"It's a fun fight scene, but that's not the heart and soul of Buffy. I wonder what the rest of the comic is like. Will they leave Buffy as the only slayer? It's back to the core concept, but also undoes the sense of empowerment in…"
"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…"
"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…"
Sorry to hear about your horrible hospital experience, although obviously I'm glad you're okay now.
Judging from the first episode, Poldark seems like a lot of fun. But not nearly as much fun as Spike and Buffy as Nick and Nora…"
"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…"
"That's what I thought too, but I think Christos Gage is using his Twitter account a bit like the characters are using the Vampyr book.
I still wonder if the whole Archaeus nonsense doesn't just come from Andrew scribbling fiction into…"
