Xena, a mighty Warrior Princess with a dark past, sets out to redeem herself. She is joined by small town bard, Gabrielle. Together they journey the ancient world and fight for the greater good against ruthless Warlords and Gods.
"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.Written by
Seth Green disliked being underutilized in season three, as he hated having to show up for work, when he'd only have one or two lines the whole time. This is why Oz is absent midway through season four. See more »
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 one of, if not THE, best dramatic series ever made. People that have never seen the show, or have only seen one episode of it, would probably laugh at that statement. But having seen all 7 seasons of this brilliant series, I feel quite confident in my opinion.
No other show touches on the major issues of humanity this show does: immortality and it's pros and cons, the power of love and friendship, the inner strength we all have within us, and the ability to appreciate life and learn to laugh at the things that get you down. There are moments of happiness, drama, tears, and moments that make you rediscover who you are, and Buffy deals with all of them. Every episode is layered with meanings and insights into humanity, all in some show about a girl who slays vampires.
Seeing these characters change and grow over the course of the episodes is a gift. Unlike other shows, the characters on Buffy are never the same from season to season. The events of the show change them and mold them into new people all the time, that's how good the writing is.
No episode is boring, in all 144 hours of the series there is something worth watching. Some episodes are truly brilliant pieces of television, especially the gems directed by series creator Joss Whedon such as Becoming, The Wish, Hush, The Body, and The Gift. These are some of the best hours of television ever produced.
The writing is spectacular, perfectly capable of balancing comedy, drama, and horror in every episode.
This is so much more than a show about a girl who slays vampires. It can change the way you react to events in your life and the way you view things. It's that good.
