Goofs

At 24:31, as Willow and Buffy enter Tara's room, there is a mirror to the left of the door. It has a scarf draped over it to prevent it from reflecting things it shouldn't, but the bottom right corner is still exposed and in it you can see glimpses not only of Willow and Buffy but of the crew moving around behind the camera.

Quotes

[Giles and company are researching old magic books]
Riley Finn: These spells, these really work? I mean, can you really "turn your enemies inside out"? Or "learn to excrete gold coins"?
Anya: That one's not so much fun.
Willow Rosenberg: They work, Riley. But they take concentration, being attuned with the forces of the universe.
Xander Harris: Right. You can't just go "librum incendere" and expect...
[Xander's book bursts into flames and he slams it shut, extinguishing it]
Giles: [wearily] Xander, don't speak Latin in front of the books.

The Incredible Jonathan
18 August 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the fantastic Jonathan visits Sunnydale U.C., everybody wants to be with him: the inventor of Internet; lead actor of "The Matrix"; awesome vampire hunter; stunning singer; great author of successful best-sellers; amazing lover. Meanwhile, a weird and powerful long-armed demon also comes to Sunnydale, marked with an unusual signal. When Buffy sees the same signal on Jonathan's shoulder, she feels that something is not right in the reality.

This episode presents a good idea, but the beginning is quite confused. Jonathan appears without a previous introduction, giving the sensation that something is missing. The logical thoughts and behavior of Buffy shows an unusual maturity of the slayer. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Superastro" ("Superstar")
