The Tally Ho

Thursday, February 10, 2005

Perspective. Or lack thereof.

The NYTimes.com posted an article this morning about sweeps-month TV lesbian kisses. One of the sidebar photo captions references the relationship of Willow and Tara in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but Willow's kissage partner is the irritating Kennedy. The scene is not from the episode quoted ("The Body") but from a fluffy seventh season episode ("Storyteller"? I don't know.)

When I brought this up at home this morning, I got a surprising response. Now I want to take a poll.

1) Is this error crucial enough to call to the NYTimes' attention? You may include your support or disapproval of Kennedy's character in this answer.
2) What larger role does this error play in your opinion of the NYTimes? Bonus points if (like Elwood) you can include William Safire in your response.
