Tape Tales: oh the horror

Cleared out another videotape. It’s from about 2002 and contains two ‘Smallville’ eps, one ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ ep and one ‘Angel’. I guess I must have liked this seven years ago, but now? Not so much.

The ‘Buffy’ ep was season 6’s ‘Entropy’ in which the useless Trio did stuff. What is TPTB obsession with Andrew? Anyway Buffy slays a vampire; the dusting effect is really bad. Then she and Spike and Willow and Tara have more of their endless drama. Dawn shoplifts. Why did the writers turn the entire female cast into Amy Abbott off ‘Everwood’? Why does nobody care about what happened to Anya? Why is Dawn treated like she’s eight years old? Why did Buffy never stake Spike? Xander is made into even more of a pathetic jerk than usual when he completely turns on Anya. This was dull.

The ‘Angel’ ep was ‘Sleep Tight’ in which Wesley obsesses over that damn ‘The Father Will Kill The Son’ prophecy. Wesley is a liar and a gross human being. Justine and Holtz (and his annoying accent) are smug. Wesley steals baby Connor. Lilah continues to get away with her crap. Holtz takes Connor and runs off into a hell dimension. This was just dull.

In the season 1 ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Drone’ bees attack SV High students. A school election gets ugly. A reporter in a skirt that’s way too short chases Lex. Lana whines. Bees swarm. Clark and Lex talk to each other. Dull.

The final ep was another season 1 ‘Smallville’ named ‘Zero’ in which Lex got abused by the villain o’the week. This was wannbe dark and edgy and was neither.
