Hint of gayness in Season 2?

I'm watching Reptile Boy right now, and I noticed what might be the first hint of Willow's gay/biness:

WILLOW: You're going to the fraternity party? What made you change your mind?
BUFFY: Angel.
WILLOW[a little jealous]: He's going with you? [To Xander] She's got a date with Angel, isn't that exciting?
XANDER: I'm elated.
BUFFY: I-I'm not going with Angel. I'm going with ... yea gods... Cordelia!
WILLOW: Cordelia? Did I sound a little jealous just then, because I'm not really-... Cordelia?

The direction "a little jealous" was from the original script, so Willow was definitly suppose to sound jealous, it's not just what the character suspected.

I wonder if there's more hints to Willow liking girls before she meet Tara, other than vampire Willow's behaviour.

A little comic book rant

I just read the 4 first issues in the original Buffy series(the one with over 60 issues). I've found lots of time inconsistencies. It seems to be season 3 post Band candy, yet pre-Suprise, still post Surprise, for several reasons, to just mentioned a few times markers that make no sense when combined (for example, Oz is there, knowing about monsters, which sets the comic post-Innocence, yet both souled Angel and Spike & Dru are around, which makes it pre-What's my line?)

How could this comic be published? The writer(s) and the editor(s) couldn't have watched the show that closely. Here I thought Joss read and approved every comic. Was that wrong, or did he just read summarizations?

It will be interesting to see how Darkhorse have placed them in the Buffy omnibuses, which are suppose to be chronological. I was thinking about making a list of continuity errors for the series, time wise and plot wise, but it's 60-ish issues, and I can't be bothered. I do love to whine, but that's taking it too far.

EDIT- 5th August 2010

Seems like I put my foot in my mouth. But just a little. I've read up until issue 11 now, and I overreacted about the Dru/Spike thing, since Buffy could have been worried about them returning in Season 3 as well. Also, another character mentioned that they left town. So this series seems to follow the Season 3 story, definitly set after Beauty and the Beasts, since Angel is back. But I found a big inconsistency.

Buffy & Angel are dating, comfortably it seems. So is Cordelia & Xander. How does that work? Angel & Buffy didn't get couply until way after Lover's Walk(they were "just friends" as they told Spike), but that's when Xander & Cordelia broke up, due to the cheating.

I could probably go back, read the issues again to try to make sense of it, and re-evaluate the other inconsistencies I found with this non-Spike&Dru error in mind, but I'm too lazy.

Faith maquette


Those are supposedly the first pictures of the next statue in the new sideshow line (first one was Throne of the Slayer, ex and regular).

Word online is that this was suppose to have been revealed at San Diego Comic Con, but was delayed for some reason (likness issues maybe?), so this might not be the final version of the statue.

It is however clear that they "borrowed" the pose from this Jo Chen cover (Season 8, issue 6):

Weekly feature: What to buy?

The sodas I mentioned here are now available for sale. Unfortunally just for the US and parts of Canada. But some will probably turn up on ebay (probably overprized).


Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Dirty Girls, the season 7 episode when Caleb and Faith arrive in Sunnydale (pressumingly, since that's the first time I remember seeing Caleb).

"Faith offers a possible reason why the blind Bringers are so good in battle:
'They say your other senses get better. Maybe all blind people are smokin' in a knife fight... Not sayin' it's likely.'"

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Chosen.

"Dawn tells the Potentials a bedtime story:
DAWN: 'And the Master grabbed Buffy from behind and bit her. She tried to move, but he was too strong. He fed on her blood and tossed her in the water, cackling insanely as the bubbles rose around her and she slowly drowned to death.'
VI: 'Do you have any other stories?'
DAWN: She gets up again. It's very romantic. Guys, you gotta stop worrying. It's Buffy. She always saves the day.'"

Weekly feature: What to buy?

If I had money to spend, I'd probably spend it on the same kind of knife Faith used in season 3.
Which is currently available for a reasonable price on ebay.


PS. I'm pretty sure that's the right knife, but google to be sure in case you plan on bidding.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Potential (Spike & Buffy train the potentials, while Dawn and the others think's she's a potential herself).

"When, Buffy, Spike, Dawn, Molly, Rona, Vi, Kennedy, and Andrew are in the kitchen, the following line, delivered by Kennedy, was cut (probably because there wasn't enough room):
'Hey guys, we fit three more people in here and we can call the Guinness Book people.'"

Weekly feature: What to buy?

Weekly feature: Exerpt from original script

From Same time, Same Place, when Willow returns home from England.

"When Dawn tries to point out that Willow could be the one to blame for her own problems, her tirade goes a little longer than she had intended in the script:
'Instead everyone just keeps secrets, and suffers alone, and then we're suppose to be all sympathetic when they start ripping the skins off people or dragging their sisters to the basement! I may have some stuff to work through."'

This line was originally intended to be right after Dawn's line "Oh, don't give me shock-face. I mean, what I want to know is, will anyone around here ever ask for help when they need it?" Check here.

Weekly feature: What to buy?

Sideshow just put up the two Spike Electric Tikis (named Ultimate Spike) for pre-order. They both have two exchangable heads(human & vampire face) and three exchangable hands (fist, railroad spike & axe).
