  1. I was kinda hoping this 20th year anniversary thing would maybe lead to another soundtrack with unreleased music from the show (hello Thomas Wander, composer of Buffy seasons five and six), but so far I have been fairly disappointed in the lack of new cool merchandise. I mean, there was a little bit that they put out there, but I wasn't that impressed soooo far.
  2. Ugh, I only read season 8 and a little bit of season 9 and the comics are pretty horrible. The storylines kind of become something that would suit Charmed more than Buffy and also prove that budget restrictions are sometimes an advantage rather than a disadvantage. Sometimes I still think about going back to the comics though, but it's an entirely different medium and not what the show was. (I am also bothered by all the character resurrections that the comics do, which makes death more meaningless in that universe)
  3. I also could have lived with it if they had never brought back Jonathan after season three. I kind of liked his final scenes in Graduation Day Part Two better than anything that followed after.
  4. I think Glory's and Ben's backstory would have been interesting to explore more.
  5. I feel like Lie to Me is one of the most underrated episodes of Buffy. The final scene with Buffy and Giles at the grave was amazing.
  6. I don't generally have a problem with gay actors playing straight characters, I thought NPH was believable as Barney, but I do see John Barrowman and NPH primarily as gay actors now whenever I see them, so their real-life-personalities somewhat bleed into the perception that I have of them when I see them on screen, but TV is about spending disbelief anyway, so it doesn't really change at how I look at the characters they play. Meanwhile, while I do know that Matthew Bomer is gay, I don't really look at him as a gay actor even. So, I think a lot of it is connected with how we're brought up, with our ideas of what a leading man on television should be like, so if there is an actor who checks all the "stereotypical masculinity" boxes or who got offered a lot of leading male parts/heartthrob parts, then his real-life sexuality doesn't really play into the equation as much (or even gets erased somewhat). Meanwhile, I totally believe Michael C. Hall as either a straight or a gay man, which is irritating, because I certainly don't look at him the same way I do look at NPH and am like "yup, definitely straight". That's how I always felt about coming out and being gay, but it has also led to some weird situations where I would like go out with a girl from college for drinks and she'd be like "I kinda of like you, what do you think?" What I really hate about coming out is that you never stop coming out unless you mention you're gay all the time, to everyone you ever meet, but that's also kind of exhausting and the thing is you don't want to be defined by just your sexuality. I do kind of like the idea of a coming out by just bringing your significant other and it not having to be something to be addressed though. What are your favorite LGTBQ stories on TV?
  7. Oh yeah, I forgot about that one. Then it's even more ridiculous that his management pulled him out when they let him play 'gay' before (even though it was as a child).
  8. I just want the show to continue to feel personal. I don't really care as much about the villains as I care about the demons that Jessica is struggling with and I hope for the show to introduce a few new interesting supporting characters that Jessica can interact with.
  9. Dirk: "You've been making choices out of desperation for too long. Take control of your life, Todd. The minute you do interesting things will happen." Dirk: "The universe will lead me where I need to go. I am like a leaf in the stream of creation."
  10. The Dirk Gently season two panel from Comic Con is up on Youtube. Most interesting trivia bit: Fiona Dourif (Bart) is using dating sites in Vancouver, but if you text her with a Dirk Gently-related pun, she won't respond. Also check out, Osric Chau's video of the panel, as it includes all of the three clips that BBC America cut out of the panel they uploaded: Like this recap of S1:
  11. I don't remember much from Heroes, but I remember that Bryan Fuller gave a lot of interviews around the time in which he explicitly stated that Claire's friend was gay and there were even articles that were about how Dekker's management threatened to pull him out of the show, because he was up for the lead role in The Sarah Connor Chronicles and they thought him being gay on Heroes would decrease his chances of taking on an iconic action role. Speaking of iconic action roles, has there ever been a big gay action hero? I can't really think of one. That would intrigue me to see a gay character kicking ass in a major motion picture.
  12. Yeah and obviously both is a craft. Particularly, when you look at Gilmore Girls, to deliver that kind of dialogue in a way that it is natural and believable is tough. I also echo your feelings regarding Kelly Bishop. I was never a big Gilmore Girls fan (in fact I still have not finished the 7th season), but she was the hook of the show for me.
  13. I listened to the two demo songs "Sex Toys" and "It's Not Difficult to Define Ms. Douche" from the season two soundtrack that didn't make it into the show. I am kind of disappointed that they didn't make it into the show. They were really funny. :D
  14. I'm gonna be in Portland, Oregon, in August. Anyone have any recommendations on what to do there?
  15. It sounds kind of like The Man in the High Castle, alternative history fiction with the second World War being traded for the Civil War and without any science-fiction elements. But I guess it all depends on the writing and the execution. To confront the horrors of a dark time in a country's history in a story with a contemporary setting can open up discussions about the past and make people think about something they might prefer not to think about all that often and people can also reflect on current racial dynamics too. And I think there is still a dire need to talk about America's brutal history of slavery (and genocide of Native Americans too), because I don't think it's confronted and remembered as much as let's say the Holocaust is confronted and remembered in Germany. That being said, it doesn't sound like a series that I would enjoy watching. I still want to catch up on Underground, but I've been postponing it for over a year now, even though that's a show that is more about Black Empowerment than it is about slavery from what I've seen of it so far.
