Yippee!



How do you like my new icon? catatonic1242 made it for me! I couldn't be more pleased with it...great picture, lovely font...I owe her big time.

And Caroline's finally dropped off the Buffy Series 1 tapes she promised me a year ago, so after I watch these tonight, I'll be done with BtVS and ready to switch over to AtS (from the new series onwards, I really don't care what's gone on before Spike joined the gang).

If you ever find the time, it's worth catching up on Seasons 1-4, if just because they managed some incredible emotional continuity with the characters.

(Plus there are nods and jokes--often visual--that make a lot more sense with the full background.)

(Just to pimp the bestest show ever ever ever, of course. For I love it more than chocolate and fluffy kittens. Possibly more than single malt scotch.)

Well, I thought it might be, and over the last couple of months, I have made a concerted effort to get into it (with db2305's help), but...I just can't find it in me to care for any of the characters. Angel, Cordelia, Doyle, Gunn, Fred - I just don't think they're the slightest bit interesting. Although there were ocasional bits I did enjoy: e.g. I like Wesley making his entrance as the bungling rogue demon hunter; that was funny -- and I do have a fondness for the green demon.

And I must admit that the first two episodes of the new series have been a pleasant surprise - I thought it was going to be a chore sitting though them, but I was wrong. I loved watching Angel's cluelessness, and Harmony was simply hilarious. And when Spike appeared, things really got interesting, so I'm quite happy to watch this series from now on.

Lovely! Pretty icon, pretty JM.

Pre-Spike AtS is good (Doyle! Lilah! Angel-Darla!). Plus Spike did appear in 2 eps (Darla and In the Dark, both S1, I think).

And Lindsey! Don't forget Lindsey!

Even if he did wind up with Evil Hand Issues. :-p

Hee! Yes, Lindsey ... one of the few W&H employees to make it out in one piece (except for the hand ;-) I miss Lindsay ... I'd love to see him make an appearance this season.

Re: Lindsey
Lindsey? Lindsey?? Who he??

Oh bugger - I'm going to have to sit down and watch AtS Season 1-4 after all, aren't I?

Re: Lindsey
First of all, G, I love the new icon! Absolutely wonderful! (I want one too...)

And yes, watch that first season - Lindsey was a fave of mine as well. And Lilah - she is great too. There is just something about those "evil" Wolfram and Hart lawyers... Gee, you should watch the second season too, I think.

Re: Icon
I've seen 'Into the Dark' - loved Spike's soliloquy at the beginning and was strongly reminded of that in the opening sequence of AtS 5.1...but I don't think I've ever seen 'Darla'...

Darla is the AtS companion piece to Fool for Love (so it's AtS S2, not S1, sorry) and provides a lot of background into the lives of the Fanged Four. One thing I didn't realize until I watched it was that Angelus was already souled by the time of the flashbacks in FFL.

Hee! Isn't that the best? I love that speech too - nancy-boy hair gel, magnificent poof - all the good Spike-isms for Angel pretty much come from that ep.

Re: Icon
Wait a minute...is 'Darla' the ep where we get to hear what a truly horrific supposedly Irish accent Liam used on the last night of his here-to-fore lager-loutish mortal existence? In that case, I have seen it!

And yes, I do remember my surprise at finding out that Angel had already been cursed while gallivanting around China with his 'family' at the time of the Boxer Rebellion. Although it does explain his churlishness to some extent.

Re: Icon
Forgot to say: I love your icon, too -- but what's that crinkly bit on his neck in the third frame? It's driving me mad rying to find an explanation for it!

Loose flesh on his neck. You have to remember the poor boy's ::whisper:: 41 ::whisper:: now so ...
Not really -- it's just because of the way he's twisting his head around ;-)

Re: Icon
Oh yes, the man's virtually an OAP and should be eligible for a buspass soon! Seriously though, it looked like something a bit more interesting than that -- like someone had taken a pen and drawn all kinds of curly-wurlies on his skin...which led me to daydream about how much I'd like to spend a hour or two bodypainting JM...::sigh::

:-) I think that's from an ep in BtVS S2 -- Becoming Part II, I think. Here's the transcript for Darla.

Ah, right you are. I haven't seen it, then.

The icon is quite lickable, but then it is JM.

I found a fair bit of AtS quite gruelling. It picked up a bit at the end of season two and has its moments, but I only liked Wesley. Not now though!
