i really feel that 'dark' can be depressing, but does not have to be. just as 'depressing' can be dark, but it isn't always. actually, imo 'darkness' encompasses a whole wealth of things that may or may not include depression/depressing. it's just a differing opinion on the nature of the word.


and really, don't underestimate the numbers of 'fans' that couldn't get upn and couldn't afford cable. as it was i had the crapiest reception on both the wb and upn, but those really were the only shows i watched and i was poor. i loaned my tapes out muchly...those on the first floor sometimes can't get the reception. maybe they work and have no vcr or no tv. and who's to say that a 'fan' has to watch every episode and be "counted". like that means anything anyway (see angel, the show). so if my friends watched it later and DID connect with seasons 6-7, i guess they're not in that vast majority so they don't "count" as the "audience"? B.S.

Think of it this way, how many people DO carry UPN but don't have the internet and instead wrote letters to Joss and complained about season 6? SMG didn't quite like it herself.


You may like watching "people suffer" in your programming as for me? I don't get my kicks by watching people go through pain. It's kind of disturbing. But that's just me.

Let's just agree to disagree.

i said that i learned about myself from watching that...way different thing, man. open your peepers. it informed me about life--an imperfect life at that; one that resembles in some fashion, my own. so, seriously, don't try to make me into a bad person by implying something like i'm sadistic (like to watch people suffer) and then say 'well let's just agree to disagre'.i just don't downshift that fast.
but yeah, thanks for the insult and run. that was cool.
