But there were a lot of people who were unhappy with the season. I was part of a large group who would either get together to watch Buffy or call each other during the show, and by the end of season 6, I was the only one left watching. These aren't people who post on message boards or send letters to the writers, they're just ordinary viewers who decided to change the channel.

And their reason for changing the channel wasn't that the show dealt with dark and/or adult themes, it's that the show got boring. Every week Buffy was depressed, every week she was miserable about something - life sucked, wha, wha, wha. And they got tired of the weekly Buffy/Spike "Punch and Judy Show," which became so predictable you could see the train wreck coming from a mile away. Even this wouldn't have been a problem if there'd been another plot to break up the monotony, but when the real Big Bad of the season was Buffy's depression, it was hard to find a distraction.

I know that depression can't be cured over night (if at all), but on TV there's a reason why you don't see a driver circling the block for an hour, looking for a parking place - it might be real life, but it's not interesting.

Always coming in, making a point driving it home without being nasty, snarky but by just being nice and intelligent about it. DAMN IT!!!

;) HUGS!
