BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYERPosted: October 29, 2013
Not the movie, although it was funny, the Joss Whedon series that was ubercool and scary.
This series was all about the writing. It was quick, clever, droll, goofy and wicked cool.
Buffy had it all: bad vamps, good vamps, sexy vamps, tall dark and brooding vamps, Drusilla, Spike, zombies, spirits, demons, witches, Faith, warlocks, geeks, pop culture, gypsies, computer nerds, dysfunctional family units, ghosts, goblins, gym, ghouls, librarians, magic, love, The Master, death, sex, hope, The Bronze, friendship, Dracula, teenagers, The First Evil,Nathan Fillion (who first auditioned for the part of Angel in 1996), bullies, field trips, Watchers, The Council, high school, werewolves, lifestyle choices, hope, fear, horror, laughter…everything you could want in a show and of course, slayers.
Although Sarah Michelle Gellar was the star of the show as Buffy, she was nothing without her Scooby Gang and all the other amazing characters, fiends, villains, supernaturals, paranormals, other dimensionals, and of course, her wardrobe, which was quite extensive.
It’s interesting that Buffy has become such a cult classic because it didn’t have the best ratings at the time, of course we were watching it on the WB, but it sure had a lot of hardcore fans. It’s really shapeshifted TV.
