CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER

Today marks the 20th Anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and we are so excited to honor the series with an original song, “Demons to Fight,” by Jenny Owen Youngs. You can download the song here for free! We hope that it helps you celebrate all that Buffy has brought to the world for the past two decades.

“I wrote this song to reflect my personal experience with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. There is a reason why, 20 years later, this story about one girl in all the world still resonates so strongly: it gave so many people the invaluable gift of feeling seen. Buffy the Vampire Slayer helped a generation of weirdos (myself included) feel better about feeling different.” – Jenny Owen Youngs

Join us tonight at 8pm ET / 5pm PT for our live Buffy-watch of S1e1, “Welcome to the Hellmouth,” here on our Facebook page!

2.08: The Dark Age

At a certain point in a young girl’s life, she will be forced to confront the reality that her Watcher was once her age. For Buffy, that time is now. Stuart McLean (who plays Philip Henry) drops by to talk morgue drawers and zombie makeup, and Kate Leth returns with a tweed-ful installment of Buffy FashionWatch! This week we’re discussing s2e8: The Dark Age.

2.06: Halloween

Kate Leth returns, and not a moment too soon! Sunnydale residents are being mystically transformed into their costumes – Buffy is a helpless 17th century noblewoman, Willow is an accidental sexy ghost, Xander is a soldier, and Cordelia is… well she’s Cordelia, but in a cat costume. Across town, Oz wonders aloud for the zillionth time, “Who IS that girl?” and we wonder aloud “Will he ever find out??” This week we’re discussing s2e6: Halloween.

2.05: Reptile Boy

Our first live episode, recorded at the NerdMelt Showroom in Los Angeles!!! This is the one where white dudes with rich dads sacrifice women to a demon lizard for financial gain… why does that sound kind of familiar? Plus we’ve got THREE glorious guests – Chris Farren, Brittani Nichols, and (first repeat guest!) Gaby Dunn – helping us sort through the wreckage left at the intersection of Patriarchy Ave and Demon Worship Alley. This week we’re discussing s2e5: Reptile Boy.
