What is Your Shakespearian Tragic Flaw?

You know, I really love this game. It makes me wonder.

In the year 2005 I resolve to:

Procrastinate more.

Well, I've finally finished the entire run of Buffy. I have to say that I am quite impressed wiht how the show developed over the years, bringing it to a finale that is satisfying on many levels. Season 6 was Willow's season all the way, and the fact that it was sweet little Willow who was going through the shit that she was going through gave a lot of weight to her plight. It looks like they had a bit of trouble figuring out what to do with Dawn through season six, although they solve much of that for season seven. And Spike... well, the development of Spike throughout season six was great with turns that are some unexpected, but perfectly in character. What was really astounding, however, was how this character developed over the course of season seven. The writing and the copious range of James Marsters gave this character such as fascinating edge in a move that could easily have been trite.

I have to say that I really liked Thomas Wanker's musical contribution to season six. Perhaps he was too concious of operating in Christophe Beck's shadow in season five (which makes sense; in a way, Beck is to Buffy what John Barry is to James Bond), but in season six he branches out and develops his own style. I really liked the three scores for season seven that were contributed by Douglas Romayne Stevens, but Robert Duncan, who scored the remainer of season seven, deserves special credit for his work. I had downloaded some cues from his website a few months ago and was quite impressed by them, but seeing how he developed his thematic material over the season for the epic culmination in "Chosen" was wonderful. The standards for music in both Buffy and Angel were much, much higher than one generally finds for feature films, much less television stories.

Movie Quote of the Week

Some Like It Hot


I called Mama. She was so happy she cried. She wants you to have her wedding gown. It's white lace.


Yeah, Osgood. I can't get married in your mother's dress. Ha ha. That-she and I, we are not built the same way.


We can have it altered.


Aw no you don't! Osgood, I'm gonna level with you. We can't get married at all.


Why not?


Well, in the first place, I'm not a natural blonde.


Doesn't matter.


I smoke. I smoke all the time.


I don't care.


Well, I have a terrible past. For three years now, I've been living with a saxophone player.


I forgive you.


I can never have children.


We can adopt some.


But you don't understand, Osgood.

He whips off his wig, exasperated, and changes to a manly voice.

Uh, I'm a man.


Well, nobody's perfect.
