How did you like the musical episode? Did you think that any of the regular cast were any good at singing? Who was the best at singing?

I LOVE that episode! I still listen to music from it. It was just amazing, and the plot worked beautifully with this type of show. Few shows could get away with a musical episode without it not feeling right to the show. But with Buffy, it was great -- especially their confusion with their musical outbursts! lol The best singer is Giles (Anthony Head) but I believe he has some musical background so no surprise there. From the others... hmm, I'm not sure. I think Buffy was pretty great, as well as Spike! Also, Anya's fear of bunnies in that one show ("I've Got A Theory") was hilarious! Every single song from that episode was well written with catchy music to go with it. I was very impressed with the flow of the lyrics and from one song to another. Did I mention I love that episode? lol

Another show that had a very good musical episode that preceded the one on Buffy by at least a season or two was Xena: Warrior Princess.

I've never watched "Xena: Warrior Princess", but I probably would have enjoyed a musical episode! What was the plot for that episode? Did it fix with the show? ("Buffy..." did an excellent job of making it "accurate" to the overall plot of the show, rather than just shoving in a musical episode)

Are you kidding?! OMwF was one of my favorite episodes of the show! They captured the intrigue perfectly, shoved some light on the secrets between the characters and was a brilliantly performed musical altogether. They placed it beautifully at that precise moment in the show. From what I know Tony Head and James Marsters have singing carriers so I wasn;t surprised at how well they did. But when i heard Amber Benson i couldn't believe how well she singed!I heard it took them 6 months to make that episode but i believe it was worth it. And though musicals are not so well rated nowadays, i heard the reviews were great. What i didn't like was Sarah Michlelle's singing...Her voice is too thin and scratches ones year , but for a person with no prior experience, she did good. I love "Rest in peace" and "Under your spell" and still listen to them. But as a fovorite voice, i have to say : Tony Head. Very warm and pleasent voice he has.

The musical episodes is one of the best episodes of the series. I don't think it is THE best like a lot of people do, but I'm a huge fan of music and the fact that Joss was able to incorporate the musical elements and still make it work within the plotline was amazing. And most of the cast can sing to at least some extent. It's truly a brilliant episode.

This remains my favorite episode of the entire series! I can't believe how creative Joss Whedon is to come up with the lyrics and the music for this episode and how great it turned out. I think he's is just amazing and love all his shows. I loved Spike's singing the best. He sang with a lot of emotion into his solo song and interjected humor with his lines in "Walk Through the Fire". Giles and Tara were also amazing singers and you could tell they've had some practice. I was disappointed that Willow didn't sing more. I heard that she was super shy about singing and requested not to have to sing too much at all. But it's a shame, because her voice sounded sweet in the couple lines that she had. Still the best Joss Whedon episode out there, even when you take into account all his other shows!
