But then I got about two thirds of the way through her article, when I came across this unholy sentence:
"In short, this is Buffy or Charmed, only the X-rated grown- ups-only version - and much, much cleverer and funnier. "What!?!?!? Wash your mouth out with soap, woman!! I scream (on the inside)...
Not only is Buffy much funnier and cleverer than True Blood (so far at least), but there is NO. FECKIN'. WAY. that Charmed should even be mentioned in the same phrase as Buffy - except to represent polar opposites. Charmed doesn't do funny, except maybe unintentionally. And I haven't seen any clever there either.
And there's another thing. TV reviewers often talk about Buffy as though it was all about Buffy and Angel. Well it wasn't - the romance was only one part of the many subplots and themes of the show. These people must have only ever seen the first two seasons of it or something. And that's hardly credible.
