Welcome back to Angel & Faith's "Best of / Worst of Character Moments" series. We're taking a look at the aftermath of the battle to stop Whistler's magic bomb from going off, which failed!

[Well, kinda... turns out the big boom is still a threat. The glitter affect causing so much damage now was just a mini-blast.]



Our Main Players in Season One's Issue 24 are: Angel, Faith, Lavinia Fairweather, Sophronia Fairweather, Alasdair Coames, Rupert Giles, and Nadira [still no last name, huh?]

Give a hand for Nadira.Collapse )

After our Best of/Worst of for "The Leech Woman", I'm in a mood for another. I guess I'm desperate for a chance to give somebody an unqualified kudo for something. So, let's take a look at "The Monolith Monsters" in which the good guys are the Good Guys and the bad guys are a bunch of space rocks.


Our Main Players to impress or disappoint are: Dave Miller, Cathy Barrett, Professor Arthur Flanders, Dr. E.J. Reynolds, and Chief Dan Corey.


YAY! to our characters.Collapse )

Hey Gang. While we wait for me to actually finish reviewing Supernatural and getting to the next Buffy episode, let's spend some time with a "Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments", shall we? Yes. The answer is 'yes, we shall'.


Our subject this time out, because I'd really like to get somewhat caught up on the movie characters, we'll be taking a look at... oh... "The Leech Woman". And with a title like that, this should be the bestest of the B-movies, eh? Alas. But it isn't bad, except for a bit too much travelogue of stockfootage-'Africa'.

Anyway, you can read all about that in the review, this here is about our main players: Dr. Paul Talbot, June Talbot, Neil Foster, Sally [Talbott], Bertram Garvay and the mysterious Malla.

Okay... I'm being a little generous with the term "main players".



So may demerits. So few people to root for.Collapse )

Welcome to Angel & Faith's "Best of / Worst of Character Moments" series. Today's subject is the battle royale issue in which Whistler tries to save the world, by killing billions with a Magical Virus Bomb. Angel and Faith aren't understanding that this is all for the greater good, apparently.


Our Main Players are: Faith, Angel, and Nadira. The Fairweathers do next to nothing, and Giles and Alasdair are in the mix, but they're sideliners here.

So let's take a closer look at our characters in Season 1's Issue 23!

It is a half-kudo kind of world.Collapse )

Hey Gang.


  Let's take another trip through our ongoing 'Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments' ...whattayasay?

  That was rhetorical. Because that is what this post is about, and for our subject, we're taking a look at BTVS' Season 09, Issue 21's
"The Core" part I -- in which Willow tries to keep Dawn from fading away, we're wondering if Xander will really betray Buffy to side with Simone Doffler, and the Mystic Council objects to the gang's big plan.


Our Major Players include: Buffy, Willow, Xander and Dawn... oh, there are others, including the returned Spike from Angel & Faith's visit but they're minor players this time out.



Xander, Xander, Xander. What am I gonna do with you?Collapse )

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Season 10, Issue 26

"Own It" part I

Script: Christos Gage, Artwork: Rebekah Isaacs, Colors: Dan Jackson, Letters: Richard Starkings & Jimmy Betancourt [Comicraft]
Cover Art: Steve Morris

Blurb: Despite their need to work together (both on writing the new rules of magic in the Vampyr book and on the fighty), the Scoobies are not getting along - or, as with Dawn and Xander, they are stranded in the other dimensions. The vengeance demon D'Hoffryn has been a constant influence on the new rules - so he is kind of super powerful now. Unfortunately, Buffy can't see that D'Hoffryn is the Big Bad she should have been fighting all along, because all she wants right now is to get Dawn back to Earth...


I knew our gang had made a horrible, horrible mistake...Collapse )

Hmm.Collapse )

For such a momentous moment, there is only one half-kudo??Collapse )

In which one of our Scooby Pals is overcome with desperations, frustration and anger and makes a deal with the proverbial devil in rogue Slayer disguise to save Dawn. Willow makes her triumphant return with her new magic.

[Also the issue that punched me in the stomach with that first flashback image. Ugh.]

Severin and Doffler... and Xander??Collapse )

The X-Files
Season 01, Episode 10

Eve

Writer: Kenneth Biller, Chris Brancato
DIR: Fred Gerber

Blurb: Mulder and Scully search for two missing girls who disappeared after their fathers were murdered in an identical fashion.





Scene 01: We open on a quiet neighborhood street in Greenwich, CT.

The camera wanders around for a bit. In front of a large home, a little girl steps timidly to the end of her driveway, clutching a stuffed animal and dressed in shorts and a short sleeved shirt. She shivers.
The opening really grabbed me and I ended up enjoying this creepy episode.Collapse )
