If you love streaming video services and binging tv shows then you kind of owe it to Buffy The Vampire Slayer series. Not directly buy BTVS set the stage for serialization of a tv show. It broke barriers no other show has done in its time. With the “hell-god” himself Joss Whedon at the helm of the series it was destined to thrive! With its witty dialogue and fresh ensemble cast it was sure to change television history as we know it! And it did!
When people hear “Buffy” think of the 1992 movie with the same name as the series… but the series has so much more to offer no offense to the movie. The movie was blasted but the script (written by Joss Whedon) was praised of course. This lead Joss to develop the series to make up for the botching of his idea. This lead to one of the best stories I personally have ever watched!
Not only was BTVS full of charm and potential, but it also had heart and great comic relief. A major reason to watch was the continuation of the story which helped mold the way we binge tv series today! Also, BTVS has several Emmy nods for such things as make up.
The heart of the show was Sarah Michelle Gellar taking the role of Buffy. Gellar who had a soap opera background which won her an Emmy in 1995 for outstanding younger actress in a drama was no amateur when it came to “knocking us dead” (pun intended). Buffy The Vampire Slayer series has earned Sarah Michelle Gellar 5 teen choice awards and a Golden Globe nomination. With all that being said, be sure to check out Buffy or at least put it on your list of shows to watch! You will not be disappointed! Oh, and Joss Whedon went on to make a slew of other great shows!!!! He also wrote and directed The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron so there is that… Give it a try and let me know what you think!!!!
