Doomed S4 E11 (Buffy and the Art of Story)

Buffy and the Art of Story podcast coverThis week on Buffy and the Art of Story – Doomed (Season 4 Episode 11 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), where Buffy faces another Apocalypse and Riley makes his case. This podcast episode looks at:

(1) how coincidences affect plot;

(2) similarities to The Zeppo, a Xander-centric episode;

(3) a super strong Story Spark but a Midpoint that lacks power; and

(4) a well structured Spike subplot with lots of momentum

Spoiler-free, except at the end (with plenty of warning).
