Buffy Series Finale Tonight

roothog writes "I just finished watching the series finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, an episode that sparks with the writing of Joss Whedon. Strangely, there weren't any commercials :). One of the best written shows on television comes to an end tonight in North America. A very accurate script summary is available for any spoiler-seekers. I'd suggest skipping the spoilers: it's worth the wait...for a season 7 episode..."

Buffy's Colon Cleaned Tonight (-1)

colon cleaner (671937) | more than 11 years ago | (#6001879)

Let's talk stools.

The stool tells you a lot about your colon health. If it's dark brown in color, and it sinks, and it stinks, that's not good. And don't feel bad, that's the way most people are. What you want to see is light brown color, which means it's full of fresh bile from the liver, very mild odor, and a stool that floats. We're talking low-density here folks. The more compaction you have the darker the color and the faster it sinks. Compaction is not good. Also, moving bowels should be SIMPLE. If the veins are popping out of your neck and you feel like your doing the bench press, you NEED to cleanse your colon.

When you do the cleanse, for the first few days....things are a little weird. But you know you're cleansed when you see the above good stuff happening, and you are eliminating at least 2-3 times per day.

Cleansing your colon is a 30-day process. No need to change your current diet. Its also very economical at under $52. You may be very surprised at some of the benefits you will receive besides just losing 1-5 lbs of cr*p from your body and brightening your future health.

People have reported more energy, less allergies, clearing of acne, cessation of migraines, and many other results, not to mention restored regularity. When your body is void of old, poisonous toxins that are constantly being reabsorbed through the colon walls, it can begin to heal again. And when the colon walls are clean, the good nutrients from your food and supplements can be absorbed again. You will be thrilled with the results.

Spin-Off Idea (1)

Skyshadow (508) | more than 11 years ago | (#6002155)

I think a terrific spin-off would be to have Caleb (easily the coolest new character this year) survive the final episode, then to follow him around the US as he goes around doing bad in a sort of American Gothic-ish manner.

I think it'd fly if you could find the right writers... I wonder if Neil Gaiman would be up for a season of episodic TV writing...

Neither of my sibling posts are really "commandline" versions. If you dont have the GTK libraries, and a metric assload of X-specific libraries for Python and all this crap, it wont work.

I spent wayy too much time trying to get it working on a bare bones slackware box (no X or any other fancy gui crap). It needed this library, which needed that one, which needed another one.

After about 30 megs of bloat installed on my system to run a 6k script, I still wasnt close..

lightspawn (155347) | more than 11 years ago | (#6002076)

It's nice to be able to see the episodes without the censoring we get on Sky and the BBC over here...

What censoring? I know shows from Europe are censored when they're shown in the states, and that since there are more commercials here, the euro versions of some american shows are actually longer sometimes. I never knew shows were also censored the other way around. What's missing on Sky/BBC?

I remember somebody mentioning a short scene from Babylon 5 that was missing in the UK (the Narn ambassador drawing blood from his hand, each drop symbolizing the Narn dead in the wars). Cutting this scene made no sense at all.

why does this come up every time Slashdot posts an article on Buffy? I am a nerd, and it does matter to me. There are plenty of other nerds who also care about Buffy. The CNN article even makes a point of saying that nerds and other social outcasts could relate to the characters, and that this fueled the show's cult following. I mean, if you need a scifi tie-in, Nathan Fillion (the actor playing the major villain in the finale) was the captain on Firefly.

The Lone Gunmen are DEAD?!? Thanks for the spoiler, prick. I guess I should really catch up on the shows stored on my TiVO.

Seriously: I think that Buffy has taken a serious step down this year. It's disappointing that the last few episodes end up concentrating on insignificant new characters (Kennedy, Wood) and got away from the things which made the scoobies a cool group of heros in the first place (how many superheroes prepare for battle by doing research?).

But oh well. Must be a universal truth that while all good stories deserve an ending, and not all good stories have good ones (Neil Stephenson fans, represent!).

I think that this show IS totally revelant to Slashdot. It comprises a genre, which totally appeals to nerds. It's so different for the kind of shows that we usually watch. Usually we are watching Space-Based sci fi, like Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, etc. But here is a down to Earth show that takes place on Earth. It's the classic Vampire horror, reborn into a modern reality. (Not to mention the hot girls!) It has everything that appeals to geeks.

Re:Good Science Fiction (2, Insightful)

pldms (136522) | more than 11 years ago | (#6002149)

It has everything that appeals to geeks.

I don't know. The series initially had great geek appeal in the form of Willow, who spent years showing the Sunnydale Water Company that the system holding the sewer plans was hopelessly insecure.

Alas Willow went to college, discovered Wicca, and her laptop gathered dust.

The message for geeks is "you'll grow out of it". And, er, become a lesbian. And become addicted to magic.

Ok. Confusing message. But anti-geek.

(btw the finale demonstrates that you can't fix a bad season in the last episode. Good explosions, mind)

But when Star Trek Nemesis or the Matrix comes out, they cant laud enough praise on it. Just brilliant. The robots are really people? Wow. True shakespeare.

And now we're to believe that a TV show, from the Dubbya-Bee no less, about a teeny bopper girl who hunts boogeymans is somehow the 'best written show' on television?

The movie was outstanding (4, Funny)

eGabriel (5707) | more than 11 years ago | (#6002018)

Rutger "Batty" Hauer, and Paul "PeeWee" Reubens stole the show. Kristy Swanson was beautiful and perfect, and the cast was filled out with both stars and people who would become stars. It was hilarious (the Paul Reubens death scene was classic), smart, silly, and fun.

Because of this, I held off on watching the TV series. How good could that be compared to the film? I finally caught a couple of episodes over the last couple of weeks, and it does look like a clever show, but they should have called it something else, and let the film stand by itself.

Re:The movie was outstanding (1)

Rorgg (673851) | more than 11 years ago | (#6002100)

I also enjoyed the movie, but the TV series differed from it significantly. Joss Whedon wasn't happy with what happened with the script and wanted something closer to his original vision, thus the show, and it succeeded quite well for about 3 1/2 seasons.

After that, it's had its moments, but not quite where it was. Still worth watching, though. I'll tune in tonight.

Giles looks at the crater and says he doesn' understand. How did that happen. Buffy says simply : "Spike." They walk toward the edge of the crater, smoke in front of her, and we see Sunnydale is a black crater. In front of it is a sign: WELCOME TO SUNNYDALE. After a beat, the sign creakingly topples back into the crater. We see everyone now, the girls milling about, the core group nearer the crater, and we push through the smoke to see them: Buffy, Dawn, Giles, Xander, Willow, Faith coming out to join them. Keep pushing slowly in as the all look out at the end of Sunnydale...Faith says its looks like the Hellmouth is officially closed for business. Giles makes a comment how there is another Hellmouth in Cleveland (surprisingly all the demons were dumb enough to go to the Hellmouth in Cali....I hope this is a joke...) Xander says they saved the world and Willow says that they changed the world. She can feel them. All over..Slayers awakening. They talk about looking for them. We return to mall jokes when Giles says: "Yes, because the mall was actually in Sunnydale, so no hope of going there tomorrow..." Dawn says.."We destroyed the Mall? I fought on the wrong side..." Xander makes jokes about all the stores gone.....(am I the only one worried about Anya and Spike dying here?) CowboyNeal eats another tub of KFC.

They talk about how they have a lot of work ahead of them. Faith says she just wants to sleep for a week. (Yo..yo..yo..) Willow says the FE is scrunched (5 dollars to any who can crack that for me...) Willow asks what they are going to do now. Faith says that they are not the only chosen ones anymore. They could get a life.

Dawn asks Buffy again..and I will quote the exact end from here..

"Buffy looks at them, looks back at the crater, and we are in full close up as she considers the question, a small smile creeping onto her lips as she decides on her answer."



Can someone please explain... (3, Interesting)

WIAKywbfatw (307557) | more than 11 years ago | (#6002056)

What's the big attraction with Buffy? What makes it so worthy of attention? Why does Buffy count as "News for Nerds" or "Stuff that matters" whilst the similar Charmed doesn't rate a mention?

I'm not suggesting that Charmed should register on Slashdot's radar, rather I'm asking why Buffy does. Can someone please explain it to me?

I've watched several episodes of Buffy, as well as a handful of Charmed. I can't say I've ever for a split second thought that either show had much merit but, obviously, there are those out there that disagree with me?

Not that I think she's that attractive but is it a Sarah Michelle Gellar thing? I've read so many posts on Slashdot, in various discussions about quality television and I find it amazing that Buffy is even mentioned in the same breath as shows such as CSI, The West Wing and 24.

I'm not looking to troll here - seriously, that's an honest statement - but just what is it about Buffy that has some of you ga-ga over it? Schoolboy fantasies? Demonic possession? Please elaborate.

Nah, I don't think so. While I think there've been a number of reasonably attractive women over the years on the show, they're not really doing much for me. Personally, I enjoy the writing and the consistent mythos for the world they build. Plus, there have been a handful of episodes that stand singly as just great works of television.

No seriously, it is... I'm leaving your planet "Earth" tonight if everything goes as planned. Unfortunately, we don't get the internet in outerspace. My planet "sWR LSEf" is 91 million "light years" away from your planet. May we some day find peace and harmony together.


P.S. To infinity, and beyond!!

I watched it and it ended as well as it could have. The problem with this season has been the lack of definition. The fact that the First appears as dead people means that it doesn't really seem to have any strong characters of its own. They tried to have intermediate baddies like the Seekers. the uber-vamp, and finally Caleb but none of them really developed. Also there was alot of ambiguity in what the First wanted to do other than kill all the potential slayers and do general evil, along with any clear idea about what they were actually fighting. Many of the episodes suffered because there was no clearly defined goal or threat. In addition there were a lot of writing problems earlier in the season like everyone leaving town in fear of an apocalypse that wasn't manifesting itself at all. Over all this has probably been the weakest season due to these problems. That being said Joss Whedon did a very good job of pulling it up for the last episode and bringing the show to a good conclusion. Not one of their best episode but certainly one of the best this season, either way regardless of what I say you'll watch it anyways for the closure if nothing else :)

damn it... the show without its coolest part (1)

First of all, I should say that I've never believed Buffy's gonna make it to /. , but well, .. sh1t happens.....;oP

Strangely, there weren't any commercials :)

Come on, now, what's the point of watching Buffy without the 320lbs guy doing his barbacue???... Sure BtVS was (hehe.. past tense) one of the "most stupidest" shows ever....

<mega small font>
I still cann't understand how did I managed to watch all the 6*22 + 1*12 episodes... *cough*,*cough*.....

Submitted this, but of course:

  • 2003-04-30 15:01:48 How should Buffy end? (polls,tv) (rejected)

within like 10 seconds of submitting it :)

How should Buffy end?

( ) David Lynch Ending: The entire series was just a masterbatory fantasy for Zander. Somehow he still manages to lose an eye.

( ) Kubrick Ending: Calib chases buffy around the hedge maze and ends up freezing to death.

( ) Spielberg Ending: Buffy is revived by alien robots in the year 3010 who create the illusion of Angel for one day and then they euthanize her.

( ) Lucas Ending: "Buffy, you've turned off your targetting computer! What's wrong?"

( ) Joss Whedon Ending: The gangs carrers' suddenly end when they decide to write a sci-fi western.

( ) CowboyNeil Ending: CowboyNeil doesn't end.

Can someomne explain me the geek apeal of the Buffy show? I live in Russia and one of the channels has just started airing the first season. Honestly I am not impressed with the script or the girl for that matter.

I've watched Buffy from day one, but I won't be tuning in to see the season finale tonight. After three great seasons in high school, the show stumbled in its fourth season, losing three cast members to a spinoff and one to a movie career. However, the show successfully integrated most of the characters by the fifth season and things were looking up again.

However, the loss of the high school setting was a major problem, with the show first focusing on college, then the magic shop, and finally getting stuck in the claustrophobic confines of Buffy's house in season 5 as Buffy focused on her sick mother and magical sister. Sunnydale faded away as the setting became smaller and smaller, leaving us to wonder what happened to the world that Buffy is supposed to be saving. The last time I recall Buffy going out of her way to save a normal person was the guy she saved in the alley in The Gift, two years ago.

The sixth season started out well, both in terms of quality and ratings (a 4.3 Neilsen), but quickly ran into problems after the excellent musical episode. Somehow magic has become addictive and we end up with Willow strung out at a magic crack house in the episode Wrecked. Don't ask me to explain it, or the producers for the matter, as showrunner Marti Noxon admitted on last week A&E Biography that she didn't understand the story arcs that she's run on Buffy. Unfortunately, season 6 continued to get worse with Spike attempting to rape Buffy and Willow's lesbian lover getting shot, resulting in Willow becoming evil and going off to destroy the world in a perfect example of the lesbian cliche perpetrated in so many books and movies.

Season 7 made a token effort to fix the characters after destroying them in the previous season, but quickly focused on throwing spinoff ideas at the viewers, ranging from Buffy's little sister Dawn, guest star and dark slayer Faith, and a multitude of Slayers-in-training whose names fans couldn't recall from one week to the next. None of them stuck, but the combination of losing the focus on the core characters fans loved and having the villain of the season be the First Evil, who can't do anything but talk, made for a boring season with Buffy's lowest ratings ever. Over half the season's episodes had Neilsen ratings below last season's lowest rated episode, Seeing Red, which had a 2.7.

Unfortunately, I'm glad the show is over and wish that it had ended a couple of years earlier. I'll still cherish the early days though and buy the first five seasons on DVD once they're all available.

ARGH (-1, Flamebait)

Man i wish those marketing guys who where paying for all those GPS articles would buy some more articles on slashdot.

The Segway articles are so much lamer and the ads for tv and movies are just pathetic.

I am not a huge fan of Buffy, but I recognised and enjoyed the skill and vision with which the episodes I hopped on to were written and put together.
I always find that good programmes like Buffy, which are not to my usual taste, whilst failing to engross me, do not irritate [] me [] beyond [] belief [] .
