Sorry, bud.....I actually worked today with my brother.....physical labor even. I am whupped! :sos:

So I was telling Gate that I was literally dying without the board because we've watched probably eight or nine Buffy episodes since I last posted and I needed to dish! Seriously, I haven't watched an entire series so fast since we got the first season of House many moons ago. I am officially obsessed!

First off, one of my FAVE eppies was Crush, the one where Spike finally declares his love to a repulsed and unbelieving Buffy. I had to watch that one twice. But leading up to that, his little crush on her has been so freaking hysterical from the 'Buffy mannequin" to Spike stealing Buffy's blue cashmere sweater and he and Harmony doing the role play thing with her wearing it and acting like she was the slayer. Just so funny. And one of the eppies had Spike and Joyce watching Passions together and excitedly discussing Timmy the doll. Fabulous!

We are still SHOCKED that they killed off Joyce. I thought she was a goner when she was going through the brain tumor and the surgery and stuff.......I really thought they were going to kill her off then. But nooooooooooo. She survived. Yay! And then a few episodes down the road she up and dies out of freaking nowhere! Shocked......stunned.......saddened. We watched "The Body" last night and OMG.....it was just too sad for words. It was the first time that I was almost glad when an episode ended.....I was that shook up. But the performances of the actors in that episode were amazing. Especially Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan, and Michelle Trachtenberg. I didn't cry until Willow started losing it and after that, I was a goner. Damn.....I just can't believe they really killed her off! :rip:

Tonight we watched 'Intervention' with Spike and his 'Buffybot'. I was happy to get back to the lighter, more fun stuff. LOL......as if Spike could REALLY be satisfied with a Buffy robot. I don't think so! One of my fave parts in that one was when Glory thought Spike was the key so she had her troll guys capture him. Then when he wouldn't tell her who was the 'key', he told them it was the guy from that game show where you have to guess the prices. And the troll guys go, "We will bring you Bob Barker! We will bring you the limp and bloody body of Bob Barker!" My hubby and I were laughing so hard we couldn't hear the rest and had to rewind! :lmfao:

Only four more episodes to go......this is soooooo much fun!!!

HOT, HOT, HOT, SMOKIN' HOT!!!!

I need to see 'Crush' again. I remember the story, but not the little bits.

'The Body' is one of Buffy's finest hours. Tremendous piece of tv. Sarah Michelle's best work.

Did you watch Alias? One of Glory's troll guys is played by Kevin Weisman, Marshall from Alias...

Get outta town! Of course I watched Alias......and I LOVED Marshall! I'm almost positive he's my favorite troll now that you mention it. I thought he looked familiar and he's just so darn funny and sweet. It makes more sense now that I know who is playing the character.

HOT, HOT, HOT, SMOKIN' HOT!!!!

Well, we watched the finale of season five tonight so we are done for the time being. I'm so sad. It's like getting to the end of a good book and you just don't want it to end. :'(

I thought the finale was amazing. I even cried even though I KNOW Buffy can't possibly be dead since I still have two more seasons to watch. I just have to tell ya'll how much I love Dawn now.....love, love, LOVE her! It hardly seems possible to grow attached to a new character so quickly but it happened.....I can't even imagine the show without her now. And I love her relationship with Spike, so cute. I love this show!

And have I ever mentioned that James Marsters has the most magnificent cheekbones ever? Angel who??? :bye1:

One of the reasons I missed the board this week was that I just knew that as you got into S5 you'd pick up the viewing pace and I wanted to hear your reactions!

One of my favorite episodes. Druscilla is just always awesome.

I just love how Spike cons Buffy into a "date" and her reaction (((looking up the line...)))

Buffy: What is this? The late-night stakeout, the bogus suspects, the flask! Is this a date?
Spike: A d... please! A date? You are completely off your bird! I mean— (hopefully) Do you want it to be?

Joss is the master of angst and pain. This is on most fans' top 3 or 4 list. Even more than Buffy, Willow, Xander, Dawn grief, I love Anya's grief. I expected the Scoobies to be shattered, but Anya's confusion and pain was what hit me. I cry very time she makes her speech


Anya (crying): "But I don't understand! I don't understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she's, there's just a body, and I don't understand why she just can't get back in it and not be dead anymore! It's stupid! It's mortal and stupid! And, and Xander's crying and not talking, and, and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she'll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why. (She puts her hand over her face, crying.)"

Love love LOVE the Buffybot. I think SMG doesn't get enough credit for this dual portrayal. Especially in S6.

It ain't over yet. Lucky you!!!!

The Gift is a Top ten eppy. Love the scene at the end with the Scoobies and Spike under the tower crying.

Yes the Spawn relationship is awesome...and a major reason that, imo, Spike....well, save that for S6 and S7 discussion....

JM was working out and nearly starving himself for this role at this point. I hate to say it, because I don't want anyone to starve...but damn....(((hotflashes...)))

There was a well known fanvid on Youtube of Spike and his *headtilts." It's gone now. :-/ This is a short version....

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fusea ... =806806572

There are also many outstanding fanvids featuring the Buffy cast and Spike (natch') is a big focus. Here's one that has a lot of *Crush* - there are a few spoilery scenes from S6 and S7 but nothing plot driven. You'll need to download it and have the xvid code to play....

KMI! I want that Spike banner!!! :wow:

LOVED the headtilt video.....and the Tragedy vid is one of the best I've seen yet. And believe me, I've been scouring the net in the last week or two watching them all. Ha! Thanks for sharing. And if you have any more good ones in your arsenal, please feel free to post the link.

Onto my responses:
wrote:Reaction to Riley and his exit in Into the Woods?
Well, I was ready for Riley to go even though I liked him so I was VERY happy he didn't hear Buffy running after him as he was leaving in the helicopter. I thought it was extremely creepy what he was doing with that skanky vampire chick. Ewww! LOVED how Riley and Buffy's breakup made Xander realize how much he loved Anya and his little speech to her about how much in love with her he was....that literally made me melt. I felt for Riley because everything he said was true.....Buffy didn't really love him, not like she did Angel. He seemed lost without the Initiative and playing second fiddle to Buffy. Leaving her was a smart move for him AND for us. Remember this quote from Spike to Riley?

"Sometimes I envy you so much it chokes me. And sometimes I think I got the better deal. To be that close to her and not have her. To be all alone even when you're holding her. Feeling her, feeling her beneath you. Surrounding you. The scent... No, you got the better deal."

Loved that! :wub1:
wrote:Liking Tara? with Willow?
I liked Tara from day one. She and Willow are just so perfect together. Like I said in the other thread, it seems very natural and organic. I don't even miss Oz anymore. Hated it when Tara had no brain because Glory melted it.....was REALLY happy when she got back to normal in the finale.

OMG. I was crying too. Especially when they showed our Spikey crying!

You are such a tease!!!

What an episode. I watched the commentary on 'The Body' yesterday and everything Joss said about it was so true. I didn't even realize at the time that there was no music in that eppy, I just knew that it was heartbreaking and disturbing and painful. ALL of their reactions were just so real. I agree about Anya's speech......she was so pitiful and sweet. I love her now....it took a while but she totally grew on me and now my hubby and I both adore her.

James Marsters' workout routine was definitely worth it. He looks amazing. It would appear that you and Gate have another person to fight over him with......ME! :rotf:

HOT, HOT, HOT, SMOKIN' HOT!!!!
