On Buffy

As I’m sure you’ve seen, it’s the 20th anniversary of when Buffy the Vampire Slayer first aired on TV. I actually kind of came to Buffy rather late in the game. My initial exposure was to a few eps my (and Buffy’s) freshman year. My second roommate had turned it on and I’d always been curious, […]
