Buffy rehash, season 2

We're rewatching the early seasons of Buffy, since Steve got me the boxed set for Christmas (he is truly of the awesome), and seasons 1 and 2 have held up beautifully.

Random notes that occur to me in the rewatch (no real spoilers):

Angel, nice makeup, man.

Ah, Spike, I see you got that accent sorted out after a few episodes. Started with something rather different, didn't we?

Kendra, I love your accent, wherever the hell it's from. (The Caribbean, I assume.)

Drusilla and Cordelia both amuse me greatly this time around instead of annoying me. (Cordy: "Tact is just not saying true stuff!")

In general it's interesting watching Angel interact with people like Cordy and Spike in these early days, knowing how things change by the end of the Angel series.

Also interesting, and amusing, to see how often they throw Jonathan in as a random student. Haven't spotted Warren or Andrew yet, though.

I still adore Giles. I am even kind of thinking Buffy should marry him when this all blows over after season 7 or 8 or whatever. He's older, yeah, but not near as old as her vamp lovers. Go ahead, be scandalized.

I love the forgotten funny lines that spring out and make me laugh all over again. For example, Spike's deadpan in "Becoming, Part 1," upon viewing the stone that imprisons a demon: "It's a big rock. I can't wait to tell my friends. They don't have a rock this big." Or Willow in "Reptile Boy," exploding at Giles and Angel: "(to Giles) You never let her do anything except work and patrol! I know she's the chosen one, but you're killing her with the pressure! She's sixteen going on forty! (to Angel) And you! You're gonna live forever and you don't have time for a cup of coffee??"

That's all for now...or at least, all the toddler will allow me.
