Hey Dawn has her funny moments too.It would be no surprise that I am too easy on Connor too because well just adore him and all his anger/angst!
I am mostly easy on every character that I like but really Buffy and Angel can't do no wrong because I just find they do so much good that they get a pass when it comes to decisions. On the BB we can say that I am easy on Xander and Spike because I generally defend them in discussion and still love them after all they have done. Oh and Faith gets a pass too because well Eliza Dushku is amazing!!!!!!!
I am mostly hard on Dawn, Anya and Riley. With each re-watch I do find Riley better as a love interest and I don't hate him like I use too. As for Dawn and Anya well it's for very different reasons but mostly because they are very self-centered persons and I hate that. I know Dawn is very neglected but I just can't seem to emphatize with her. At least Anya is funny!
I always defend the likes of Riley & Kennedy whom most people seem to despise.
There are some characters I pretty much hate like Rona, Holtz, Justine & Eve but I think my hate is justified. I'm probably the most hard on Xander because he strongly irks me at times more than any of the other main characters but I still love him. He really does add a lot to the group dynamic. And he was the heart of the scoobies after all in the Primeval spell.
