...wow, I'd forgotten how strongly the Buffy episode where her mom dies ('The Body', for those following along at home) is written.
Joss, why don't you write this good, anymore?

*nod* Incredibly powerful. So much so that all my loved ones forbade me to watch it alone... and Hell, yeah, did it resonate when I finally did.
Maybe Joss will come back from the (wrong) dark side... I live in hope.

Maybe because people fawn over everything he does these days so why work so hard?
I'm far from his biggest fan, but I definitely noticed stronger writing in those first few seasons of "Buffy" than anything else he's done since.

I have mixed feelings about the actual writing strength of 'the Body'.

I can't watch that episode. It aired only about a year after my mom died and it wrecked me.
However, I think a great deal of that was the lack of incidental music and how stark everything was, that episode was a masterpiece.
