    Huh...don't ask me. If the people who're paid to know these things don't know why should I? I've got my eyes closed and my fingers in my ears in relation to anything to do with Brexit. If I ignore it, it'll (possibly) go away. It's a strategy that worked with the kids....

    Anthony Stewart Head just tweeted this . . .

    @AnthonySHead

    So I watched #TheBody again yesterday and I cried...several times. Quite the most beautiful and extraordinary piece of television. Written and directed by @joss it should have so many awards hanging around its neck - it was and still is groundbreaking x


    I quite agree with him

    Elsewhere, it's been suggested 'Older and Far Away' is based on The Exterminating Angel (El Angel Exterminador, 1962) by Luis Bu˝uel. Wiki confirms it:
    The Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode, "Older and Far Away" (2002), references the movie when a set of characters is unable to leave a house after a party. Initially, the characters seems to be psychologically unable to leave, but later the characters desire to leave but physically cannot, due to a spell.
    Interesting because I think S7s First Date refers us back to Older and Far Away (in the choice that Buffy makes to go to Spike before Xander). In Exterminating Angel, they break down a wall to access a water pipe. In FD, the pipework's on the surface. In O&FA, the demon is in the wall. In Restless, Joyce is in the wall. In Lessons we get this:
    SPIKE: This is my home. I belong here. Always been here. Cheers for stopping by.
    Spike walks away from Buffy. He faces the wall and puts his hands on it.
    SPIKE (To himself) It's in the wall.
    In the Lessons prologue, the potential attempts to escape the Bringers by climbing a pipe. Later in the episode, Buffy defends herself againt the manifest spirits with a pipe.

    As Willow says in Lessons, "Everything's connected".

    I'm just gonna think about Flooded.

    I wouldn't say wiki confirms it. I don't believe it's ever been mentioned from the writers. A group of people stuck in an enclosed space by a spell or other means is pretty standard fare for genre shows and the norm for bottle episodes. Fear Itself also has similar notes.
