In this episode of So…I’m Watching this Show, it’s finally time to start talking about Kristin’s all-time favorite show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. After a somewhat lengthy intro chat about just how damn good Syfy’s The Magicians is (HUGE Spoiler Alert), W & K breakdown season 1 of Buffy with a focus on some of the particularly impactful episodes. They tackled issues of gender and rape so early on in the show that it really set the tone for the following 6 seasons which never shied away from taking on social issues.
Don’t be fooled though. Despite the rather impressive amount of gushing we do over the show, we are able to step away and recognize this season’s faults, whether it be the casting, the graduates from the Sarah Michelle Gellar School for Acting, or the somewhat anti-climactic final fight. That said, we’re happy for you to join us on our inaugural journey back in time for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer rewatch!
