Revisiting Buffy [Sep. 5th, 2005|10:58 am]
[Tags|, , ]

Last night I had the wonderful opportunity to find the essays by  shadowkat67on Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
http://www.geocities.com/shadowkatbtvs/index.html

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.
