Response to Ranking The "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" Vampires:
Actually, the Anointed One DID do something unusual—aside from making us wonder how they found the Worst. Child thesp. Ever. to play him. Joss broke a traditional TV taboo with this character—who was a child-LIKE victim of a gruesome dusting, complete with kiddie scream. In the past, that ALONE would’ve doomed Spike to a shortened stay on the series…..just another indicator that Joss was not averse to going for the, heh heh, jugular.
