Buffy is great.

Fav episode is the one at the end of series 3 (I think) where the mayor turns into a demon. Fav ever tv moment when suddenley all the students take off their gowns and have weapons underneath-very unexpected. great bit in that ep when Angel and some other guys run at the vampires and Weasley gets knocked over. And then when xander shouts hand to hand and all the students run at the vampires. All the while great music playing.

Many many other great eps. I'll think of some good quotes later.

I have had a two dreams recently where I could hear songs from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Buffy the Musical - Once More, With Feeling. This has prompted me to post my two favourite songs from this episode. On reflection, I thought they belonged here as opposed to the lyrics thread.

Going Through The Motions

Buffy
Every single night
The same arrangement
I go out and fight the fight
Still I always feel
This strange estrangement
Nothing here is real
Nothing here is right
I've been making shows of trading blows
Just hoping no one knows
That I've been
Going through the motions
Walking through the part
Nothing seems to penetrate my heart
I was always brave
And kind of righteous
Now I find I'm wavering
Crawl out of your grave
You find this fight just
Doesn't mean a thing

Vampire
She ain't got that swing
Buffy
Thanks for noticing

Demons and Vampires
She does pretty well with friends from hell
But lately we can tell
That she's just
Going through the motions
Faking it somehow
Demon
She's not even half the girl she...OW..
Buffy
Will I stay this way forever
Sleepwalk through my life's endeavor

Handsome Young Victim Man
How can I repay...

Buffy
..Whatever
I don't want to be
Going through the motions
Losing all my drive
I can't even see if this is really me
And I just want to be
Alive.


Rest in Peace sung by Spike (James Marsters)
I died
So many years ago
And you can make me feel
Like it isn't so
But why you come to be with me
I think I finally know
You're stared
Ashamed of what you feel
And you can't tell the ones you love
You know they couldn't deal
But whisper in a dead man's ear
That doesn't make it real
That's great
But I don't wanna play
'cause being near you touches me
More than I can say
And since I'm only dead to you
I'm saying stay away
And let me rest in peace.
Let me rest in peace
Let me get some sleep
Let me take my love and bury it
In a hole six foot deep
I can lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
So let me rest in peace.
You know
You've got a willing slave
And you just love to play the thought
That you might misbehave
But til you do I'm telling you
Stop visiting my grave
And let me rest in peace.
I know I should go
But I follow you like a man possessed
There's a traitor here beneath my breast
And it hurts me more than you're ever guessed
If my heart could beat it would break my chest
But I can see you're unimpressed
So leave me be and let me rest in peace.
Let me get some sleep Let me take my love and bury it
In a hole six foot deep
I can lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
So let me rest in peace
Why won't you
Let me rest in peace

Well, Buffy is pretty poor in my opinion (and it so completely is aimed at young teens). Dr. Who might be pretty cool if I ever watched that. They have some specially written animated episodes on the BBC website if anyone's interested, and there will be a full new series on TV in 2005. I'm a fan of weird british comedy shows. Like The Fast Show, and Little Britain (v. good). Also...

MONKEY DUST!

Monkey Dust is soooo cool.

I like almost all sci-fi, but when it becomes weird like buffy did i don't like it as much and the fact that it is rarely shown on tv in Melbourne, even when it is it is at 11:30 or something, too late for me on school nights and for me it is not good enough to tape.

I also like all the star treks well those that i have seen (i have not seen the original series, but that one with deep space nine going back in time to them was good.)

I like futurama, simpsons, farscape, stargate, seven days (time travel series short lived), sliders, and many movies.

I also enjoy watching british comedy, i find that american comedy is getting a little too predictable like friends. Some US is ok, but some is just copying the same old story line, you know: problem, mess ups fixing problem, problem solved. Why can't there just be a program that doesn't solve the problem? This is just something i would like to see, i still like programs that follow the usual, but not as much as new, inventive shows.

BTW I don't know if someone has already mentioned this but Dr Who is showing everything (except maybe movies)on ABC tv in Aust. I watched the first few episodes and i found that they were a little slow moving and also a bit predictable. The set is ok for its day, but when there is a flame in the scene and it makes the film look as if it was burnt can't they do anything about it? You will know what i mean if you saw them. I plan to watch later series because my parents say it will get better. I do remember a movie that was good, so there is still hope. I wonder how people will react to these tv shows in another ~40 years.

ALEX At last we agree on something. The one thing you mentioned that I didn't really get into is farscape. I watched all the first series incase it improved but it never really caught on for me. Futurama and Simpsons are good aswell. BTW there is a cartoon thread lurking somewhere you may want to read that aswell. wiske

Yes. I can understand how farscape does not appeal to everyone, but i like it. And i might read but not post in the cartoon thread, it's probably finished long ago.

My current favorite TV show is the O'Reilly Factor. It's fun to watch because O'Reilly is always on a crusade to correct the injustices of society.

The Holy Cartoon Trinity: The Simpsons, Futurama, and Family Guy.
How come no one has mentioned Family Guy?!?! I love that show! Plus, ITS COMING BACK! Jan. 2005 there gonna start realesing new Family Guys since its DVD did so well. 8D 8D 8D
Can't wait!

Buffy's okay I guess, and I'm gonna have to agree its aimed at younge teens. Still, no where near the Simps, Futurama, or Family Guy wink

I concur. Very dark and surreal, yet with out saacrificing laughs, of which there were plenty. I loved the man wrongly convicted of murder who couldn't adjust to modern life. Doesn't sound funny, you had to see it, it was great.

At least the first series was. I haven't watched the second yet as I haven't got access to a TV at the moment. This has also prevented me from watching the last series of Buffy. I think people need to lighten up about that, the monsters are not meant to be realistic, it's meant to be funny, you get sharp dialogue and decent chaaracter development interspersed with laughable fight scenes for light relief, and its a winning formula.

Nobody has mentioned spaced yet so I shall do so...

No one's mentioned Frasier which was the spin off from Cheers. The Niles character was brilliant in it.

Buffy has now ended... I'll have to start replaying the series on the video recorder. I'm waiting patiently for the terrestial channel to continue the current Angel series....they left it half way through and are not showing it until April. cry
