    Day 16: Seeing Red. I know, that it is difficult watching it, but I believe it to be a brilliant, fantastic, outstanding piece of tv-show filming.

    Day 16 - Episode you like that everyone else hates Well, I don't think there's any episode that I like that everyone or the majority of people hate, but yeah, Seeing Red is controversial and hated by quite a few people because of the things that happen in it, but it is a brilliant episode.
    I also find Beauty and the Beasts to be very underrated.

    Day 16: Bad Eggs isn’t that bad, I think they vampire cowboys are kinda funny, and I love the ending because of the way Buffy looks after she comes out of the ummm... female part monster.

    Day 17 - Character you relate to the most - Rupert Giles. I worked in libraries, been a Montessori teacher, and spent a fair amount of life taking in teens who need an adult. We are also close in age, though he's a touch older than I am.

    Day 17 - Character you relate to the most - Buffy Summers. Although I'm not a vampire slayer, as far as I'm aware.

    BTW, the image from the first post has disappeared. We need a list.

    Thanks for that.

    I wonder if we should first decide which episodes we consider to be Willow-centric, Xander-centric or Spike-centric? Apart from the very few that are obvious, like The Zeppo or Fool for Love.

    Day 17 There isn't a straight forward answer to this for me although I'm sure at times I'd probably try to pick just one. There are aspects of what Buffy has gone through that resonate with me especially, but also William/Spike as well. I'd say I have some traits that are very like Spike, but also Giles and there's a bit of Willow in me at times. I think I can be a bit 'Angel' as well if I'm honest. I'm not going to be specific about what aspects, but these are they.

    We could, but isn't there a chance that someone might pick one that is a bit unusual if we don't specify??

    Day 17: Character in BtVS you relate to the most?


    I don't relate to any single character: I'm probably a combination of Buffy, Giles, Anya, Spike, and Angel.


    If I had to choose one character... Buffy?

    Day 17: Character in BtVS you relate to the most? Later seasons Xander and early seasons Willow. When I was in high school, I was literally Willow. Shy, bookworm, fanfic writer and had my own Cordelia. As I grew older, I started to relate to Xander of the later seasons more. I feel more accomplished and valued at work than with my family and I'm a good listener and good at making others feel good about themselves.

    Day 16 - Episode you like that everyone else hates Oh I have a bunch! I will never understood why people hate Ted as it's one of my favourite episodes to rewatch. I also think a lot of the MotW episodes such as Inca Mummy Girl, Reptile Boy and Bad Eggs are all perfectly enjoyable and get an unfair reputation. But I'd probably say that Where the Wild Things Are is the one episode that I really enjoy that a lot of people seem to hate. It has so many great scenes.

    Day 17: Character in BtVS you relate to the most? Buffy. I can relate to her on so many levels from her 'coming out' scene in Becoming ("Do you think I chose to be like this? Do you have any idea how lonely it is? How dangerous!?") to her depression in Season 6 ("I don't know. I just, I feel like I'm spending all of my time trying to be okay, so they don't worry. It's exhausting") and I definitely relate to the conflict she has about loving and cherishing her friends but also feeling disconnected from them as well. I've also always kind of related to how she straddled the line between Cordelia/being a Scooby in terms of her interests/her past etc.

    Day 17: I can`t name Buffy, because her strength and her warrior attitude is something, that I might find awesome, but has very little to do with who or what I am. I admire her for it, but it isn`t me.

    But I can really relate to Tara. She is shy and insecure but at the same time she can stand her ground if it really matters to her.

    day 17 I relate to different things in different characters. I think it's changing over the years too. Some how I seem to have grown up over the 20 years.


    I like who I am when Im with him. I like who we are together.

    Late to the party here:

    Favourite season - S6 to S7, followed closely by S2 and S5 jointly. Whilst S3 was wonderfully consistent in terms of episodes and overall storytelling, I felt the lack of Spike. S4 to me was uneven. S1 I don't remember too clearly. I'll have to revert to it before the next round of reviews, however, as it all needs placing in context.

    Favourite episode - tricky one. For dramatic impact I don't think many surpass some of the S2 episodes. But because of my personal preferences I'd have to go with FFL, Crush, Dead Things, Seeing Red (yes, sorry, but I think it's fantastic and it has one of my all time fave scenes, Clem and Spike), BY and LMPTM. Please don't ask me to pick. Also Chosen.
    You know what I am. You've always known. You come to me all the same.

    Day 18 - character who didn't get enough screen time Maybe Darla, who was so subservient to The Master and then was killed too soon. She could have been a BB all on her own. I would have loved Gwendolyn Post to have a three episode arc. More Ethan Rayne, Harmony, Clem . . . so many characters I would have liked to see more of, but if I'm being honest, it's Spike. I'd have loved even more Spike, especially in S3, but throughout the whole show

    Day 18 - character who didn't get enough screen time Xander, Willow, Giles and Dawn in S7. I understand that NB was having problems during S7, but I would have preferred instead of wasting a whole episode on Xander dating a demon again (First Date) that it was used to further develop Xander's character to more interesting directions. I would have liked to see more focus on those characters after Empty Places. More focus on Giles' mental state after the council's explosion and how he felt about losing all those people he knew and worked with.
