tumblr_inline_mjrx19DdQv1qz4rgp

  • 1:55 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjrxk6Gu091qz4rgp

I see Willow thought Xander was getting lonely in the World’s Ugliest Shirt competition and decided to throw her hat into the ring

  • 1:58 AM, 3/16/13

whoa, there is some mad sexual tension between Giles and this computer sciences lady

tumblr_inline_mjrxn9asHD1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjrxnleL1w1qz4rgp

it’s the age old tale of old vs new

so much hostility and barely-disguised lust

this is like those Mac vs PC commercials all over again

  • 2:01 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjrxrzkZQZ1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjry971MTa1qz4rgp

“IT’S THE 90’S

  • 2:10 AM, 3/16/13

oh my god, Willow and Buffy are talking about how Willow was online last night which was why Buffy couldn’t call her

REMEMBER DIAL-UP GUYS

SHE’S SUCH A NORMAL

  • 2:14 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjryiwa3Q91qz4rgp

  • 2:22 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjryruaRR21qz4rgp

  • 2:25 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjrytmZAna1qz4rgp

no girl likes having your sweaty palm slammed over their eyes, buddy

  • 2:27 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjryvxYGDF1qz4rgp

Xander, you can’t be all BUFFY BUFFY BUFFY and then as soon as Willow likes someone, get all jealous

don’t be a douchecanoe

  • 2:30 AM, 3/16/13

Willow’s getting in deep with this Malcolm dude

I SMELL A LIFETIME MOVIE IN THE MAKING

  • 2:40 AM, 3/16/13

4chan’s looking angry

tumblr_inline_mjrzfl4FTh1qz4rgp

you don’t want anonymous on your ass, Buffy

  • 2:42, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjrzl5bZ2x1qz4rgp

404 errors used to be intense

  • 2:45 AM, 3/16/13

oh my god

tumblr_inline_mjrzqvi7XU1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjrzr4FgDi1qz4rgp

JUST MAKE OUT ALREADY

  • 2:48 AM, 3/16/13

this isn’t Skype, Willow

tumblr_inline_mjrztuPWo21qz4rgp

you don’t need to speak out the words as you type them

  • 2:50 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjrzz0l7kJ1qz4rgp

Giles just 5000% blew her off and I think she digs it

  • 2:53 AM, 3/16/13

oh shit

tumblr_inline_mjs04xIUgJ1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjs05hfJK41qz4rgp

I think the computer demon is gonna make Ash/Dave kill himself

  • 2:55 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjs095Ble31qz4rgp

4CHAN

tumblr_inline_mjs0n7LKBE1qz4rgp

IF YOU HURT WILLOW I AM GOING TO KILL YOU, 4CHAN

tumblr_inline_mjs0ucynxT1qz4rgp

computer lady knows all the magic shit!

tumblr_inline_mjs0tzR2rI1qz4rgp

giles likey

  • 3:10 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjs0x4NfBm1qz4rgp

Giles, for once you are standing a respectable distance behind someone and not looming when you should actually be getting your mack on

  • 3:15 AM, 3/16/13

AUGH WILLOW

tumblr_inline_mjs10p2yqk1qz4rgp

YOUR INTERNET BOYFRIEND IS SHREDDER

tumblr_inline_mjs11dGUwz1qz4rgp

  • 3:18 AM, 3/16/13

oh willow

tumblr_inline_mjs30yyooI1qz4rgp

all the good ones are gay, taken, or turn out to be ancient robot demons you accidentally released from a book prison

tumblr_inline_mjs324g0w61qz4rgp

  • 3:20 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjs38ndZ9t1qz4rgp

OH YEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH!

  • 3:23 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjs3c1ul1b1qz4rgp

I think I watch too much Doctor Who because this shot doesn’t seem even remotely weird

  • 3:26 AM, 3/16/13

make your move Giles

tumblr_inline_mjs3dycy0b1qz4rgp

  • 3:28 AM, 3/16/12

tumblr_inline_mjs3fkeWdg1qz4rgp

giles is super good at finding jewelry

  • 3:30 AM, 3/16/13

Giles: “Well, I don’t dangle a corkscrew from my ear.”

Computer lady: “That’s not where I dangle it.”

WHOA WHOA WHOA

IS SHE SAYING SHE WEARS DANGLY EARRINGS ON HER VAGINA?!

  • 3:35 AM, 3/16/13

Buffy: “Let’s face it – none of us are ever going to have a happy, normal relationship!”

Xander: “We’re doomed!”

tumblr_inline_mjs3qspdYD1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjs3r2INIu1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjs3rpk2lD1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjs3t3JmZC1qz4rgp

this feels an awful lot like foreshadowing

  • 3:40 AM, 3/16/13

tumblr_inline_mjs41doP001qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjs41iqn5r1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjs42dlfGa1qz4rgp

why is there always a puppet episode


Episode 9: The Puppet Show

  • 8:00 PM, 3/19/13

imma gonna go ahead and liveblog this episode because it looks like it revolves around Xander and puppets and I could use something stupid right now

  • 8:02 PM, 3/19/13

huh

so already there is this creepy dude’s voice narrating over this

tumblr_inline_mjw8es9Fu11qz4rgp (1)

  • 8:05 PM, 3/19/13

okay, so this is a HIGH SCHOOL talent show and there are more than two people performing?

I call bullshit

  • 8:08 PM, 3/19/13

I know it’s early to say this…

tumblr_inline_mjw8j5cf301qz4rgp

but fuck that puppet

no

  • 8:10 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjw8mbbZ3j1qz4rgp

not to be a little miss questioning-of-plot-points, but why exactly is giles of all people running the talent show

I highly doubt there are gonna be books in this talent show, Giles

this isn’t your scene

what are you doing

  • 8:15 PM, 3/19/13

whoa, Cordelia just straight-up William Hung-ed it on stage

that’s still a fresh reference, right?

tumblr_inline_mjw907vCbn1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjw90eF2Zh1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjw90nClZP1qz4rgp

 

tumblr_inline_mjw90xUxAj1qz4rgp

 

tumblr_inline_mjw93erKK41qz4rgp

 

tumblr_inline_mjw93l4zEZ1qz4rgp

i am so old

  • 8:18 PM, 3/19/13

whoa, this new principal is a total dickwad

he just openly was like “the last principal was a joke, he was eaten”

YEAH, THAT’S NOT A METAPHOR, GUY

HE WAS LITERALLY EATEN

TOO SOON, ASSHOLE

tumblr_mjj0uw8Wiv1qzhh8to1_500

  • 8:20 PM, 3/19/13

“I think dummies are cute. You don’t?”

NO, WILLOW

NO ONE THINKS DUMMIES ARE CUTE

UNLESS THEY’RE A SERIAL KILLER

AND EVEN THEN THEIR OPINIONS ARE SUSPECT

  • 8:24 PM, 3/19/13

dude

tumblr_inline_mjw9gjlkuD1qz4rgp

YOU ARE NOT EVEN REMOTELY TRYING TO NOT MOVE YOUR MOUTH

  • 8:28 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjw9jicYMY1qz4rgp

oop

the backlit murder filter is on

it was nice knowing you, random ballerina highschooler

  • 8:30 PM, 3/19/13

SOME DEMON VOICE JUST SAID “I WILL BE FLESH” AND THE BALLERINA SCREAMED

WHAT THE FUCK, SHOW

  • 8:33 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjw9p5kzvJ1qz4rgp

Willow. Baby.

Again with the FUCKING PATTERNS

  • 8:35 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjw9s6s2g01qz4rgp

“Once you go wood, nothing’s as good!”

……………………………..

tumblr_inline_mjw9zwciuz1qz4rgp

  • 8:37 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwa4jqKAh1qz4rgp

okay, I know a very serious story line is developing, dummies killing people, blah blah blah

but what the fuck is on Xander’s shirt

tumblr_inline_mjwa5rZ6x51qz4rgp

  • 8:39 PM, 3/19/13

man, it’s nice of Carrot Top to make a cameo

tumblr_inline_mjwaadEOpx1qz4rgp

  • 8:45 PM, 3/19/13

nooooooope

tumblr_inline_mjwadqeKIF1qz4rgp

super not liking this dummy, guys

super

not

liking

  • 8:47 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwahoGuK31qz4rgp

“DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT, ME AND MY PUPPET JUST YELL AT EACH OTHER ALL THE TIME

MY THERAPIST SAID IT’S TOTALLY NORMAL”

tumblr_inline_mjwalc2zIQ1qz4rgp

“………………said?”

tumblr_inline_mjwamxFCmk1qz4rgp

“DID I SAY SAID? I MEANT SAYS. SHE’S TOTALLY NOT MURDERED OR ANYTHING”

  • 8:50 PM, 3/19/13

mmmmmm, giles

tumblr_inline_mjwarwFRV61qz4rgp

I love when you wear cardigans and get all bossy

  • 8:55 PM, 3/19/13

nooooo, Buffy

tumblr_inline_mjwaun4u4n1qz4rgp

YOU’RE ON PUPPETCAM, GIRL

  • 8:56 PM, 3/19/13

uhg, new principal is the worst

he’s all “blah blah blah, rules rules rules, I hate murder, blah”

what a square

  • 8:59 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwb10GqT91qz4rgp

and here we are on another episode of Crazy People Arguing With Puppets Theater

  • 9:02 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwb5yTlSs1qz4rgp

NO, SHOW

FUCK YOU

  • 9:05 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwbc9rD5H1qz4rgp

ILLUSIONS!

  • 9:08 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwbkkfL2H1qz4rgp

that’s it

I officially hate this fucking puppet

  • 9:10 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwbmgO1oA1qz4rgp

WHO THE HELL BRINGS THEIR DUMMY TO CLASS?

HAVE SOME COMMON COURTESY AND LEAVE YOUR GODDAMN NIGHTMARE FUEL IN YOUR LOCKER

  • 9:14 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwbrg1sR71qz4rgp

okay lady, I know you’re probably well-meaning

but this kid is obviously having a mental breakdown because you took his fucking puppet away for like a half an hour

tumblr_inline_mjwbt9HuvK1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjwbtuZlfG1qz4rgp

BE MORE CONCERNED

tumblr_inline_mjwbv23m6y1qz4rgp

  • 9:20 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwbxuUACi1qz4rgp

oh honey, your life is like a How-To guide on making terrible decisions

  • 9:22 PM, 3/19/13

and Xander CONTINUES TO ANTAGONIZE THE PUPPET

I know they’re just responding to him being annoying, but their faces really do capture how I feel at the moment

tumblr_inline_mjwc11t9Ql1qz4rgp

  • 9:25 PM, 3/19/13

oh my god

tumblr_inline_mjwc4jJrQk1qz4rgp

YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO WATCH THE PUPPET, XANDER

YET YOU IMMEDIATELY LEFT HIM ALONE

YOU LITERALLY HAD ONE JOB

  • 9:29 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwcaxRkys1qz4rgp

“AH, PRINCIPAL SATAN!”

tumblr_inline_mjwcbi3gSA1qz4rgp

tumblr_inline_mjwcbsSOrg1qz4rgp

“I mean… Snyder”

  • 9:33 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwcfhMxWX1qz4rgp

okay, I know you got scared about the dummy disappearing, but like

you know it was a puppet, not a mouse

right

  • 9:35 PM, 3/19/13

well, the puppet demon just stepped shit up by dropping an actual chandelier on Buffy

tumblr_inline_mjwckcO04S1qz4rgp

this is what happens when you don’t do your fucking job, xander

  • 9:40 PM, 3/19/13

wait

the dummy is a regular human who hunts demons but is trapped as a dummy

WAIT

tumblr_inline_mjwcrmblI21qz4rgp

WHAT

  • 9:42 PM, 3/19/13

Okay, the dummy just lost any sympathy points for being a trapped demon hunter by totally perving on Buffy

tumblr_inline_mjwcu0V0Hq1qz4rgp

bro, I get you’ve been stuck as dummy but she is in HIGH SCHOOL, MAN

  • 9:46 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwcxl99QC1qz4rgp

watching giles try to be comforting is like watching a dog try to rollerskate

  • 9:50 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwd14v1PA1qz4rgp

so Buffy’s just chillaxing with this demon-hunter-turned-puppet, shooting the shit about killing stuff and banging chicks back in the 30’s

I watch both Doctor Who and Supernatural on a regular basis and even I think this is surreal

  • 9:52 PM, 3/19/13

this feels weirdly racist…

but I still don’t trust that fucking puppet

  • 9:55 PM, 3/19/13

OH MY GOD

I THINK PRINCIPAL SATAN IS ACTUALLY PRINCIPAL SATAN

  • 9:58 PM, 3/19/13

Whoa, crazypants argues-with-puppets Jackson apparently WASN’T crazy and was all twitchy and weird because he had brain cancer

THIS EPISODE KEEPS PULLING 6TH-SENSE LEVEL TWISTS ON ME

IT’S HURTING MY BRAINHOLE

  • 10:01 PM, 3/19/13

OH SHIT

THE ACTUAL DEMON IS THE MOUTH-BREATHING ILLUSIONIST

tumblr_inline_mjwdlcmdH81qz4rgp

ANOTHER TWIST

  • 10:05 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwdn1Pigf1qz4rgp

so this demon chose giles because I guess his brain is the tastiest since he’s so smart

which is ironic because in order to GET that brain, giles is going to have to willingly put his head in this obviously sharp guillotine

tumblr_inline_mjwdqsU9KM1qz4rgp

thus making him the dumbest man alive

  • 10:10 PM, 3/19/13

tumblr_inline_mjwdw4E0fS1qz4rgp

ILLUUUUUUSSIONS!

  • 10:17 Pm, 3/19/13

ok so um…

the demon turned out to be the magician kidtumblr_inline_mjwdzdoGm61qz4rgp

and the dummy had to… stab…. the demon’s heart?

tumblr_inline_mjwe282VJj1qz4rgp

but then he died. for real.

and now

tumblr_inline_mjwe83oGHp1qz4rgp

um

tumblr_inline_mjwe2vaHGu1qz4rgp

okay

tumblr_inline_mjwe8iWmx51qz4rgp

uh

this show is really weird

(next week on buffy)
