Update on Home



current book: "Blood and Chocolate" by Annette Curtis Klause

I'm getting very close to being done with my "Home" analysis. No really, I am. I've been hyper-linking the parts that I have finished, and I really only have a couple more paragraphs left to write, and to choose and add some fan quotations.

Then there's the cross-referencing bits.

I just added a quote from from Arethusa that calls Connor's actions after Jasmine's defeat "nihilistic". I may not like that conclusion, but I can see that that is where the writers took him. (After so many promises at the end of season 3 that season 4 would explore the Angel-Connor dynamic much the way that BtVS explored Buffy-Dawn. But never mind. My issues).

So while I may not like the implications of that quotation, adding it, and seeing its applicability, makes me remember why I love doing my website. Mutant Enemy are masters at weaving philosophy into pop culture.

So that's my morning, you know, in addition to the work thing.

If you care to comment on this entry, I wouldn't mind some thoughts on the question: "Did the Angel Investigations gang do the right thing accepting Wolfram and Hart's offer?" Because it seems to me that after four years of hating everything Wolfram and Hart stands for and refusing to go along with their schemes or stoop to their methods, what they did was very...

dare I say the over-used words?

...out of character.

Like the writers desperately trying to come up with a fresh angle at the expense of character continuity.

Oh, and avoid spoilers if at all possible. For I am the pure. ; )
