Yeah, that was a good one. And I still maintain that "The Body" was one of the best episodes of any tv show ever.

"Hush" and "I Will Remember You" are my favourite Buffy/Angel episodes respectively.

Hated? Wow. I can understand it not being one of your favorites, but I thought everyone generally appreciated it.

I will say that I consider season's 1-5 of Buff some of the greatest television ever. The last two seasons, other then a small handful of episodes, I try and pretend never happened.

Anyone read the Buff comics? I enjoyed "Season 8" as a whole, but my god did it drag on too long. It should have been a good 5 issues shorter or cut into two seasons. The big reveal with Twilight was a lot of fun as was seeing super-powered Buffy for a while.

I just read stuff about "Season 8" and beyond. Some of the stuff seemed kinda schlock-y like the resurrected teenage Giles and magic being wiped out. I dunno, part of me would love to see something live-action come out of that universe again but I think it was product of its time. The pop culture atmosphere is super serial now thanks to Nolan/Snyder and all-gritty-everything.

I've heard that the Angel/Faith series was good too. Those characters always had a great dynamic together.

Speaking of Angel, I really loved that show too. It was too bad they ended it on the 5th season as having Spike around really freshened up the show.

Who doesn't love Spike?? James Marsters killed it as Brainiac in "Smallville" too.

Spike wasn't originally going to last past the second season, but Joss liked the character so much he kept him around.

It's great to see Buffy getting so much love around here. One of the things I love about Whedon is that he's not one of those acclaimed people that gets all tight-lipped about his influences once people proclaim him a genius (or study his shows in college). Ive been meaning to watch that one British (?) science fiction movie (?) that inspired Hush -- I think it was called Silent Runnings or something.

Anyway, maybe I should give the comics another shot. I remember feeling a bit let down after reading the first few issues -- he still seemed not to have found his comic pacing yet (or rather, a pacing appropriate for comic books), and the lack of budgetary constraints that always reigned in the tv show + the lack of collaboration with other talented writers seemed to really eff things up. It just felt too big. Which was really weird, as his X-Men run was perfect, and contained all the magic he brought to Buffy. (Don't know whether that came before or after the Buffy comics, though...)

I mean, wasn't the whole reason he made "Hush" because critics at the time were praising the show's dialogue and said it was the show's best aspect? He wanted to do something radically different and relied on visual shit to get the creepiness/humor/action across in that episode. The guy is like Tarantino in the way he talks (passionately) about his influences and makes them his own.


And hell yes, his run on ASTONISHING was A+++++++

^ Same for the art too!

Hey is this the thread where I can complain about season 2 of Mr Robot?
post #3525 of 3801
I assumed season two was bad because I've been consuming a healthy glass of wine then watching it in bed on an iPhone 6. Is this not the case?
