Re: Once More, With Feeling: my big Buffy/Angel canon rewatch/reread/r
I really liked "When She Was Bad". I think it was a strong episode to open the season with. The writing felt noticeably tighter over the season 1 episodes. The show was definitely starting to find its voice. Over the course of season 2, it's voice becomes even stronger. I remember being particularly impressed with the fact that Buffy's trauma wasn't just brushed off and forgotten in between seasons. I wasn't used to a series that paid close attention to continuity, and allowed the character arcs to continue over the span of the series instead of being more stand-alone and episodic. Buffy
was probably my first taste of a truly serialized TV show.
