ladyofjest: (buffy: be strong)
My workplace has switched to a 24-hour model, so I've been scheduled for a 4 AM - 8 AM shift this week. I barely got any sleep before having to get up and log on; I'm just thankful that I can do this work from home, on my couch, in my pajamas.

Luckily, there's not much work to be done in the wee hours. This is an excellent thing as I don't have too terribly much brain to go around right now; instead, I have decided to begin rewatching Buffy the Vampire Slayer (inspired by my recent re-reading of the S8 comics so that I can start catching up - I'm about 4 collections behind).

In honor of my rewatch, I'll be posting my Buffy analyses begun in 2005: some of them are already up at Dreamwidth, but I haven't yet posted them here. Let's start with an analysis of the 80's movie, shall we?

Vampire flicks? Kinda awesome. )

Day 30 - Saddest character death

There are a couple that have deeply affected me: I cried pretty hard over spoiler ) in Battlestar Galactica; it was just so sudden and largely inexplicable and she was so lost. I also spent some time crying over spoiler ) in Angel, and I'd just like to say Joss Whedon is an asshole who really likes to milk character deaths for maximum pain. In keeping with that, spoiler )'s death in Buffy the Vampire Slayer was also deeply affecting. (As was spoiler )'s death - possibly the most affecting of all, but it was also the only correct and true conclusion to S5. Plus, spoiler ).)

However, when I tried to determine which one had been the worst, the saddest, and the most infuriating, there was really only one answer:

Spoilers for Lost. )

Quixote agrees with me, but wanted to mention another death that affected him deeply and when he was very young:

Spoilers for Classic Who. )

30 Days of TV: The List )
