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

Xander Harris: [practicing a quick-draw with a stake] The quick-draw is about more than speed. It's also about pointing the stake the right way. And, there can be splinter issues. It is a true test of dexterity.
Anya: [re milk carton] Can you open this?
Xander Harris: No, I tear it and it gets all sloshy.

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")
