Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I am rewatching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I am currently on season 2, the part where Angel has turned bad and back into Angelus. It is fun to go back and watch it years later.

One thing it has driven home is how much things have changed since 1997. None of them have mobile phones, the computers look like from the stone age and the fashion has made me laugh more than once. I particularly enjoyed Willow and Oz’s courtship and Cordelia has been great fun. When I watched it the first couple of times I never realised how bad the make-up was for some of the creatures and how the Vampires Buffy fought tended to stand rather still.

James Marsters is fabulous as Spike and Drusilla is wonderfully creepy.

It’s amazing how many actors had a starting role in Buffy. The chap from HAVEN is killed in one of the first episodes and one of the actors from CSI:NY is killed by Darla. I’m pretty sure Piper’s (from CHARMED) love interest belonged to one of the demon cults.

OMG, I LOVE Cordelia, her dialogue is hilarious:).
