Day 07: Least Favorite Episode of Your Favorite TV Series:
And the winner is:
I have never been a huge Xander fan. This doesn't mean I don't like him- I just find him the least interesting character on a show full of awesome characters. And maybe that's how it's supposed to be- the everyday, the normal one. He has his moments, don't get me wrong- When he talks to Dawn in season 7 about being the normal one, the one who sees, I thought it really showed how he grew and matured. I liked him a lot then.
I just find this episode pretty boring. yes, there is a bomb, a hellmouth creature, Xander losing his virginity, etc. I just... don't care for it very much. Technically, the concept of it is excellent- taking what is usually the "B" background storyline and making it the "A" one- a concept that Star Trek: The Next Generation also used in the excellent episode "Lower Decks" (did I just cement my place in history as a huge geek? I didn't even have to look up the name of that episode!).
