Additionally, there are criticisms that Noxon was drawing from personal experience in some of the decisions in S6. I've never understood these particular criticisms, and I can't recall ever hearing a male showrunner held to the same standard. A woman writing about her own issues, relating to the characters she's portraying, working through her own experiences, is something to be criticized? Okay. I can't help but speculate that there's an aversion to having anything linked to "women's issues" in our TV viewing.

So much agreement there. People attribute her experiences to "everything bad about Buffy from Season 6 came from Marti's experiences." Really though, Buffy wasn't the only problem. There was the whole Magic is addictive thing which was never, ever mentioned before, as well as ALL THE OTHER CHARACTERS ignoring the fact that Buffy was acting totally OOC. Except, y'know, Marti imparted her experiences for Seeing Red so Season 6 must be her fault. GRRR.
