- The City of Angels
I know what you mean. I experiece these feelings everyday, about everybody including my dog. The only one really close to be that I've lost was my dog, about 5 years ago and it hurt like hell. Since then I don't take anyone for granted, and I've gotten real paranoid that I can't say goodbye to anyone, I just fear that it would be the last time I see them. I'm not even scared for my own life, just other's.I also found it sort of boring... It also always scares the crap out of me because I am made aware of our mortality and I know some day my parents will die. I've seen them both on the brink of death, but some day, they will actually die. That thought terrifies be beyond belief. This is the scariest episode of Buffy because it reminds me of that.
I think we got so used to Buffy-ic episodes, with evil vampires, fights, wittiness, jokes, etc. so when we watch a so different episode, with not much of the above, it seems like nothing really happens there. Not even music or tunes, nothing. Someone is dead, but nothing else happens. I know how I must sound, but I don't mean that death is boring. But we're used to something that is being taken away from us for an entire episode. Just in the end, we get this vampire that reminds us that vampires are still out there, even though people still die, and not by them. In the ending scene it felt more Buffy like.I don't understand why everyone finds this episode so boring. I'd actually prefer watching this one over some of the more, dull, episodes of the season. I'm not sick or anything. I don't like the idea of people dying. In fact I think part of the reason I watch is because it's more attuned to reality than fantasy. It's something that could happen, and not very many people put that message across in fiction.
Yeah,but thats kinda the point. It captures how...boring and airless real life death is. How youre just waiting for something to happen.I know it's a big and meaninful episode, with great writing and acting, but... I found it kinda boring. Or really boring.
I wouldn't say it's bad. We all react differently to these thingsI watched this episode for the first time today, and is it bad I didn't cry or feel remorse at all? I just watched it, and went on to the next episode...
