I fell in love with the slayer crew back in 1997 or 1998 time frame. Not sure exactly, but it was unmistakable; Buffy captivated me. I’ve recently acquired all 7 seasons + the comics for season 8 and I think 9? The details are a little fuzzy and I’m rushing this post, so I can’t look it up right now. Maybe later.
My favorite episode is, of course, Once More with Feeling. It is the musical. I prefer the latter half of the series to the first half, after Angel left and when Buffy and Spike were “together.” The soldiers were a bit lame, but so was the overall show if you really tear it down. Why would you want to do that, though?
Buffy was fine and all, but I was in love with the doppelganger Willow and, of course, the dark Willow after she goes into the shop and sucks up all the black magic from the books so she can go out and battle the idiots that killed Tara. Yeah, I didn’t like Tara.
This is a must have on demand. I just put episodes in circulation of my daily re-runs and I’m content. It’s like having my own television station with only the shows I like. You can’t beat that with a stick!
