Thoughts on Last Gleaming, Part IV

Another review in the continuing look back at Last Gleaming.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer--On Your Own, Part I Thoughts

 

I have to say that while I express some dismay personally on Buffy’s decision I have to say I really, really liked this issue a lot.

I love how in Buffy it is shown how incredibly out of touch the Council is in terms of the relationship that develops between a Watcher and Slayer.. Crowley and Nikki Wood best exemplify to me this bond that the Council has completely tried to squelch. When I read the Buffy moments in the present day, it brought out even more how much of a hole…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer--Last Gleaming, Part 3 Thoughts

First the continuing remembrance of simpler days when we all hated Twilight. 

 

Kurt Vonnegut once wrote a novel called Mother Night which told of an American playwright who was hired to spy for the U.S. as a Nazi sympathizer. He’s successful. Too successful. He’s so good he begins broadcasting Nazi propaganda to rile up support for the Third Reich.

The moral of the story according to Vonnegut: We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we…

Thoughts on Last Gleaming, Part 2

In one of my favorite moments from the movie The Searchers, the normally demure Laurie watches in lustful glee as her two beaus fistfight over her on the eve of her wedding. Going by Buffy’s fantasies even if Angel has her heart she’d still expect Spike to fight for hers.

I have to say I’m ambivalent about the Spuffy and I think it has to do with some of the weaknesses of Buffy and Spike themselves. I don’t think it was lip service to Buffy and Spike’s relationship. I think…
