I meant to make a big fancy-ass post detailing my Thoughts on seasons 1-4 of Buffy and the last few eps of Gossip Girl, which I finally got around to seeing. (You might think, from reading this, that my life is massively busy and intense. You would be wrong.) In fact, my Thoughts can be quite easily distilled into a few points. Thoughtlettes, if you will.


Buffy
Angel and his emopain need to DIAF. The only time he was interesting was during that "Dude, Where's My Soul?" plot cycle. I don't like his backstory, either, especially compared to Spike's. WHY IS RANDOMLY IRISH?
I find it deeply, deeply difficult to become invested in Buffy's relationships. Riley is soooooo booooooring, in fact I died of boredom just typing his name.
Anya and Spike are the BEST characters.
My favourite finale so far was season three's. Whoosh! Gowns and mortars off, daggers out!
Late nineties, yes, but the couching of Tara and Willow's relationships in coy Victoriana terms pissed me off mightily.
THE FASHIONS, OH GOD, MY EYES. One time, Buffy wears TIE-DYED BROWN PANTS.



Gossip Girl
CHUCK. CHUCK. CHUCK.
What, you wanted coherence?
'I HAD A SCRAPBOOK TOO.'
There you go.



17 Again
WHAT. A. DREADFUL. FILM.
They should have just made a montage of Zefron's pecs and saved us all the trouble of sitting through the hot mess that was the actual film. What girl ever swoons at the idea of a SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD GUY rhapsodising over babies? There are probably more LotR-style nerds than 'normal' people nowadays, so I doubt Headmistress Lady needed to cast her net so wide. Also, shouldn't it be Elvish, not Elf?

I think I would have liked it better if he dumped his pregnant gf and got to know her again after an equally unfulfilling life. Or if Chandler Bing stayed Zac Efron. I know I'd take that option if I were Chandler Bing.


Anyone want to burble with/at me? Without spoiling the other seasons of Buffy, please!

BUT THAT'S JUST IT. They go around in miniskirts in daytime and then big ol' coats for night patrol! The last ep I watched, Buffy was wearing a FUR-TRIMMED ANORAK. Sense, show no has it. D:

Well, actually, California weather can be like that: warm in the daytime and downright freezing at night. I was in LA last March and got caught in one of those really windy, chilly nights with just a light jacket because it was perfectly warm, comfortable in short sleeves that day.

I was just so puzzled that Buffy wore a turtleneck sweater, a huge coat and GLOVES into the desert. There goes my dream that it's never cold in California. *tear*

Also, would it kill girlfriend to wear a bra occasionally?!
