Back again, huh?

Okay… let’s entertain you with another posting of  “Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments” as we all seem to have a bit of fun with ‘em.

Our post’s subject is going to be Buffy’s sister comic, “Angel & Faith”.

And our scrutiny is to be focused on Season 1 [y’know what, I hate actually referring to seasons with this comic because it’s all so screwed up: We can call this Angel & Faith, Season 1 or we can call it DH’s Angel Season 09, or we can call it correctly as Angel Season 07... Argh.]

Our issue is Number Thirteen and our focus characters are: Angel, Faith, Willow, and Connor and the Kobold Leader.

Our heroes come out ahead.Collapse )

Man, I have got to figure out a schedule in order to get back to posting on a more regular basis, gang. I am so dragged out! Before we get to today’s subject in our ongoing “Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments” posting -- The Buffy review for “Gingerbread” will be completed and posted this weekend for sure. I want to say by Saturday night, but let’s just commit to “this weekend” and leave it at that for now.


But back to today’s post: We’re scanning our main characters for their moments that make us cheer for them, and those for which we can only shake our heads in disapproval. Our subject today is Buffy and the gang in Season Nine’s “Guarded, Part I”… also known as, Issue 11.


Our Characters falling under my withering scrutiny are: Buffy, Kennedy, Eldre Koh, and Robert Dowling.

More kudos than demerits is always great.Collapse )

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Season 03, Episode 10

“Amends”





Writer: Joss Whedon
DIR: Joss Whedon

Blurb: As the Christmas holiday approaches, Angel is tormented by visions of his past victims, including Jenny Calendar, who want him to kill Buffy.

My Blurb: So, uh... I just didn't have the energy to play games so I name the bad guys before we actually hear their identities discovered by the gang. If you really, really don't wanna know because, I don't know -- you read reviews of shows you don't even watch I guess -- then skip this review until you've watched all of Season 7.


Slow to get going and a bit overdone with the drama, but the acting redeems it.Collapse )

Next up: Another Buffy: "Gingerbread", but I'll probably have A&F and Buffy latest comic issues reviewed and posted first just because of the work scheduling.

Yay, only the bad guy gets a demerit.Collapse )

Welcome back, Buffy fans. Time for another Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments, taking a look at BTVS, Season 09, Issue 10.

Well, if I can get over my outrage at Andrew's hijinks so I can focus on our other characters.


And to that point, our focus characters are: RoboBuffy, MindCloneBuffy, Spike, Andrew, BugCrewMen and Robert Dowling.

Damn. An anti-kudo to the bad guy.Collapse )

Welcome back to another Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments with Angel & Faith. Our current issue will be Season One's
Issue Eleven and the start of Willow's attempt to bring about the return of magic to Earth, but not until she and Angel share some harsh words at one another.

Our focus characters include: Angel, Faith, Willow, Nadira, Gunn, & Connor.

Willow was angering me during this period, but she still gets a kudo.Collapse )

Welcome to another edition of Best / Worst Of Character Moments with the Scooby Gang, as we check out Buffy's Season 09 Issue 09.


Our focus characters in this Buffy/Buffybot vs. Simone Doffler issue are: Buffy-in-Buffybot, Andrew, Spike, Xander, Robert Dowling and Dawn.

Give a hand to Robert Dowling... oh wait, never mind.Collapse )

Best Of / Worst Of Angel character moments rolls on with Angel & Faith's Season One, Issue Ten's "Women of a Certain Age" where we find out about Rupert Giles' childhood and how he came to be identified as a destined Watcher from his two Grand Aunts.

Alas, they also happen to be comedy relief characters. But I suppose that could be my own issue, as I generally dislike CRCs. Anyway, our focus characters are a bit of a list:


Angel
Faith
Sophronia (including her flashback counterpart)
Lavinia (including her in flashback as well)
Flashback!Edna (Rupert's Grandmother)
Flashback!Mr. Giles (Rupert's father)
Flashback!Rupert


Angel & Faith are more patient than I am.Collapse )

Welcome back to another posting for our ongoing "Best of / Worst of Character Moments" series! Are you excited? You're excited.

We're here to take a closer look at our heroes in BTVS, Season 09, Issue 08.

I have only two words to say: Andrew Wells.


I want to punch him.


But our focus characters are: Andrew, Buffy (mostly), and Spike.

I struggled not to claw my eyes out, but if the dude deserves a kudo, he deserves a kudo.Collapse )
