This week on Buffy and the Art of Story – Fear Itself (Season 4 Episode 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), where Buffy and her friends face their fears in a haunted house. This podcast episode looks at:
(1) Buffy’s Post-Parker depression – does it make her angry?
(2) whether the fears fit the characters;
(3) slow pace, unclear plot turns, and repetition;
(4) is there enough story here for a full episode?
Spoiler-free, except at the end (with plenty of warning).
