Goofs

At 26:47, when Buffy is talking to Anya about Jonathan, Anya is supposedly reading Jonathan's book "Oh Jonathan." But if you look at the pages of the book, they're blank - there's no writing there. In the next scene, when Buffy takes the book, there's writing on the pages. See more »

Quotes

Xander: Last night. With me. You said "Jonathan".
Anya: It was a moan!
Xander: Fine. You moaned "Jonathan".
Anya: [shaking her head] Uh-uh! It was like, "ahhh-n".
Xander: Maybe it was "Ahh-nathan". Still not fluffin' up the old ego.

The Incredible Jonathan
18 August 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee 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")
