    Thanks David. After reading your paper, I'm now watching OMWF again. :D

    And here I am busy resisting the urge to jump ahead.

    Just finished Ted.

    Overalls are my biggest ever fashion peeve for anyone over the age of three. *gag*

    I know they had a place in the episode, to show her state of mind, but why does she even OWN them?

    Really? I sure don't remember them from then.

    Now the high-waisted pants are similarly cringe-worthy but THOSE I remember.

    I love Oz. He's one of my favorite characters. Nice to see Amy back for an ep.

    Buh bye

    I way behind the rest of you, but I have no life so I'll close the gap. :D

    Watched the first three episodes of season 1. It was liking seeing old friends again who you didn't realize you missed. Is been a long time since I watched any Buffy, I don't think I've rewatched anything since the series finale.

    In the Witch,

    I forgot Amy's mom switched them!

    I don't think I'll go past season five. I didn't love either six or seven and I thought five wrapped things up the best. I never watched Angel but sporadically, I might give that one a full watch.

    I'm ready to be done with Xander lusting after Buffy and Willow after Xander.

    I'm also ready to be done with the Bronze but I think that sticks around quite a while! Mostly it's the gratuitous lingering on the indie bands that gets old.

    Finished S01E06 The Pack. Loved the X-Files reference when Buffy can't believe Giles is "going Scully" on her. :D

    I originally liked Xander, but I'm finding him much less funny and charming this time around mostly because of MASSIVE season 6 SPOILER

    Xander dumping Anya on their wedding day. I've never forgiven him for how he treated her.

    Also, Xander seems so familiar. I mean, it feels like he's reminding me of a character I've watched more recently. Maybe I'm just remembering him, but it's just this odd feeling as I watch. But I can't think of any shows. Hmm, maybe it's Shawn Spencer from Psych...That might be it. Same goofy sarcasm, doesn't take anything seriously, makes jokes about everything.

    As I rewatch I'm discovering I haven't seen many of these since the first time. Not first run, quite, but still it's been YEARS!

    I didn't discover Buffy until the musical which I watched, was completely hooked, and then went back and watched the rest in reruns. I suppose that means I've never had a spoiler-free viewing. :(

    In the episode with the hyenas, another Covert Affairs cast member showed up (the first boyfriend who was in the CIA).

    S01E08 I, Robot... You, Jane

    Episode 8 made me sad because of Ms. Calendar. And because at the end, the three scoobies agree they are doomed to never have a normal relationship. How right they are!

    That was an emotional episode! Buffy saying she's 16 and doesn't want to die is so tough to watch.

    All in all, I liked season 1! Some hokey moments, but the rest of you are much tougher on it than I was. It introduces the characters and their challenges that will grow and expand over the next few seasons. I love the dialog and didn't find the f/x objectionable. Solid B season!

    Zevida - Your season 6 spoiler is something I consider the biggest misstep that the show made. Especially in light of what happens later in the season as well.

    I haven't exactly been blazing through my rewatch (I'm only at S02E03), but it looks like my pace will be slowing quite a lot - my wife is coming aboard the rewatch with me, as is my older daughter (it'll be a first for her). I'm curious to see her opinion of it. She's a huge twilight fan (films and books both) and is now reading Bram Stoker's Dracula so she's very much on a supernatural kick. She's also a big fan of Doctor Horrible, which is the only thing she knows from Whedon (well, the Avengers, too).

    She'll be 13 next month, but is wise beyond her years. I'm pretty sure this will be the first "old" series she's watched; I'm curious to hear her reactions to bygone technologies like pagers and pay phones and terminology like "jacking into the net" and Giles' general Luddite attitude.

    S02E01 When She Was Bad
    S02E02 Some Assembly Required

    I thought the season opener was pretty good, Buffy had to deal with the issues from last season. B

    I tuned out quite a bit through the second episode. Two in a row of Cordelia kidnapped and in trouble, no thanks. Not sure this one moved the story along at all, pretty forgettable. Not bad, not great. C

    I'm very much looking forward to the arrival of the new characters in episode 3!
