This past week I've been watching a lot of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.  I've watched the complete first two seasons and about 6 episodes of season three.  After repeated watchings, it is definitely easier to pick the good episodes from the not-so-good.  In season one, my favorite episodes are "The Pack" and "The Puppet Show."  The former for hyena-Xander and the eating of Principal Flutie and the latter because I love how the opposite of what you expect is true and the excellent "Oedipus" performance by Buffy, Willow and Xander at the end.  I tend to like the stand alone episodes in the early seasons better than the ones focusing on the Big Bad.  In season two, I am partial to "School Hard" (introduction to Spike and Drusilla, yay!), "Ted," and "Go Fish."  Season two is not my favorite season.  I think there is too much Buffy and Angel angst, but then I was never a big Buffy/Angel shipper.  Season three is my all-time favorite season with my all-time favorite episode, "Band Candy."  I just love watching the adults act like teenagers and can only imagine how much fun they had shooting that episode.  I love when Joyce is looking at the coat in the shop window and says, "It's soooo Juice Newton!"  I was also a major Joyce/Giles shipper after seeing the episode.  

I'm not a big reviewer-type person.  I've just been having some thoughts about Buffy and felt like sharing.  

In other news, I have officially verified that Saffy is the eater of the birdseed as I caught her red-pawed.  She was chewing on a sunflower seed with millet stuck to her nose.  It was very cute.

Patrick is home, so I am very happy!  Have a great weekend.

haha Too bad you didn't get a picture, that sounds adorable!

Now there's a show I haven't thought about in a while. I'll have to remember that next time I'm looking for something to watch. Buffy/Spike was always my favorite pairing. ^_^

Buffy and Spike were my favorite too. I thought he understood her better than Angel and I thought his redemption arc was wonderful compared to Angel's. He consciously tried to be a better man for her as opposed to being cursed into it. . .
