Just say it like it is. I used to like Spuffy before you started preaching them like the second coming. They weren't that great.You do realize that 99% of people in this very thread are spuffy fanbase?
and yes, to me it is. Spuffy has been the best OTP for me, with LOVE from Veronica Mars coming in second and first two seasons of CHAIR - third.
Bufy was an amazing show, but tv was written differently then. You're talking about a show in which countless episodes worked on a episode long arc. Season long arcs were often only pursued for 1/2 of the seeason's episodes. They even did a musical episode for christs sake. It was a great show, but it had its flaws. Television is so much more demanding these days.You DO realize that the whole BTVS is one long series-long story arc? right? Even the episodes that "seemed episodic" had a very certain purpose in every season-arc.
And you can't get more "demanding" than BTVS writing was. its the standard every genre show should aspire to, yet doe snot. Its still beyond its time. its still beyond the present time and I find that tv-writing has seriously regressed since then.
