Buffy the Vampire Slayer: An Oral History of "Hush"

Over the years, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has become the litmus test for feminist drama. But creator Joss Whedon didn't just turn gender roles on their head with his spunky vampire slayer. He flipped, remixed and defied all television conventions, preferring to play with the medium in novel and unexpected ways. While the Season 6 musical episode "Once More with Feeling" might be the most talked-about example of this, "Hush" is arguably the most eloquent.

Sandwiched in the middle of Season 4, "Hush," which aired Dec. 14, 1999, took away the thing that Buffy had become most famous for — the snappy, witty dialogue — forcing the episode to rely solely on musical cues and pantomime to tell the story of yet another murderous monster rampage in Sunnydale.
