Buffy Rewatch: The Dark Age

Finally Giles gets a backstory.  As it turns out he wasn’t always stuffy watcher library guy, Giles used to be edgy (or as edgy as one can be whilst studying history at Oxford).

I enjoy that Giles gets another dimension. He’s entertaining in the sort of way all adults are on TV shows about high school are entertaining, but now we realize that he’s more than just a grown-up, Giles is human too.

And isn’t that the realization that everybody has growing up?  You eventually discover that your parents or other adults that you look up to are just human, they do stupid things just like the rest of us.

Stray Observations:

  • I love Buffy and Willow’s game Anywhere But Here
  • Bad things happen when you have school on Saturday
  • It’s possible that I root for Giles/Jenny harder than I root for Xander/Willow.
  • Willow is super scary when she’s angry, even now.  And she’s taking charge more and more
