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 teenagers...in 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.
