I am just too amused by the level of interest here in my level of interest in Buffy. I knew the show was beloved but, geez.... I'm thinking there must be some way of harnessing this Buffy-love. A collection of Buffy poems, like Krypton Nights. Or a Buffy anthology. Yeah, there's the ticket. Everyone so inclined should write a Buffy poem. Send them to me, I'll post them here. And after that? What say you?


As for me, well, I just finished "Prophecy Girl," the last episode of season 1. Count me converted. Great show, lots of fun, and at times it really sings. There are not so great moments: "I Robot...You Jane" is painful at times. Early on the show is still finding itself and it shows at times with awkward moments. But the best hints at what must make everyone so ga-ga.

The episode with the puppet amused me to no end. The gang has already faced dozens of monsters, vampires, demons, but they're clearly beyond creeped out by this little dummy. Funny stuff.

"Angel," the episode, was pretty great, as was "Out of Sight, Out of Mind." I'm thinking the invisible girl hasn't been seen (or unseen?) for the last time.

Ok, so I'll soon be launching into further seasons. Happy? Get cracking on those poems.

Finally, something worthy of commenting on and you have to go and turn it into a damned poetry discussion ;-)

Just wait until you get hooked on Angel too!

It only gets better after Season One.

I would have never thought I would like Buffy and avoided it like the plague for years. Then when they started playing it several episodes in the morning, several episodes at night, I couldn't stop.

Now I have to write a friggin Buffy poem; thanks.

Um, I think I'm glad I finally provided something "worthy" of comment. I think?

Don't worry. I'm not your stalker. ;-)

Although I have been known to heckle poets and accidentally turn the lights off during readings.

Added 'Ode to the Slayers'

I'm a bit rusty; first thing I have written in a while. :-)

Better not get word of your idea for a collection of Buffy poems to Bryan. He'll beat you to it! He'd adore the challenge of creating a book of Buffy poems. Any man who regularly wears a class ring from Sunnydale High is just crazy enough to give it a shot. ^_~
