So I was telling Gate that I was literally dying without the board because we've watched probably eight or nine Buffy episodes since I last posted and I needed to dish!
One of the reasons I missed the board this week was that I just knew that as you got into S5 you'd pick up the viewing pace and I wanted to hear your reactions!

First off, one of my FAVE eppies was Crush, the one where Spike finally declares his love to a repulsed and unbelieving Buffy. I had to watch that one twice.
One of my favorite episodes. Druscilla is just always awesome.

I just love how Spike cons Buffy into a "date" and her reaction (((looking up the line...)))

Buffy: What is this? The late-night stakeout, the bogus suspects, the flask! Is this a date?
Spike: A d... please! A date? You are completely off your bird! I mean— (hopefully) Do you want it to be?

We are still SHOCKED that they killed off Joyce.
Joss is the master of angst and pain. This is on most fans' top 3 or 4 list. Even more than Buffy, Willow, Xander, Dawn grief, I love Anya's grief. I expected the Scoobies to be shattered, but Anya's confusion and pain was what hit me. I cry very time she makes her speech

Anya (crying): "But I don't understand! I don't understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she's, there's just a body, and I don't understand why she just can't get back in it and not be dead anymore! It's stupid! It's mortal and stupid! And, and Xander's crying and not talking, and, and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she'll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why. (She puts her hand over her face, crying.)"

Tonight we watched 'Intervention' with Spike and his 'Buffybot'.
Love love LOVE the Buffybot. I think SMG doesn't get enough credit for this dual portrayal. Especially in S6.
