    S7 is watchable but Id recommend skipping Episode 10 to 15 in which basically nothing happens. The Potentials, (shudder) sit around Buffys house while the First pops up and makes a threat which the cast then sell like it's the worst thing ever then Buffy gives a speech and that's pretty much it for those episodes. Not till 16 does something happen and even then it's about Andrew, who I despise almost as much as the Potentials but who others might like.

    I don't despise Andrew, but I seriously have no idea why Joss and co were so obssed with him. I get kinda get why he was turned into a Xander replacement for season 7 because of Nicks 'health' issues, but lord, he did grate on me.

    That and Joss loved Tom Lenk is all I can think of.

    Then he was brought back for Angel S5. Apparently Giles made him a Watcher ... Wait What

    I'm still not sure why Angel wasn't throttling him in The Girl In Question either, considering his double cross in Damage ?

    As for his role in the comics and him drugging Buffy and replacing her with a Robot the least said the better.

    I'm not a S7 fan, but I'd much rather watch a S7 review by someone who loves the season than someone who hates it, so I really hope he grows to love the season eventually.

    The same thing happened when it aired. TWoP was unreadable.

    I contend the show never jumped any sharks, however--perhaps there's a term for it--S6 marked a turn when many stopped watching the show for what happens and only watched to see what they want to happen. If it didn't, then it sucked. Folks were hating on those episodes from the previews. Maybe it's a final season thing.

    I remember reading the TWoP recaps. They were tedious. The only character the viewers liked was Giles. They simply hated everything and everybody. I don't enjoy reading and listening to those kinds of reviews anymore.

    To be fair, I used to be as sour about S7, and made it absolutely clear that I despise the season. Now... it just feels tiring. I'd rather find the positive.

    It was some interesting views and think its great that they are so enthused about it. Discussing a TV show they enjoy it's all good

    Don't think it was his best to be honest. Ian sounds snappy and almost pefunctionary. Focus is mainly on the poem and Buffys death in the Gift and very little about the episode itself.

    I honestly don't blame him. It was a very bad episode and such a wasted opportunity to introduce Dracula to the story. I much prefer Comics Dracula. To be fair though I didn't listen to this one yet.

    I agree, and his 'obsession' with Riley is really getting real old now. I left a comment hinting as such and got an abrupt reply. I hope to god the rest of his season 5 vids don't turn out like this one.

    Thats If I live long enough to see them, because his vid making schedule means It's going to take bloody ages for him to get through them.

    Hm. Ian gave me gossebumps when he recited the Frost poem at the beginning but he didn't explain how it is connected to this episode.

    I hate this episode because Dracula is faaaaaar to pale in the face. Also, the greasy hair - ewwwww. It makes him look so ridiculous. And for me it drags down the whole epiosde. Ian couldn't make anything better out of it because it's simply not there to begin with. So, considering the ridiculous material he had to begin with he made the best one could out of it, imho.

    I never thought It was ridiculous. Yes I didn't think much of the bloke playing Dracula, but there was so much comedy gold in this one and of course the ending was great.

    He said he liked it but did nothing to elaborate why though

    Agree with what everyone has said so far, the Frost poem was the best thing about this review but Ian didn't really link it to the episode very convincingly. It is, imo, the worst opening episode of any season, but he's right, the openers are usually not the best of episodes. He spent too long recapping, which usually means he doesn't have much to say about the actual content.

    Very much agree with Sosa lola, ComicDracula is the superior Dracula, by miles

    Yeah I saw that response to your post. A bit passive aggressive weirdness that. What does it even mean ?
