Hark! A slayer!

I've been watching a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer recently, and every time I do I think to myself, "This is ridiculous."  And it is!  I mean, there are these ugly vampires and demons in every episode and anywhere between one and a dozen people are sure to die.  How many people does a town like Sunnydale even have?  I especially like it when the demons disguise themselves as human order to attend high school, I'm guessing.  Seventeen-year-olds be living the sweet life!

That being said, the show is really addictive.  It's ridiculous, but I like it.  I've got some major suspension of disbelief going on because otherwise I would pick at all the holes and  nonsensical bits even more than I already do. 

I like to pretend that the show takes place in an alternate reality that just closely resembles the 90s.  Obviously I don't know much about this alternate reality or everything would make perfect sense.  That's what I keep telling myself, anyway.

I. LOVE. BUFFY. Wholeheartedly and unapologetically.

That said, I still haven't seen the entire first season. I came into the series when it was originally on TV and I had already missed the first season {think I came in sometime during season 2}. The quality of the show in season 1 just isn't as good as later seasons.

I pretty much adore anything Whedon. But Buffy holds a special place in my heart. Just FYI, there is a season 8 in comic book form.
