Willow's Problem is Not Power. This is an analysis of Willow's Season Six meltdown. Slightly dated but still worth a read.

Oh no, not that guy. Why do they even bother after they quit watching Buffy?
To play the devil's advocate here, he did represent a significant minority of fans who felt very dischanted with BtVS after Tara was killed off.

But though I enjoy his writing, I accept that killing off Tara was not done as part of some 'agenda'.

And whilst I miss her on the show, I think it was a very dramatic and very powerful way of sending Willow over the edge. If Tara wasn't around , it would have been Oz who would have got killed off.

I'm curious as to what was meant by this, um, sound.
It means the previous post said what I'd have said had I been there first.

I'm tired of disgruntled fans who stick around just to sully names and sow discontent. It's that love/hate thing that flips like a switch and it's rather scary. If the show isn't written to your liking anymore, why not bugger off and find joy elsewhere.

Just read this quote somewhere:
"Clark Gable once remarked to David Niven that, when it came to the contract between a star and his public, the public had read the small print and the star hadnít. All it took was one tiny violation and the adoring crowds turned into a baying mob."

As someone wrote not too long ago, "You can never argue with a fan; you can only enrage him [or her]."
