I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
I didn't read all of last season, I think, but I figured since I had this, I'd give it a go. Or maybe I just don't remember all of season nine? Either way, this filled in what I needed to know, and I never felt completely thrown for a loop.
I enjoyed the humor and warmth of Buffy's extended family and I love seeing Spike grow as a character.
