okay, first off, anya got a really bum deal once marti noxon took over the helm. i mean, come fucking on. xander leaving her at the altar was pretty much an out of character contrivance that strained everyone's characters past believability. & then killing her at the end? like her being a fan favorite made up for her being a total non-entity in the last couple seasons? like that is supposed to be legit storytelling? no, you know what, fuck you. one of the few things i empathize with in dramarama is the theme of alienation. & sure, buffy has her cliche stuff, which is solid. but anya's constant, low-level not getting it? superior by a landslide. so i call foul, i call bullshit. i wish she'd been dragged along in the riptide to angel. that would have been...so great. anya versus fred? or anya plus fred? talk about television chemistry that should have bubbled!

while we are talking about television dudes, let me dwell for a second on jms. mister, the fuck. i kind of like your run on amazing spider-man. the whole totem thing is a decent direction to go. i mean, i always rooted for it in gotham, but that is why applying it to the spidey mythos works so well. it isn't as obvious. that is fine! & the bits with mary jane & aunt may? well within your rights as a big name writer with a hot property. so i'm dubbing all that no-fault. you've done just fine. but shit man, i just read your 9/11 spider-man issue. okay, i get that you've got to do that whole firemen are the real heroes thing. i get that, i really do. & i know, you can't make marvel continuity jokes. like, where was thor, or the avengers, or fucking doctor strange? i get that you kind of have to turn that blind eye to the marvel u, because it is one of those times when comics are laid bare to the bone as far as allegorical elements are concerned. i get that, i want you to understand. but, fucking dude...dude. you have DOCTOR DOOM & MAGNETO at the site. you have doctor doom shed a single tear underneath his mask! the fuck! listen. you want to put kingpin in & have him sad, fine. vulture, okay. there are plenty of villians that you could have made your point with. but....dude! FUCKING DOCTOR DOOM BLOWS UP BUILDINGS IN NEW YORK REGULARLY IN PROTEST OF U.S. POLICY! doctor fucking doom issues a press release saying "we unilaterally support this action. in fact, we take credit, if no one else does." then his fucking doombot blows up the building that the press are in. okay? doctor fucking doom? & then magneto? okay, i'm not saying magnus takes glory in it. nor that he gloats. but shit. man, can you say "i told you so?" i mean, isn't that the whole point of magneto? it is, right? so seriously...come on.
