A Perfect Fit

So, you may not know that I reject all disdain by the uninformed and proudly proclaim my allegiance to Buffy The Vampire Slayer as one of the all-time best TV series ever. Ever.

Except for the name, which people who've never seen it assume means cutesy characters and even sillier writing - they could SO not be farther from the truth! - absolutely nothing about this show was cutesy or silly. Even the name was a perfect, sarcastic play on itself. And I'm not even including the musical episode, which was perfection itself.

All this to say that, while I miss many of the characters (and the actors inhabiting them) from Buffy, it's always a thrill to run into one of the actors somewhere else in a different role.

Tonight I gave a little cheer and bounced around like a schoolgirl in my seat when I saw that the new (is he bad, is he good?) guest star on one of my favorite shows, Torchwood, is none other that Spike! How absolutely, freakin' perfect is that?! I hope they have him bite someone :-)

Boreanaz is really great in Bones. But Booth will always be Angel to me anyway.

I couldn't believe that Spike was American when I found out. His accent was very well done.

I totally agree on the Angel thing, Aulelia. Plus, Spike will always be a Brit to me. The American accent just doesn't seem to fit.

I was so in love with Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Angel was okay. It's weird seeing Boreanaz on Bones. That's probably why I don't watch it.

I keep expecting him to do the scary forehead thing. I actually really like Bones, but I think what makes it weird for me is that Booth isn't scary or intense enough. For that reason, he'll never be as sexy as Angel.
