Haha, yeah I was about time, huh? No "Bog of Eternal Stench" for me.
Considering how quickly some of you carved him, I guess he was highly anticipated!
Euri - yeah, I almost felt bad categorizing him as a "monster." Of course, he was the villain. He did some pretty cruel things, especially the emotional abuse of poor ol' Hogwart... I mean Hoggle. But ultimately you feel bad for Jareth. Sure, he's gotten a bit full of himself and abuses his power, but ultimately I think he's just lonely. All he wants is some more babies to add to his collection of goblins. And to hook up with a 15 year old girl. Nothing wrong with this picture.
Instead he has it yanked away from him, and he's left to watch longingly (as a peeping-tom owl) while everyone else is partying. Poor goblin king.
