In the last couple of seasons, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has had bigger problems than blood-suckers and demons. (Humorless scripts? Scary!) But in last night's series finale, creator Joss Whedon, who wrote and directed, completely redeemed himself. By the end of the hour, Willow's witchcraft had turned the potentials into Slayers; Buffy had told Spike that she loved him and hinted that she still hoped to grow old with Angel; Spike, Anya, Amanda and preacherman Caleb had bought the farm (so, that's why Whedon lied to me about Spike going to Angel ); and, best of all, the Scoobies had begun to resemble the gang with whom we fell in love. Oh, and do we really need to mention that they saved the world? Thought not. For Matt Roush's take on the episode, click here.
