"In Which I Revise My Thoughts on Serenity" [07 Aug 2009|07:10pm]

Title: "In Which I Revise My Thoughts on Serenity"
Author: radio_silent 
Summary: A recent rewatch of the film Serenity led me to reevaluate what I see as the best and worst elements of the film. The review is accompanied by pictures as well (and thus could be labeled a picspam).

Meta: Dracula vs Buffy [20 Mar 2008|05:03am]

beer_good_foamy discusses Buffy, Dracula, the nature of vampires and the Season 5 arc.

"Get a life" seems like a theme here. Season 5 is the season in which Buffy really starts having trouble with being the Slayer. Throughout the whole season, every character is consistently shown to be at least two seemingly contradicting characters...

Spoilers through the end of Season 7. Also spoilers through Season 8, Issue 12 (comics).

It's quite long and well-written. Best Buffyverse meta I've read in a long time. Highly enjoyable!

Relationships in the Buffyverse... [17 Oct 2006|01:25pm]

weloseourselves has a very brief epiphany while thinking about the various romantic relationships in Buffy and Angel. It may well have been remarked upon before, but nonetheless he would appreciate everyone's thoughts on the matter.

Comments have spoilers for all of Buffy, Agel, and Firefly/Serenity.

coffeeandink, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Final Girl [06 Mar 2006|09:19pm]

I posted some notes on Carol Clover's discussion of the Final Girl in slasher movies and how the figure is reworked/refuted by Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The conversation mostly focuses on Seasons One and Two, but there are spoilers for the entire series.

Interesting posts at feminist blog Capitalism Bad, Tree Pretty on Firefly. The author likes Kaylee and Simon/Kaylee but isn't so impressed with the Companion concept, and discusses whether Mal's Libertarian politics are unproblematically endorsed by the show. Spoilers for Serenity script book and deleted scenes on DVD.

I just thought that Buffy fans might find this interesting. They have named an orbiting body "Buffy" after the show!
