So many people, me included, have decided that Joss Whedon is just a hack...until you become engrossed in the story lines of his shows. I didn't start watching Buffy (or Angel) until it had been on the air for 6 years, they only did 7 seasons of Buffy. I could have kicked myself for not ever watching it before and dismissing it as shlock.

The first seasons of high school were the same as my high school experience, without the Vampires, but there were enough bloodsuckers in HS to make you think they were real.

I was in a couple of community theatre shows during Buffy's heyday. Heck yeah I watched it! But it was funny how many other theatre people were religious about watching it too. Especially the guys! They could hold entire conversations using just lines from the show. Come to think of it, just for S&Gs we spent 20 minutes one cast party conversing using only lines from plays we had been in or seen...

That could be as fun as a Monty Python and the Holy Grail recitation...yes, been there, done that.

I know, I know, but have just not acquired a taste for them. To me they are the oysters of the entertainment industry. (That's right, me no like oysters either. )

Guess I'm more of a Mel Brooks kinda girl. "Werewolf? There, wolf!"
