Faith The Series: Season 1

StoryReviewsStatisticsRelated StoriesTracking
Review of chapter "Season 1 Episode 1" from CrimsonE
Review:
This is a very solid adaptation, but some of the lines were a bit too faithful to the series. I don't think Faith would be as squeamish as Buffy about the brain in the Puppet Show. And Faith probably wouldn't use the line that she was still pretty, unlike the Master--now I could buy she would say she's still hot, but not "pretty."

However, I would like to have seen this series' take on Nightmares and Out of Mind Out of Sight. However, it is quite interesting that the group is bigger than the original series, and that Darla has survived. It should make for an interesting second and third seasons, which I will be reading shortly.
Comments from author:
Your point about the dialogue is well-taken. However I was more focussing on the Faith-Giles
relationship and what I thought as of Buffy's lack of appreciation of having friends, and
having Faith really go for them.

Out of Mind Out of Sight was impossible because Cordy in this adaptation learns from her
mistakes quicker (being Faith's best friend), and Nightmares was too similar to the fourth
season Halloween ep (which I will be doing).

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Season 1 Episode 11" from darkcarnage
Review:
That's the way canon should have done it. Xander should have gotten Buffy and not have him a get a lap dance to make a corpse jealous.
Comments from author:
I'm actually an Angel fan, but Buffy was ugh, LA Angel was too good for her... And what was Giles thinking, as a Watcher he should have pointed out a) vampires being unable to go out during the day b) their immortality c) their infertility, and that's just the problems with the ensoulled ones!

Anyway, thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Season 1 Episode 9" from (Recent Donor)tchizek
Review:
Nicely done Malcolm episode. Well played with Jonathan subing for Xander for some of the lines in the canon.

Great chapter!
Comments from author:
I've shifted things around a lot in this story, in the original, the focus was Slayer\Vampire and Willow. In this story it's Slayer\Watcher\Xander\Cordy, and Willow being a secondary character for me is with Jonathan rather than Xander.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Season 1 Episode 8" from (Recent Donor)tchizek
Review:
Good handling of the Hyena possession episode.
Interesting how it went with Xander, Jesse and Andrew as the Pack, I was almost expecting you to let them control it...but it works better this way.
Not giving the three of them too much power.
Good handling of the Faith/Xander attempted rape scene and aftermath.

Great chapter.

Edit: Darn that's what I get for not double checking I thought Jonathan and wrote Andrew - oh well sorry [grin].
Comments from author:
"Interesting how it went with Xander, Jesse and Andrew as the Pack,"

Or even Jonathan! :D

"Good handling of the Faith/Xander attempted rape scene and aftermath. "

I didn't like how it was just forgotten next ep, but then that was often the show's fault. Often things (Jesse's death for example), were forgotten by the ep's end.

Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the review.

Nice, I love the look into Faiths thoughts.
I loved Giles going Ripper on Snyder.
I loved Faith's effort in picking the right presents.
I loved Faith's protectiveness of the kids.

Great chapter!

Yeah, poor Faith, she never had a childhood.

Thanks for the review.

Review:
Great handling of the Ms French episode. Nicely done.
Comments from author:
The major thing coming of the story will be Xander's reaction to
Faith's insult.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Season 1 Episode 4" from (Recent Donor)tchizek
Review:
mmm, interesting. Different take on how Flutie dies, well done.
Nice interaction between Faith and Darla, well handled.
Good way of having Faith get the Scoobies training as well.
I was worried there for a paragraph that you were going to kill Xander!

Great chapter!
Comments from author:
I liked to introduce the Mayor early and I had plans for the Pack episode that
didn't involve Flutie dying at their hands, so it was the perfect way to introduce them.

It never made any sense to me that the Scoobies didn't train. But then it never
made any sense that Jonathan and Amy at least weren't Scoobies given Jonathan's
status as a geek and Amy's status as a witch and potential threat if not trained properly.

Thanks.

Review of chapter "Season 1 Episode 3" from darkcarnage
Review:
Great chapter. I always like the way you handle the Giles and Faith relationship where he's trying to juggle being a father and her watcher.

BTW you have this listed as season 3 episode 3 instead of season 1.
Comments from author:
Oh thanks, I'll change it.

Review:
Very, very good. Well handled Amy/Catherine episode.
I like how Faith handled being pushed into trying out for cheer-leading.
I really like her reaction to Xander and Xander's reaction to her, well handled.
Very good handling of her realizing the Giles really cares for her there at the end, well done.

Thanks for a great chapter!
Comments from author:
Yeah, the final scene was my favourite to write in the chapter.

Review of chapter "Season 1 Episode 2" from (Recent Donor)CaptainBoulanger
Review:
Nice use of the "sunlight" line. I think in the original episode there was a light source behind the broken painted-over glass, but it was just a floodlight.
Comments from author:
Floodlight I think, yeah.

Review:
Interesting... Faith helping the boys (possibly) get some...

(I meant helping them with tips on how to get Cordelia and possibly Willow)
Comments from author:
Giles is probably too strict for that.
