    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.
