I could never get over the complete disconnect between the bumbling buffoon we saw in BtVS and the badass we saw on Ats. They really needed some sort of backstory to explain the zero-to-hero transformation because I just couldn't correlate the Wesley I had seen before with the character he became.

Fair point, but then they did bring bridge that gap by introducing Wesley to Angel as that character and they having him grow from there.

We first see Wesley on a motorcycle chasing down a demon and the demon is plenty scared of him. He gets introduced in the story as the thing demons have nightmares about, sort of the way Buffy once described herself. I think most of his growth has happened between BtVS and Ats and we never see it.

That's a really good point. They did kind of make him a buffoon again for a while after that, but certainly that inbetween would be great to see what it looked like!

Yeah, but that's played as a joke, and the joke is that Wes is acting hard, but is really still a wimp. We get a few episodes of him as that character, and then he slowly grows into something darker and more well rounded. I think his growth works really well.

Yes but some back story about what happened between would have been nice too.

I think Wesley's transformation are too extreme. It doesn't feel natural or believable to me.
But I almost thought that he would win this round since so many seems to love his story. Even if it was against Buffy.

Glad he didn't though... :)
