30 Days of Buffy Day 7: Least Favorite Male Character

Riley.  Riley.  And did I mention Riley?  Because I’m pretty sure it’s Riley.

Why so hesitant, you ask.

Well, because I just don’t like Riley.  He was supposed to be the normal guy for Buffy, but he turned out to be Mr. Initiative.  And when he finally realized Buffy had commitment issues, he tried giving her an ultimatum.  But that was AFTER he got all friendly with a couple of vamps letting them suck his blood for money.

He wasn’t all that accepting when Joyce was sick.  Sure, he said he wanted to be there for Buffy, and he freaked when she wouldn’t let him in.  It’s like he didn’t understand her Slayerhood.

And then he came back married and throwing it in Buffy’s face… sort of.

Also, he was dry.

  1. I didn’t love Riley either. I understand why he was important for Buffy’s life, but I didn’t like that Joss kept trying to push him into Buffy’s world. He should’ve been a guy who didn’t know anything, oblivious to Buffy and her supernatural world. She should have ignored him mostly, except for what she needed: sex, cuddles, just someone there. Instead, he was a part of the Initiative and could easily keep up with the Slayer. BORING! We already had that with Angel.

  2. I liked Riley a lot. In fact, I liked him a hell of a lot more than Angel.

    That’s your idea of how Riley should have been? How fucking boring.
