In this show we talk all about Buffy Season 2 Episode 02: Go Fish; Wherein there are fish monsters and also unexpected lessons in sexual victimhood. This episode does so much to move Buffy forward as a show and as our characters move into their respective positions for next season. It also works to brilliantly flip the gender narrative and reveal some very interesting work of social commentary and brilliant storytelling. It also does heavy work in the realm of questioning and studying exceptionalism.
We also see the influence of the 50s still heavily playing as a hangover from the last episode, bringing in not only forward movements into Angel’s past, but also the influence of man trying to overcome and exploit the supernatural and the misunderstood through the genetic experiments. In this episode, all of our characters begin to hit their stride and move into places that they will occupy as we move into the third season. Xander hits his stride, Cordy is brave, Willow seems torn in her affections (and playing card choices), and Jonathan is moving into a more aggressive stance through continued bullying.
It’s a long episode and we cover a lot. Please enjoy! As always thank you so much for listening. Please make sure to like us on Facebook, visit our website, and feel free to email us any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
