    Buffy Season 8 Character Arc: Slayer Gatherer to Slayer Abjured It is interesting to see the transition from TV to Comics. The things that were strengths in the show (BIG OL’ ROUSING SPEECHES! for one) would fall flat in a comic. And they know it and play with it. The main story picks up towards

    Season 7 Character Arc: Slayer Teacher to Slayer Master Slow to start, but then ALL PLOT, ALL THE TIME! While there are aspects of this season that I don’t care for, and at times it feels like they had four different plots planned out and they realized they had only one season left so they

But you should

    Season 4 Character Arc: Fish out of Water to Rebel with a Cause Setting: UC Sunnydale Plotwise the beginning of the season isn’t my fave. On one hand college! And Spike! On the other hand Riley never really did it for me. Yeah, I’m not really for the AW SHUCKS, MA’AM types. At least not
