Hahaha... Oh, Tariel, I'm so glad I read this entry! Very creative & a great read despite the fact that I don't have the knowledge base to truly appreciate it. I'm not a Smallville fan. I fell out of the show years ago (due disruption in access for several years), and never really got back into it. I tried, thank the gods! because it introduced me to Supernatural! but once fallen, I couldn't get back up. I don't know why. It was just "one of those things."

Are you a shipper? Um, er, uh... Shipping is always a bad idea! It's like handing your heart on a platter to TPTB and they do very evil things with it. Neo/Trinity has to be my all-time gut-wrenching shipping slip though, followed by very close runner-up of Buffy/Angel. Oh. But then, I guess I fell for the Spuffy ship hard-core.... *facepalms*

OMG, awesome insight!! Too, too true! Oh, I fought the Spuffy, I really did, but James Marsters has the ability to make me love him no matter how evil the character he's playing is! I actually became outraged on his behalf that Buffy treated him so badly, but in the end I still wanted them to be together.

Um, TPTB? Here's my heart. LOL!

I fell so hard for James Marsters... And was thrilled, thrilled, THRILLED that they brought him back and felt vindicated when they took him out the way they did. Buffy was a little bitchy, but given the givens, I guess I kind of sort of understood. I love Joss Whedon. He does such interesting stuff. I was finally able to rent Firefly a year or so ago, after Serenity came out (first I'd heard of it, unfortunately - I was deprived of t.v. access for awhile, as I mentioned), and I was so said that it got cut because it had such wonderful potential. He creates very multi-dimensional characters in mythdom and I've never been disappointed by any of the casting involved in his projects.

Oh, I totally agree. I was so looking forward to Dollhouse when this stupid strike hit. Who knows when we'll get to see it now. *sighs*
