We finally finished Buffy Season Three last night. I may have cried at the end of "The Prom". Such a great episode, and "Graduation Day" is one of the best season finales ever that should have been a series finale.

When Angel was talking about leaving, I was all, "No! Don't go! If you go, she'll end up with Spike, and is that what you want? It's not what I want!"


D said, "Real quick, what happened the next year again?" So I told him. And he was all, "Oh, yeah, and the next year? Yeah, pass. And then it was the Spike show. I think we're done here."



So that's it for our rewatch. Incomplete, but satisfying.


He said when we finished he'd watch ToA again. YAY!

Except for the bit about Oz leaving Willow and Willow turning into a cliched gay stereotype, I quite liked season 4. I thought it was a cool plot twist for the government to get involved in the demon game, because really, after three years of them popping up all over, it's asking too much to believe that NOBODY else has noticed these things' existence. And if our govt knows, it likes to get involved. Then it usually screws things up. Also, Buffy's adamant determination to keep the core group together, resulting in a fairly kick-ass season finale (though not quite the finale season 3 was) pleased me greatly. Besides, season 4 is when Anya became a permanent part of the cast, and isn't she your favorite?

Season 5? Ugh, kleenex fest. And I still haven't watched the actual end of the series.

I do love Anya, although I'd say Xander is my favorite. The later seasons, 4 and 5 mostly, had strong episodes but overall weaker arcs as far as I was concerned, and by the end it was just a mess, too many characters with too little to do, despite having the biggest evil ever as a threat.

Stopping with season 3 means everyone is still alive, happy (for the most part), and hopeful. There was less humor, happiness, and hope as time went on, until it was all stamped out by the end of season 7, not to mention all the contortions the writing went through so they could make Spike the big damn hero. And if the message was "life is the big bad" and they had to make everyone completely miserable in order to pull that off, then it made me wonder, just what are they fighting to save?
