So…I’m a bit (and by bit, I mean several years) of a latecomer to this party, but I’m finally watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Now, I’ve had Buffy sitting on my Netflix queue for years, but I’ve never been able to get into it. I think I’ve tried watching the first episode three or four times, and just couldn’t finish it. I finally decided to skip finishing episode one (for now) and just move on to episode two. Turns out this was a brilliant idea. I’m now hooked on the campy horror.
Even though I’m only in season one, I feel like I’ve been severely misjudging this show. (It’s amazing how easy it is to misjudge something you haven’t actually watched.) So far I’ve found that it’s well written, really funny, and even a chicken like me can watch it alone without getting too freaked out.
The other good thing about this? Now when the boy makes Buffy references, I won’t have to sit there with this blank look on my face forcing him to explain. In fact, I’m probably going to annoy him to no end with my new found love of the Buffyverse.
And on a non-Buffy related note, but a sparkly vampire related note, I leave you with this…
