I’ve got two posts tonight to share. Both are Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments and this first one will be for BTVS, Season 10, Issue 02.
Our second will be for Angel & Faith, Season 02, Issue 02.
Our current issue is all about fighting off Vicki and her shape shifting vampires who shouldn’t be, and welcoming Giles back to the Scooby Gang. And there are so many characters going on… AAHHH! Who’s a “main” and who is an extended cameo?!
Let’s see… um…
Our Main Players will be: Buffy, Giles, Xander, Dawn, Willow, Spike, & Andrew.
Everybody else is gonna be a ’cameo’.
Our Characters Are Terrific!
Buffy: Nuthin here.
Xander: Not a kudo in sight.
Dawn: Sorry, Dawn.
Spike: I’m handing Spike a Half-KUDO. The trick with the alcohol and lighter to fight off the vampire-bees was pretty cool.
Andrew: It’s nice that Andy started asking relevant questions that got everyone’s minds working on this new vampire thingie… but no kudo.
Our Characters Are Annoying!
Buffy- I did find it a bit irritating of Buffy to a) leave Santa Rosita in the hands of one Slayer, one Billy and one not-quite-Watcher to fight Vicki and her new breed and then following up this highly questionable choice with b) allowing her sister - who she just barely was kept from losing forever - and her best friend - who is already susceptible to Dracula - off to his castle half a planet away from any help. All together, it’s enough to earn a Half-DEMERIT.
Rupert- I didn’t appreciate Giles’ attitude about things he had no knowledge of when it came to Billy and his Primitive Slayer experience. In fact, “way to be dismissive, arrogant and a bit of a tool all in the space of 30 seconds”, Rupert. Half-DEMERIT
Xander- Nothing for Xan.
Dawn- Dawn is fine.
Willow- Wills doesn’t annoy.
Spike- Spike gets out without a demerit.
Andrew- Andrew doesn’t irritate.
