Hey, chrisisall, why won't you submit a picture?
You got me all curious with the Mark Hamill thing - and my curiosity gets annoyed after a while if it doesn't get satisfied.

And I'm sure you're really very Rileyish.

Riley's girl FLF.

Now then FLF - you have to submit your own photo before you can ask others too!

No - you see, I have the perfect excuse in that my gorram computer's broke at home (has been since around November), and owing to the lack of pictures of me on any other computer, I guess you'll just have to wait until it's fixed.
This will hopefully be within the next few weeks - I mean, my Dad's an IT teacher and we've not had the internet at home since November - what's that about? But anyway, as soon as it's up and running, I will do.

So get a move on Signor Chrisisall!

Impatience is not a virtue FLF (452).

Well Chrisisall claims to be digital camera & scannerless...

I suppose I believe him - but I can't help thinking the Photo 'Verse won't be complete until he's in there!

i would have liked to have riley known that buffy tried to stop him too, really would have shifted things around. much like the tiny bit of revelation in season 7 of buffy when it was almost slipped out that xander didn't tell buffy back in becoming, that willow was doing the spell. i love moments like that.

I think we're all forgetting that Chrisisall has yet to see S6 and so all of the above stuff about As You Were is majorly spoilery...

But at end Buffy tells Riley "That night I never got the chance to tell you how sorry I was about what happened between us."

This line makes no sense because that's not why she was trying to catch Riley before he left. She was trying to catch him before he left to tell him to stay.

Maybe Buffy's last line to Riley in "As You Were" is more open to interpretation than I think it is. I can understand why Buffy would be sorry she never got the chance to tell Riley how sorry she was about what happened between them. But she says "that night". And "that night" can only refer to the night she was trying to not let him go.

So what's frustrating is that in "As You Were" Buffy's parting words to Riley refer to something that wasn't the case. I think the writers just screwed up.

More importantly, there was a missed opportunity to deal with a very important development in the lives of both these characters. 'Cause even if Riley has gotten Buffy out of his system, I would think it would blow him away to find out that Buffy had tried to stop him. Because that little tidbit of knowledge would completely change his perception of their relationship. I guess Sam tells him on the way to Nepal. Or maybe not. But I would have liked to have seen Buffy tell Riley she tried to stop him. And see his reaction.

At least that's the way I see it. But if someone can tell me why what Buffy said to Riley at the end there makes sense, please explain it to me.



i think you've explained it all pretty well there yourself if you think about it. buffy wanted to say it, started to say it, then realised that she couldn't. it wouldn't have been fair of her to dump something like that on him, throwing a spanner into his marriage so it was a kinda quick recovery thing.

Hey, that's okay, actually at this point, the more I find out, the more I'm willing to look at. I mean it sounds better than I imagined. I was thinking maybe he'd be a vampire or something horrible would happen to him.

If I can borrow one I will Gorram it!
If you have to know in a hurry, go rent the dvd of 'Toxic Avenger 4: Citizen Toxie', I did a bunch of stunts in it, and if you freeze it at the right moments, you can at least get an idea of what I look like.
I don't own the dvd myself, just a tape the stunt co-ordinator gave me, but you can almost see me real good in one shot of a group of Hitler clones with guns before a fight scene, I'm like in the second row just right of center, if memory serves. I'm also the cop driving the chase car, the pedestrian who is almost run over, and the only guy tossed over a wall in a four way split screen during a fight.
Be prepared though, poor taste is the cornerstone of this flick.

Back to Riley:
I thought his confrontation with Angel was great. It had me smiling and wincing in equal parts.

Tee hee! Anyone got those DVDs?! First person to submit a screencap of Chrisisall wins, well nothing actually...! Just the satisfaction of a job well done.

Loved the bit between Angel & Riley! But then it's always fun watching Angel get all sulky over perceived rivals...hey, that's what they should have done - have Angel turn into Angelus (for whatever reason) and rip Parker's throat out...!

Damn - and there I was thinking I was being subtle!

I'm trying to remember but I'm pretty sure I didn't like him even before he cheated on Buffy, but to be fair maybe that was because I already knew Riley was going to the new love interest and so the Parker thing was never going to go anywhere.

Unlike you, Jaina, I hate moments like that. I find them frustrating. The truth starts to come out about something very important. Willow says "Hey, I never said that!" So, I think Buffy should have said something to Xander along the lines of "You lied to me?! Willow didn't say 'Kick his ass'!?" But instead they gloss over it and don't deal with it.

eviltobz: I don't think Buffy started to say it. She said the line that (to me) doesn't make sense. And even if she was starting to tell him, Riley interrupts her, putting an end to that converstation. And besides, she pretty much told Sam. So if there was a spanner to be thrown, Buffy threw it. And if she can tell Sam she can tell Riley. And I think she should have. Just to clear the air. And I again I wanted to see the characters deal with this stuff.

But grounded is right. We're getting too spoilery for Chrisisall.

That was unforgiveable. I honestly couldn't believe they'd brought it up so many years after the fact and then didn't resolve it!

Yeah, Grounded, it was unforgivable wasn't it? After all that time the truth finally comes out and...nothing. It's on the list of Things I Don't Like About Season 7. And it's a long list.

But let's see what Chrisisall's reaction is to Season 5. Especially since he's anti-Spike. I wonder what his reaction will be to that one particularly important episode which concerns Spike. I'm bettin' you know the one I mean.

Really? I'm actually very much a Pro-Fiver. It just goes to show once again that we all love this show yet within that opinions are widely diverse.

I'll bet one of the other two is that one that is extremely dramatic and powerful (trying not to spoil anything for Chrisisall).

I wonder if there's one episode that absolutely everybody loves or likes a lot. Like, is there anybody out there who hates, say..."Doppelgangland"?

I think you'll find some yummy goodness in S5
and I personally hope that you'll hang in there for S6
IMO the musicial is Joss' greatest achievement EVER
it really deserves to be seen, and enjoyed.
I've never seen any musical in my life that is such a perfect combination of interesting plot, and wonderful songs & dance numbers that directly relate to that plot (and the over-all season story arc)

I'm also a BIG fan of the S6 Big Bad
and if you can stay unspoiled for the finale
it KICKS @SS!

of course we are getting ahead of ourselves...
but to tie into the thread topic:
Riley returns in S6! LOL
