Ummmmmm........ you mean the 2 parter? I'm watching the order they're in on the DVD, not the order they were played on tele

The two part episode is just a tad slow. It's quite interesting though.

I thought they played the same order as on the TV. Dunno, I didn't really get to see it until it was long gone from TV. I meant the two part one, at any rate. I thought it went at a good pace, considering that it was the episode where everything needs to introduced.

Ah, alrighty then. I finally finished it and got onto the second episode, where they pull the train heist. Now that one was good

Especially at the end.

"Now this is all the money niska gave us. You'll go back and tell him that the deal is off and I don't expect anyone to come follow us"
"He'll find you wherever you go. You're a dead man..." (gets kicked into the ship's engine)
(They sit another guy in front of him)
"Now this is all the money niska gave..."

Laughed my ass off

Oh my god I was just watching an episode of season seven, and Andrew and Johnathon were in the car and they had heard in their dreams, "From Beneath You It Devours," but they heard it in Spanish and translated it to, "It Eats You Starting With Your Bottom."

yeah, I watched that one a couple of weeks ago. I'm watching season 7 over (better the second time around... a lot better). Now up to where Principal Wood has revealed himself to Buffy (no, not like that... ) and Andrew was wearing a wire when talking to the First...

I finished the entire series of FireFly, and have gotten through most of Serenity (the movie)... just got to the part where what-sie dies from the huge spike-dealy through his chest.

The series was awesome, so is the movie, but I'm thinking they needed much more time to go through the back stories of the characters... especially Book, there was something about that preacher dude that was kind of mysterious, and they never said squat about it

Oh, from the series, the joke that made me laugh the most was when the Captain was being held by Niska and he's in a fight with some dude... Zoe and Jayne run in and Zoe's like "No, Jayne, don't shoot, this is something the Captain has to do for himself"

"NO IT'S NOT!!!" he yells.



That was actually an awesome episode. With Book's quote on the bible not being too specific on shoot knee-caps, and Wash's "I've been in a firefight... Well, I was in a fire... Actually, I was fired from a fry-cook opportunity."

Last night I watched the episode 'Lies that my parents told me.' The one where we see William the Bloody and his mom. I liked that episode. It got gross when the mom started coming on to Spike, though

Still, I thought it was a great episode. It showed that Spike is really different from other vampires. Even when he was without a soul he still took care of those near and dear to him.

That wasn't a bad episode at all, especially since that's the one which ended with Buffy telling Giles she didn't need him anymore very dismal. It was that episode right? I can't seem to remember......

I rewatched Season 7 a few months back. Very enjoyable. The finale still wasn't so great (to me), but I realized why I didn't notice Anya bowing out the first time... it happened in the background and took like 2 seconds. I was probably glancing away when I first saw it.

I watched it with Joss's commentaries on too. Not really that exciting. Why is it always only him giving the commentaries? At least get an actor in there with you...

If there's a commentary it's by the person who wrote and/or directed the episode, so it's not always Joss, but you're right, there needs to be an actor in there more often.

I was surprised when Giles took Buffy out for a training session. I thought that he'd stopped being her Watcher a while ago.

I think she always saw him as an unofficial watcher. Especially by that point, when all the watchers but him (and one or two others) were dead.

I wish they'd succeeded in killing Spike Quiet honestly, by the end of Angel and Buffy, you felt like they just should've called both shows "Spike" or the "Wacky Adventures of Spike" Overrated.

I thought he should have died sooner than when he did, but I was glad that he won that fight. Maybe the way it should have ended was that he won the fight, then walked outside and was so disoriented that he didn't realize that it was daylight already

hehehe that would'a been funny. I did like the way he won the fight... granting Robin another chance and all. I also left him around to have that discussion with Andrew about the onion blossoms in the third-to-last episode, which was just too funny for words.

"Tell anyone that we had this conversation and I'll bite you." Man, that was one of the funniest conversations of the season Why did Andrew get most of the funny-cool lines this season?

"Man I'm bored. Episode One bored."

I think its the whole nerd factor. I like the way they got Xander to play off him a bit. Like Andrew calling in to see if they had the new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and Xander wondering if they had 2 copies.

Or the geeky lines like this one:

"Okay, well, if you leave me here alone, I'll do something evil, like burning something or... glueing things together"

I don't think I am going to read any of this right now since I am just starting to watch the series. I am only on the first DVD. The fourth episode. I will have something to contribute later.

Hmmmm this looks like a good one.

I was hooked after the Jack Tripper robot episode. Man, that was great. I capped on my uncle for watching the show. Then I was hooked.

Angel was... pretty good. I think that the series was spread too thin though.

Spike was the man. I wish they had a show about him. Anyone else?

They're in the (very) preliminary stages of making (discussing, really) a Spike movie. I'm not really a fan, myself. He was awesome at first, but by the end of Buffy and Angel, I'd seen too much of him.

The Ted episode (with Jack 'Princess Dandy-lion' Tripper) was a classic, but the comedy got so much better in the 6th season. No one could hate the Trio, they were awesome.

And the show's didn't get its edge until Dawn showed up. Not sure why that is, but she was a mad important element in the show.

I think that Spike got old because of the Angel deal, and he became Angel. It's like they wanted him to stay on and had to come up with new ways to keep him there. Not so good writing post brain chip. I would watch a Spike TV movie but I think it's maybe too late though.

Tripper ep was classic. Did get hella more comedy later on though.

Yeah, they shoulda stuck more comedy into the episode with Ritter. But the thing is, I think the episode worked 'cause of the emotional impact killing someone had on Buffy. That was pretty intense.

You know the dude who wrote the moving "Red Eye" (directed by Wes Craven) was a writer for Buffy, did the Halloween episode (I think it was season 2) and then got his ass canned.

I don't know why I bring that up, but it was a bit of lame trivia I've been bursting to tell.
