    I voted Willow/Kennedy as the worst couple.


    A lot of the couple weirdness can be directly blamed on Angel getting a series of his own. Willow/Xander was just a quick easy way to breakup Cordy/Xander & have her go to LA. Buffy/Spike was nothing more then a replacement for Buffy/Angel, right down to the part where Spike gets his soul.


    The only couples I enjoyed on the series were Anya/Xander, Cordy/Xander & Willow/Tara all the others sucked to some degree IMO.

    Just my two cents on the Spuffy thing:



    Whether or not you guys believe it to be true, Joss Whedon has stated that Buffy truly meant it when she said it. It could have been in an interview, but I'm fairly certain it was in the Chosen episode commentary.



    If Joss Whedon says it's true...


    Good to know this. I'm going to have to break out the DVD commentary and hear for myself. I always thought she meant what she said!

    I chose Willow and Kennedy. Kennedy was never that interesting for me. Willow worked better with Tara or Oz. They were both great matches for her. My second worst would probably be...hmm to be honest I don't know. I liked watching Xander and Cordy also, Xander and Anya weren't bad either. I am not saying either one was my favorite BtVS couple because they aren't. My favorite couple is Buffy/Angel. I think they were the best couple. The most chemistry and granted definitely not their time to be together yet during the series but eventually. Buffy/Spike were what they were. I wasn't overly fond of Spike being in love with her with a chip in his head he became pathetic. He got better when he got a soul. I don't think they are ever meant to be even if she does love him. As for Buffy and Riley I didn't hate their relationship but I accepted it for what it was. He was also never the one for her. It was nice she had someone normal for awhile.


    Maybe the second worse couple for me were Xander and Anya. But that might be mostly because of Xander. He was never my favorite character on the show and in fact was rather annoying and irritating at times. However, he had his moments.

    I could never decide if she actually meant it or if she just said it cause he was gonna die.

    i think she meant it when she said it. however i'm not sure she was in love with him a week before that or even a day before that. i think she fell in love with him in the cave or just prior to. i think it was a recent thing anyway.
    but i can't see buffy telling him if it wasn't true, she's all about truth and morals and things.

    Yeah that's the side I'm more on, but it's a little ambiguous.

    Worst BtVS couple. Interesting. I've narrowed it down to two from the poll.


    We'll start off with Buffy&Riley. Now i'm not sure i can be completely objective toward them considering i had this odd, narcoleptic ability to fall asleep during every scene they had together. Honestly, i had no idea they were in a realtionship until someone told me. I'm sure they were epic though.Therefore, i'm gonna pass on them.


    That's right guys, that means the winner is Willow&Kennedy. I'm sorry to dissappoint the three fans they have, but i can't help myself. I know they were destined and incredibly important to the show. In fact, i can't i can't think of a couple that had a greater impact on the development of the series or a lasting effect on the fans bigger than Willow&Kennedy, but for some reason i just never felt it. I know i'm so weird when it comes to picking couples from shows, and once again i'm sorry to insult the Kenlow fans, or whatever the hell their ship name is.


    Everyone needs a ship name, and there always just so creative.

    I think Willow and Kennedy were so hated that they never even got a ship name.

    ha ha and i'm pretty sure kennedy willow ship is called;
    killow
    kill low
    killlllllow.
    kilo?
    either that or wenedy, which is kind of like wendy and wensday .the creepy girl from the adams family and the comic witch. she was in that movie casper meats wendy, she's played by a younger hilary duff(you know her, she used to be miley cyrus, before miley cyrus was miley cyrus).

    so which one is creepier? take your pick really.

    the worse part of that post is that i (i'll pretend i did this on purpose to maintain my english skillz rep) said the movie was not called "casper meets wendy", but rather "casper meats wendy", which is like the porn version or something... coincidently also starting hilary duff.



    ummmm also.... worst couple. am i the only person that did't think oz and willow reigned supreme? the perfect boyfriend just happens to show up and ... i don't know... be perpect? yawn much?(i understand i'll be alone on this one).

    Oz was the perfect boyfriend, but I didn't think he and Willow were the perfect couple.

    they had these full on emotional buffy angel like scenes and i just didn't buy it. yeah they're cute but seriously. they had this intense romance apparently, well the break up scenes imply, and i just don't feel like it wwas earnt. i cared about them, I did, but i just didn't carre enough. and don't think it just because they weren't the main couple or anything, i'm not like this with tillow or xanya. but then again they are cute. and short. and ranga. but very, very cute. =]

    I liked how they were both short, but yeah, I think Oz cared much more than Willow did for him.

    Spuffy. They were horrible together and made no sense. And both characters changed. I used to like Spike, but he got really annoying when he was with Buffy.
    I agree. I still really liked both characters, but they often annoyed me when together and I really hate the pairing. I picked 'Other' and meant Spuffy. Willow/Kennedy was awful too, though it's mostly that Kennedy's just a really arrogant and annoying, bratty, snobbish bitca.

    She didn't exactly argue with him when he called her out on it. I suppose they didn't have much time to do so, but the face expression was that of..."your right" not the classic eye brows lifed, forward lean "no no no! I do!" I believe she cared about him.. but I don't believe she loved him.
    I agree.

    I do agree with those who said she wasn't in love with him, but I do think she loved him (like she loves the rest of her friends and family.)
    I'd say that's the case if she did love him. If she meant it and she loves him I think it's in that way. Though I doubt she loves him as much as her closest friends and little sister. I don't think she was ever 'in love' with him.

    I don't like or really hate Riley, though he could often be very annoying and I liked it when he got his ass handed to him. Riley/Buffy was probably the healthiest relationship she had though. I think it was mostly good for her. Until the insecurities and misunderstandings leading to really bad decisions. I sometimes felt quite sorry for him, even if he was a t**t. Dawn said some pretty thoughtless things to him too. Fuelled the fire a lot so to speak. Pretty much telling him Buffy wasn't even remotely as emotionally invested in Riley as she'd been Angel, and that she was simply patronizing him when it came to patrolling etc.

    I didn't really like Willow and Kennedy together, but it was kind of time for willow to start dating again.
    I think it'd only been like 3/4 months or so. Definitely under a year. Considering how she reacted when Tara died, that seems like an awfully short amount of time for her to have moved on.

    Buffy and Riley, as I couldnt stand Riley even the name and the way Buffy shrieked it. Also Willow and Kennedy as there was no real chemistry
