Just a bit of a Buffy Rant [review time]

Lately I have been noticing a lot of blasphemy from Firefly lovers in my community. The Buffy hating. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is just something you have to see before you could possibly appreciate its quirks, and by seeing I don't mean five minutes of the awkward dialogue between Alyson Hannigan and Nicholas Brandon that can only be described as nerdy banter. As the creator of both Firefly and Buffy, and several other shows which I haven't watched yet, Joss Whedon has always been actively involved in much of the writing for the show. You can't just watch a few minutes of the banter and say "This is terrible dialogue" and turn it off.
