Last night I had the wonderful opportunity to find the essays by shadowkat67on Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
I have to thank S’kat for sharing the link to her BtVS
essays, they are very insightful and although I’ve only started reading
I have already had a mini-epiphany. I started with Restless
which is one of my all time favorite episodes, Season 4 being my all
time favorite season. I found the magic vs Sci-fi theme of S4 to
be very satisfying and interesting (me being a totally geek who finds
both genre fun and worthwhile).
The first episodes where Buffy deals with the issues of The Freshman
over-whelm and a bad dorm roommate were experiences I will never forget
(and what does that say about me? LOL). Also the way dear
friends tend to drift away at this time at life. People growing
up and changing so quickly, it is an exciting time of scary transition,
and I really felt that the writers handled it well. Plus, evil
secret government project, always suits my conspiracy theories about
the role of the Gov’t in our lives!
I think I was also attracted to starting with Restless because of the cool way you could click onto each sleeping Scoobie member to get to the essay on their portion of the episode.
