buffyosity

i'm making the most of the (two) episodes of season 7 i get to watch before i go back to uni on sunday. then i have to wait til the easter holidays or an appropriate weekend home, but at least i get a marathon ;) and, in any, case, hurrah for season 6 on the bbc. i have to admit, tonight's cuts were incredibly well edited. i probably wouldn't have noticed at all had i not obsessively re-watched all the buffy/spike sequences over the summer...

for the record:

1) the scene in the kitchen before the social worker arrives - right after spike says "this flapjack's not ready to be flipped", they cut buffy's reaction, but it was seamlessly done with xander's "good godfrey cambridge, spike!"

2) the scene in spike's crypt when xander turns up. first, they cut spike's, uh, 'movements' under the sheet, for obvious reasons (which is a shame, because it's funny...) and secondly, they cut his 'exercising', too. less obvious, and more annoying...

3) same scene, after xander's left and spike's talking to buffy. they cut the best bit. i never remember the exact line, but they cut all of it. spike: "you should go [here, they cut.] get dressed, if you can find your clothes, and just go. if i can't have all of you, then... [looks down] hey, that's cheating!" *giggles* okay, fair enough, i see why they cut it. but still...

and this, i realise, is the exact scene james marsters was talking about when he said at the con: "when you go to your trailer for your costume and you find a sock..."

:D

anyway. buffy overdose today. (as a side note, am becoming rather too fond of 'fresh prince of bel air'... and realised today that they do angsty plotlines entirely too well for average early 90s comedy...)

Collapse )

so, consider thyselves thoroughly spoiled. weird thing - "farscape" spoilers make me homicidal. "buffy" spoilers make me shrug...

that's it, really. i'm finally getting my hair cut tomorrow, thank god. it's reached that stage of nearly-in-between that starts to drive me slowly mad and want to tear it out. and i'm also going to be having an eddie izzard marathon with lloyd (courtesy of me, of course) tomorrow night, which should be interesting, to say the least...

and also...

last night, i had several dreams. the last one, i remember, i was going to be executed for some reason. and i was wearing a wizard-y hat in the same colour velvet as my new coat. brain is saturated...

anyway, the other one was a buffy dream, where i was watching "beneath you", with naomi (stemming from conversation on tuesday night, i imagine) only it bore absolutely no resemblance to the real episode in any way. guess i was really looking forward to it... ;) anyway, in this one, i distinctly recall buffy being in a sort of dark pink satin dress, like in the halloween one in season 2 (you know the one...) and dawn was there, too... and i think xander. anyway, there was this whole sequence with buffy and spike and a dance (mind control, maybe? it made sense as part of the episode in the dream) and the very last section of it was spike telling buffy he loved her, and buffy telling spike she loved him, too, and focussing on his shell-shocked expression.

and then i remember turning to naomi and going "okay, what happened to the pretty ending?!"

*shrug* weird. and pleasantly fuzzy :)
