"Yes, it is strange that Angel would keep the secret of Spike's soul from the gang. He must have been suffering from Impostor Syndrome -- just as we see in the dreams of Soul Purpose. It's like Spike's role as a champion makes Angel…"
"I think Angel season five really trades in the wonderful comic chemistry between David Boreanaz and James Marsters. Those two really ping off each other, and of course the show takes full advantage of this.
How to explain this in terms of the…"
"I’m really looking forward to the discussion. I just read Spike: Aslyum. It might be semi-canon or demi-canon or grandfathered-in canon or even non-canon, but it’s better written than some of the canon comics.
"I favour structural -- or near-publishing -- order. I think that brings an experience closer to what was intented. After all, First Night was conceived as being part of After the Fall.
It's not like some volumes of Sherlock Holmes stories that…"
"I don't know. Christos Gage seems like a really subtle writer. I don't think he'd be likely to poke our eyes out with a theme. For example, after reading the literary theories of Auerbach, Lacan and Fiedler, I think I might have…"
"Why stop there? Maybe Parker will come back too. Or Scott Hope will be Andrew's new boyfriend. I still expect when Riley reappears he'll have fangs, and be sired by Dru. I still think Dru was behind the shenanigans in the South American…"
"The depressing thing is that there are stories like this at all the major companies. Dark Horse and Scott Allie are just the latest to be caught.
It really is an industry problem, and it's not helped by talented but established artists going…"
"Christos Gage et al. strongly hint toward Giles chosing to remain as a kid. I figured they would let make Giles make that choice during his day as an adult -- clear-headed and free from raging hormones but now. Or maybe the whole thing is headed to…"
"It's the silhouette that makes Archaeus look good. We don't see that hideous red colour or the sunflower-like specifics. It's a bit like when Spielberg realized how crappy the fake shark in Jaws was, and therefore showed it as…"
"This preview isn't too promising.
Either the writers have gone insane with self-help stuff or there's a demon or money-making cult manipulating Xander. The writing feels forced and phony.
Also, you'd think that Buffy would have…"
"Back in the 1980s Starburst Magazine quipped that Jason Connery was perfectly at home in Sherwood Forest because he looked and acted like a tree. However, as I know people who know him personally and really love his performance, I have to invoke…"
"Lulurose, yes that's the one I'm talking about. It was called Robin Hood in the original US run, but the DVD/Blu-Ray releases use the original UK title of Robin of Sherwood. Jason Connery was the second actor to play Robin Hood in the…"
"I haven't seen either version of Poldark yet, but I've heard good things.
The Richard O'Sullivan Dick Turpin, however, was created by writer Richard Carpenter who was also responsible for one of my favourite versions of the…"
"I expect that Archaeus is going to play Iago to either Spike or Angel's Othello. Maybe the Demon Noel Coward will try to do what the First spectacularly failed to do with the "that bitch" comment in the penultimate episode."
"I think Buffy was massively hurtful right at the start of their relationship in issue 13 by referring to Angel immediately after having sex with Spike. Sure, she didn't know he just had weird psychic killing dreams, but I don't care…"
