Buffy The Vampire Slayer Marathon

SMG Mad Skills: She has a brown belt so don't get into a fight with her or your @ss is grass.

I’m a nerd just masquerading under the smoke and mirrors of bronzer and lipgloss.  In my consumption of films and books, at the moment, my love of zombies does trump vampires.  During highschool, I was a total fanatic about the tv show Buffy The Vampire Slayer.  Many years ago, while I was working in a chi-chi boutique, my friend A came barelling in and huffed, “You will never believe who came in! (insert 2 second pause) Sarah Michelle Gellar! I totally sold her a Fendi baguette and Gucci flip flops.”  This was at the height of her popularity and my fan-dom.  I have since calmed down 100 levels.

Every one is losing it for Bella, Edward and Sookie Stackhouse these days, but what makes Buffy stand out from the rest?  Buffy Summers is the Chosen One who lands in Sunnydale High, California teenager by day, the Slayer by night.  Along with her friends Willow, Xander and her mentor Giles, she fights against the vampires and the occasional demon.  The tagline for the show is:  “In every generation there is a chosen one… she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer.” Like a pretty dress on a hanger, cute in theory but better on.  And with DVD’s, you could probably go through the entire series in a month, if you truly commit.  You’ve got time.  Gossip Girl doesn’t come back until September. 

The Buffy Cast reunion. Where are they now?

Some reasons why I suggest a blast from the past Buffy Marathon:

  • Girl Power & Dramedy - Sci-fi mastermind Joss Whedon did a great job of mixing the action with the comic relief.  While Buffy seems like it would be a flaky show if you think back to the movie, there was a lot of great dramatic moments in between the fight scenes.  This is the show that made Sarah Michelle Gellar a star but she often made you feel empathy for her character.  Teardrop.
  • The Buffy Drinking Game – Every time, you see SMG flash a bra strap, you down a shot (perhaps a Lemondrop).  Obviously, this game is meant to be played with friends.  I don’t condone it solo.
  • Buffy/Angel Sexual Tension – Season 1 of every series is always the best.  David Boreanaz played Angel, the long-suffering vampire with a soul who has the hottts for Buff.  The two have crazy chemistry.  It seems every heroine needs a vampire lovah.

Hellloooooo! Someone looks really good with their shirt off.
