THE BUFFYVERSE & THE UNIVERSAL

1. A SUNNYDALE SERMON OVERLOOKED (IN "THE PUPPET SHOW")
The Irony of Snyder's Talent Show & The Scoobies Oedipal Stupidity



A MINOR TALE not in the major arc

of Buffy history -- except one point.

A "Nazi" principal (who once played "Quark")

is introduced into Joss Whedon's joint.


Rejecting "understanding" out of hand,

he said that "discipline is "what kids need."

The irony -- that Snyder would demand

participation in what best would breed . . .


. . . the thing he's just dismissed . . . with his main goal.

A TALENT SHOW -- where art's hard discipline

is matched with understanding your own soul.

He thinks they're enemies. But they're blood kin.


That "Oedipus" with Scoobies was a scream.

But sad: These heroes chose "their least" to team.


you speak
