Another possible connection--When the Master was "stuck" he was confined to the area inside of the Hellmouth. Since Spike could move around LA, but not leave the city limits, could that imply that all of LA is a Hellmouth? Hmmm....
In the sense that all Sunnydale was a Hellmouth maybe- when the Hellmouth was destroyed the crater went precisely up to the city limits, neat enough the welcome to Sunnydale sign nearly survived. But the Hellmouth was also in particular that spot under the school, the way the conduit is in particular in W&H

Hey Nan- Do you think any attention is paid to the messages posted on the network sites? I ask because my husband and I had a minor obsession with "Paradise Hotel." We read the Fox site and noticed that the show was strongly influenced by what was said there. Of course, that was reality TV- a horse of a different color. (also, Paradise had no plot or point- so the producers probably had a lot of free time.)
I doubt I'd ever give my info to WB (I fear them,) but I would if it meant I could make a difference in say, whether or not the show gets cancelled.
TLV, for go/no go decisions, networks have ratings, which are a whole lot more accurate about the total viewership of a show in terms of numbers than anything individual fans may say. I think the fans' greatest impact is in cases like Farscape, when the *producers* of the show were not ready to give it up (this also applies to *Firefly*) and fans' encouragement and/or outrage at the cancellation would reinforce their own (the producers') wish to continue with it in some form or other, find another network, and so forth. If the numbers aren't there, fans loving a show can sometimes briefly extend a series run; but usually viewer numbers drop catastrophically in the extended eps (happened with Babylon 5 and that space teenagers show with the hot sauce, I'm not recalling its name); then the series is *really* dead dead.
None of these are absolutes, but these have been my observations over the past 20 years or so, watching fan campaigns for this or that in terms of a series.
I'm a bit of a newbie, but I was wondering how Spike knew there was Mountain Dew in the Cup?
I must must have missed something in the episode, or in previous one's where Spike becomes a ghost (ie when did this happen?)
PS: I'm sorry if this has been brought up before, I did search through all 26 pages of this thread and did not find the word "dew" if relation to this question. BTW great review Nan.
I am stil trawling through the 26 pages, but I am evil and skipped to the end for a peak at the ending (so to speak).
Spike was a ghost from the start of season 5 of AtS ("Angel"). He died at the end of season 7 of BtVS ("Buffy"). Apparantly, the vampire who likes flowering onions and beer has also tried Mountain Dew. However, for the non-Mountain Dew drinkers of the world, it would have been written without capitals with connotations of pure, fresh untainted water. Is that what you were thinking?
By the way, welcome to the S'Cubie board. Are you another international fan? (Please, please say yes. Make my day and say that you live in Australia, or at least NZ.)
