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.

Storyteller? I think not. Storykiller is more like it., 11 August 2010
Author: s k from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Pardoy of Alistair Cooke's "Masterpiece Theatre".

And as another reviewer already pointed out...the funniest line was at the very beginning...when Anya comes into the bathroom where Andrew is filming himself...and she says to him: "For G-d's sakes, Andrew. You've been in here for 30 minutes. What are you doing?" Andrew: "Entertaining and educating". Anya: "Why can't you just masturbate like the rest of us?" (The more I watch this series...the more I like Anya!!!)

There's filler. And then there's filler. And then there's "Storyteller".

On a scale of one to ten...where 10 is the best..."Storyteller" would be less than 1. It's the equivalent of the faint residue that might still be there after you clean your microwave after exploding a marshmallow inside it -- just for fun. The end (which, admittedly, is better than the other 40 minutes of this burner) clearly does not redeem the rest of this mess.

Xander and Anya go for a roll in the hay after opening up some feelings during Andrew's interview. But then they're not quite sure where to go from there.

Jonathan's blood helped to open the Seal of the Hellmouth. Andrew's tears helped to seal it. Great.
