  • Buffy and the Scoobies are nothing...it's Jonathon that is the Superhero.

    A alternate universe that is funny in idea, but not fun to watch. Maybe it's the fact that once again, Adam is being pushed to the side or maybe I just don't find the Jonathon character that interesting in any but small bits, but I hate this episode. Sure, it's mildly amusing to think of a universe dominated by the ultimate Betty-Sue fanfic character. As a matter of actually reading (or watching in this case) such a story though... it's no fun at all.

    I also thought the counter-demon that appeared in response to Jonathon's alteration of reality was pretty lame. I would have liked to see Jonathon actually become a Scooby during the series run, but not in this way.
