Top 10 reasons to watch Buffy

To kick off my buffy themed week I’d thought I’d give a reason why people should watch Buffy, and her sister show Angel for a couple of reasons. One, if you haven’t seen the show I feel the need to make you. Two, Tim, the second and mostly dormant half of the Get Geek team has yet to watch it.  In all honesty though it was a good excuse to remember the fun times had watching the show, and if you have already seen the show it should be fun for you as well.

Creative episodes like Hush, Superstar, Conversations with Dead People, and Smile Time

The shows were great at pulling off really cool episodes that were very different, but could still feeel like they belonged. In hush there is no talking for most of the episode, in superstar one of the side characters becomes the main character in some alternate dimension episode complete with a new opening theme/title cards. Conversations with dead people features 4 completely isolated, but thematically connected stories. Then one of my favorite Angel episodes, Smile Time in which Angel is a puppet for most of the episode.
