Warning: this post doesn’t contain specific spoilers for either Buffy The Vampire Slayer or Angel, but it does include all the episode titles. Proceed with caution!

Believe it or not, we’re about to begin season three of Buffy The Vampire Slayer in Dusted. Season three is generally recognized as a high point for the series, and there’s a lot to love and discuss. By the time we hit season four, though, we have a decision to make: how do we handle the introduction of the spin-off series Angel?

We want to preserve, as far as possible, the as-live experience, so we’re going to tackle the episodes in strict chronological order, by original air-date, except:

  • Where doing so splits up a two-part episode with something inessential.
  • Where doing so is obviously against the intent of the producers.
  • Where doing so makes things less fun.

Things are pretty straightforward in across Buffy season four and five, but when Buffy switches to UPN for season six and seven, the timeline gets a little more complicated. So, with that in mind, and remembering that this list may change at any moment, this is what the rest of Dusted looks like:
