Buffy Episodes One and Two: Welcome to the Hellmouth & The Harvest

Welcome to the Hellmouth and The Harvest: Wherein we meet Buffy, Slayer of the Vampires

In this, our first official episode, we begin our discussion of how the cast of Buffy not only tells us the story of Buffy and her friends, but also the metaphorical rolls of the Scoobies as Buffy's internal workings and separate parts. (Giles = mind, Willow = spirit, and Xander = heart). We also discuss visual cues, costume as storytelling, and other things.
