Yeah, Anubys gave it a fair shot. I really would hope that he would make it to the end of S2, because I think that I went from "Huh - I don't know why I keep watching" (S1) to "I kinda like this show" (middle of S2) to "OMFG this show is incredible!" (end of S2).

If at the end of S2 the show isn't for you. Fair enough. But you have to give the teen angst time to set its hooks in you.

I remember always liking the Faith character. Not that I like her as a person, but I thought she was really interesting. I wonder how I'll feel on the rewatch.

I like Xander much less on the rewatch. I wonder how much is colored by future knowledge.

Oh, and I skimmed wikipedia to read the synopsis of the comic books for "seasons" 8 and 9. Boy did it get weird. Comic book weird! Felt more like what I'd expect from X-men. (Having never read an X-men comic and only seen the movies.)

It's available streaming on Netflix, too.

(I love the library for books, but the DVDs are always scratched. )

S03E01 Anne - B
S03E02 Dead Man's Party - D
S03E03 Faith, Hope, and Trick - C

I actually liked Anne. I didn't have fond memories of it, but I thought it was well done, showing how the people back home were dealing and appropriately how Buffy was coping.

I did not like Dead Man's Party at all. The only moment I liked was when Buffy saw Giles and he went into the kitchen to get the teapot and took a moment to compose himself. Anthony Steward Head conveyed about 10 different things in that brief, silent moment. Otherwise, I wanted to punch Xander in the face (4 or 5 times). I identify so much more with Buffy, because when things go bad, I want to withdraw and deal on my own. I don't think her running away was nearly as bad as it was made out to be. Shame on all her friends!

Pretty good intro to Faith in this episode and revealed both her brashness and her insecurities. Average episode.

IF she had let them know she was alive, then yes. But to leave your friends and family not knowing? That's cruel.

Too bad they killed off

I always thought that would have been a good character to keep around.

Something I've always wondered was when Faith started slayer training.

I always thought it was weird that Kendra grew up with a Watcher. I guess she was a "potential" (gag, always hated that concept) and they knew that, so they trained her just in case. But I can't imagine that's how Faith grew up. So that means that she wasn't called until Kendra died and at most she had four to five months of slayer action before going to Sunnydale. Right? Am I missing something in the timeline or training? I'm failing to see how she had all those adventures in a couple months.

Also, when a new slayer is called, wouldn't someone at the Watcher's Council ring Giles? Maybe give him a head's up?

And if you can identify potential slayers (gag), why wouldn't you trail all of the immediately from a young age? (Ok, I guess it puts them at risk before they have their power...but then why Kendra?)

Maybe these are unanswerable questions, but curious if others have info or a perspective I've missed.

I'm not sure about Faith, but I remember Kendra specifically saying that her people believed so strongly in the need for slayers that they trained girls from an early age for it.

And it's not strange that someone from the council didn't call Giles. He's not really one of the council 'cool kids'. After all, they didn't invite him to the meet, so I don't think they keep him in the loop about much.

Just because Faith says she had those adventures doesn't mean she really did. Faith isn't the most trustworthy of people.

I guess it's just a cultural difference. It still feels weird to me.

S03E04 Beauty and the Beasts - C
S03E05 Homecoming - C

I am struggling with season 3. I remembered liking it a lot more than I do so far. I don't like Willow & Xander cheating. I'd like Angel to get back to normal. At least we finally introduced the mayor. Faith is actually my favorite character so far! She's the only one not been broody. Both the episodes above had good parts and bad parts. Just a lot of meh all around. I'm hoping things pick up soon.

So it took a little while for the stars to align, but last night we were all in the same room at the same time in the same mood to watch Buffy, so she saw S01E01. The verdict is that she liked it and wants to watch more. She was frustrated that it ended on a "to be continued" cliffhanger. She particularly liked Buffy's character.

You are right at the beginning (starting with the next ep, Band Candy) of when S3 gets all awesome-sauce. Out of the 17 episodes left, I would say that at least 14 of them are excellent.

Wow, you're right. I just looked at the Season 3 episode list and everything from Band Candy is pretty darn great.

Seriously, I may have to rewatch S3 now.

Whereas I look at S4 and go 'meh'.

Then back to S5 and a bunch of great ones again.

I hope so! I remember it being much better than it has been so far.

Nice reference from joyce re: band candy.

It annoys me how cavalier people are about inviting vampires in. Holding a crossbow on him is great for right now, but you've just given him an all access pass.

Well, they did figure out how to revoke the invitation, so maybe not so bad.

S3E5 Homecoming
I love this ep. Starts out angsty, but I love it after the limo ride. Love pissed off Cordy.

S3E6 Band Candy
I love this ep, too. Giles and Joyce were just too funny.

Not sure that's advice, but I agree with the sentiment.
