Hey, and hi. We're back with another edition of the Buffyverse Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments. And this time, we're actually with Buffy and the Scooby Gang.
Let's take a closer look at our main players in Season 10's Issue 05.
Our main players are: Rupert Giles, Willow, Dawn, Xander, Buffy & Spike.
Poor Andy is stuck in cameo-player status.
Our Characters Are A-Okay!
Rupert: Giles pulls out a Half-KUDO for some quick energy shield action that saved the more human Scoobies from a squishing.
Willow: I like Willow's grabbing a priest to change a pointed skyscraper into a 'sacred object' and it earns her a Half-KUDO.
Dawn: I'm totally giving Dawn a KUDO as large as herself for staking Maloker with a skyscraper.
Xander: Xander saves the day! A KUDO for the rather obvious way to get around Maloker's return.
Buffy: I'm handing Buffy a Half-KUDO for blinding Maloker and saving Dawn's neck...
Spike: ... and Spike gets the other Half-KUDO for the same.
I'm big on the self-sacrifice, and Dracula's telling Buffy how to get around his anti-dusting magic was big of him to save the world from Maloker. Half-KUDO ... it's not THAT big - after all he was on his way to agonizing binding to the Old One, anyway.
Our Characters Can't Impress!
Giles- There a times when new-Giles is irritating. I don't like his constant disrespect and impatience toward Andrew... especially about things which Rupert isn't exactly doing anything about, either. Half-DEMERIT
Rosenberg- Willow doesn't do anything to annoy me.
Summers, Dawn- I liked Dawn throughout, and she doesn't make any wrong moves.
Harris- Xander, when he's not being enthralled, doesn't earn any demerits.
Summers, Buffy- Buffy is another one who sounds really snippy and snide for no real reason. I don't like how she phrases things AT D'Hoffryn without real reason for the disrespect at this time. Half-DEMERIT
Pratt- I've got no problems with Spike.
Ghost-Anya is really grouchy, screechy and annoying - again. Half-DEMERIT
