Buffy Summers just moved with her mom from L.A. (where she set fire to the school gym) to Sunnydale, which is alas experiencing a plague of vampirism. She meets nerd Willow Rosenberg, soft-cool skateboarder Xander Harris and his mate Jesse McNally, fashionable snooty Cordelia Chase and the somewhat creepy new, British librarian Rupert Giles. When a corpse with bite-marks is found in a locker, she realizes but refuses to acknowledge that her vampire-killing past is catching up with her and keeps Giles, her watcher (trainer), at arms-length, but is stalked by Angel who refers to the hell-mouth. Finally her destiny kicks in... Written by
