Jesus Christ this series is depressing...
7 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Does anyone else miss the days when you couldn't watch Buffy for ten minutes with laughing raucously or feeling uplifted by some demon ass kicking. Season six just seems like one miserable event after another until you're not surprised Buffy's turned into a miserable snivelling wreck who cries every ten freakin' seconds. Tara and Willow broke up because Willow got addicted to magic, Giles left, Buffy was dragged out of heaven, Dawn turned to shoplifting, Buffy and Spike launched themselves i into the most depressing relationship ever committed to the screen and now Xander and Anya's relationship comes crashing down in the most pointless, unnecessary piece of TV melodrama EVER.

Buffy has seriously lost it's way. Now all the writers seem to do is dream up new ways to make the characters miserable. When huge shocking twists rocked the characters before they were rare events, so the shock factor was huge and left you reeling and with a genuine sense of sadness. Now there's so many miserable and depressing "twists" that they almost seem predictable and I find myself rolling my eyes...
