Eddie from 'The Freshman' should have been Buffy's boyfriend for the season

    Eddie is cute, but he's deeply pretentious, within seconds of meeting Buffy he's telling her of his love for Somerset Maugham ... purlease :rolleyes: . He and Buffy would have lasted two minutes, he has nothing to recommend him except he's physically near

    So in other words you're calling Buffy stupid and uneducated?:p

    Lol, it's in fact the exact opposite. Buffy is far too bright to be taken in by that pretentious fool :) Plus she needs someone who is capable of looking after himself, and Eddie seems a bit too needy

    They should be perfect for each other then!:D But you do agree that he would be better for her than Riley. At least he wouldn't talk down to her like that mop top;)
     
    Priceless: Poor Riley, he couldn't help just being himself

    To be fair to Riley, he is tall, a lot taller than Buffy. Unless he's sat or kneeling or lying down, he's going to be talking down to her. :p

    The resurgence of this thread was genius, as obviously The Freshman (and namely Sunday the vampire) was chosen for this month's podcast and we do talk a little bit about Eddie. I was gutted he was vamped and dispatched so quickly to be honest! I agree with @DeadlyDuo, having that few episode relationship would have been nice, even if he did have to pop his clogs eventually.

    I thought Eddie was great and had Sunday not overtaken him in the character stakes that episode, he may have been a contender for the person who should have stuck around longer ;) I think he could have been perfect for Buffy; handsome, smart, polite, a little bit of nerd for good measure. I could see Buffy happier in the long term with him than with Riley.

    Agreed. He would've probably gotten on well with Xander as well.
