Oof. Don't even go there.

I loved Buffy and Spike, too.

I am not so much a fan of bad boys in my real life, but on TV they are delicious.

Here's the thing. Bad boys really *can't* be reformed by the love of a good woman. But it's intoxicating to pretend that they can be.

Bingo.

I have zero interest in bad boys IRL. My husband is literally the nicest person I know.

But on TV they're a hell of a lot of fun.

I suppose this leads to a discussion of men, women, fantasy lives, etc...

But I sum it up by saying tomatoh.

Well, I like Logan more than Piz. To be honest, I forgot about Piz entirely until watching the Trailer. Completely un-memorable.

And that's the problem with nice guys on television. Bo-ring.

Nice doesn't always mean boring, but in the Venn diagram there is definitely an overlap.

IRL, no.

But it's very, very difficult to write a nice guy for TV who's also interesting.

Rewatching the series from the start does make it hard to like Logan, he is pretty awful the first half of season 1. But, he still manages to melt me so I can completely see how Veronica falls in with him - and it's also easy to see why she falls out from him so often as well. And that love is epic is the best scene in the show hands down.

On the other hand, I hated Buff + Spike, and I loved Riley. So I'm not predictably in love with the bad boy!

Yep.

My marriage makes for awesome RL but would be seriously snore-worthy television.

Rewatching the show many times this year, I actually don't think he's as horrible as I remembered.

I mean, the character is kind of blah, but I thought he did an ok job at certain times.

It's pretty hard to compare when most of the scenes you are in are with KB.

Just saw the trailer. I didn't think it was that bad. Much more like a movie trailer than a TV show promo, obviously. I'm still excited to see the movie!

Well they do humanize and make you understand why he behaves badly based on his family and expectations from the media. But Veronica cuts through the bad boy exterior and melts him. LOL

That is really nice, and kind of sweet. But actually rather boring.

Any ideas where to get a season 1 DVD set at a local store. I doubt Best Buy has, unless in some sort of discount bin.

Amazon is out of stock.

No B&M advice, but lots of options on eBay.

Nice! I would do the same, except I own them on Amazon and am in the middle of my 3rd viewing. I don't know if I'll watch it again, LOL.
