Season Six Finished

I just finished watching the final episode of Season Six earlier tonight. This is the "dark" season of Buffy. Usually this is the season most fans start talking about their disappointment in the show. I disagree. I think this season ranks as one of their best. It is dark. A lot darker than previous seasons, but their is humor mixed in as well, perhaps just not as much as we're used in Buffy. This season deals with the Scooby gang growing up and having to become adults and dealing with life and death and all the other stuff in between that we would rather not have to cope with. Buffy brought back to life, pulled from Heaven and not the Hell that the gang thought she was in....The penultimate episode where Evil Willow says she is the most powerful and suddenly finds herself thrown backwards and Giles "I'd like to test that theory."....the Trio going from laughable buffons to killers....of course the singing episode...and the ending, where Xander, powerless, bumbling Xander saves the world by talking to Willow about her yellow crayon. I've read where some fans thought this ending sucked, that it was stupid, but I thought it was great. It showed the humanity of the characters.

Now it's on to the last season.

I was always a little frustrated that they turned Xander into a bit of a buffoon through the years. I preferred the grown up, responsible Xander of the last couple of seasons.
