Storyline

Andrew creates a documentary called "Buffy, Slayer of the Vampyres", a record of the current situation in Sunnydale to show to future generations. He manages to capture many important moments, and to annoy almost everyone in the house. But Buffy needs to tear him away from his filmmaking because the Seal of Danzalthar is active and Andrew may hold the key to closing it before it destroys the town. Written by Alex

Quotes

[first lines]
Andrew Wells: [to camera] Oh, hello, there, gentle viewers. You caught me catching up on an old favorite. It's wonderful to get lost in a story, isn't it? Adventure and heroics and discovery: don't they just take you away? Come with me now, if you will, gentle viewers. Join me on a new voyage of the mind. A little tale I like to call: Buffy, Slayer of the Vampyrs.

Extreme highs and extreme lows
12 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For me this episode has some extremely good moments and also some extremely poor ones. This mainly works out as first three quarters = bad, last quarter = good.

As a character, Andrew provides some quality one liners and good comic relief but a whole episode focused on him just goes WAY too far. Buffy works best in it's darker moments that include some moments of humour, and not entire episodes set out for humour that include some darker moments. The entire video taping thing is just annoying, and takes ages to go anywhere. For the first ten minutes I got incredibly bored watching him just filming anything and everything, and the 'Andrew's imagination' sequences are cheesy and frankly just bad. Spike playing up to the camera is also a hideous moment for me that doesn't reflect Spike's actual character - he would NEVER have done that.

On the more positive side, once all the silly childish humour and annoying bits are over we're treated to a truly brilliant sequence. Buffy threatening to stab Andrew so that he'll admit what he really did and cry onto the seal to... er... seal it is one of my high points of the series. I didn't realise what was happening and was very sceptical of this dark moment until i realised the overall plan.

My episode highlight is Anya saying to Andrew: "why don't you just come in here to masturbate like everyone else"
