Buz's 'Death Day'
15 June 2008 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Surprisingly eerie episode detailing a psychic named Brycie (Smith) who foresees Tod killing Buz. Smith in her stylish short haircut, make up, and thin figure looks almost like a 60's fashion model here. Her date with Tod has a very distinctive atmosphere as it features them walking around outside at night while she tells him of her spooky visions and it is coupled with some eerie music and interesting camera work. Her relationship with her father (Bickel), who makes it a life mission to debunk psychics, is interesting as is the revelation at the end to the deep dark secret that they both share.

The fire filled finale is pretty impressive and frighteningly realistic as actress Lu Leonard literally has her clothes catch on fire. The story also has a unique structure as it starts out right away on a dark and stormy night with the foretold incident about to happen and then cuts away to show how it all started.

The only negative to this episode is Milner's overwrought performance at becoming much too unhinged as Smith's frightening visions seem to start happening. This is fortunately balanced by Buz's very laid back attitude about the whole thing. He even has an amusing conversation with Tod where he talks about his presumed upcoming 'death day' and states that if someone is going to kill him he wouldn't want it to be anyone else but his friend doing the honors. He even continues to lament how it is unfortunate that people aren't informed of their 'death day' in advance so they could celebrate it every year along with their birthdays.

Grade: B+
