to the DVDs!
When did they start showing Buffy on MTV??? And it's Season Three!!

But I've missed Band Candy and The Zeppo. Darn it.





(Aw, my Xander icon is so out of date. It should say "P.P.S. Dollhouse sucks too". We tried watching it, but... yeah, I'd rather watch Tru Calling for my Eliza fix.)

I never knew about it either until recently. I personally like getting my Buffy enjoyment via Internet. :D

I have it on DVD, but for some reason, I rarely get the discs out, but get excited when I find it on regular TV. I'm so weird that way.

Oh man, good times *is nostalgic*.

I love, love, love Season Three. Just great television start to finish. What happened, Joss???

Boyfriend got dumped bad.
I MEAN COME ON THE MISERY ON THAT SHOW HAD TO BE A REFLECTION OF SOMETHING.

If I remember my internets right--and you know everything on the internets is true--I read that a lot of the misery was Marti Noxon working out her bad boyfriend issues.

I've compared Joss to CLAMP before, and it's so true that I wonder, "How can you have created something I love so much when everything else of yours is so terrible?"

-I read that a lot of the misery was Marti Noxon working out her bad boyfriend issues.
Oh I read that EVERYWHERE. EVERYWHERE. And I believe it ... *adjusts tinhat*
And I think Joss isn't bloody god or something ... I've watched Buffy and Angel and the best pieces of his work (from what I've seen, duh) were the second and third seasons of Buffy and the first three seasons of Angel, and dear God, even his best works weren't perfect (for every Hush or Innocence, he wrote about 10 other really mediocre episodes), he's not exactly Ben Elton or Richard Curtis in their Blackadder era.
Sorry for the tl;dr. coughs

Definitely not god. I think the worst is when he (or the diehard fans) say, "Well, if you don't like it, you didn't get it." No, I can get something just fine and still not like it. (And I remember someone also saying that to me about Harry Potter of all things! If I didn't think it was the bestest series ever, then clearly I just didn't get it! Um, they're kids' books, what was there to get?)

Xander and Harmony both had a cameo on the episode of Criminal Minds I saw the other night. I was ridiculously excited.

Both? Aw, that is awesome! Glad to know they're still working.

Nicholas has found work on a lot of shows and although unfortunately those shows were cancelled (like Kitchen Confidential), it's always good for an actor to get work.
mellowcandle From: mellowcandle Date: February 9th, 2010 03:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
I did watch Kitchen Confidential and thought it was a pretty good show. It premiered at the same times as HIMYM, and I--gasp--thought it might even be the better show. I know!

I see him every now and then on made-for-TV movies, too. I just wish he'd show up on something I already watch, you know? They've had other Buffyverse actors on HIMYM--I'd love him to turn up there.

I think HIMYM is overrated. Yeah, I have plenty of reasons to be flogged and that might be one of them.

I love HIMYM but I think it's in a holding pattern this year, which is disappointing, and I think their reasons for breaking up Robin/Barney were stupid.

D doesn't really like it--he hates Ted--but watches it with me most times. Our marriage has managed to survive this terrible strain.

I've been curious as to why they broke up and one of these days, I'm going to find out ...

*tries to keep a straight face* L, you never stop inspiring me.
