Two of Buffy's devoted followers return to Sunnydale - one episode at a time.
This one was actually my least favourite of the first season and it's only because I hated and still hate Dummies. They are second only to clowns in creepiness. I did love a lot of the humour in this ep though. Like Giles and Cordy, Snyder's introduction and, of course, the hilarious ending scene with the Scoobies trying to recite Oedipus Rex. Great stuff but the Dummy stuff fell flat to me, only because of my own aversion to them.Great stuff, guys. I'm getting excited for when you get to Prophecy Girl. It's one of my favourite episodes of the series.
Dummies freak me the hell out, too. Although I kinda warmed up to Sid a little bit, despite his wood jokes. We get it, you're horny, and you're made out of a substance that is a synonym for boner. Also, Snyder. Snyder, horrid little troll that he is, is the best principal ever. True story.
Wow, am I in fact the weird one in that I'm not freaked out by dummies? I mean, if one started having autonomy and then came at me with a knife, sure I'd be scared. And I still haven't seen the Chuckie movies, but dummies never really scared me.Puppets are cool!
I always found this episode boring. I liked the twist, expcially as it contrasted great with other 90's Dummy Horror like Goosebumps Night of the Living Dummy series, and the older Childs Play series
