Christopher Marlowe,

Buffy would do well enough, but how would vampires fare? I can recall back in the day when bronzers and other fans would discuss the ecology of vampires. How often do they need to feed (want to feed?). What's the needed ratio of prey to predator?

Biologists and ecologists have done much research on such questions and the answers could be applied to humans and vampires with at least one important caveat: most predators don't have to hide their way of life from the community.

Can we apply lessons derived from how humans deal with predators who prey on domestic animals? Perhaps, but what happens when most people in the fictional verse do not believe in vampires? Well, we frequently find dead bodies drained of blood with puncture holes in their necks. What's up with that? OTOH, maybe vamires clean-up after their meals and the community 'only' sees itself as having a missing person problem.

In the real-world, serial killers often prey on marginal people or transients - folks whose disappearance would not be quickly noticed by the local community.

All this is a reason I believe vampires would favor large cities and regions where cities merge together.

Christopher Marlowe: As someone who has lost his older (4 years) sister and his younger (4 years) brother, let me just say one day you will recall this trip with fond memories. Take some pictures. I tell people to get moving pictures with voices (video) whenever you can. They will be priceless to you in the future.


Agent Cooper: 13.8 billion years does not seem like enough time to create the universe and 4.5 billion years from a dead start created the earth and life on earth and "evolved" us to this degree, despite around 5 mass extinction events within the last 1 million years. Clearly not enough time unless we were created in a kind of paint-by-the-numbers kind of biological assembly line. Have a great Memorial Day! Thanks for your service.

If anyone should physically interfere, I believe the proper response is a few good jabs with your salad fork, which should be just to the right of the dinner fork if salad or desert is to be served. Only one or two extra stabs is acceptable once you've made your point (no pun intended.)

DO NOT under any circumstances use the dinner fork to repel the interloper, especially if dinner has not been formally served yet, as this will be frowned upon in polite social circles.

A sincere "Beg Pardon" or "Excuse Me" after you've completed your defensive action will certainly be well received by your host and fellow dinner guests.

Wolfguard
The Last Man in Europe was an early title for the novel but in a
letter dated 22 October 1948 to his publisher Fredric Warburg, eight months
before publication, Orwell wrote about hesitating between The Last Man in Europe and Nineteen Eighty-Four. Warburg suggested changing the
main title to a more commercial one.

In the novel 1985 (1978), Anthony Burgess suggests that Orwell,
disillusioned by the onset of the Cold War (194591), intended to call the
book 1948. The introduction to the Penguin Books Modern Classics
edition of Nineteen Eighty-Four reports that Orwell originally set
the novel in 1980, but that he later shifted the date to 1982, then to 1984.
The final title may also be a permutation of 1948, the year of composition.

Okay, so you're at a party and it develops into a sing-along. Perhaps a Christmas-themed party. And someone who doesn't like the way they sing, pulls out a recorder or a harmonica instead and accompanies them (and doesn't mess it up, plays competently.)Is that person still committing bad manners?

Christopher Marlowe,

Yes, the correct answer is "no", because Obama cannot run for a third term. Of
course, he may pull-off that coup. *g*

The 13 Key test makes twelve propositions about the current party-in-power and
one
proposition about the party-out-of-power. To use the model, one ask if the
proposition is true or false of the current presidency (I've been using yes or
no).

If five or less of the propositions are false, then the party-in-power remains
in
power (in this case Clinton would win).

If six or more of the propositions are false, then the party-out-of-power wins
the
election and the rascals are thrown out of office (And in this case Trump would
move
in).



ETA As I recall, the model has successfully predicted every winner of a
presidential election since 1984. It predicted around November 2007 that the
Democrats would win in November 2008. This was before Senator Obama announced he
was running.

Surrogate Trivia Girl: Amazonia.


Agent Cooper: Chadwick Boseman? Yes, he was great as Black Panther. Good accent. If he could play James Brown and Jackie Robinson, why not a comic book character?


Agent Cooper2: I mentioned this before, that I was stunned when I saw "Captain America: Civil War" and the character of Commandant Zemo (the villain) came on screen, that he looked so much like my deceased brother. He was played by Daniel Brühl who looked familiar--I seemed to recognize him--but wasn't sure. When I looked him up, I found that HE was the one who did such a wonderful job of playing Niki Lauda in the Ron Howard movie "Rush" wherein James Hunt and Niki Lauda vied for Formula One honors in 1976. Here's a historical perspective on the movie "Rush." See it if you're looking about for something to watch (it's not, as some suspect, about Rush Limbaugh.) I remembered from 1976 the circumstances of the movie and was muchly interested.


I am currently watching Season Three (the Final Season) of "Hannibal." Interestingly, there's a Special Feature on "Avid Fannibals" who are fans of the show who are rabid (many of who are LGBT, as the show occasionally plays in THAT sandbox.) The feature illustrates that they are so fascinated with the relationships built up between the Showrunner Bryan Fuller and the fans; the fans have effectively kept the show on the air (echoes of "Buffy",) as even in the First Season the rating were horrible (the show is perhaps too intense for TV.) Well, if I may say so, they are just recreating the "Buffy" phenomenon, the original WB Bronze (where "Buffy" production people interacted with fans) and the PBP's. The immediate feedback with the fans was crucial to both creative efforts. "Hannibal" IS very well done, very thoughtfully creative, and Mads Mikkelsen is just fabulous as Hannibal Lecter.

Christopher Marlowe,

As I understand it, there was a "cure", but it was short-lived - believe it was
either temporary or followed soon by death or both. There's a more recent cure that
appears to work, but the zombie/person loses their past memories of self, etc.

Buffy returned to the morgue to find Liv standing before a monitor, her face grim.

"You find something?" Buffy asked.

"Cyanide."

"Dana was poisoned? How? By who?"

"Herself."

"No way." Buffy crossed over to the desk. "Show me"

"I saw her do it. The vision thing."

"You saw wrong."

"They're Dana's memories. You pushed her too hard."

Buffy stepped closer to Liv.

"You can't know that."

"I can. Face it Buffy. She killed herself. Because of you."

Buffy took another step closer, "I didn't..."

A slow sneer spread across Liv's face. "You're the slayer of slayers, Buffy."

Buffy shot her hand forward towards Liv's throat ... the fingers grasped nothing and with that epiphany.

"You're not so Liv after all," said Buffy as Liv dissolved before her.

Buffy woke up suddenly from her nap. She didn't get nightmares often, but this one, sadly, was not that unusual. Whenever a slayer or potential died, she felt it and always had to deal with the guilt that she was responsible. Buffy cursed herself often that she did not fully think through Willow's spell, but it was far too late for real regrets now. Buffy looked at her watch and realized she would be late for her meeting with Liv and scrambled. She decided to go with Mr. Pointy and her standard patrolling outfit tonight.



Liv sat on the park bench..it was close to getting dark, but she brought her flashlight, although with the light poles throughout the park, seeing things wasn't really an issue. She rarely came here, normally being outdoors wasn't really her thing, even before she was zombified. Liv thought to herself that it was partially that under the night lights, she looked even more scarily pale with greater shadows under her eyes. But she felt very much at peace here, enjoying the few people who passed by, the gentle breeze, the faintly grassy smell. She didn't realize she had her eyes closed until she felt, if not heard, someone approaching. It was an odd sensation, something that seems to be part of this slayer thing is.

"Hey" Buffy said. She was dressed in in red leather pants, white tee and black jacket and sensible boots. "Wasn't sure what we would find tonight, but I went with the classic slayer uniform"

Liv look down on herself with the jeans and t-shirt and figured she was alright. She noticed Buffy had a stake in her hand.
"No guns"? Liv said.

"Bullets don't work, even against demons. Stakes is pretty much an all-purpose weapon against just about everything. Meet Mr. Pointy 2000. " Buffy said, giving the stake a twirl.

"Wonder if that would work on zombies" Liv said, mildy curious.
"I don't plan to find out", Buffy said. "Do you have a general idea of where Dana would have been"
"Sorta", Liv said. "The slayer thing must be enhancing stuff, because I can sense, I guess, some sort of residue of Dana out here, mostly in that direction. I can't explain it any better".
"Huh. That might come in handy. You lead and I'll follow. I do have a spidey-sense that can tell when vampires or demons are nearby. Although it doesn't look like this town has much in the way of monsters"

"Lots of zombies, good ones and bad ones, but beyond that, no other kinds." Liv said, getting up and heading straight ahead. The park was pretty sparse as far as trees, but there were some stately ones and Liv followed the 'scent' to one of the few spots that had a cluster of bushes next to a very large, old tree. As she got closer she kept an eye on the ground, looking to pick up a physical trail that she could see. She saw a scrap of something on a brach and had a closer look. It didn't turn out to be anything she could recognize, but she saw footprints from behind the bush and she noticed that there were faint claw marks on the tree close to the height of the bush.

Christopher Marlowe,

OK. Dana was extracted from LA by Buffy's slayers. Where did they take her and what has she been doing for the last 12 years? How did she end up Seattle? What lead Buffy to come to Seattle? Dana's death? Was it a surprise or was Dana, Seattle's slayer-in-residence? Something else?

ETA If Dana was stationed in Seattle, then did she have a watcher? If so, where's the Watcher? Might the Watcher be (1) also dead, (2) a suspect, (3) in jeopardy (clock's ticking)

Liv went to look at Dana herself again. She reached out and gently smoothed the hair. It's was very strange to see Dana lying there, yet feeling Dana inside her. Dana may have looked like a normal woman, but she knew that Dana felt herself to be a monster. Something evil that need to be somehow burned out of her body.

Liv didn't ask to be a zombie and for the most part she felt relatively 'normal'. Feeling Dana brought up all sorts of feelings inside her that Liv wasn't quite sure she wanted to deal with yet. Liv managed to consider herself as living with an incurable illness, or incurable at the moment, and that sort of distanced herself from what she was, a zombie.

Zombies were monsters in movies, after all. Unfeeling, mindless ones. Is she really fooling herself into thinking she was any different from them, ultimately?

Christopher Marlowe,

When I sat down to think of some prompt lines, automatically asked, "Who's the story about?" When the episode ends, how will it have affected that character? So, is the story about Liv or is it about Buffy?

If it's about Liv, then one way it can go plays off the earlier lines where Liv sees herself through Dana's eyes - evil demon.

- Dana is found dead
- Liv eats brains
- Liv takes on aspects of Dana
- Liv sees zombie self as bad
( middle of story)

Might Liv begin to wonder if what she feels is really Dana's feelings or perhaps her own feelings that she's been keeping tamped down?


OTOH, if the story is about Buffy, then it falls back into the Buffy/Ats verse where not all demons evil, e.g. Clem or Lorne. As I recall, during 7th season one of the potentials says or ask Buffy ~ demons are evil (?) and Buffy starts ~ well, not all ~ but she doesn't get to finish the thought.

The verse also establishes that slayers do not kill humans, even if some believe they deserve killing (6th season). The Slayer does not have the authority1 to judge and execute humans. But, in the early seasons all demons were fair game. Later that wasn't true. What guidelines did Buffy use to decide which demon to slay and which demon not? Intuition in the moment? Situational ethics?

Now Buffy leads 500 odd slayers. She cannot directly lead each slayer on patrol or slayers on a mission. What guidelines have been established for them to use in deciding whether or not a particular demon needs to be slayed or spared?


1 Authority, who grants it and by what authority?

rom a report by the Economist about accusations that conservative content is curtailed on facebook.


Yet the hullabaloo points to an indisputable fact: Facebook is a juggernaut, with growing political influence. The social network has 1.6 billion monthly users, around 200m of them in America.

On average, Americans spend 30% of their mobile-internet time on Facebooks platforms, which include Instagram and WhatsApp. Around 90% of American adults who use Facebook pass the equivalent of two workdays a month on the social network. Facebook is no longer just a destination for virtual socialising but a media company that can shape public opinion.






Advertisement















Facebook can transform peoples moods and political behaviour. One study, published in 2014, showed that users moods could be influenced by whether the posts they saw on Facebook were joyful or depressing. Another study, published in Nature in 2012, determined that around 340,000 people probably turned up to vote in the congressional elections of 2010 because of a message they saw on Facebook, and were especially likely to do so if a friend shared the call-to-action.

Christopher Marlowe,

The Chinese historical memory leads many to value harmony. TPTB in China certainly do, because disharmony has the potential to lead to their downfall. They know criticism can be both a useful tool of feedback and relief valve. They just want to control it so it doesn't threaten their legitimacy.

Protest is allowed so long as it is not aimed at the Party. You are angry? Protest the Japanese. Protest the Americans. You can even protest local government, because it's corrupt or incompetent. But not the Party.



Write, write, write CM. *g*

wolfguard I was watching
cpsan2 earlier tonight and they had
a panel discussion on Technology
and Innovation. One of the things
talked about was Chinas' censorship
of social media. One of the
panelists mentioned they were able
pull what was censored to see if
there was any pattern. At first
they were puzzled as it seems that
criticism of the government/people
weren't necessarily censored.

Then someone mentioned a difference
between criticisms and protest.
When they realized that, it was
more clear that the government was
far more concerned about shutting
down attempts to organize protests
than excoriating a particular
person or government entity.

"Huh..that's a pretty nice ability
to have. But getting back to Dana,
the last we had heard of her was
yesterday. She usually kept to
herself, I think she didn't really
like the idea of a demon essence in
her, it made her feel like she
deserved what she got as a child"

"Yeah, even now I'm feeling the
self-loathing, although it doesn't
feel like she was suicidal or
anything, just a powerful destire
to get what was inside her out.
Sometimes talking on
personalities/abilities of others
isn't all that great" Liv said.
"I don't really know what killed
her though, but I think I have an
idea of where she might have been.
I get some whiff of trees, so think
she might have been in a park or
something. "

"Well, sometimes we take turns
patrolling, to catch vampires or
the average thief. There is a park
that isn't far from where we bunk
at. Maybe we can visit it during
your off hours? said Buffy.

Whoa...where did that come from" Liv said to herself, shocked. She closed her fist and suddenly punched the wall.

When she pulled her hand out, she was surprised that there werent' any cuts or scrapes. She should have broken her hand, but didn't.
Liv wondered what other kinds of abilities Dana had, besides apparent super strength. She was somewhat tempted to go to the top of the building and see if she could leap down, but decided that wouldn't be very smart.

Liv sat down at her desk and sipped the latte Buffy gave her. She couldn't really taste it, but at the liquid was hot and the texture smooth and that was enough to calm her for now.

"Head and Heart. Keep cutting until you see dust". Liv murmured. "Do you know what that means" She curled up a a ball and wrapped her arms around her knees.

"I"ll tell my story and you can tell me how you're Dana. Hi, I'm Buffy Summers and I am a Vampire Slayer."

"Really? I never hear of a slayer before and didn't think vampires existed, but that would explain some folks I run into. Oh, sorry for the interruption" Live said rocking a little.

"There aren't a lot of us for sure, but we've always been around. Way back in Africa some old men decided to fight real evil but chaining a girl to a rock and imbuing her with the soul of a demon. This made girls super strong, but also gave them short lives. This super stuff was passed down from girl to girl, when one girl dies, another is called. We were managed by a Watcher's Council, who still tugged on a metaphorical chain until pretty much now.

"Huh...slayers. Sounds pretty cool, but I totally get not wanting to be under any guys thumb."

"That's what Dana was, a potential who became a slayer" Buffy said curiously.

"Hi, I'm Liv and I'm a Zombie." Liv said

"Zombie? Oh wow! I've never seen one as pretty as you!" Buffy said.

"Ah, thanks! I usually don't get those kinds of compliments! Anyways one, night I got attacked at a party and woke up as a zombie. It was a real life changer, so to speak. I don't really eat food, but I have to eat brains to keep myself normal. Working is a morgue is a pretty neat solution. I learned I can help solve their deaths because I can take on their memories and personalities. I think since I got some brain fluid from Dana, that might have been enough."

wolfguard My apologies for
the delayed answer.

God's sister Amara, aka the
Darkness.


Apparently God and the Darkness
existed in the beginning and God
sacrificed the DArkness to create
Earth and then transformed the
DArkness into a physical Mark that
was put into Lucifer for
safekeeping. The Mark corrupted
Lucifer, leading to his fall and
the transfer of the Mark to Cain
and then to Dean.

A witch was able to remove the
Mark, but doing so unleashed the
Darkness, who now seeks God's death
and the world's destruction.

For those, like Bernie Sanders, who think Socialism is so great, check out Venezuela. It's a shame so many young voters know so little history. Socialism has never worked, but it HAS often been used to grab power (and guns) on the way to a full-blown Communist dictatorship.


Okay, I saw "Captain America - Civil War" today 12:30 p.m. in IMAX 3-D for $12.79. It was VERY well done and only some of the in-house fighting scenes got a tad tiresome and WERE maybe inexplicable in terms of the intelligence of the combatants who should have known they were acting counter-intuitively. I must admit, though, I was stunned at one point during the movie as the actor Daniel Bruhl (who I remember was wonderful playing Nicki Lauda in the movie "Rush.") who played the villain, looked so startlingly so much like my deceased brother Daniel that I couldn't take my eyes off of him the rest of the movie. He looked as my brother looked when we were growing up. Of course the other guy who looked like my brother when he was older was Sam Elliott. My brother Dan was, needless to say, a nice-looking guy.


I watched the DVD's of "True Detective, Season Two" (which was COMPLETELY different [cast, storyline, etc.] than Season One,) and it, again, was extremely well-conceived and cast and acted. There WERE lots of well-known actors doing cameos but it was not a distraction. It seems to me actor James Frain has been everywhere playing a villain. He's got to be one of the busiest TV actors working today; recently he played the mayor-elect of Gotham.

werewolf123,

Give me more detail on the mystery genre.


Agent Cooper,

Here's how the arc goes ...


Bad Girls

During an ambush, Faith accidentally kills the Mayor's assistant. Buffy goes to Faith saying, ~ you killed a man and we need to go to Giles, etc. Faith responds with, ~ No, you don't get it. I don't care.1 What Buffy didn't see was Faith frantically washing her hands of blood.


Consequences

Buffy continues to try convincing Faith to go to Giles. Faith won't do it. Wesley overhears the scoobies talking about it and contacts the Watchers Council. Meanwhile, Angel captures Faith and tries to hard talk her into doing the right thing. The Watcher Council operators raid the Mansion, putting Angel down and capturing Faith. Faith escapes them. The scoobies search for Faith. Buffy finds Faith at the dock where she's waiting on a slow boat for China. They argue. Suddenly a cargo box falls above them. Buffy pushes Faith out of the way and in doing so takes the hit. Trick begins beating Buffy down - one of the most realistic 'fights' in BtVS. Faith fights two or three other vampires, dusting them all. Just as Trick is about to bite and kill Buffy - he poofs - and through the dust stands Faith with a stake.

Second to the last scene has Buffy recounting fight to Giles and expressing hope Faith can find redemption. Last scene shows Faith offering her services to the Mayor.


Doppelgangland

Faith learns Willow is trying to hack the Mayor's office and informs him. He orders Willow be killed, but tells Faith he wouldn't ask her to kill one of her former friends - yet. Instead a couple vamp minions go after Willow and of course run into Evil Willow. That's all of Faith's involvement in the episode, since the episode is about Willow.


Enemies

Faith and the Mayor try to turn Angel into Angelus. They appear to succeed and then capture Buffy threatening to torture her. In the climax we learn Buffy and Angel were playing Faith to out her and learn what the Mayor was up to.


Overall, the arc is not about a murder investigation. There's no doubt who killed the Mayor's assistant. The story follows Faith's decisions, actions, and consequences and how these affect both Buffy and her.


1 There is still the unanswered question - what was the Mayor's assistant doing in the alleyway that night? I think his name was ~~Finch.



ETA Oops! Evil Willow and Evil Xander killed Cordelia in The Wish. There was no murder investigation - Cordelia just died. The story was about being careful what you wished and the dangers of being alone in the world.

Wolfguard: Well, let's see. In "Dopplegangland" Cordelia IS killed by Evil Willow. In another time line. And everybody sort of knows who did it. So I guess that one doesn't really count.

I believe "Enemies" is the ep in which Faith murders the Mayor's assistant, yes? That murder is covered up by both Buffy and Faith for several eps and it becomes a major plot point for many eps afterwards. So I think I can claim this one.

Deadguy Question: I never paid much attention to which writers worked on Buffy eps.

Actually, I've never really thought about it with any show I've followed, although I probably should.

The only arena in which I've ever paid attention to the writer is with RPG books and mods, and even then not always. But in that realm some writers I like more than others and some I can tell what to expect in terms of the game-play and "flavor."

I believe Buffy was the only show
where I paid attention to who wrote
the episode. I don't believe I've
done that for any other show. I
think it was perhaps because the
writers engaged the community more,
so we were more aware of who wrote
what.

Christopher Marlowe,

You're beginning to walk in the verse.

Buffy's answer to Liv's question, ~ What was Dana like?~ ... can you break it
up, perhaps interspersing lines with Liv lines or reactions? For instance ...

LIV
What was Wesley like?

BUFFY
He changed.

LIV
Into a demon?

BUFFY
(into a rogue demon hunter j/k)
No, he filled out.

LIV
He became fat?

BUFFY
No - competent. And wise.

LIV
So when you first knew him, he was stupid?

BUFFY
Yeah. Stupid. And full of himself.

LIV
Thus the fat.




"Huh..I wonder where I got that from"?

Buffy and Liv walked down a tree lined street, they could see the light of the coffee shop down at the end of the block. The breeze was gentle and cool. Buffy was just thinking maybe she should just stay here permanently when a distant howl of a dog caught her ear.

Liv suddenly stumbled, reeling a bit from the series of image that hit her as soon as she heard the dog.

"Whoa, be careful...what's wrong?" Buffy said grabbing the arm of a suddenly collapsing Liv. Live crouched to the ground and gently rocked.

Buffy crouched down in front of Liv and looked at her face and saw something different. Liv's an odd look in her eye.

"Like I did mushrooms, and got ate by a bear". Liv said with a puzzled look on her face.
"Huh..I wonder where I got that from"?

Liv stood up and brushed her knees. She took a tentative step forward.

"What are you feeling?

"A little wonky " Liv twitched involuntarily and tried to come to grips with what she was feeling. It was like all her senses were overloaded. "What was Dana like"?


"Dana? She's a little hard to describe. When we first met her, she wasn't exactly in the strongest frame of mind. She had been institutionalized since a she was a girl as a result of the murder of her family where she was the only survivor. It look a long time, but we were able to wean her off drugs and she was able to handle...stuff a little better. She got overwhelmed easily though, and still acted a bit like a young girl sometimes"

"Yeah..right now it's like all my senses are overloaded, sounds are too loud, it's smelly out here and the lights are way too bright'" I just want to get somewhere dark and quiet." Liv said.

I'll get the coffee a you can go back to the morgue, it will definitely be quiet there and you can change up the lights however you want.

"Good Idea" Liv said and she saw Buffy go the rest of the way for coffee. She returned to the morgue and went to the bathroom there.

Liv looked into the mirror and was repulsed by what Dana saw. A zombie. A demon. She looked for a razor ... only safety ones. She needed to cut. On herself. On the demon inside her.

"Whoa...where did that come from" Liv said to herself, shocked.

Christopher Marlowe,

Just googled 'Trump Palin". Several results with respect to your post. The AJC.com
wrote she was on a shortlist that included Kasich, Rubio, Cruz, and Christie. I do
not see Rubio or Cruz accepting such an offer. Earlier today heard Kasich ask
(rhetorically?) how he would explain to his wife and daughters accepting the VP
offer. Since Christie early on endorsed Trump, it's possible he would accept VP.

I recall Trump or his campaign floating three Republican governors as VP, two women,
but they all said no thank you.

Agent Cooper,


Beginning this exploration by defining "murder investigation". The classic
British detective mystery starts with a murder and the protagonist's task is
determine whodunit - and why, and perhaps bring the murderer to justice.

I suspect in almost all such stories the body is discovered at the very
beginning of the story. A classic television example is Castle. Of
course, Castle uses the murder investigation to develop the characters
and their relationships as much as it is about discovering whodunit. This is not
true of all murder mysteries ... this line of thought, with respect to BtVS, can
wait till later. For now, if we looked at the sample episodes which ones will
begin with a murder leading to an investigation of whodunit?

Since I gathered the sample before writing the above, it's possible I defined
the genre in light of what I remember of the episodes. I don't think that I did,
but just in case I will first look at two additional episodes. I "chose" them by
dividing 144 episodes in half to get the episode in the middle of the series
run. since there are an even number of episodes there's no exact middle episode,
but rather one episode on each side of the middle. And these episodes are ...

Doppelgangland (72nd episode)

Enemies (73rd episode)

(If my math is correct)

Agent Cooper,

I suspect you are right on later episodes, since many are parts of an arc. OTOH,
one can look and see if the arc is centered on a murder. Anyway, here are the
chosen episodes ...

Puppet Show
Teacher's Pet
When She Was Bad
Becoming 2
Homecoming
Earshot
In the Harsh Light of Day
The Yoko Factor
Afterlife
Villains
End of Days
Beneath You

Agent Cooper,

I want to explore your statement that most BtVS episodes are centered around a
murder investigation. Needed to take a sample of episodes and wanted to make
some gesture towards a random sample. So ...

One of my computers was showing 9:15 which I converted into episodes:

1.9
2.1
3.5

Your clock showed 3:03

4.3
5.0
6.3

I'll treat the zero as a 10 giving episode 10 of season 5.


Needed a 7th season episode so asked for choice between 1-22.

7.21 (End of Days)


That's a sample of 7 from a population of 144. To increase the sample size using
the same numbers we can count backwards. For instance 2.1 (counting forwards is
When She Was Bad), counting backwards is Becoming 2.


Now I've got to pull the episodes.

If you're crossing Buffy over to Liv's verse, then you probably should use some of the iZombie characters. For that matter, an iZombie episode is built around a murder investigation.

One of Hillary's favorite interests (see 2nd pic down) cc: Agent Cooper, DaddyCatALSO


lostinamerica, Agent Cooper: Each Season of "Game of Thrones" only contains around 10 episodes, so you CAN watch a season on a weekend. BTW, in one of the DVD Features it mentions that "Game Of Thrones" films 280+ days of the year and in excess of 10 countries. It has been renewed, already, through Season Eight. Also, BTW Seasons One and Two are particularly popular as Emilia Clarke (Daenerys - the blonde with the dragons) walks around mostly naked in plenty of scenes. After Season Two, though, there's not so much of her disrobed, although others have occasional partially nude scenes.

Lostinamerica,

Christopher Marlowe's summary takes you through first season. Dani is the Mother of Dragons. The following youtube clip is (mostly) from second season. It's titled ~Dani
s best moments~ (from that season).

The first scene tells you why dragons are important. The second scene, ~2:08-8:48 will tell you much about Dani's character.
