My expectations were skyhigh when we went to see it opening weekend (and yes, we took my parents with us to see it too) and they were blown out of the water. Since you already know what happens, I can tell you that watching it is that much more powerful and angst-loaded.

I've followed him to Angel, and was there to be outraged when FOX screwed over Firefly before it ever got a chance, and was in the theaters to see Serenity! Made hubby watch all seasons of Buffy on DVD with me and he became a huge fan and then we went to a Buffy Sing-A-Long here at the Alamo Drafthouse. : P I even watched Dollhouse to the very end, even though it wasn't my favorite. I was never into Buffy or Angel, so I can't speak to that, but for me the deaths in Avengers, Dollhouse, and Serenity, while upsetting, just went to show that Joss doesn't mess around when it comes to high stakes like other shows do. @Anna Bowling: You simply must watch the episode called "Passion," #17 in Season 2 of Buffy (it might be two parts). @Lori A, Joss being a Sondheim fan has put an extra spring in my step.

When it was announced that JW was doing The Avengers I was like OH MY GOD THIS IS GENIUS - He can do ensemble cast dialog like NOBODY ELSE! Crazy supernatural story lines should have real consequences or else you'll stop caring, like I already had when Alaric got killed off for the millionth (final? It is the best of so many fabulous episodes and stories, easily the saddest, most unnerving and emotional. I would have, too, except that as afraid I wouldn't be able to get that "Passion.

In the Buffy, Season 8 and Season 9 comics, Xander is currently dating Buffy’s often troublesome younger sister Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg…but, you know, in picture form), but it seems doubtful the union can possibly last. Buffy’s other BFF, Willow (Alyson Hannigan), lost her first great love, Oz (Seth Green), to first her cheating ways, and then his cheating ways—or, more specifically, werewolfish ways—and then eventually to her lesbian ways.

Her second love, Tara (Amber Benson) she lost due to a stray bullet—which sent her over the edge and made her almost destroy the world, after flaying a guy alive; yeah, do not piss off a redhead.

(Really, dude should have stayed in Sunnydale.) And as for what has happened with Buffy and Angel in comic book form…as you can probably imagine, things did not Go Well.

Speaking of Angel and Cordelia, though…a while back, H&H television maven Heather Waters discussed the plethora of TV couples who came out of nowhere to win over the hearts of viewers everywhere, even becoming, in some instances, the very reason we would then tune in.A Genre Refugee is a Stock Character from some genre who appears in a story that is in no other way part of that genre.The character is probably Wrong Genre Savvy, or may be the cause of wrong genre savviness in others.Be they the eponymous stars of their shows, parts of a strong ensemble, trusty sidekicks or mere bit players, nary a single character has been able to remain not-single for very long under his ruthless gaze. Horrible’s (Neil Patrick Harris) love, Penny (Felicia Day), was killed in a freak Death Ray incident.At the end of Dollhouse, Paul (Tahmoh Penikett), whose longtime crush on Caroline/Echo (Eliza Dushku) looked to have been fulfilled at last, died in a hail of bullets, because apparently he forgot how to duck.Yet all of this is but a drop in the ocean compared to what occurred on Whedon’s first show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
