Buffy and the Slayerettes
(Thank Willow for that one.)
I'm surprised there is no thread for this popular cult classic. I remember having this huge fascination with the show many a year back (see: when I was 10 or so) but never really watched anything other than episodes featuring Spike (then my own personal teenage heartthrob before I discovered Legolas). I'm determined to watch the whole show, and I've started from season 1 episode 1 and am currently on episode 4. Not amazing progress but I am enjoying it quite a lot.
"What's Buffy? some of our younger ones will say.
"Well, I reply, "think of the pedestal on which all amazing TV is built. Think of a less-regressive Vampire Diaries where the hero(ine) is the protagonist, not the hunky vampire dude."
Buffy the Vampire Slayer admittedly came from a not-so-popular movie by the same name (I've yet to watch but apparently it's horrendous so let's see for ourselves) but spawned the fan-favourite spin-off show 'Angel' featuring Buffy's love interest... Angel! If only there'd been a show named Spike... Anyway!
Let's kick-back to a little Don LaFontaine 90s goodness.
Also, here is the unaired pilot for the show, which fortunately was fixed, edited, reacted, etc. If you've seen the first episode you definitely see they've taken inspiration from some of the better scenes.
For anyone interested, there are streams of the old episodes on WatchSeries.EU -- that's a link to season 1 -- so check it out for your Buffy goodness.
