Another yep. I mentioned in another thread that Buffy was my intro to 'shippers'.

Charisma manages to be a character that is very self-possessed, but also self-deprecating, too. I loved Cordy. She is as much comic relief as Xander.
I love Cordy way more than Xander. Her comic relief is bitchy whereas his is just too whiney for me. IMO, Xander is ok, but Cordy is the best!

Hmm. I never got "whiney" from Xander, at least not until a certain incident much much later. Until then, he always seemed like a good natured everyman.

I guess to me everyman is whiney.

eta: Not to say I hate Xander. I think he's ok. But he's my least favorite character in season 1.

I agree. I like Xander but I love the others. He's definitely whiny!

Prophecy Girl (s1e12) is up next. CAN'T WAIT.

In season 2

Spoiler:
Willow makes a reference to PMS's monthly occurrence after they find out that Oz is a werewolf.

Season 2 is much better than season 1 but since it's 22 episodes, there are definitely a couple of turds in it just like every other 22 episode per season show.

S2 had some of the best episodes of the series. Lie to me, surprise /innocence, becoming. It's often considered the strongest season!

I loved Cordy in this ep. Perfect balance of nasty and nice.

I liked Buffy's dress, too!

Finished Season 1! Now on to Season 2!!

I had to resort to IMDzb for a clue as to where I recognized Dave, from S01E08 (the one about the Internet demon), from.



Spoiler:
It's Ash, from Supernatural!

Ahh, didn't Cordy take "I'll drive you guys to the library" in a literal direction?

S2E1 When She was Bad
I'm so glad moody angsty Buffy didn't stick around for long.

S2E2 Some Assembly Required
Meh, not one of my favorites. Good play on Frankenstein though.

S2E3 School Hard
One of my favorite eps! I loved Xander juggling the contents of Buffy's purse looking for a stake. Willow stuck in the closet with Cordy. Joyce clocking Spike, and of course that means SPIKE and DRU show up, yay!

Dingoes Ate My Baby! I loved Willow's eskimo outfit. Who is that girl?!

Whew, lots of BtVS viewing for me this weekend. Now it's time for football. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Festivus, and to all a good night!

Annoyed to discover my s1 and s2 DVDs are missing. I've been watching on Netflix but the picture is terrible. Hoping the DVDs might be better.

No idea where they are. I must have loaned them out.

Just finished up season one. Turns out the whole thing was a first-watch, not a rewatch. I wonder if season two will be new for me, too. Still can't remember where in the series I started watching. I know I definitely never watched the final season, so I'm looking forward to that.

I finished ep 7 of season 2. The problem is that I now got used to watching it while doing other things and I can't seem to break out of that routine...

I don't remember all the eps between now and then, but get comfy and focus for surprise and innocence.

Whoa, yeah, really bad special effects. And Xander made quite the ugly chick.

I loved Willow this ep. She's great when she's bossy, and then realizes she's being bossy.

Next up, S2E6 Halloween.

I think you meant S2.
I'm terrible at remembering/recognizing lines.

I'd forgotten that Angel sired Dru.


Now on to S2E8 The Dark Age

Ha ha, yes, thanks.

I've watched OMWF am obscene number of times and listened to the soundtrack twice that. I could probably recite it.

Me too. But I have an excuse-- I had a Media Studies professor in college who was obsessed with Buffy, and I talked her into letting me do an independent study course specifically about OMWF and how it fits into (and a lot of times, breaks from) the established genre of the movie musical. I wrote something like a 50-page paper on it. Got an A+.
