    Im not sure they should have started with Spike and Drusilla. Maybe just give them a starter big bad and save them for later?

    Or have the Whirlwind and The Master face Angel and focus on someone else?

    Honestly, I would've preferred it if they brought in his mother instead. Nicki never really did anything for me on the show. His mom is the one I was interested in learning more about, especially her history with Spike.
    His current approval rating is 34%, meaning 34% of Americans are still morons.

    You mean Robin, Nicki is his mom who was slayer and Spike killed her.

    I guess you could always make Nicki Buffy's immediate predecessor. Or even have her become a Vampire - that might have been a cool twist (save it for Kendra).

    Honestly, I never felt like I need to know more about Nicki so I don't prefer her to Robin. Granted I'm not sold on young Robin yet as he's just there.

    Honestly, I might have preferred Gunn but it feels weird to pair him with Buffy.

    Robin! Right! My bad.

    IDK, what bothered my about Robin the most is that other than the fact that he was a Slayer's son, there really wasn't much else to him than that. He needed a little more texture. And I know we're only a few issues in, but it doesn't really seem as if he has any more here.

    I agree. Gunn would've been a good choice. He has texture up the wazoo. And it would've been easy enough to move him onto Angel later if that's what they decided to do.

    Robin debuted in season 7 which was already packed with characters. So he got defined as a Spike-foil and the show ended before he could find a new niche. I'm curious how he would have fared in the proposed Faith spinoff. It might have helped him similar to how Wesley was treated after he joined Angel.

    Right now they are playing the long game with Robin so maybe he'll pick up soon?

    Maybe they should have swapped Gunn for Robin?
