Good, 24 August 2007
Author: Deshra_Dine from United States

The series was an awesome roller coaster ride of fun, I thought End of Days could have been a little better than it was. First off the red weapon that they use and that is also included in the comic Fray (also by Joss) is an Ax unfortunately everyone misconstrues what a Scythe is. Scythes are the following: the weapon in the hands of Death AKA the Grim Reaper. The weapon in the hands of Father Time. An ancient old English and Japanese Harvesting tool. The small version is called a Kama. The easy way to tell a True scythe from anything else is the shape of the blade, scythes are long slightly curved downward. A sickle is shaped like a C, (russian flag has one). The ax in end of days is truly a Pole-Ax. Other than that misconception by the crew of Buffy. I thought the series end was good. Except that it wasn't the END of the series. As there is a new comic out that is season 8. My all time favorite Buffy episode is "Bewitched Bothered an Bewildered" where Xander talks a witch into casting a love spell on Cordelia and it backfires making everyone BUT her head over heels for him.

I also love watching Angel, I think from angel my favorite episode was the episode with the necromancer in it.
