Season 5 is pretty good so far.
It is summer so I am doing some independent contracting- copy-editing, proof-reading and the like, (you can always tell when I am doing this because I blog- my way of taking a break from squinting at layouts) and so far I have to stop working to concentrate on the show several times. This was not often the case with Season 4, although “Hush” and the dream sequence Season Finale were highpoints.
Cool v. Uncool status:
Buffy’s sister- uncool
Giles’s new car- cool
Xander tired of being everyone’s ‘bitch’- cool
Riley- still uncool
Buffy in pink leather pants- cool
Spike only having cameos- uncool
My still missing the bitchy, whiny, shallow, obnoxious, and insufferable Cordelia (BEST. BUFFY. CHARACTER. EVER. Spike and Drusilla are a close second) even though she has been gone a season- uncool.
Xander’s Demonic girlfriend- very cool
Me not only watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer but blogging about it the day after my 35th birthday- a pathetic cry for help.
*** UPDATE ***
No spoilers, you rascally Buffy-luvin’ bastiches!
I am only at the beginning of season 5, and there are lots of people who aren’t even there yet. So, if you will, just general effusive praise for the series, please…
