Hi I'm new to posting at this site, so I'll cut the crap and just wade right in. S7 started in the UK about four weeks ago and so far it's been indifferent, to say the least. There seems to be no life in the show. Last week's ep, the one about the girl who knew she was going to die, and then did so after avoiding being sacrificed to a half-baked demon by some very wanky students, was boring. Whoever wrote this probably did so during his or her weekly therapeutic massage - it was soporific enough! Whedon and his minions really need to get their collective act together and liven things up a bit. However, reading some of your posts, my hopes are not being raised too high. And, unlike many, I'm not a Faith fan and have no 'faith' that her episodes will up the ante. However, I will confess that Spike is my favourite character (Oh, how I do like to be different ;~)). A complex, titillating, confusing, sexy hunk of an undead (former?) evil being. So imagine my disappointment in this season to have him apparently replaced by a bastardised version of William the Bloody. Now, this could have been an intriguing idea; an off-his-trolley Spike might have been interesting to develop, but not the way it's going at the moment, with a wimp who seems to have lost any sense of his former Spikeness. Marsters is, as always, doing his best but God is he up against some indifferent writing! Spike seems to have been given back his soul at the expense of his balls � not a great bargain, I feel. Now, I'll always like Spike, with or without chips (but preferably with balls), but he needs twenty-thousand volts shoved up his backside at the moment! That's all for now folks. cjn
