Buffy showed tonight. I hate to say that the dialogue sucked in places. I won't be that kind. Buffy used to have the most fun dialogue. Last night, it was like someone wrote like they wanted to write for Buffy, but they knew the words, but the didn't get the attitude behind the words.
What I used to like about Buffy was that "dive in head first and damn the rest" feel of the writing. Now that the writers are trying to write well, with full drama and lots of oomph, they lost punch. A shame.
