Buffy Season Seven: Epic fail, with nuggets

Just finished flixing Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season Seven. The last season. Quick review: While it had some of the strongest writing in the series, it was hampered by all the inconsistencies in background, and I just couldn't suspend my disbelief enough to care very much.

Discussion and major spoilers for Buffy Season 7 behind cutCollapse )

So I repeat my recommendation: If you have never seen Buffy and want to know what all the fuss is about, watch the DVDs from about the second disk of the second season and go until the end of the third season. If that grabs you, keep going until the musical episode in season 6; perhaps longer, and maybe fill in the first season.

Careful with the commentaries. If you don't like spoilers, always watch both parts of a two-parter before listening to the commentary on the first.

I have no interest in seeing Angel.
