Goofs

When Warren makes the world fast-forward around Buffy, we never find out how the rest of the world sees her. At one point when he activates it, she is face-to-face in a conversation with Tara. If Buffy suddenly disappeared or seemed to stop moving, why wouldn't Tara panic? Instead she just leaves, and Buffy follows her outside where super-speedy students knock her down and kick her, apparently unaware of her presence. Yet they're the ones moving too fast to see, not her. She, instead, should be like an indestructible "statue", perfectly visible by all. See more »

Quotes

I dislike the Trio
14 October 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Although I'm a great fan of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", I must recognize that sixth season is very disappointing to me. I really hate the Trio. Nothing in them is hilarious to me. I hate a lot Warren. I hate Andrew and I don't like the idea of Jonathan as main character. To my eyes, these three are the worst "bads" of all seven seasons. Nothing to see with Glory, The Master, Spike and Drusilla. The Trio has no "glamour" and they seems have a kind of parody that I don't find at all. I think too that Joss Whedon had a big mistake with the departure of main characters very nice to me, as Riley, Tara, and also Giles, who was not yet a regular member of the cast, since the sixth season. I have would like that the relationship between Riley and Buffy continue during that season. Also, Marc Blucas is very better actor that the Trio together. With the Trio, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", lost his magic and it became a kind of self-parody. By the way, I will continue being in love with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". Sorry for my bad English.
