I’ve never watched a “full” episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! I qualify that because, back in the day, when it was on, I’m sure I stopped a few times to see what it was about. For some reason nothing ever caught and/or held my attention.
On FB yesterday, I went to a friend’s page to read and respond to what I thought were messages about her brave husband, who’s in the service, returning home this weekend after a very long absence. (An aside: God bless her because she’s a much braver woman than I could ever be. I can’t begin to imagine handling the long periods of time alone.)
But there was something else afoot there! Okay, *smile* there were very comforting thoughts for her (we’ll call her Teirney) by a good friend (we’ll call her Rebecca). I’m disguising the names to protect the innocent here folks!!
I learned in little bits and pieces of the messages that Buffy and Spike "brought a house down" (not sure, but it may have referred to a sex scene!) Hmmm, here I always thought Buffy had a thing with the guy known as Angel. But wait, unless I misunderstood, and that’s possible, she did have a thing with Angel too. Buffy? Is this the same little Buffy that I thought she was? Evidently not!
So, today I’m shopping for the DVDs to see what I missed. Who doesn’t know I love vamps? Come on, how, and why, did this one slip by? My only response to that is: I thought it was a kid’s show!
Though Spike is a hottie (he’s blond--need I say more) and I’m very glad he’s all grown up now.
Oh, there are others in the picture? Sorry…I didn’t notice.
Leave a comment about your favorite episode, or tell us why you liked, or didn't like, the series.
I'm going shopping now...
