    I have no idea what it’s going to be. Therefore I will definitely give it a try.

    It might be terrible, but they seem to get on well and as long as they talk about something interesting, I think it could be entertaining. But we shall see

    He even made a joke about that in the trailer. I think he must be well aware of his reputation and is playing upto it

    It won't do his health or his creativity any good in the long run.

    Not bad, but I feel he gets a tad distracted in his videos these days trying to be 'clever' and imo It doesn't always work.

    Enjoyable video. Glad he likes Dawn, because I like Dawn. Love his Spike Don't Sparkle t-shirt. As for the review, I don't think he really says a lot about the episode, and certainly not in much depth. He does warn us that he won't say much, so I guess I can't be too critical.

    Honestly, I really hate his no-spoiler policy. Not only is this show old as hell, but I really doubt that there are very many people who would watch it for the first time and bother to go on YouTube and watch detailed reviews on each and every episode immediately after watching said ep. I mean, I'm sure they exist, of course, but I doubt they make up a large amount of people. So what's the point? It seems that the majority of the people who watch and subscribe to POTN's videos are hardcore BtVS/AtS fans who have seen every episode. And it's taking him foreverrr to finish the series, so any first-time watcher who *does* watch his videos would either have to pause their watching of the show to wait for his videos to catch up or just forget about his vids entirely and move on.

    There's so much foreshadowing and character arc setup in each episode and to ignore those things, just for the sake of keeping it spoiler-free, you end up missing out on layers of the show that are necessary to explore for comprehensive reviews like these.

    I totally agree.

    It seems like a bizarre decision but I wonder if it had to do with the fact that he was interacting with other reactors like ASR who wouldn't be able to watch and support him if he discussed future episodes? It really does hamper his ability to actually discuss the series fully, though. I also could've sworn that in his earlier reviews he regularly showed future scenes and clips when discussing an episode

    I still maintain that he's pretty overrated. They're nothing more then glorified recaps these days and they rarely say anything new. Granted, it's hard to say much new about a 20 + year old series but I really don't get what the fuss is all about.

    Yeah, I was actually a fan of his a few years back but the lack of originality, the infrequency of his postings, along with the gratuitous ass-kissing from his fanbase ended up turning me off. I still consider his videos overall well-made though and I'll watch them simply because I really, really love watching video essays on my favorite shows/movies and the lack of video essays concerning Buffy on YouTube saddens me. The only non-POTN video essays on BtVS I've seen on YouTube was one about what makes a "Hush" a great episode and another about the evolution of Buffy's hair (which was way more interesting than one would expect it to be, LOL).

    Oddly enough I have a friend watching through the first time who hates spoilers - she watched POTN after each episode. It seemed to give her context. She's starting season 6, so no more POTN for her.
    Can we agree that the writers made everyone do and say everything with a thought to getting good ratings and being renewed. This includes everything we love as well as everything we hate.

    He is answering fan questions about himself - not Buffy -. I am really happy for him his YouTube channel is such a success that he has fans and gives interviews. But it's nothing I am personally interested in.

    Does anyone know why he does these 'drunk' live streams?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aV-...eature=em-lbrm

    He's done these drunk re watch streams before and I always find them to be terribly embarrassing viewing. I mean none of the participants come off particularly well so why demean yourself this way?

    I've never watched them. I think he does them as requests from Patreon sponsors maybe? Or he just thinks they're funny.

    Well - that's 60 seconds of my life I'll never get back. I think my internet's broken - I can only see boobies (in almost every sense of the word).
