So, it’s an interesting combination of elements, that has 2 golden hybrids with shorter breed times than regulars. So we’ll look at both of those. First up, Flash + Abyss.

BtVS – Teacher’s Pet / Never Kill a Boy on the First Date

S1.04 – Teacher’s Pet
Written by David Greenwalt
Directed by Bruce Seth Green

First and Last Frames

First and Last Frames of BtVS S1.04

David Greenwalt is a producer on an awful lot of Buffy and a co-creator of Angel. Bruce Seth Green will direct 7 more episodes of Buffy after this one. All in all this is a monster of the week episode, which seems to stray a little too far from “High School is Hell”.

This is the living list, of my rankings, and the  rankings of my youngest 2 children, read more

S1.02 The Harvest

First and Last Frames

WttH/The Harvest

I am combining these 2 episodes together and rating them as one. Partly because of the “to be continued”, but mainly because this is definitely 1 continuous story. I might not do this for all the 2 parters, but it makes no sense to talk about 1 of these episodes without the other.

Not a bad introduction to the characters and read more
