Earshot… starts with E

I absolutely LOVE season 3.  I think it may be my number one season, but I’ll get back to that in a bit.

One of the most interesting and then controversial episodes of the season was Earshot.  The airing was cancelled initially because at the time, the Columbine shootings happened.  And it would have been in poor taste to air such an episode.  The season finale was also pulled from network and tucked away on a shelf, then finally aired in the Summer, after “enough” time had passed that the two episodes wouldn’t appear tasteless.

I do love Earshot, otherwise.  It’s such an interesting episode in that it deals with Buffy getting this demon power, she can hear people’s thoughts.  It seems cool to being with, until Buffy becomes totally overwhelmed by it to the point where she can hardly function anymore.

In 2006 or 2007, when music vids were the popular thing to do, because video editing is still awesome, I spliced some clips of the Earshot episode together and put a track by Green Day behind it.  And here it is below for you to see.  Enjoy!

  1. Interesting bit of Buffy trivia that I haven’t heard before. I totally understand why the episode was pulled. I didn’t watch Buffy at the time (I know, I know!) but I vividly remember the Columbine shootings. Thanks for sharing! I found your blog from the A to Z challenge.
