I've been a "Buffy" fan since Episode 1 aired. Since then, I've seen every episode no less than 50 times, and I'm not exaggerating! I watched the first run, repeats then syndications. Chiller Channel, for a very long time, used to have a "BTVS" marathon every Sunday night, two times in a row! Yes, I would watch them twice through for a 6-hour marathon each week. I also have them videotaped.
I was lucky to bid on a lot aka a group of DVDs on ebay and won a large boxful for about $24! In the box was ALL the seasons of the show plus complete seasons of a number of other series I love. Yes, there were a few blech things, but it was a major triumph to me.
I do like "Angel" but never as much as the original series; of course the crossovers are great.
I recall the agony of the series being dropped by the network, thinking that I'd never see the rest of it. However, I soon found one of those off-to-the-side channels that was airing the episodes late-night Saturdays. *WHEW*
I've met only one cast member: Nicholas Brendon. In the autograph line, I had my Celtic fairy sitting on my shoulder, one that can be moved through a control. He told me, "That thing is creeping me out!" *giggle* Yes, I guess he can look rather eerie when he turns his head or looks around. Maybe I can post pictures of him someday. He's absolutely unique and is from Midsummer Knight's Dream.
Check it out!
Beware! Owning one of their furbabies can be addictive! I finally had to be sensible and sell some of mine since I can't get to events as I used to. I would carry them at Renaissance faires and at conventions.
I love seeing this series listed when people are mentioning best-written TV series. It's usually there along with "Beauty and the Beast" (the one starring Ron Perlman) and "My So-Called Life".
I have a collection of novels based on both series, and some are quite impressive, not just "color by numbers".
BTW: My mom and I both are crazy about Spike! Yes! She LOVES the series and often would bring up questions and ideas about it. This is a lady whose favorite channels are The Weather Channel and CNN. *giggle*
No one had chimed in, so I decided I should~especially because we have to get this site livened up! IT HAS TO BE RESURRECTED FROM NEAR DEATH! If there's any show that's more about coming back from the dead, I don't know what it would be. THIS should be TPO's inspiration!
