I am refusing to read the comics until I know if Buffy and Angel will be together. If Joss doesn’t write it that way, then I won’t read them.
I love re-watching the series. I cry every time at the same episodes. I hate watching The Body. But I also love it. I always watch it with a different perspective from the changes I have gone through. This is my favorite show of all time.
I kinda wish Angel and Cordelia and Giles would’ve come back for Xander and Anya’s wedding.
Buffy and Tom from Reptile Boy would’ve been my OTP if he hadn’t turned out to be insane.
Since I watched the series long after it had ended, I knew that ‘everyone’ hated Dawn. Now that I’ve finished the show, I just don’t get why there’s so much vitriolic hate for her. She’s not my favorite by any means, but the excessive hatred seems unnecessary.
I don’t really like Xander. It didn’t seem like he changed very much throughout the seven seasons. I usually found him annoying, whiny, and not very funny. He seemed to feel like he was entitled to certain things (like female attention), and I didn’t like how judgmental he was of his female friends’ love lives. He just seems like a typical “nice guy” who THINKS he’s nice but actually is kind of a jerk.
When I first started watching Buffy, I only had access to Seasons 1-3, and 4 episodes of Season 6. It left me with a lot of questions: where did Oz and Angel go; when did we meet Tara; wait, Buffy died again, when did that happen? etc. Then I started reading the comic books without seeing anything past those episodes and I cried when my dad told me that Tara was dead and Willow couldn’t bring her back. I’m glad Netflix has all the episodes available, otherwise I wouldn’t know what I know now.
It sucks that SMG doesn’t seem to even like her own fandom. I understand growing up and wanting to break out, but you never see or hear anything about her and the Buffyverse/Whedonverse. It makes me really sad, and I secretly judge her for it.
I really wish Oz could have come back to Sunnydale when Willow went evil. I’d have loved to see the interaction between the two and how it played out.
Words cannot explain how happy I was to find out Faith didn’t die… Words cannot explain how ecstatic I was to find out she would be in the last season!
I don’t get why people loved Drusilla and Spike so much. Their relationship was too dysfunctional. And Drusilla acted like such a wacko the entire time.
I hate how there is so much rivalry between Spike and Angel. Yes, Bangel is my OTP, but I think Buffy needed different things at different points of her life, and when they stopped working for her, they ended. Both Spike and Angel have awesome moments, so can we just leave it at that?
I don’t know the whole story line, but knowing that in the comics Buffy gets pregnant and decides to have an abortion makes me feel so much better about the abortion I just had. It also makes me want to read the comics.
After I finished watching BTVS (again) online, I put myself into a depression. I missed the cast and the characters they amazingly portrayed. I’m now obsessed with Sarah Michelle Geller and have watched almost everything she was in…
I never really accepted Dawn as being part of Buffy’s life. The 5th season’s plot was interesting but after that I found Dawn’s presence way too weird to actually enjoy her character.
