    These two shows were the reason, well that and a job I had at the time, that I got on the internet, granted, rather late (in 2003), in the first place. "I doodle. You do too. You do doodle too..." - Willow (to Buffy in 'Gingerbread' epi 11 season 3) It's also where I got my posting name... as Oz says to Willow, it's a man's chord....

    I've seen every episode of Buffy. So many great lines from that show… it was a lot of fun. I saw James Marsters in concert three months ago with his band. Long live Spike! :laugh:

    Is it still the same band? Ghost of the Robot? (I think that was the name...) I have a bumper sticker that says "Spike Lives" that I won for an entry in a fanfic writing contest... the site that it happened at was a good place to go once upon a time, but you know how it goes, a long-time troll never goes away and they just root in there... too bad...

    Yeah, it was Ghost of the Robot. They played a lot of songs from Murphy's Law but they're coming out with a new album soon.

    I've never heard his stuff, I'd like to... I suppose it's on Youtube or Vimeo or someplace in the webs somewhere...

    I got to meet James Marsters at a convention a couple of months back. He is the coolest person ever.

    I'm a huge fan. Buffy is my favourite tv-show ever. Too bad it quit, but the last two seasons weren't all that great so it's probably for the better.
    The Season 8 comics are okay, but they have a very different feeling from the show. I thought the comics before that felt more like the show.

    Also, Sarah Michelle was here for the premiere of The Grudge. I got her autograph, although she didn't come across as very sympathetic in the interview she did. She mocked the interviewer to the point where he said: 'Ok, you take over then...' and handed her the microphone. I don't know if she's often like that or she just didn't get his vibe - I think it was the latter.
    Anyway, it was fun to see her. She arrived in a nice white limousine and all. You never forget things like that. :)

    Did Stephen ever mention Buffy in one of the novels? He often mentions popular series at a certain point, like Twin Peaks (I believe in Needful Things he mentions it), Fringe (I believe it's mentioned in In the tall Grass) or X-files (he also wrote an episode of it, of course).
    I haven't come across Buffy though. Anyone did and if so in which book?
    Could also be he's not a fan of it.

    I was a big Buffy fan when it first aired. So many great episodes. I still watch it once in a while when I see it while channel surfing. So many great characters and episodes.

    I missed Buffy when it was popular, but DD#1 got me to watch just a few weeks ago & now I'm hooked. We're in season 5 right now. I saw the last few (with Fillion) when she last watched the series, so I know how it ends, but I don't even care-it's great fun. Now I think I might need to watch Angel, too...

    It's always good to see a new Buffy convert. I did a Buffy re-watch last year and it never loses it's appeal. Angel is a very good show as well and I think you'll enjoy it.

    Buffy is such an intelligent and well written show. It really ushered in so many other shows that followed and tried to copy it. Joss Whedon is incredibly talented, as was the cast.

    So hooked. Half way through season 6 now, and I don't want it to end. Is it weird that Anya and Spike are my favorite characters (and Oz, when he was there)? Buffy, Zander, and especially Willow get so annoying!

    Well that's an interesting take on who's annoying and who isn't... but I like Anya and Spike too.... especially when Anya hits on Willow when they do that spell... Hi-larious...

    i love both shows and watched them beginning to end several times. I was ecstatic when Buffy finally developed a relationship with Spike and was even more thrilled when the character transcended from one show to the other. 'Angel' deserved more seasons then it was allotted...

    I rewatched season three of Buffy recently and had a re-appreciation of Buffy and Angel's relationship.... and how having your heart out for all to see could be interpreted as incredibly gross if you stopped and thought about it...
