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

Better than I could put it in words; this episode is a television milestone.
11 August 2011 | by tv_is_my_parentSee all my reviews

I can't understand what kind of a genius Joss Whedon. He created this songs that are true to the characters, some revealing secrets and emotions, some are just fun, some are bittersweet.

Once More, With Feeling is an extra-ordinary episode that you won't see everyday in television. This type of episodes are not to be missed. After watching it for the second time, I love it even more.

Sadly, with this episode BtVS's creativity peak episodes are completed, at least in my opinion. Sure there are some brilliant episodes ahead but this episodes one of the show's climax.

I know there are still people who think Buffy is silly teen vampire show, I was one of them, but just get over your prejudgment and give this show a try, because your missing some of television's best episodes. 10/10.
