Finally Staked (Buffy Chat)

Postby DanielW » Tue Sep 02, 2008 3:50 pm

And here we go again.
Let us re-cap:
Dark Willow = Hot.
Centaur Dawn = Silly idea.
Spuffy < Bangel.
Xander = Nick Fury.

Anyone care to add anything from the old thread?

Let's go for the remix.

Dark Willow = Worst decision the writers made during the televised series, so let's how it can be better now.
Centaur Dawn = So far, it's been really cool.
Spuffy = Bangel.
Xander > Nick Fury.

Well, here's my version:

Sexiness of Season 4 & 7 Willow > sexiness of the various evil Willows

Tara = Awesome

Angel and Spike on AtS > Angel and Spike on BtVS

All combo names (aside from Fred-llyria) = ANNOYING!

Hmmmm let me remix these as well...

Well, here's my version:

Sexiness of Season 4 Willow > Any other Willow. Vamp Willow looks sooo pasty. Aly is so much hotter now.

Tara = Good, but overrated, character. She's become idealized.

Angel on AtS >>>>>>> Angel on BtVS

Spike on AtS < Spike on BtVS = Spike in SPIKE (comics)

All combo names = ANNOYING! (SOPH!! I agree. I thought I was the only one).

Now for the Hawk remix...

Recycling Characters = Good, if it works.

Twilight = Riley


*"end of LOST episode" sound effect*

Or if they're Dracula and Ethan Rayne.

Minus those two and Warren, I think the season would be going a LOT better. And I would be looking forward instead of dreading the you-know-who return from the next arc.

Ethan Rayne? Recycled? Nah. He was a recurring villain throughout the series, it totally makes sense that he'd be back. And Dracula, dude, did you read #15? He was the absolute best thing about the "Wolves" arc. Like Brian did with the Loan Shark, Joss and Drew brought back Dracula who used to be a sucky character and made him totally rock.

Or if they're Dracula and Ethan Rayne.

And Warren, I'm sure we can all agree that Joss's continuity error in that aspect was his worst ever. But I don't mind the character being back, really. That lapcoat rocks lol

Dracula was mediocre at best. His dialogue was easy, silly, and not very funny. And he took part in one of the worst story arcs in Buffy history.

I would MUCH rather have him just not been there. The writers could have spent time actually explaining who these Jap vamps where, where they came from, what they were doing, and how they were supposed to be doing it. A perfect waste of interesting new characters to give screen time to a throw away joke of character who appeared in 1 episode.

Also, there wasn't a homo-erotic undertone to the Lone Shark and Spike's relationship was there? (Insert someone implying that there might have been here.)

Who cares about a bunch of random Japanese villains? It's DRACULA, baby! And they made him cool! And his stuff with Xander at the end, so so so good.

I loved that arc. Ah well, different strokes.

What?! I'm all for homo-erotic undertones (well, most of the time,) but I think that one might be a wee bit of a stretch.
