Buffy, “Touched”

This review is full of sex! By Sarah Kuhn May 07, 2003 I’ve been twisting myself in knots trying to figure out how to say one simple thing. So I think I’ll just say it: this episode is full of sex. Which is fine. Certainly a natural response to the possibility of impending apocalypse. That said, some of it is…

Buffy, “Chosen”

She saved the world a lot. By Sarah Kuhn May 22, 2003 (If you haven’t done so already, do check out my farewell to Buffy article.) I don’t know about you, but here’s the moment that did it for me.

Buffy, “End of Days”

A moment of silence for Miss Kitty Fantastico… By Sarah Kuhn May 14, 2003 Oh, dear. I guess we finally know what happened to Miss Kitty Fantastico. I bet the kitten playing Miss Kitty just became such a diva that they wrote her out of the show. I would love to see the Us Weekly photo spread on that, complete with paparazzi…

For many, the end of the series is only the beginning of the journey. By Rachel De Nys May 19, 2003 Every aficionado knows that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is more than just a TV show. It’s an ideology, an attitude, a way of life that has, sometimes to a scary extent, hit us on a pretty heavy emotional level. Whether it’s…

On The Jazz #11: Adventures in Buffyland

The world is definitely doomed. By Matt Springer May 23, 2003 Picture him if you will: A green, decidedly unscrawny young lad, all of 22 spankin’ years old, staring down his 23rd birthday with nothing to show for his existence except a stack of crap he wrote in college and four longboxes of nineties’ comic books. (Including eight copies of X-Factor #1,…

The Matrix Reloaded

There is no spoon. Only talking. By Matt Springer May 15, 2003 The Matrix Reloaded is so fucking cool. Totally, completely, and seriously, dudes and dudettes. This is an AWESOME movie. The action sequences are universally magnificent. The special effects are light years beyond the first Matrix. Once the story locks in, it’s a ride that drags you through peril after peril,…

Speaks the Nightbird by Robert R. McCammon

Which witch will burn, which? By Chuck Wendig May 06, 2003 I wasn’t yet a teenager when my sister did a terrible thing to me. I was twelve, still reading Lloyd Alexander and C.S. Lewis, and then suddenly, my sister pressed into my palm a paperback book called Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon. Damn thing was over 950 pages long (and…
