Specific complaints include the brutal ending of the relationship between Willow and Tara, the decreasing attention given to Xander as a central character, the use of a trio of nerds as villains, Buffy's increasingly self-centered sexual relationship with Spike, and the use of magic as a metaphor for drug use.

In addition, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Buffy, disliked the way her character was treated in the sixth season. Concerning Buffy's sexual affair with Spike, Gellar said, "I had trouble with the one where Buffy had sex with Spike on the balcony while watching their friends. I really thought that was out of character. And I didn't like what it stood for. That was the moment that I had the most problems with." Gellar was also disappointed with the show's sixth season in general, especially Buffy's depression and sexual obsession with Spike. "It wasn't who Buffy was, or why people loved her," Gellar observed. "You don't want to see that dark heroine; you don't want to see her punishing herself. You want to see her killing vampires and making quips. It didn't feel like the character that I loved" [1]. Gellar also thinks that the season seven finale was too short and that it shortchanged some of the series' other stars' screen time. “I believe the finale of Buffy should have been two hours," she says. "I think a lot of the characters, specifically Xander, didn’t get enough screen time” [2]. Sarah Michelle Gellar (born April 14, 1977) is an American actress perhaps best known for having played the title role of Buffy Anne Summers in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ...


Still, while many fans--and Gellar herself--have reservations about Buffy's last two seasons, these are sometimes ascribed to other causes than Noxon's growing responsibilities. Some assign no particular blame to the executive producer, while others lay the blame squarely at the feet of the show's creator, Joss Whedon, and view the "Noxon-bashing" as scapegoating. Whedon himself maintains that he retained full creative control over the show (and, in particular, over the show's story arc, stating at one point: "I killed Tara") and counters claims that stewardship of the show's "mission" was delegated to Noxon: Joss Whedon at the premiere of Serenity. ...

Marti. . . and I shaped this year very carefully, and while we made mistakes (as we do every year), we made our show. We explored what we wanted to, said what we meant. You don't have to like it, but don't think it comes from neglect. [3]

If my mom would fly, I would worry about all the bad things that could happen," Noxon remembers. "And I was so afraid of ghosts. We found some stuff in the attic that belonged to a woman named Bertha--old dresses, letters and stuff. I thought she lived in the house. So I was afraid of the natural and the supernatural" [7].
