- It empowers women. This show was years ahead of its time with its feminist message. A moment that illustrates this is when someone doubts the petite girl’s strength and Giles assures them that Buffy is “quite capable.”
- It’s perfect escapism: after a boring day at the library, watching Buffy and the Scooby Gang battle evil demons is as far away from St Andrews life as you can get.
- Anthony Head as Giles, is the librarian and father figure we all wished we’d had.
- Its on Netflix, making it dangerously easy to binge watch.
- If you grew up watching Buffy as a kid there would have been plenty of jokes you did not understand that you can catch up on now.
- The story lines never fail to surprise, with everything from voice stealing demons to those who make you sing.
- Joss Whedon, who directed The Avengers, made this series, and the man is a genius.
