Buffy Discussion – “Him” (rerun)

The UPN site has the title Selfless up, but the description of Him. They showed Selfless last week, so I’m assuming they will be rebroadcasting the episode we first discussed here.

    Reruns!
    What is it with American television? Showing reruns in the middle of a season? I’d say they were waiting for Angel to catch up so they don’t hit the end of the season too soon, but that would imply inter-network cooperation which seems unlikely.

      Since Faith will move from Angel to Buffy in a few weeks, this is possible. (The WB has said they will permit cross-overs on the proviso that this is Buffy’s final season.) The main reason for it is that they want the new and/or significant epsiodes to be aired during ratings sweeps in November, February, and May.

        On A Similar Note, Willow’s On Next Week’s Angel. How’s That Going To Fit In, Since She Didn’t Leave At The End Of Last Weeks, And Buffy’s In ReRuns Until May?

          Mutant Enemy often writes the large blocks of reruns as though time still passed for the characters, but nothing happened that was worth mentioning. She might have figured out something was up and come running when Angelus called Dawn and hung up.

            Wesley might not have had false ID handy and had to sign in at the prison with his real name, thus letting the Sunnydale crew know that Angel Investigations had something to do with Faith’s escape. Either that, or they’re simply going to call the most powerful witch they know for some help…I’m not picky as long as we get some confident, powerful Willow action. I know she’s afraid of going evil again but I’m a little tired of this regression into “wimpy” Willow after she had come so far.

              Somebody’s missing Dominatrix Willow ;- )
