    AtS lacks imagination on writing politics-based metaphors.

    Jasmine is very mild and non-threatening compared to all communism and fascism practices in real human history. I mean, any self-respecting communist dictatorship won't allow kids to play skateboards on streets. It won't even allow kids to own these damn things. While Jasmine did. Yeah you western writers, never saw a true "Greater Good" unleashed to mankind yourselves. Jasmine is the best you can come up with?

    The corporation-corrupted Angel storyline is also very laughable. W&H wasn't seriously trying.

    Jasmine is one of the most interesting characters in the Jossverse. She follows the pattern of a true antichrist. The antichrist will come promoting peace. The antichrist will be a seductive person, not an ogre. The antichrist will take some bad situations that have lasted for a long time and correct them. The antichrist will displace or be revered as God.

    For a writer who does not follow Christianity, the depiction of the antichrist is as good as anything we get from Christian sources.

    I think The Zeppo is the most overrated episode of Buffy. I know I'm in the minority, but I just don't get why everyone loves it so much..... I found it really dull!

    I'm utterly indifferent about Oz. I don't think he is as funny or interesting or cool as everyone thinks, apparently.

    I also thought the Jasmine storyline was really interesting. I guess we're in the minority though!

    Most of them time I can't stand Willow. At best, I'm indifferent to her.

    When she was younger, she was irritating, insecure and weak-willed.
    She's grown into an arrogant, self serving and selfish person.

    Speaking of overrated episodes: Tabula Rasa! Other than the Rupert/Enya/Randy exchange, it was so boring and unrealistic.

    I didn't like the Zeppo . I didn't like the story line in it at all. Some people might like it but not me.
    And Tabula Rasa wasn't very exciting . The only thing I really liked about it was
    Spike & Giles thinking they were father & son & Anya was his stepmother .
    I loved that part but the rest was flat.

    Totally agree, Giles/Anya and Giles/Spike were amusing but it is far from being the funniest episode

    I don't like once more with feeling as much as other people. I thought the whole dawn being the damsel in distress was overused, and that willow can't sing to save her life.
    I don't like xander's and anya's song though I believe emma has an incredible voice.
    Spike's portion I genuinely liked because it suited his personality.
    The dancing until you die concept is horrible, she's a slayer for frick sake.
    There are better ways/spells/dire circumstances that could have gotten buffy to admit she was pulled out of heaven than singing and dancing to death.

    I wish they had done a musical episode like supernatural did a musical episode, where other people sang about the characters

    There some good singing in there . I like Tara singing . She was good & Anya singing about Bunnies was really funny.
    And Spike song was great. He had a great voice & the song really fitted him.

    Xander was stupid in calling Sweet up . Plane & Simple.
     
    Rogueslayer: agreed!

    My (very, very) unpopular opinion:
    The people (some more then others ;) ) are mostly only complaining, because having something to complain about is the main objective, while the topic doesent really matter. ;)

    That can be true but also unpopular . It all right to complain as long as you have facts to back it up otherwise it just your opinion.
