Buffy Rewatch – Reptile Boy

First of all, I LOVE CORDY. Cordelia’s fake laugh is hysterical. And then when she says “I respect you too much to be dishonest” re: Buffy’s hair and clothes. EXCELLENT. And of course the scene where she lays out all the ground rules for Buffy coming with her to the party is fabulous. Then in the end, Cordy realizes that she’s much rather hang around high school boys whom she can control than ~cool~ college boys. I LOVE YOU, CORDY.

The opening scene is all sorts of adorable. I like that we get instances of Buffy, Willow, and Xander hanging out in a non-slaying capacity. It makes the whole world feel a bit more real, like things are still happening, even when we aren’t watching.

For most of time I just can’t decide whether I dislike “I, Robot…You, Jane” more or ”Inca Mummy Girl”. I usually just skip this episode as its just plain hard to rewatch.
At its essence, the episode is decent. You have parallels to Buffy/Angel, you have a source of Xander’s dislike of Angel for the rest of the show and you have introduction of Oz, one of the best BTVS characters ever.
The problem with the episode? The Plot-of-The-Week is full of cultural stereotypes and paranoia in similar fashion to “I, Robot…You, Jane” and a lot of what is explored in episode is just a re-tread to what already has been explored.

Yeeeeeeeeeeah. Not the best episode out there, for sure. I definitely have issues with the way Xander treats a male foreign exchange student staying with Buffy versus the way he acts when she turns out to be female. I do, however, like that he’s willing to give that up for Willow, even if he’s not in love with her.
