Twenty years ago Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 1 episode 1 aired on the The WB to modest ratings. The story of the chosen one, a teenage girl destined to protect the world from vampires (and more), resonated with audiences long past when the show ended. I have watched all of the episodes over and over, and although I cannot recreate that magic of when I watched the episodes for the first time, sharing the series with someone new is the next best thing. One of the reasons Buffy was so successful was the witty banter the characters let loose in the face of this dangerous life. My list is not complete. I can probably write a list of 200 quotes, and still not be done, but I have chosen ones that really resonate with me. Some are not exactly quotes and are more dialogue moments, but I think you will enjoy them anyway.
“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 The Vampire Slayer began 20 years ago today, and besides being a completely iconic television series from Joss Whedon starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, who kicked ass and sometimes took names, it also contained some serious style, both of the time and timeless.
Amazon has tons of Buffy clothing and other items for the slayer in your life. Check out some of these below.
This 28-disc DVD set comes with all nine seasons of the CBS television sitcom How I Met Your Mother, which was narrated by Bob Saget, and starred Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan, and Cobie Smulders.
Note, this deal is valid through Saturday, March 5, 2011 while supplies last.
Math time: at $69.99, you’d be paying only $10 per season! That’s a steal, considering the box set is worth getting even at the original price.
This DVD box set contains all 7 seasons of the popular Joss Whedon television series which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as the titular vampire slayer along with Alyson Hannigan, Anthony Stewart Head, and Nicholas Brendon. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which ran from 1997 to 2003, also co-starred Eliza Dushku, Seth Green, James Marsters, and many more, as well as introduced the character of Angel (David Boreanaz), who eventually got his own spin-off show.
