Hey, it's Tuesday where I live, and who doesn't want to do the Something Blue poll right now? Have at it!






Poll #1770025
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 149

1. At the beginning, Buffy is pondering a potential relationship with Riley. She says: "Part of me believes that real love and passion have to go hand in hand with pain and fighting." Is this true for the Buffster?

View Answers
Yes. She needs that in her relationships.
41 (27.7%)
No. She'd be just fine without all the pain and such.
27 (18.2%)
Hell, she'd be better in a relationship without all the angst.
41 (27.7%)
I have another answer
22 (14.9%)
Not sure.
17 (11.5%)

2. I can already predict the results to these next two, but let's do a couple chemistry scales. In this episode, Buffy and Riley have a picnic where the topic wanders on to driving. A hot and heavy moment is shared between them. On the scale below, rate the chemistry between this couple. 1 = None; 10 = SO MUCH CHEMISTRY.

3. Moving on, this episode also has Buffy and Spike bespelled into an engagement. They spend a large chunk of the episode snogging and groping. Rate their chemistry on the scale. 1 = None; 10 = SO MUCH CHEMISTRY.

4. Buffy mentions at the end that she may get Willow to do a forgetting spell on her to block out the memories of the engagement to Spike. Think she ever did it?

Yeah. Buffy was pretty icked out over it.
1 (0.7%)
No. She secretly enjoyed it.
37 (25.0%)
No. She never got around to it.

5. At the end, Buffy seems much more amenable to a relationship with Riley, a "decent, reliable" guy. Is she considering this relationship because she wants it or because it seems like the sensible thing to do?

View Answers
She genuinely wants to date Riley. She digs him.
3 (2.0%)
She feels like it's the sensible thing to do to get away from her "bad boy" thing.
28 (18.9%)
Bit of both
114 (77.0%)
I have another answer.
3 (2.0%)
Not sure.
0 (0.0%)

6. Speaking of that "bad boy" thing, does Angel qualify as such?

View Answers
Yeah. He was totally a bad boy when she fell for him.
60 (40.5%)
Not really.
55 (37.2%)
I have another answer.
16 (10.8%)
Not sure.
17 (11.5%)

7. Oz left several episodes ago in Wild at Heart. Do Willow's post-Oz doldrums go on too long?

View Answers
Yeah. It gets annoying.
11 (7.5%)
No. It takes some time to get over that.
131 (89.1%)
I have another answer.
2 (1.4%)
Not sure.
3 (2.0%)

Agreed on the definition of badboyness. For me, a typical bad boy would be akin to Travolta's character in Grease. (Can't remember the name, since I saw the film when it was reissued in cinemas, some 12 years ago if memory serves.) The preening, the leather, the cars, the smokes, the fawning friends, the crushing girls, and an endless well of seduction stories for anyone who'd listen. (Only without the singing, obviously. Unless it's in a rock band, and not a musical.) Angel really seems more just a poseur here - getting his 'interesting' points on being older and mysterious.
