I think this is all writing, the clearly wrote the character a lot different. His focus seemed to be more about his past which made him super serious. It wasn't the aloof(or pretending to be aloof) Spike that the anime has. My biggest beef is the anime gave them a whole lot to work with and they could've expanded with that instead of creating something thats different.

>Vicious though, that dude was pretty much unwatchable. So
Terrible unwatchable and hammy. They also took the character and made him a joke which is opposite of what we see in the anime. I felt they could've taken the plotline with Vicious and ran with it, but with out him looking comically bad. I also felt the same way about Julia's character, I like what they did in the end but to make her seem so week most of the serious vs the anime it was hinted and shown that she was a strong character that didn't need Spike or Vicious. Just bad characterization

>Jet and Faye by contrast, were almost spot-on personality
