Reactions/Reviews

  • "My favourite AtS vid is lithiumdoll's All These Things I've Done. It takes in the show's entire canon, and is a really lovely appreciation of the whole series" ~ feedback at "Buffycation: the final chapter" dated March 2010.
  • "I was reminded some months back of this recap vid of Angel that did so well at showing the progression and movement of the characters through the messiness that was many of their arcs." ~ feedback at the buffyversetop5 LJ community.
  • "This came out so wonderfully well! I am a big fan of universe-summarizing vids, and this ties it all up so beautifully. You seemed to be paying more attention to lyrics than you typically do, which I think is ideal for the vid; I particularly liked all the character deaths on "you're gonna bring yourself down", and how "you gotta help me out" showed what Angel gets from his created family. Oh, and of course, Beige Angel on "I've got soul but I'm not a soldier." Brilliant! The vid escalates in a very heart-pounding way with all the action sequences. I really got into it. There may have been chair-dancing involved. (: But you never lost the vid's center, its heart, all those people, all those relationships, all the love and the pain and the hard, hard work." ~ feedback at the vid announcement.
  • "I really loved this. The vid flowed so smoothly, connecting Angel throughout every season of the show, and oh it made my heart ache. I loved the way you used the music, too--that first sequence of fast cuts of Cordy and her visions to the 'No No's and quick beats just took my breath away. And then the way the clips got longer during the quiet bridge, and then sped up and intensified as the music got louder and we got into all the ensemble pain of season five. It all flowed so smoothly, and made me want to give Angel lots and lots of hugs. Brilliant." ~ feedback at the vid announcement.
