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

Trivia

The actors who were the dancing vampires and demon in the opening number played the street sweepers later on, in the scene where Giles, Anya and Xander are discussing the situation. If you look closely you'll realize they're actually performing the same dance routine. See more »

Goofs

During the song "I'm Under Your Spell" Tara's dress has a full gold skirt, but halfway through the song, the skirt has a jagged cut through the hemming and a white underskirt is visible. See more »

Proof that Joss Whedon is a genius...if you still need convincing
25 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, I'll admit I was really sceptical about this episode. I first caught the last 10 minutes of this episode and thought "Oh no, a musical episode, this has got to be it, Buffy has jumped the shark" but having since seen the whole episode in the context of the rest of the series, this episode is pure genius. The songs really moves the story on. Through-out the first few episodes of the 6th season a number of tensions are built up between the characters, feelings and events occur which the characters keep to themselves. All the musical numbers are used as ways for the cast to reveal to each other things they didn't, couldn't, or wouldn't say. Joss wrote all the lyrics and music, with his usual depth, intelligence, and character development, plus the tunes are catch. This is not just a filler episode, its a turning point in the season. Pure class!!
