    False - I thought the moral questions raised by Jasmine in particular the importance of Free Will was fascinating and rather well done even if the Cordelia stuff leading up to Jasmine was icky at times.

    Realistically Buffy should be able to defeat Faith pretty effortlessly at this point considering how much more experience of being an active slayer she has.

      False. I think Buffy would defeat Faith, but I don't think it would be 'effortlessly' as Faith is tough, and the emotional impact would have to be taken into account.

      Statement: Jesse should have been referenced more on the show

        Definitely true.

        Statement: Buffy somehow being strong enough to lift Olaf's Hammer (especially in contrast to Spike not being able to lift it) like it was a feather was absurd. Buffy can't be that strong, or it would invalidate so many other storylines.
        You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

          True. If the difference between her and a vamp was that great she'd always be able to disable them with one punch of her mighty fists!

          Dawn is one of the most disappointingly underutilised characters.

            False . . . Dawn is fully realised and her growth is very well done

            Statement: Doyle was not a great character and Wesley was a better fit for AtS

              True. I way preferred Wesley to Doyle

              Maggie Walsh would have been a better big bad than Adam.

                Statement: Buffy loved Spike in Season 6

                  As much as she'd let herself love him unsouled, yes. I definitely think she cared about him and I can accept that it was loving, but it wasn't a complete love with breadth/depth because his limitations affected what she could feel for him.

                  Statement: Fred should never have been resurrected.

                    Statement: The Fred/Illyria/Angel triangle is problematic

                      False - I think it's stunning. For me it incorporates those elements of Angel's psyche formed by his respective relationships with Kathy and his father (LOL! Father, Son and Holy Ghost)

                      Statement:Buffy loved Spike in Season 7

                        True! She even says so (he's wrong).

                        Spike is way out of character in AtS season 5.

                          True ! (James Marster was young and needed the

                          Statement: Angel and Angelus are two different beings.

                            False. Angel is Angel, he is one continuous character although meaningfully distinct when he's human/unsouled/souled. But there is continuity as well as distinction. It works exactly the same for him as Spike, they are individuals who respond to situations based on their personalities/background/history etc. It shallows the characters and stories to try to totally separate either of them and makes a nonsense of the fact that the characters feel any guilt for their unsouled crimes or connection to their human origination/families etc.

                            Statement: Jenny should have told the group about Angel's curse.

                              Jenny should have told the group of Angel's curse, but the entire show would have had a different trajectory, so I'm kind of glad she messed up.

                              Statement: Dru was one of the most tragic characters of the entire series. Angelus destroyed her family, her life, her calling and then turned her into a ravening beast... no wonder she was crazy, cruel and capricious. PTSD and visions... too much for any one person...

                                True . . . but I still don't find her a compelling character

                                Statement: Cordelia was the heart of AtS and ruining her character ruined the show
