Day 04 - Your favorite show ever

It's kind of funny how easily I came up with the answer to "My favorite show ever"; there is only really one viable option, and that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. There have been so many shows that I've loved and adored over the years, but Buffy was the first show where I really became immersed in the whole fandom aspect, and where I actually wanted to talk about it, think about it, obsess about it, rewatch it, etc.

I love Buffy. I still love that show to this day. It's comforting and fantastic, and so much fun. It was heartwrenching when I watched it as it aired, but looking back, I love that this television show brought me to such highs and lows and made me so invested. I can't remember a show previously that had done that. Before, it was sitcoms which you kind of leave behind once they're over, or maybe for a drama there was ER, but nothing else that captured me the way that Buffy did. 

It's not just that it was the first show to do this, but that to this day, I still care about Buffy and the Scooby gang. I still adore them, even when they annoyed the crap out of me (I'm looking at you, Willow... or Dawn). The characters were amazing, the writing fantastic -- pithy, witty, and heartbreaking when necessary. BtVS (just typing that kind of gives me a thrill!) will always be my favorite show. It set the bar. It showed me what television can do. I think I will always love it.

That is fantastic. I wonder if I get Logo... hmm.

Not that the niece and nephew will let me watch much tv. 1-year-olds fail to recognize the wonder that is Buffy (though they like So You Think You Can Dance and Glee for the music and dancing)... but once they're older, I'm planning on making sure they watch ;)

Sister, I am so with you about BtVS. There was just something about the show that was so universal. I suspect it's that Buffy just wanted to be an ordinary girl (whatever that is). I think most women/girls struggle with that exact same thing...
