30 Days of Buffy!! Days 10 and 11

Day 10: Least Favorite Season
Season 5.  Ok, so we got Dawn, and she is a great addition, and we got Buffy's death, but I really really dislike Glory.  She is the most irritating character ever.  She's got no depth, no redeemable qualities and to be frank, she's a pretty shit god.

This meant I spent a lot of season 5 getting very annoyed.  There are good bits in there, Amber Benson did great with Tara getting her brainmind eaten, and Joyce dying was unbelievably sad.  But, when I think of season 5 I think of Glory and a I cringe.

Day 11: Least Favorite Romance
Buffy and Angel.  I hate Angel.  Their relationship didn't make sense.  I don't hold with this pre-destined made for each other nonsense, so their falling in love felt like a plot device and not something natural.  I never believed in them together.

I love season 5! Spike becomes part of the Scooby gang and we get more intricate plots. Buffy really goes through a world of crap this season, losing her boyfriend, her mom and her schooling. So you can't blame her for dying.

Here here on the Buffy and Angel. Ugh. It was a good metaphor (sleep with a guy and he turns into a monster), but that was about it.

Oh I don't blame Buffy for dyng, and in fact I think that was one of the best done parts of the season. it proved she was a hero (again).

I just rilly rilly dislike Glory. She taints all the good bits for me.
