Dear female high school student: You have been chosen to fight the dark, never-ending forces of evil. You're likely to die young and alone, because you're supposed to keep your calling a secret. Sounds awesome, right? Oh, wait, you don't have a choice. Happy hunting!

Grrr arggg! Into every generation an excellent TV show is born: One show in all the world. The Chosen One.
It’s been 20 years since Buffy Summers, Mr. Pointy, The Bronze, and Giles’ always-smudged spectacles graced our small screens, and the world has never been the same (mostly because she saved it… a lot).
There were plenty of quips (“Out. For. A. Walk. B**ch.”), tears (Spike’s undying devotion, sob), and frights (bunnies, plus demons and stuff), but Buffy the Vampire Slayer was so much more than that.
The Joss Whedon masterpiece created several feminist icons, spoke to addiction struggles, portrayed the first lesbian sex scene on broadcast television, showed that vampires were sexy long before Twilight and made it ok to wear pink leather pants in public… well, sort of.
Whether you were Team Angel, Team Spike or kind of just wanted Giles and Joyce to get together, the show had »
“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” let’s face it, is the story of an inclusive (at least in Fantasy terms) group of friends, led by a young woman, who fight villains that are basically various expressions of patriarchy. What I’m saying is, speaking as a longtime fan, it feels especially relevant right now. Co-star James Marsters, whose portrayal of the villain-turned-antihero Vampire Spike was one of the show’s enduring highlights, seems to agree. Speaking to the A.V. Club to mark the show’s 20th Anniversary, Marsters was asked what, in his opinion, the show can teach audiences today. »
