Autumn: Road (Winding)

Thirty Days Buffy Meme. Day #10 - Least favourite season

Duly snaggled from this_years_me.

As we have recently embarked on yet another re-watch of Buffy, I thought it would be a good time to do this meme.

Day #10: Least favourite season

Another not terribly easy one.

However, I'm going to go with Season Four mainly because that was when things changed. We had Buffy and Willow going to college and Xander going to work and Giles still being at Sunnydale High and Angel leaving *sniffles* and Cordelia leaving and Oz leaving part of the way through. Oh and let's not forget the introduction of Riley and his involvement with the Initiative and the whole Buffy/Riley romance (which I disliked intensely).

I don't like change *wry grin* and with Season Four bringing about such an amazing change it was quite difficult to get used to all the differences and the changes to relationships due to them no longer being together at school. I know it's realistic, as things do change and friendships evolve or even end and they couldn't stay at school forever.

The season felt more bitty than other seasons and took a while to get into and adjust and adapt to the changes - in some ways it was like starting afresh again and not in a positive way.

There were some good episodes and story-lines in Season Four, but generally I wasn't as keen on it as the three preceding seasons and over all because of all the changes I was less keen on it than the following three seasons, even if I disliked some of the story-lines later on more.
