Boy, it's been a while - I bet a lot of you don't even remember I was doing this rewatch. I had really good reason for this hiatus this time, due to having been extremely busy these last 3 months with work - I had a huge translation job with strict deadlines, so lots of things got put on hold (frak, I didn't even go to the beach once this summer, despite the scorching heat). I finally finished it yesterday morning (on the deadline date!) so now I'm getting back to "normal".
However, since there have been such big breaks in my rewatch (I can't believe I started it last February and didn't get further than mid-season 3
) due to various circumstances, I've decided Ithat over the next couple of weeks I'm going to do a marathon of the Buffy
episodes I've already reviewed - to remind myself and get a bit of continuity before continuing with the rewatch.
I'm also going to do something I said I wouldn't, and start with watching the 1992 movie (which I've seen just once many years ago, a few years before I saw the show). I didn't plan to include it in the rewatch, since 1) it's not canon, 2) it sucks, but it'll be fun to see it again, see how it all started and compare it with the show, and compare it with the way Joss' script was adapted in The Origin
comic, which he has approved as "pretty much canon". I won't do a proper review of the movie, but I'll post a few thoughts. Then I'll marathon season 1, season 2 and the first part of season 3, and post just a few thoughts - any new things I've noticed, has my opinion on anything changed in the meantime or not.
And then of course, I'll continue with reviews as usual, starting with 3.11. Gingerbread
. Hopefully on a more regular basis than I've been posting so far.
