8 Things I Love About Buffy

Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the first shows that really sucked me into the world of sci-fi and fantasy shows. It has a special place in my heart, and I’m hoping to one day get a Buffy cosplay put together.

Anyways, these are my top 8 reasons why I love the show:

  1. The 90s fashion-I love all the outfits, especially Willow’s interesting sweaters.
  2. The boys-whether you’re team Angel, Spike, or Riley, there’s a favorite for everyone.
  3. Giles-Even though he has a smaller role as a Watcher, his sarcasm and exasperation with life are great watching the show, especially now that I’m older.
  4. The Scoobies-I’m so glad the gang grew as the show went on, since the mix of people is awesome. I’m personally a giant fan of Willow.
  5. The monsters-Even though the show is mostly about vampires, the big bads and variety of monsters always makes it exciting.
  6. Willow and Tara’s relationship-Their healthy same sex relationship is something that rarely happens in shows, and that’s amazing. Plus they’re adorable together!
  7. It deals with the tough stuff-From death to breakups, Buffy presents a good example for how to deal with the hard things life throws at us. Especially since it’s from the perspective of mainly young adults, it’s very relatable.
  8. Buffy herself-She’s definitely one of my favorite strong female TV characters. Even though she’s got pretty admirable traits, the fact that she’s not perfect and makes mistakes makes her realistic and relatable.

I hope these reasons convince you guys to watch a few episodes! And, feel free to leave your favorite things about Buffy or favorite episodes in the comments.

Day 20-Favorite TV Show

I have so many favorite TV shows, but the current one I’m watching is Orphan Black.

There’s no easy way to describe the show, but Tatiana Maslany stars as many vastly different clones that all look like her. I mean, she plays at least seven clones (in the new season), and I swear they all are played by different people. She’s got mad acting skills, and it shows in the show.

All the other actors and characters are amazing as well, including Evelyne Brochu as Delphine, Jordan Gavaris as Felix, and Maria Doyle Kennedy as Mrs. S.

I can’t say much about the show without *major* spoilers, so I recommend all of you guys watch it. It’s a sci-fi show full of drama and action, and you’ll get really attached to at least one of the characters. The premise is that there are a bunch of people that are clones, and they are in danger from many different groups of people over the seasons. Almost every episode has a twist or two, and I can guarantee¬†you’ll be sitting on the edge of your seat the entire time.

If you guys need a summer project, I’d binge-watch the first three seasons of the show, and then catch up on the current fourth season!

Also, if you guys have any show suggestions, please leave them in the comments!
