Re: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

KF, perhaps I'm being stereotypical, or simply just going by own experiences, but, I received many replies on the internet from women when trying to convince them to watch longer, and give it a chance to play out and the mysogyny was what they complained about (and in some cases, they had never seen it, and after trying it out on my reccomendation, were not pleased.). And my mom had the same reaction when I loaned her my DVD copies (though she also cited lack of likable characters)

As far as exploiting male dolls, Victor was really the only one we saw to any degree in the first half of Season 1, which is where most of the audience losses occured, plus, I don't think you're ever going to get the same response from an audience when a man is being sexually exploited as you will from a woman being exploited in the same manner (Not that I condone that, but, it's the way the world thinks in general)
