Torchwood: The Complete Second Season

Darker, deeper, and far more gut-wrenching than its predecessor, Season Two forces us to examine what it means to be human in a town filled with alien forces.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Seventh Season

Joss Whedon says, 'We sort of worship at the same altar. Me and my staff are the biggest Buffy nerds alive.'

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Fourth Season

That is, the season that many fans have called out as disjointed and erratic, maddening and disappointing. To a point, the complaint is justified, as Joss Whedon and company tend to concede. But only to a point.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Lord of the Nerds

Buffy is often mentioned specifically as a "female empowerment" show, but one of its most inviting aspects is the way its cast has always been uncommonly split between guys and girls.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

As to the rejection of my understanding of the connection between lesbianism and witchcraft on 'Buffy', I have never said that BVS's creator or writers made a conscious (and consciously homophobic) decision to directly cast lesbianism as social pathology and physical addiction.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

To think of Willow and Tara only in terms of their lesbianism is to do a disservice to lovers who were fully realized, regardless of their gender or orientation.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

This was a tragic ending to one of prime-time television's most engaging love stories. More disturbing, as well as more socially and politically troublesome, however, is that Tara's death completes what has become a rather homophobic and pathological representation of lesbian desires and relationships over the course of the past season.
