah Michelle Gellar, he's my Spike! lol!) Definitely worth watching over and over - hehe! i know all the words! (I'm a geek aren't i? lol!) Watch it, it's great!
