The hardest thing in this world is to live in it. Be brave. Live. For me.That's Buffy speaking to Dawn, her sister/not sister, in the finale of Season Five, just before she heaves herself off a hastily cobbled together scaffolding. OK, I didn't love that she kind of adopted a crucifixion pose, but I can't really fuss too much. Isn't that like de rigueur when sacrificing oneself to seal off a rent in the dimensional fabric? Plus, hello, all the plummeting...limbs akimbo.Jesus, Mary and Joseph but I loves Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I've just finished said season in my reunion tour with the Chosen One and her Scoobies. Alas, only two more seasons to go. Anyone else reading the new comic? Another issue next week and the first few have owned my ass.
Did I just hear someone scoff? Step off. This show is one for the ages. Whipsmart and incredibly funny. It pushed boundaries and MANY of today's hit shows on major networks owe it a debt of gratitude.
One of the best things about Buffy was its ability to completely turn things on a dime and send you hurtling in another direction. This was true of the plots, the characters, and even the mood within a scene. Week to week, even minute to minute, it was like being on a rollercoaster with your best buds. Only they're even funnier than your real friends.
Oh, poor Watcher. Did your life flash before your eyes? Cup of tea, cup of tea, almost got shagged, cup of tea. Spike to Giles
