Buffy the Vampire Slayer


#1

The first episode was broadcast 20 years ago today, and it’s one of the greatest TV series ever (plus Angel is the rare really good spin-off show too). So, yeah, discuss and stuff.

How come? First couple of seasons are patchy but the rest has dated very well, probably because it was so ahead of its time


#5

Yeah, it holds up really well. Great show.


#6

Hi wife, I’m a grown man who wants to watch a program about cheerleaders doing karate kicks or whatever. Do you still respect me? Oh good.


#7

If your wife doesn’t like buffy consider divorce

One of my uni mates was obsessed with it, and as he was the only one of us with a telly, we all ended up watching it too. Was actually pretty good as far as I can remember.

I have been rewatching the entire thing from season 1 episode 1 with my eldest (12). We watch one episode a week usually and she absolutely loves it. I think it has held up really well tbh.
