"In every generation there is a chosen one... she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer." Buffy Summers knows this tale by heart, and no matter how hard she tries to be just a "normal girl", she can not escape from her destiny... Thankfully, she is not alone in her quest to save the world, as she has the help of her friends, the hilarious (and surprisingly quite effective) evil-fighting team called "The Scooby Gang". Together, Buffy & co. will slay their demons, survive one apocalypse after another, attend high school and college... and above all, understand that growing up can truly be Hell sometimes... literally.

In Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992), Buffy says that her only life goals are to "graduate, go to Europe, marry Christian Slater, and die." Although Joss Whedon has repeatedly stressed that the movie should not be considered "canon" for the TV show, by the end of it Buffy actually accomplishes three of these goals - graduate, go to Europe, and die - although not in that order.

In nearly every episode presented in widescreen, there is crew/equipment visible and/or revealing mistakes. This is because the series was originally shot for 4:3 frame and these issues would not have been visible as the show was originally intended to be presented. As such, one should take much of the goofs reported on episodes as being conditional on applying only to the widescreen alternate version. See more »
The sequence with the Mutant Enemy mascot, the little monster that goes "Grr Argh" at the end of all episodes, was changed for a total of six episodes: in "Becoming Part Two" (#2.22) it said, 'Oh, I need a hug." in "Amends" (#3.10) it wore a Santa hat and bells were jingling. in "Graduation Day Part Two" (#3.22) it wore a graduation cap. in "Once More With Feeling" (#6.07) it sang its "Grr Argh." in "Storyteller" (#7.16) it sang, "We are as gods." in "Chosen" (#7.22) it looked out at the viewers instead of looking straight-forward.

Buffy is series that was not only consistently good, but a series that grew better over time. The first season is good, but not fantastic. It was shorter because the WB was not sure if they would have a viewing base and only had 12 episodes. The second season developed the characters and you began to see the magic of the show. As the series progresses, I am astounded by the writing, directing, and acting. Joss Whedon is a genius of the camera and master of the pen, and anyone who argues with me is fooling themselves. The cast, as well as the characters, matures over time and become living, breathing people that you believe.
In short, if you are considering watching this show, I highly recommend you watch all of the first and second season before making any judgements. Frankly, this is my favorite story of all time. It transcends the TV, and beats out most books, movies, and other TV shows. This show is beautiful.
