YMMV / Buffyverse

Go To

  • Complete Monster: See here
  • Dork Age: 2003 saw Buffy the Vampire Slayer's very divisive final season and the much-reviled fourth season of Angel. During this period, Joss Whedon was overseeing both shows, plus Firefly (all three aired on different networks), so they didn't quite have his full attention.
  • Magnificent Bastard: See here
  • Only the Creator Does It Right: The works produced outside of Joss Whedon's direct involvement (Expanded Universe) are usually considered part of an Alternate Universe or didn't happen. These usually include the novels and most of the comics besides the Buffy comics, Fray, and Angel: After The Fall'' (though some don't consider any of the comics to be).

  • Romantic Plot Tumor: The Buffy/Angel elements in "End Of Days"/"Chosen" and the entire episode "The Girl in Question" are argued as Romantic Plot Tumors for their respective series, whose leads both changed and developed drastically different lives from the one they had together. Making it worse was their proximity to the end of each series, which used precious screentime that could have been dedicated to setting up the storyline of the finale.
