not the great show i remembered it to be

Choose file... or enter url:
buffy used to be one of my favorite shows ever and i rated it 10/10 but now that i'm watching at once more after a couple of years, i can't help but realize that i probably got way too sucked into it back then.

the stories are mostly really great but buffy is pretty annoying, dawn is probably the most annoying character i've ever seen in any tv or movie production and the "big bads" of season at least season 4 and 5 seem ridiculous (i haven't watched 6 and 7 yet, can't remember the finale of season 7 any more).

i don't know why they added that stupid "hyper-girly" character or why they couldn't see that neither adam nor glory were interesting, it's really a pity because that show had such huge potential. but at least angel mostly succeeded where buffy failed.

8/10

For one thing, you have to keep in mind that yes, the show will be outdated upon viewing it again after some years have passed. I agree about Dawn being super annoying (but don't forget about the ultimate annoyance of Jar Jar Binks if you're going to bring in movie productions)...and the "big bad" of season 5 is named Glory, not Gloria. I don't know who you're referring to in "that stupid 'hyper-girly' character", and also, Angel went downhill as well, and actually ended because it was cancelled, not because it got to come to the conclusion it was supposed to, and the ending of that was pretty stupid, if you think about it.

I love both shows, but if you're going to critique the entire show, I think it's a good thing to always bear in mind that it is an older show now, so yes, it might be a bit outdated (references and such), but the writing is very good, it's witty, entertaining, and the lines these characters get are just awesome sometimes.

Also, if you're going to critique the entire show, it might be a good idea to watch the entire thing and see how the show DID turn back around toward the end, and...get the characters' names right, lol...and name who you're referring to in "hyper-girly", as you haven't said where she was added into the show at all...are you referring to Dawn?

And season 5 was pretty good, how it ended. It was supposed to be the end of the whole show, after all, keep that in mind too. Then season 6 came back with some good stuff, darker, more grown up.
