So bassically the show should put two people majority would not even think of as pairing, together and hope that everyone starts liking them because of that?
Or them waking up in YET ANOTHER DIFFERENT ISLAND during the storm (yes, i am still angry at the stupid ending of persons unknown).
But, still all things considered, the whole " and they all died eventually" ending was way too depressing, not to mention the explanation came out of nowhere. I pretty much prefer BSG's ending to that, even though everyone(eventually) died there too. Purely because, even though both series contained similar levels of what-the-hell-is-going-on stuff, this ending actually felt like a real epilogue summing up certain messages of the show instead of a long scene of them walking through the door, like lost's.
Sure if you consider " and they all died happily" ending as happy...
Anyway, S1 Damon was good. S2 Damon? reactions alternating between "he is decent", "that was awesome" and "someone punch that crying rapist bastard in the face"
but if people actually saw them like that,they might like them
And why the hell should THAT affect what the show does?
It could be called 'constructive criticism' if there were some things ppl didn't like or areas they felt needed improvement..... but its like ppl have problems with EVERYTHING on TVD..... And even if there r some things they do like they think it will get ruined on the show anyway....
Who said that criticism has to be balanced with praise? This is not a school or kindergarten where teachers would say a ton of praise on how great your stuff is to be able to add a bit of criticism. If there's a problem people do not like, they comment on it.
In this case S2 made sure that "some things" equal " a lot" . S1 had " some things" people did not liek or felt needed improvement. S2 has A LOT of things people did not like and feel it needed improvement and overall is worse and has less rewatch-value than s1.
And yes, its not that crazy to make an asumption based on the current road the show took, that things might go worse. After all, none of the writing staff or producers have shown any sort of regard towards the criticism show gets nor any sort of acknowledgment that there's something wrong with the show and seem to live in their own little worlds of praise and awesomeness.
As for ratings and viewerships, if the drop continues at the pace it does now, by s3 midseason, it will no longer be "most popular on cw". Look at Heroes. It dropped from huge viewership to barelly a few million in matter of a season. Why? Because it started to suck and writers ignored all the flaws and criticism instead of continuing to try to please the fangirls.
PS Last Dance was the worst episode of Season3 so over hyped but everything fell flat!!!!!
Entire set of episodes from House GUest to As I lay dying have been the worst episodes of the season. Last Dance was badly directed and all but the idea would have been decent if they actually let Bonnie die. Well, they asspulled her to life and the episode went to crap.
Ofcause it depends what each person put into the word. I say that cruelty would be Faith toturing Wesley in Angel, or Angel toturing Giles in BtVS. That i would call cruelty.
No, that's sadism and buffy did torture someone and seemed to quite enjoy it. There's about a dozen of cases where her behavior is downright cruel.
I don't think Buffy enjoys inflicting pain and humaliation on others.
She enjoys both inflicting and receiving pain(thus one could say she is both sadistic and masochistic). Same with Faith(thats why the two can't stand two minutes without punching each other into face). The show has shown multiple times that Buffy enjoys being the dominant figure over other people, having the power to make decisions over them or to inflict harm. Heck, her whole job that is like a drug to her is all about inflicting pain, not to mention that her idea of relaxation is beating up somebody. And then we have the violent relationship between her and spike and they surelly both enjoyed beating up each other a lot, among other things.
What JP says is always inflated beyond reasoning and she talks of most obvious things as most shocking and best. I am not 100% betting its that damn necklace.
Weren't this a sarcastic comment?(I don't remember the actual scene, but it sounds like a sarcastic comment.
Yes it was sarcastic. Bassically Buffy had a huge temper tantrum on how out-of-line Faith is to enjoy the whole job of killing vamps and how bad it is for Faith to actually enjoy beating them up...
I have never, and probably will never think of cruelty as being something Buffy does. She might be capable of it, but never exercise it.
S2 premiere. S2 Ford. S3 Faith stuff. Her dominant treatment of Spike. "you are benath me" . the whole "let's brainwash a couple of my doubles so they can die from assassination attempts attempted upon me" stuff from comics and so on and so on and so on. She might not excercise it as much because that seriously does not fit the hero-image she wants to have, but she is very expert on cruel behavior. Buffy, just as Faith, is deeply sadistic person inside. :)
Unexpected to hear this. You people actually expect it to happen? Meaning you will be disappointet when it dosen't?
At this point i would be surprised on if this show lasts that long. if they continue loosing viewers at the rate they are loosing, the end of 4th season would have less than million viewers, cue death of the show.
And of course they won' tbe disappointed. They will jump on another absurd ship like Caroline/Alaric, Katherine/Alaric or Jenna'sCorpse/Matt'sCorpse or Damon/ThatExtraWhoPassedThroughthesceneinepisode2of3rdseason.
