i love buffy the vampire slayer. i have seasons 1-3 on my i-pod, and am waiting impatiently for the rest of them to be released. they keep me company on my commute, along with my other bffs mulder and scully.
this animated series would have been a great addition to my collection…it wouldve been nice to have SMG add her voice to the mix, but whatever. its good to hear their voices again, isnt it? heres an interview with jane espenson and eric wight, members of the creative team that was working on the animated show. its a good read.
any comments about the feminist messages in buffy are welcome. i could google it and list some of them here, but i would rather see what you all think. personally, i always had a problem with SMG’s obvious dieting: no matter how physically strong buffy was supposed to be, i couldnt help but notice that when she turned sideways, she practically disappeared. willow was pretty, well, “willowy” there for awhile too. even spike seemed to be unnaturally thin (he was also dead, which is a decent excuse).
so have at it. watch the video. bask in the young energy, big brains and humor that was “buffy the vampire slayer”. ah, buffy. its nostalg-eriffic!
