TEA TIME BtVS Episode Of The Day: #7 "ANGEL"


(1) THE GOOD: BUFFY TURNS GRAY


THE MOMENT BLACK & WHITE TURNS INTO GRAY --

when first-love's face reveals a fright'ning side,

when unexpected darkness pierces day --

your pointed clarity cannot abide . . .


. . . within parameters of Sunday School.

(BUT NO, that's wrong. Perhaps that's THE one spot

forgiveness and redemption's labeled cool.)

Can chosen slayer's say, "Oh, I forgot . . .


. . . you drank the blood of thousands in your past."


How can a sacred duty overlook

a clear bi-polar judgement, and recast

each situation -- not "go by the book?"


The Buffyverse transcended on that night

the slayer rule of who she has to fight.



(2) THE BAD: OF VAMPIRES WITH GUNS


NOW SOMETIMES WRITERS DO A STUPID THING . . .

LIKE when they gave vamp Darla forty-fives

(9 millimeter pistols?). Let them sing

at high velocity. How many lives, . . .


. . . pray, tell me, does a vampire slayer get?


If vampire law allows them to pack heat --

shot guns, and Uzi's, Darla's hand-gun set --

how long before each slayer's just raw meat?


With wooden stakes and spry fast flying kicks,

how long before "The Chosen One's" just "Choice"

ground beef in well-armed vampires' taco mix?

A dozen vamps take aim. And then rejoice!


A missle-toting Buffy's day will come . . .

But pistol-packing Darla was "plain dumb."


you speak
