you enjoy the humour of buffy
if a masterpiece ever exists in genre television it is season 3 of buffy, if you have watched it and can't appreciate the depth then there is something wrong we you.
I love season 3. The Mayor and Faith, plus the return of Angel from hell - brilliant! :D
that I believe is coming out later this year in the US. Not sure it's coming out in the UK or not though.
i went to a lecture/discussion-type thing where several academics have written buffy-related philosophy books. it was very interesting.
Something similar anyway. It's focusing on the last two years of Buffy (there've alrady been two or three books on the first five years)
The chapter's called Season Six and the Supreme Ordeal. It's about how the show fits in with the concept of the monomyth (i.e. the idea that all stories people tell are essentially versions of one mythic structure that's lasted for thousands of years) and how Buffy's success in combining mythic structures with modern day "issues" is crucial to its success a show and whyy people relate to it.
some of your dissertation mentioned or referenced Buffy? What you said there^ rings a bell. I might be wrong though....
people who mock buffy are IDIOTS.
I hate noticing typos late
It's black and very friendly. And it was also discovered to be a boy post-naming. :D
