Really having a hard time keeping all these threads together, even when I read the trades back-to-back. The Faith and Giles story was probably my favorite of the group, although it is a little exhausting when people bring up Jenny Calendar, at this point, Giles has had a lot of nicks in his heart and that's just one of many. I guess maybe it's significant later, I don't know.

I am really interested in the public's attitude towards the slayer problem, but I'm afraid that by giving us these little stories, this whole Harmony reality show thing, these things that feel like Monsters of the Week instead of nicely growing arcs -- we're missing developments, somehow. I can't tell who the enemy is and I can't tell what anyone thinks of it.

The scripts are good, the art is eh, and I'm just waiting for a uniting thread, I guess.
