She's already died twice. The only certainty about Buffy is that death isn't final, especially in Buffy's case.
I still argue that it's 3. She flatlined in season 6, which is as dead as she was in season 1. My count is 1 or 3, but not 2 :)

I'm not sure you know, but Numfar was played by Joss Whedon himself. Just one of those little bits o trivia. Joss was a demon... a dancing demon. No, something isn't right there. :)

I got the seasons 1-4 in the Amazon special a while back. I've been making my husband watch them with me from time to time. He hates commercials, so he rarely watches tv (and doesn't have the patience most times to ff through them on the tivo). But since these are on DVD, it isn't an issue. We watch them when we have time.

I'm trying desperately to resist the UMF for that right now. $118 is just a steal. I'm hoping they'll be under the Christmas tree from Santa this year.

If they show up in my Gold Box before then, though, I may not be able to resist anymore. :(

I never really thought Charisma was good or bad as an actress

but when she disappears for a while in S3 of Angel, I have to admit that I missed her

I have never liked SMG as an actress, and she was the #1 reason I avoided the show when it was on. Of course, the writing and the other characters were the reason the show was great. That said, SMG did have some great moments in the show, though at the end of the day, Buffy could have been anybody AFAIAC.

Best Eps for me in S2 were School Hard (of course), What's My Line 1 and 2, Surprise and Innocence (I believe this is a two parter with different ep titles), and Becoming 1 and 2. I was going to leave becoming off the list, but upon further reflection, I decided to leave it.

One thing you may notice is that these episodes are mostly Buffy mythology eps, which were my favorites.

While I think SMG is not a good actor, they certainly built the role (and the show) around her limitations, which is fine. They did the same thing with Cordy, intitially, but when the character began to expand, she quickly expanded beyond Carpenter's ability, and became annoying (that is, annoying not on purpose).

What? No Xander fans? "The Zeppo" and "The Replacement" were classics!

I'm just starting season five and am well into Angel 2. I got hooked on Angel last seaons (4) when I was watching the dreadful "Birds of Prey" and it was off one night and I saw Angel instead. Hooked me totally. Season 4 of Angel was riveting. I can't remember the last time I arranged my life around a show so much. Of course now, I never have to do that again. :D

I bought my TiVo so I wouldn't have to keep rushing home to see Buffy and Angel.
I was so annoyed at missing Superstar in it's original WB airings both times......

Oh man that Amazon deal....

Buffython '04!

I believe I am most definitely coming out ahead in the end! :D

You still didn't edit your original post...I don't care, but I know newcomers will, as I would have if I weren't up to date.

  • Xander: You're in a band. That's like a business-class ticket to cool with complimentary mojo after take-off. I gotta learn an instrument. Is it hard to play guitar?
  • Oz: Not the way I play it.

You did see "The Body", right? Or "Normal Again" or "Dead Things" or "Becoming" or "Forever" or "I WIll Remember You"?

Okay, so that last one was an "Angel" ep...she was still brilliant in it, and in all the eps listed and in dozens that I haven't bother to list.

Color me stunned. :confused:

Agreed... hearing Joss' commentary on the DVD version of "The Body" showed just how good an actor she can be... they made her do that whole first few segments, up until Giles shows up, in order. Joss said essentially that she put herself through an emotional wringer on that episode, and it shows.

I think SMG is a wonderful actress. She may never get another chance at another vehicle that was perfect for her talents, though. She's on the road to oblivion if she keeps making crappy movie choices.

I think the flatline was due to Willow's electrical interferance.

Yup, I've seen every episode and am working my way through Angel right now.

I consider her an average actress.
