Buffy Episode 1.10 Nightmares

In today's episode we discuss Buffy Season 1 Episode 10: Nightmares; Where We Get A Shitload of Foreshadowing Via Waking Nightmares. We weren't feeling exceptionally well in the recording of this episode due to Rocky Horror Show acquired flu, so please excuse any awkward cuts and occasional coughing fits. 

In this episode we do indeed visit much foreshadowing, as well as begin exploring a newly discovered visual language in color and costuming choice in Buffy (red). We also explore the nature of fear and facing your fear in the Buffyverse, discuss our own fears a bit, and wax poetic about several off-topic subjects. 

And for your listening enjoyment, Creepy Doll by Jonathan Coulton.
