Synopsis: Buffy has the roommate from Hell, but all of her friends think she is crazy.
Review: I am ashamed to say it because this episode was so ridiculous, but I kind of enjoyed watching it. The goofy, over-the-top nature of it made it all the more fun to watch. Just ignore that it was campy and did not have any real point.
The hard-hitting drama of Buffy was reduced to a plot more suited to a sitcom (albeit a sitcom with supernatural leanings). This plot probably would have worked better in a half hour format also. It felt stretched at an hour. This episode would have worked better also if we even sort of liked Buffy's roommate. I disliked her from the moment she appeared in the first episode. I was hoping if she was not a monster that she would get eaten by a monster.
Finally Buffy and Willow are roommates, which makes a lot of sense. This campy episode endeared itself to me (maybe because I remember my first roommate). I give it a 6 out of 10.
