Yes. I have never understood the whole "all you have to do is remove a vampire's heart and it makes her/him invincible" plot. That's how you KILL a vampire. Does this mean that if Buffy somehow pulled out a vampire's heart it would suddenly become invincible? I feel like it was just a really, really heavy-handed metaphor for James' heart being "ripped out of him" after his ~1 tru luv~ died.

So, Buffy and Riley are having sex for pretty much days and have all the force of a sexually deprived poltergeist behind them, and somehow they still manage to have the most boring sex in the world. Oh, look, Riley's on top, now they're kind of on their sides. Yawn. It's called creativity people, look it up.

Lol. Winds. Milton loved him some winds. There is a surprising amount of focus on "winds" in Paradise Lost. Initially in Paradise, Adam and Eve had no "ill-winds," then after their fall, they get indigestion and produce some "winds". But, you know, Milton was crazy about a good diet; he thought that if you just ate temperately, you could avoid all manner of sins, especially lustful ones. Good times.
Really? Q and Picard? I can't really see that being much of a battle... unless it's a battle of wits! Is it a chess battle? Does Worf play a round? Does Ambassador Troi walk in an say "I sense that someone is concentrating," and then we all have a good laugh, because everyone knows she's just a pretend telepath/emotion-reader? You're right, this is a good series.
