Illustmaker me

Let's get serious, not

So, I've been amusing myself recently by going over to Television Without Pity and reading the recaps of Buffy and Angel. The recappers seem very annoyed at Spike for turning good, which strikes me as really, really off the mark, especially given what they were complaining about, none of which had to do with Spike being evil, per se. All of it had to do with Spike losing his sense of humor... and quite frankly, that is the problem with the later BtVS episodes (and quite a few of the later AtS episodes). Which got me thinking about fantasy in general, and its tendency toward the turgid.
