Oh it brings back so many memories. It's so strange to NOT be the one having my still beating heart ripped out, stomped on and then...thrown out a 10 story building into a giant pile of glass just for good measure.
It's interesting. And kind of glad that I vowed NEVER to get that emotionally involved/invested in a show ever again because....writers fuck you over. They really do. They'll leave breadcrumbs they'll string you along, making you believe that they really loved and cared for a character.
Then we get S6 and S7 Buffy. Then we get...S3/S4 (and to an extent S5 I don't think it was interesting or had much layers to it that could make me hate it, but it wasn't good...) of ATS....what the...?!
I still contend that the INTENT-slash-meaning behind Chosen was way better than NFA.
( Let's talk Buffy, Angel and finalesCollapse )
This ended up being so much longer than anticipated, I'm so tempted to just skip ahead and watch Chosen. AH...Must. Resist.
I dunno about you despite S6 and S7, I still look back on the show fondly. What could have been for S6, it started out so promising and I think maybe if it weren't for the debacle that was Buffy/Spike gratuitous nakedness, and trying to make Spike into Angel 2.0...the season wouldn't have been half bad. Could Buffy and Spike get close? Could he have become her confidante, absolutely! A lot of it had to do with the fact that Chosen was fairly satisfying - was it great? No...but I think it was enough. Our hero prevails, and she comes out as heroic as ever.
