Trite and Self-Indulgent
Have you seen the entire Buffy series? Are you able to form a critical opinion on your own? Then pass on this podcast. Here it's two guys who haven't even seen the Buffy episodes lately summarizing every one... and forgetting/mistaking names and plot points as they go. Worse, these guys aren't even hardcore fans it seems... they seem to dislike basically every single non-Joss episode. They even dislike some by the man himself! If you want some sort of critical thought or intelligent analysis, look elsewhere... this is just summarizing the basic plot points with two guys complaining about it. I applaud these guys for going for a specialized Buffy podcast, but the fact is that it breaks down to them just pushing their opinions on the show... and that is just self-indulgent and offers little to the listener. For a Buffy podcast done right, check out Buffycast... intelligent and insightful, it looks beyond the surface of the episodes. It acts as a supplement to the show, not just a poorly done review of it... something this Buffcast should strive for.
Have you seen the episodes?
Granted, I've only listened to their season 3 podcast, but come on, it seems like just about any Buffy fan could do a job this good, or better. These two barely go above and beyond just basic episode summaries, and even then it seems more like they're reading off an episode guide rather than remembering the actual episodes. I suppose if I were going to publish a podcast, I might take the time to give the episodes another watch a do a bit of research so I'm not stuck forgetting major plot points and character names. Buffy deserves better.
Hmmmm.... regular show is better
This is not a well researched podcast. I understand that they guys do watch the whole season again (and take notes) right before making the podcast. This is why there is such a long time between episodes. However, with that information you would think they would give a more accurate review. I listened to the first 2 season overviews and tried to listen to the 3rd but I just could not finish it. They had so many mistakes during it that I was starting to get mad. So I just stoped listening. However, I really enjoy their regular show that they put out. It has a lot of wit to it. I think they really need to think strongly before starting their Angel Cast. They need to do some vast impovements to the Buffcast if they want me to listen the their Angel Cast.
