Musical Monday: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Once More With Feeling) - Walk Through The Fire (#42).

[Every Monday, I'm going to be counting down my 52 favorite musical numbers from musical movies and TV shows. I might not like the full movie/show, but the number makes the list for various reasons: 1) I have to like the song, 2) the visual of how the number is performed is most likely unique or fun, 3) both song and visual mixes well to create an exciting or powerful number. So let's get to the next on the list.]

This is the first musical number from a TV show that has appeared on the list thus far. I only have a few, but musical episodes are always some of my favorites, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer is no exception (Fun Fact: It was this episode that Darren Lynn Bousman used to talk the studio execs into letting him cast Anthony Stewart Head as the lead in Repo! The Genetic Opera). Anyway, I chose Walk Through The Fire in particular because it's a decent mix of drama and comedy--and because Spike has some really good lines in it. Anyway, that's about all I have to say on it.


  1. A good song from a splendid episode. You leave me curious as to what the other shows are...

  2. Hell. Yes.

    "...I better help her out..."

    "I think this line's mostly filler."

    Joss, I love you.

  3. My favorite song from this episode. Love Spike throughout. "I think this line's mostly filler" is the best!

  4. This is probably one of my top five favourite episodes from the show. It falls just behind the "Hush" episode (all-time fav), and the one where her mother died.

  5. Agree with CS, this is an amazing episode. I also love "Storyteller", the Season 7 episode narrated by Andrew.

    I can never decide on my favourite song. I really like the Xander/Anya duet as well as this one

  6. Definitely an epic piece of cult t.v. history. After this and Dr. Horrible, I'm convinced Joss needs to do more musicals.
