Bullet points! What a horrible expression. I wonder how that originated, but can’t be bothered to google.
* It is 2.37 a.m, and I am up, not sleeping, fretting about the fact that I have to officially get up at 7 and start the day. I am tired, but frazzled – can’t switch my mind off, fed up of laying in bed twitching.
* I am going to LitCamp on Friday. Hurrah!
* We are now “on” Buffy season 4, and I had previously intended to write up each season as we went, but abandoned that due to lack of ability to see things through!
So very briefly:
Thank god for Spike. First time round I entirely missed his genius. I was a strict Angel fan, but now I see how he brought light to the dark. He’s very funny, very witty. A bit pathetic and bumbling. Kendra! Crap! The whole Jenny Calendar story is pretty good, and of course, Angel turning bad is tragic, but enormous fun for the viewer. Oh, and is it this season where Oz catches sight of Inuit Willow? I love that scene, so cute.
The end is uber tortured and angsty.
This is where it all really gets super excellent.
Faith! Wow. So cool, so wrong, so dark, so hot. It’s a great thing to have an opposite Buffy. I love Willow’s reactions too, they seem eminently believable. Oz and Willow are sweet. First showing of Anya, whoo hoo! Two great relationships; Buffy and Angel and their DOOMED love, and Faith and the Mayor, which somehow manages to avoid anything icky and inappropriate and is warped but touching.
The end is the perfect counterpart to Season two’s close.
