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
During the fourth season intros, one of the flashing scenes at the end shows a Bringer, which doesn't appear until season seven as a regular character. However, the first appearance of the Bringers, and the First Evil, is in season three's episode "Amends", hence the appearance of the Bringers in the credits pre-season seven. See more »
Throughout the series, in episodes with 'good' Angel, Angel does not have a reflection in windows and mirrors. This is explained as it being due to the fact that he is a vampire. Vampires do not cast a reflection as they do not have souls; however, as Angel has a soul he should therefore cast a reflection. See more »

Since being shown on BBC2 in the UK, this show has had two time slots, one for an edited version with hardly any excessive violance and bad language, and one late at night, uncut. See more »
Buffy the Vampire Slayer has an odd name. It looks like it has cheese. Unfortunately, some people are even put off because it was produced in the 90s. Please don't let any of these things get in the way of watching this show (like me :C). The humor is on point and self-aware, the heroine is awesome, and even though I'm only starting the second season, I can say with confidence that this show is GOOD. Plus, Giles is the best. If you don't know what I mean by "Giles is the best," it's obviously time that you watch the show, learn why, and then agree with me wholeheartedly.
Sure, there's some cheese, but it's good cheese... like in pizza! Everyone loves pizza. For me, it only makes the show more entertaining. Sure, some of the production values are a little... but don't let that stop you from loving the show just like you'd love Doctor Who (dare I say the first couple seasons of Smallville?) or some of the other low-budget shows with terrible special effects!
But wait! There's more! This show itself is a commentary on high school life (and life in general). The villains and conflicts that the heroine encounters are all representative of problems that someone might encounter in real life. There's a depth to the content that just isn't there in many other shows out there. If you watch the show, you'll see what I mean. It's terribly subtle, the way I'm hinting at you to watch the show, isn't it?
