One thought on “Episode 50: Amends

  1. Hey there! Just wanted to let you both know I’m still listening and enjoying! I’ve been distracted by some other stuff recently, but I just listened to Amends and really appreciated your discussion. I also have some issues with The First, and I think the whole way it is depicted here, especially when Buffy shuts it down by essentially telling it to shut up after listening it to go on and on about how evil it is, kind of shows why it doesn’t work as a main villain in season 7. I get the concept and why they wanted to do it, especially for the final season, but there’s too much pontificating about good and evil and not enough actual story or action. Something like that works a little better on Angel, because the tone of the show is different (side-note: I actually watched Angel when I was in my early 20s, which it turns out was the perfect time for me because I was reading about philosophy/going through a kind of crisis of faith at that time anyway, so Angel’s whole arc on that show, especially in season 2 hit me differently then than it probably would now. Actually, on Angel, Faith’s arc might be my favorite). I actually never had big feelings on Amends either way. I was kind of surprised when I realized it had a bit of a bad reputation in fandom, especially for the “surprise” snow at the end. I didn’t think it was the best episode, certainly, but I don’t think I was personally bothered by it. That said, I was just watching to watch, and not looking at it from much of a critical perspective. I think I didn’t really start actively disliking any episodes until season 4.
