BUFFERING 3.04: Beauty and the Beasts
In this episode, Buffy finds herself surrounded by all kinds of man-beasts, Faith coins the phrase "kickin the gearshift" (now a timeless classic), and Xander takes a very poorly-timed nap. We also talk to Red McCormick about her experience in working with survivors of domestic violence, and how that intersects with this episode of Buffy. Today we're discussing S3E4: Beauty and the Beasts.
