My 10 unpopular opinons meme

I wasn't going to do this meme, but I've loved all the answers and it seems to have moved away from fandom opinions to the show. I feel a bit safer now!

My 10 unpopular opinons are:
1. I like Beer Bad
2. Crush is my favourite ep.
3. I don't like season 2.
4. I do like season 4.
5. I really don't like Joyce.
6. Fool for Love makes me cringe in places. Especially that "power shot", ugh.
7. I wouldn't mind if I never saw William again. I have zero interest in him.
8. Season one is awful and the reason I never watched again until season five.
9. Faith bores me rigid.
10. Firefly was pants. So there.

OOps! Don't think I agree with any of these, except maybe the last one (although I haven't actually seen Firefly, I'm just very prejudiced against it because it distracted Joss too much last year).

That's why they're unpopular opinions!

I gave Firefly a proper go and just bored me rigid. Doesn't mean it couldn't develop into something better given the chance. But I agree, it distracted Joss, so 2 bad points.

I wouldn't say it was pants. I watched the first four or five episodes, though, and after that, I never remembered to set the VCR again (it was on while I was at work) because I simply hadn't grown any connection to it. And I gave it a better chance than I do most new series. (Tru Calling got two outings from me before I decided I'd seen it all.)

It was competently done, but the characters didn't reach out and grab me.

The "power shot" makes me cringe too. I love just about the whole of the rest of the episode, but gah, what is the point of that shot?

To make the him look cool, I suppose. But it way too over the top. I have to look away when I see it.

Actually, I've made my peace with this ep, it is good, but too many things about the execution of it bother me greatly.

1. The Party scene. Completely unconvincing and badly acted (not by JM, take note), looks like a bad holodeck ep of ST:TNG.
2. The Scoobies in the cemetery acting like idiots.
3. Riley is a twat. I don't completely dislike him, but he's a twat here.
4. Crap lighting in the Bronze doesn't flatter JM and that just won't do.
5. The fight with the Chinese slayer is boring and lit crap.
6. The aformentioned power shot.
7. DB's accent.

I think that's it. I like everything else. Sorry for the vent!

What are we calling "the power shot"?

Um, what's the power shot?

It's that slo mo show of the four vampires walking to the camera in China. With the jumping and all that.

Don't make me think about it please.

I've only seen 'Beer Bad' once...but it made me laugh!

I'm not sure that 'Crush' is my favourite episode (I think 'Intervention' may just be that), but it is very special to me in that it was the very first ep I ever saw and it got me me hooked on Spike immediately.

Season 2's OK, inasmuch as it has Spike in it.

What's not to like about Season 4? It's got Spike in it!

I do like Joyce, but not in S2 or 3.

'Fool For Love' makes me cringe in teh same places that it does you. Pls, basly researched. No Victorian gentleman would have shown up to a party dressed in a day suit like William was.

William -- aww. He's cute...sort of.

Faith - is a cooler Slayer than Buffy.

Can't comment on 'Firefly'. I've never seen it. But I didn't care for Caleb, who I believe was a left-over from that show.

I love intervention too. Crush was one of the first eps I saw (after I gave up in S1). I don't see the problem with it that others seem too. I loved Spike in it, but Buffy was quite in the right there.

The problem I have with the S3 Faith storyline probably is the lack of Spike though.

'Fool For Love' makes me cringe in teh same places that it does you. Pls, basly researched. No Victorian gentleman would have shown up to a party dressed in a day suit like William was.

Not only that, but he would never have addressed her as "Cecily," it would have been "Miss Adams," and she would have called him "Mr. (whatever his surname was)"

And then there's "the wig," which went on to star in a remake of "Alf."

Lessee, there are some in here I can get on board with:

1. Me too!
2. Not my favorite, but *a* favorite. And definitely the reason I trust Fury with Spike.
4. 'nother me too.
7. Absolutely! I don't mind the flashbacks, but William, in general, is just not interesting.
8. Not a big fan of S1, myself, as a season. Some good eps, though.
10. What's pants?


I refuse to curb my britishisms for non-Brits! Hee. Then how would anyone know I'm me?
Its quite a modern one though, couldn't see Spike saying it.

I thought this meme going round would get people's backs up, but its all proved rather interesting.
