Storyline

Sunnydale is alive with the sound of music as a mysterious force causes everyone in town to burst into full musical numbers, revealing their innermost secrets as they do. But some townsfolk are dancing so much that they simply burst into flames, and it becomes clear that maybe living in a musical isn't so great after all. Written by Alex

Two of the show's writers, David Fury and Marti Noxon, have small singing parts. Fury can be seen singing "They Got the Mustard Out" outside the magic shop when Buffy checks to see if other people are singing. Noxon sings about a parking ticket ("I think that hydrant wasn't there") while Giles, Xander, and Anya are walking on the street after Xander and Anya's duet. See more »

The best musical extravaganza
28 July 2017 | by jamarianaSee all my reviews

"Once More with Feeling" is one of the best episodes of modern television, period - musical or not, sci-fi show or not, part of the mediocre season 6 of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" or not. I am in love with this episode. When I first saw it, I was mesmerised. I happen to like a lot of the songs too, especially Giles' 'Standing', which was beautifully touching and had really great lyrics. Joss Whedon created a masterpiece from this episode with his amazing songwriting skills (unexpected) and a decent story to go along with the fantastic musical episode. Every show should have a musical episode, but they are VERY risky. When "Oz" did it, it was fabulous as well, but understandably it is an easy thing to mess up. This episode should be revered, praised, and remembered for all time as one of the greatest things to ever grace the television screen. 10/10, Bravo!
