B is for Buffy the Vampire Slayer



I have another confession... I am a Buffy the Vampire Slayer nerd!
I always loved Hammer Horror films and martial arts films, like Drunken Master, so Buffy was an immediate hit with me.
  1. Strong female lead - check
  2. Lots of bad puns and silly jokes - check
  3. Lots of fighting - check
  4. Lots of monsters - check. 
If I'm ill, there's nothing I like better than snuggling up in bed with a cuppa to watch episodes like Once More, with FeelingHush or Superstar
I'm generally a bit of a Joss Whedon fan as I also own Firefly and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

  1. I love Buffy. The characters are all fantastic. My fav is Spike. Bad boy Vamp all the way.

    1. Oh, I agree about Spike & always thought Angel was a bit too moody for my liking :)

  4. Can't wait to see where you go with F. How are you going to choose between Firefly and Filofax?

  6. I loved Firefly and I have all of the seasons of Buffy. She was a very strong protagonist. Nice to meet you on the challenge.

    1. Nice to meet you too, & I was very disappointed that Firefly wasn't continued. I agree about Buffy & I think I'm not a Twilight fan partly because Bella seems such a weak character to me (that said, I have only read the 1st book).

  7. I'm showing my age, but when Buffy was "new" to tv I still lived at home and had zero control over the remote. It wasn't until I was on maternity leave that I got to watch the reruns every morning. I loved it! Gotta say though, I was always pulling for Angel, I love 'em moody!

  8. I have to admit the series was good . . . but the movie will always live in my heart. Nothing beats Pee Wee Herman over dramatically dying for a whole scene!

    Nice to meet you on the challenge!

  9. I wasn't following you on B day, but I just noticed this post and had to comment - Once More With Feeling is one of my favourites too. Someone else has mentioned Hush (it's amazing how many Buffy posts there have been over the course of the alphabet) but I can't remember it - must check it out!
