Well I'm just excited to see it after all the hype I"ve seen and read about it. I'm just interested in seeing it for the sake that I can say that I've seen it afterwards.
And well, I don't miss any Buffy episodes!

hahah That was kinda cool with some funny bits in it. Well when I say 'funny' I really mean 'corny in a slightly humorous way cuz i'm a dork'.

Liked the Bunnies thing with Anya. Heheh. And was also pretty impressed with Tara's singing voice. Oooh just wondering where does this whole Spike/Buffy thing go from here - well I've heard on the grape vine about sex. Lots of sex.
We'll jsut see about that  flirt

Ahhh and I'm glad Buffy finally came out about the whole Heaven/Hell thing. It was really bugging me that everyone assumed it was a hell dimension, but she had mentioned where she was really had been Heaven. Just sort of getting resolved there.

Ahhh and Giles singing abotu leaving? Yes, well another rumour slowly folding out before my eyes. Thing is that Tara was also singing the same song (in harmony, naturally) with Giles - so what does this mean? Is she thinking of leaving? Sunnydale? Or just Willow?

Oh yes, nearly forgot... I give it 7.5/10! Mainly for pure insanity that this episode even went forward. A musical! heheh! Ahhh pure genius.

Something happens in a couple of episodes, i couldn't wait so I had to download  that scene. bwahahaha

anyway, i really liked that episode. but i've said the same thing about other tv shows that do musical episodes, because i always like them  big grin. best of the season so far IMO, 9/10.

Next Week: "Tabula Rasa"
After the gang finds out about Buffy's true afterlife, Willow does a spell to make her forget that she was actually in heaven, despite Tara's pleas for her to slow down with magick. Unfortunately the spell goes awry and the gang all wake up with amnesia, forgetting everything about their lives including the existence of vampires and the Slayer.
Because of their British accents, Giles and Spike ("Randy" wink think they are father and son, Giles and Anya think they are engaged, Willow and "Alex" think they are dating, and due to the absence of ID, Buffy names herself Joan.

I gave up watching Buffy this last week. There is no plot in this series, apart from the endless angst. Even with all the angst they have made it slushier than all of the previous series put together. Oh, Buffy, what have they done to you?
There are no adults in Buffy any more, come to think about it there is noone else in Buffy except the regulars. Where are the one off, well developed characters? Where are the crowds of extras?
I still watch Angel though.

No adults any more?? They are all adults (except Dawn), Spike is around 150 years old! unless you mean people over 30 or something, like Giles. i wish Giles didn't leave, but at least he'll be on that new show.

The "troika" or whatever they're called (the trio of nerds    big grin) keep appearing. but what do you mean by "crowds of extras"? they still have people appear besides the regular cast. Sweet from the musical was a pretty cool character IMO, but he'll never be used again.

what's the deal with Fred? i wish she did leave with her parents, she's too annoying. although i did say the same thing about Dawn, and she's gotten better this season. i say they make The Host one of the stars, he rules.

Where is the plot? Where is the main protagonist? Yeah, the three geeks are funny but they are not a patch on Glory or the Mayor, the trio of nerds could be so much better (unless they are saving it all up for the last half of the series). They rarely go to The Bronze anymore so there is hardly ever any unknown bands being given a chance. The humour seems to have dried up too. Ok, the bunny song in the musical episode was hilarious and there have been moments of humour but it is not a laugh a minute as it once was.
It has become a sea of barf-worthy-slush with the odd island of quality. Don't get me wrong, I like emotional bits but this is turning into a teen soap opera. There is more moralising and real life issues than butt-kicking-for-goodness.
Oh, and why has noone killed Spike? He was one of the best characters and now he is just a sad whimpering puppy dog. Vampires are not evil, they just need counciling, I thought he was eevil! He is a blood sucking undead parasite, but noone can kill him because he cannot hurt people (I though Drussila taught him to enjoy the pain), it is not like he has a soul.
I think the series has lost direction and become another mainstream drama based on issues rather than evil nasties from beyond the pale.
It should have ended when it was writen to end, when Buffy died at the end of series five.

At the moment Buffy consists of 50% Babylon 5 5th season style episodes, where there's lots of emotional turmoil but nothing really happens, and 50% stupid farcical episodes.  The Dorky Trio!  What's with that?  If Buffy wants to stop them why doesn't she just hold the Boba Fett action figure hostage?  How did they get hold of all that technology?  How the fuck have they seen every episode of Doctor Who?

And Angel, don't get me started!  The third season's so boring!  And Fred!  Oh God, it's like having Luanne from King of the Hill on the show!  And Wesley isn't fit to wipe Doyle's ass!

Hahah My brother has probably seen every episode of Dr Who. It's not that hard.... just takes a frelling long time!

But.. grr.. I'm not even going to respond to the dislike of Buffy in this thread. Oh well, I sorta just did. But I was kinda hoping this thread was a buffy-fan thread, not a "wow that show sucks" style of thing. Ah well you're allowed your opinion though... and the same goes for Angel! C'mon...
There are heaps worse shows on tv... at least Joss Whedon writes in wit, tact (or lack there of, Anya), and visual gags. How many shows could I list that don't even qualify for that?

i actually like this season. sure, it isn't as good as previous seasons, but i know what i likes on tv. and i read the spoilers for what happens later in the season, and it sounds like it gets even better. and darker. except for one thing that i, and most of the fans, won't like.

and they can't kill Spike, the fans love him too much.

and Fred is getting progressively less-annoying on Angel. she was way more irritating when she had a crush on Angel, but luckily it seems like she got over that now.

and the musical rocked.

Ninaka, it's harder to see evry episode of Doctor Who than you think, considering the BBC erased over 100 episodes during the 70's.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOO!
*shuffles off to carry out a comprehensive bombing campaign against the BBC*

Spike used to be the best character in the series. He had the best attitue, the best lines, the best style, everything. Now he is a sad, wet, limp character. It makes me sad.
I would love nothing more than for Buffy to get better (well, the continuation of Futurama while I am wishing), I have invested *counts on fingers, runs out of fingers* a significant number of man weeks watching it.
There used to be Buffy/Angel crossovers and you could tell that they were produced by the same production team. Now they have gone to different companies and it shows.

unfortunately they can't have Spike as his old evil self, and still have him as a regular cast member. he wouldn't fit into the show.

last night's episode was funny. the story wasn't great, but the humour made up for it.
"Randy Giles" BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHhHAh aHA
and now Giles is gone.  frown that's the thing that sucks. but at least before he went we got to see him as Anya's husband and Spike's father.  big grin heheh
and Tara left too...stop losing all the characters! but at least she'll be back. does anyone know where she'll stay now, since she doesn't have a house?
two episodes in a row that finished with Buff & Spike making out...hmm... wink
oh and Anya with all the bunnies was funny.  smile

I'm no Buffy fan, but why is Giles gone? (he's the british professor guy, right?)

I know he has that britcom thing in development, but BBC tv seasons only consist of like six episodes, right? Why can't he be on both shows?

hehehe

and if anyone in australia cares, next week:
"Smashed"
After breaking up with Tara, Willow successfully de-rats Amy and the two witches begin hanging out and having fun with magick, drawing Willow further into her growing addiction.
Meanwhile, Spike notices that his chip doesn't kick in when he hits Buffy but it only works with her, leading him to believe that she is not entirely human anymore.

Who's Amy??

Oooo in response to your spoiler - That's next week??? *sets the VCR* wink wink. lol.

I liked that episode last night. Felt a bit rushed though, but I like how they all named themselves or figured out who they were. "I must be some kind of superhero!!" heh and spike "I'm also a superhero!"

The spike/buffy kissing thing last night at the end left me pondering a bit. Where the heck did that come from, they weren't really even flirting during the episode and then BAM making out at the end. Just like telling us to accept it cuz this is the story line now! Grumble. Not even a convincing reason to why Buffy likes Spike yet... cept that he "understands" her? Ya...

Still...
Willows overuse of witchcraft is interesting and I like how the story has turned with that with Tara breaking up with her. Tara was very convincing with her argument about Willow's behaviours.

Is there anything useful that Dawn does? Cuz she just seems to hang around and do nothing all the time. Oh besides having great hair. What's up with that? A girl her age wouldn't know how to blow dry hair... I don't buy it.  tongue

Amy is a girl who someone (Willow?) turned into a rat. she gets turned human for a few seconds in the season 4 episode "Something Blue".

and i agree with you about it being rushed. last week was rushed too IMO.

If I remember correctly Amy turned herself into a at to escape being burnt at the stake, but nobody could turn her back, at least not in the episodes I've seen so far.

Why when Babylon 5 came out did the US networks reject it outright and the UK snapped it up, it was not a standard series length for a US series.
British series often go on for many more than six episodes you fool. Look at Red Dwarf for starters.
Giles is off the show to persue a career outside of hollywood where he stands a chance of being cast as something other than a stiff upper lipped Brit with his thumb up his arse. He is also staring in a series called Ripper, where Giles does his own thing in the UK.

Torquemada, what the hell are you on about? 

Babylon 5 was 5 seasons of 22 episodes each.  To the best of my knowledge 22 episodes is about the US standard.

And the first six seasons of Red Dwarf had six episodes each, before being extended to eight episodes for seasons 7 and 8.

And since when did the UK snap up Babylon 5?  As far as I'm aware, it was shown on one of the American cable channels, TNT, or US Sci-Fi, or WB, or something.

And another thing!  Ripper's supposed to be a Buffy spin-off, so Head would be playing Giles again.

Oo, I'm a Bending Unit now.  Bite my fleshy, gas-filled ass!
