Re: THANK THE VAMPIRES

That's right, end of 5 was end of WB.

That's not to say they weren't a few good episodes... and there was some good stuff in the later seasons. Just... not much. As Glacophane said, the musical. That goes without saying, that was superb. And "Normal Again" was just utterly superb, one of my favorites. And I'm still not upset at all that it's more than similar to a script I wanted to submit.

they are FINALLY cancelling BUFFY!

YES! woopie! that frelling show SUX SO BAD!
Pity you think that ...Buffy is one of those shows that I feel has gotten better with each season. Joss Whedon has managed to keep it interesting by changing what we get comfortable with. Spike bad...Spike good. Good Willow...bad Willow etc etc. The characters are neither black or white but always shades of grey. The constant twists and turns that happen in each season, has kept the show interesting and fresh. I for one, even though knowing the end would come, am sad that it will soon be over.

This final season is just astounding. The introduction of Father Caleb and what he does has left me cringing. And yes, I will admit I kinda like him (always did have a thing for bad boys) But still hope he gets taken out.

Just my opinion...to each their own.

Just saw the episode where Caleb arrives tonight and all I can say is WOW!!!

Spike delivered one of my favourite lines of the season when Faith asked if he was like Angel (now he has a soul)

"Angel's as dull as a table lamp, and I have very different colouring"

Caleb is incredible. Very sinister and cruel. Well, he is evil, Hathor DUH The 'Big Bads' in Buffy do get better and better. Glory was probably one of my favorite 'Big Bads'. But I think Caleb will knock her out of her no 1 slot. Be prepared, Caleb is going to give Buffy a wicked time...

As for Spike... I adore him. And he is right, not as dull as Angel. Who is much more interesting when he is Angelius. Go bad boy . Unlike Angel, Spike even now with a soul, is more entertaining. But, I will admit that I wish for the old Spike minus soul...he was delightful back then

Not that I would throw Soul Spike out of my bed mind you

She said it, so I won't have to.

I'm glad Buffy's ending, because it's time. I love the show, but it's time.

I will agree with you on that one. All good things must come to an end, and I'd rather it end when it is doing well. Too many shows carry on until you just wish someone would put them down like a lame horse, and put it out of it's misery.

Re: THANK THE VAMPIRES

I agree. Buffy's a darn fine show, but it's been threatening to go stale for some time now. Time to let it die a clean death rather than slowly wither on the vine.

Personally, the episode that clinched Buffy for me was the ol' S2 ep "Lie to Me." Buffy's conversation with Giles at the end is heartbreakingly good. And Spike is such a fascinating character -- just listen to his wonderful lines from the musical:

"The torch I bear is scorching me,
And Buffy's laughing, I've no doubt;
I hope she fries, I'm free if that bitch dies...
I'd better help her out."

Plus the romantic side of me is always pleased by the forbidden romance of vampire and Slayer.

Re: THANK THE VAMPIRES

I will be sad to see the show end, but also I think it has run its course. The end of Buffy will also mean an end of an openly out gay character on TV (for those who don't know, I mean Willow).

As for who think the show was bad, you should rent the movie, now that is crap!

What I fear is that the end of Buffy will mean another worthless and stupid reality show will appear.

ICAM! The fact that Buffy seems drawn to them is interesting. I am just so happy that she has finally started to be more interested in Spike. She was awfully mean to him for a time. And, like you I am a romantic...there is something about forbidden love that is very enticing and always fun to watch.
