    Another thread dedicated to an old program. Couldn't find it in the search, and rightfully so. Was Wackbag around in '97?

    Anyway, I figured since I enjoy Firefly, and Buffy is a Joss Whedon creation, I might as well check it out.

    I feel like a total fag for watching this, but you know something, it ain't bad. I mean, it's not great, but it's not horrible. It's got a good sense of humor about it, the story is halfway decent, and there isn't a single unattractive woman on the show (I have officially renewed my crush on Alyson Hannigan). This show is like an X-Files for girls, that guys can jack off to.

    Anyone else get into this show? It's on Netflix now. I'm on season 2 and it's just now starting to get good. I don't have much interest in watching the Angel spinoff though.

    On a LOL note, or at least I thought it was funny:

    Me: I started watching that Buffy show. It's not bad.
    Friend: Why the hell would you watch that? Fag.
    Me: Dude, it's a bunch of hot chicks. Alyson Hannigan's in it.
    Friend: You should watch Angel instead. At least that is more manly.
    Me: How is that manly?
    Friend: Well because at least you're watching dudes.
    Me: Ok, so I'm the fag.
    Friend: No! Uh...I mean...the guys fuck chicks..you know?
    Me: Uh uh.

    Actually, Charisma Carpenter, Cordeilla on Buffy, is in Angel. Also Amy Acker from season 3 on. Also, Elisabeth Rohm as a hot cop chick who helps Angel. Angel was pretty decent in its own right.

    There are crossover episodes, so you may want to watch them while watching Buffy, but i don't remember what season in Buffy that starts off the top of my head.

    I really liked Kendra (Bianca Lawson). Pity she was only in two or three episodes. I thought Buffy was a pretty decent show for what it was. It was certainly better than the movie!

    Buffy and Angel were both great shows. Honestly, Whedon's best work.

    Ah yes, the first time Buff died. (When a slayer dies, a new one is called.)

    I loved buffy and angel. Watch them in the original order...I forget when Angel spun off of it but there is some crossover plot etc. Basically you watch in the order listed from here...These people did a great job of listing the best order...Also, use the IMDB goofs and facts after the episodes...hilarious stuff. LOVE xander's one liners...


    Code:
    Ever wonder how to watch Buffy and Angel in order? How to make sure you get all the proper crossovers in their place? I have tons Whedonverse related documents going back years and this is one that I email very frequently to new viewers. So why I haven't posted it on this blog by now is beyond me. If you know a new viewer that would like to see the episodes properly, send them here....but for the love of Sunnydale tell them to not look around until they're done watching! Spoilers everywhere on this here Buffyfest blog for a new viewer!

    Loved both Buffy and Angel. If you are only on season 2 you are in for a treat. It just gets better. Season three is sick.

    And the musical episode fucking rules. Ties together everything that has happened and will happen for the rest of the series.

    technical note: if you are watching them on Netflix, you will get buffy in 16:9 widescreen that was aired in england. when it aired here, and the dvd releases, are in 4:3 letterbox because thats how Joss meant the show to be shown. He didnt want widescreen. in the widescreen version, you will sometime notice mike booms, behind the scene guys, shadows that were meant to be cropped out.

    Yes season 3 with Faith/The Mayor is bad ass. I personally really enjoyed season 5 too with Glory. She was so fucking funny. Also Spike rules!!!

    Spike after he gets the chip is one of my favorite characters in all of television.

    The scene on the motorcycle with Jonathan discussing the Blooming Onion fucking cracks me up. Wish James Marsters was in more stuff.

    That is also the season we got the yumminess that is dawn.

    One of my favorite scenes:

    Xander, Willow and Buffy are in the Bronze when they notice the dude Dawn has a crush on (RJ) is dancing with a really hot chick in tight clothes dancing all sexy like. Then
    Xander (about the girl dancing with R.J.): Daddy like!
    Buffy: What is that shirt made of — paint?
    (Willow's eyes go wide as she realizes...
    Willow: Buff—
    Buffy: I’m glad Dawnie isn’t here to see her precious boyfriend getting all thrusty with some slut-bag hussy— (The hussy turns around - it's Dawn. Buffy goes slackjawed.) Oh.
    Xander: Oh! Oh, no! Daddy no— I wasn’t— when I was looking, I wasn’t… oh, god!
    Willow: Right there with ya!

    23 posts and nobody has accused any of us of being gay for watching buffy/angel. Impressive!
