I went to my GoodReads account and looked at things I had rated one star in order to come up with suggestions. You already read Ayn Rand, so I would like to see you read a Dan Brown novel.

a) The Lost Symbol
b) Dan Brown
c) 509 pages (this is way too many pages, it only needed like 200)
d) Mystery? Historical thriller?
e) Oh my god your library probably has like a hundred copies

Basically I decided on The Lost Symbol because the writing is EVEN WORSE than The Da Vinci Code and it has a way less intriguing mystery as the central plot. There are about 200 chapters because they're all half a page long for some reason, the dialogue is ridiculous, and it's totally full of racefail. (Like, characters who are not white men are continually referred to as "the African-American man" or "the small Asian woman" over and over again so Dan Brown can be proud of his diverse cast of characters or some shit.)

Mark, I just love your complete and utter exasperation at all of this.

Cordelia's speech when she thinks Xander is the monster in the pool is one of my favorite things ever. "I'll do everything I can to make your quality of life better, whether that means little bath toys or whatever. " LITTLE BATH TOYS! Ha!

It's so UNSETTLING the way Angel stalks and harasses Buffy and her friends, and like you I am really glad that the show intentionally portrays it that way. I also love that when he approaches Joyce on the front lawn she is having NONE. OF. IT. He tries to be all charming and I-just-want-to-talk-to-her and Joyce basically tells him to fuck off. She is such a good mom.

Ugh, I remember when I watched this episode for the first time I felt like I'd been punched in the gut. My mom married her Ted, and it hasn't really gotten any easier to see her with him because he's still a gigantic asshole, but now I don't have to live with them anymore. But the very mannerisms were eerily familiar -- the way he would be charming and generous around Joy and then turn threatening once her back was turned. My now-stepfather once backed me into a corner when I was 16 and was yelling down into my face about how he wanted to smack the shit out of me, because I talked back to him. I wished he would, so I could call the cops. And my mom was downstairs, she heard everything. That was the worst part -- that she knew and that she chose to be with him anyways. That's why I felt so much for Buffy in this episode, because she obviously wanted her mom to be happy, but how do you let someone you love choose someone like that?

Actually, I saw this gif posted on Tumblr with the caption "WE DON'T HAVE THESE IN THE SHIRE" and it fucking killed me.

Mark, I am shocked that your review was not just this gif a hundred times:
