Hope you like the latter half more than I did. Buffy went steadily down hill for me after the 4th season.
Aww, that's too bad. Yeah, I liked the 3rd and 4th seasons more than the others so far. Xander hasn't been as fun. I like Anya, probably more than Cordelia, but somehow I still kind of miss Cordelia, as shallow of a character as she is. I haven't really liked how Willow's character has changed, either. While I agree that the strongest part of the show so far has been the character interaction, I am finding a lot of it forced and unsatisfying.
Mark, don't take my comments too hard. I still don't regret watching the show.
