Kate is Great!

Hurrah for cangetmad! The parcel containing loads of brand new Buffy arrived yesterday, and the Boy, his brother and I couldn't resist watching two episodes (in our Buffy-frenzy we would have watched more, but it was one in the morning when the second one ended). Sooooooo exciting! And we have five more left to watch!



Good Things:

Giles! GILES! Or is it actually the scary thing pretending to be Giles? if so, I will be both traumatised and pissed off, because if they have killed off Giles - a hideous thought - I don't want it to be in a stupid semi-off-screen way.

Principal Wood! Unfazed by evil manhole-cover and burying Jonathan! Is he evil? I kept thinking he was since the beginning, even though he was likeable, because (a) he knew a lot about Buffy and offered her a job even though she was totally unqualified) and (b) principal's office is on site of Hellmouth.

Andrew! I love him.

The surprise return of Joyce. Both very sad and creepy as fuck. I kept expecting her face to change into something else, which would have freaked me the hell out.

The sheer shock value (despite cheesey special effects) of the Watcher's Council all being blown up.

Bad Things:

The Slayerettes. No more bad accents. No more!

The fact that the Scooby Gang heard about Jonathan's death off-screen. I think that would have made a great scene, one which I think us long-time viewers deserved to see, but their odd relationship with him was ignored. I mean, Buffy talked him out of killing himself once! How did she react when she heard he had been killed?

I keep wondering this (I've only seen up to episode 12, thanks to The Great And Wonderful [Bad username: brandnewgun"]). Still, I now have Sky One. Whee!

Hurrah for Sky! Well, only because of its Buffy showing, not for anything else. I actually have Sky - virtually everyone in Ireland has had cable since the mid-80s, I think because that's when the British TV transmitters changed so it was going to be harder to tune in British TV channels here - but I am so paranoid about being spoiled, even on LJ, that I want to avoid it by trying to keep up with America as much as possible.

And seriously, if we find out that Giles, beloved Giles, is actually dead, and didn't even get a proper death-scene, I will track Joss Whedon down and kill him.

Giles is not dead... do not worry!

The episode with freaky Joyce is called "Conversations with dead people."

I love Buffy. Some of the episodes this year were kind of weak, but it's still a great show. What am I going to watch now?

Shit, don't tell me these things - I want to be kept in suspense! Seriously, I am very adamant about no spoilers at all, even if those spoilers are good things.

And no, this wasn't Conversations with Dead People - this is three episodes later, when Joyce keeps appearing to Buffy in what seem like dreams. Very creepy.

Oh, sorry about that. I won't spoiler you any more...
