What a sap I am

I've only watched the special features on Disc 6 of S5 Angel, and my eyes are leaking, how pathetic is that - I really do miss my shows.  Tomorrow I think I might start an attempt at a serious essay delving into why Buffy and Angel 'hooked' me, because I think I really need to write it, if only for me.
  • Current Mood: sad sad
I haven't finished my AtS DVDs yet, my feelings about S5 are still kinda mixed, but I love the shows as a whole - if that made any sense. ;-)

Looking forward to the essay!
Certainly there are elements of S5 that don't feel right to me - Spike's accent and behaviour is all over the place in the first few episodes for example, but from about "Lineage" on, the season really is excellent. I'm also one of the few who loved AtS S4, but I think it is a wonderful metaphor for American religiosity, and I think that is much clearer to soemone who comes from a more secular country such as Australia.
The discussions of the last few days have me reviving/re-energising/re-acquainting with my love for the Jossverse. I know why I started watching Buffy, but what kept me watching, what was it about the show that made me 'obsessed', why am I still enchanted by it, why do I feel as if I've lost something - these are things I feel that I need to enunciate.

Oh my mother-in-law, I found her but it's been a long couple of days - dealing with police, insurance companies, HER. Today she decided she needed a "living will", so she doesn't end up like Terry Shiavo(??) - coupled with PMS, it's been a hell of a week. Maybe that's why I'm retreating to my Buffy/Angel world ...
On Angel s5 (which I agree with you started a bit weak, and had some dud eps, but ended real strong): I'd be happy to 'beta' you.

On living wills, I'm going to post a living will on my lj.
