For Your Viewing Pleasure …March 1, 2008 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed
Jagadiah is getting into Buffy the Vampire Slayer. As she and I have very similar tastes in television, I’ve found myself actually waiting for her updates about the classic. Her twitter updates have been just awesome.
I have found that I am a creature of the new age of television and DVDs. There is something awesome about marathoning television shows. Ten years ago, we didn’t have this option in our television viewing of being able to commit to a quick viewing of bulks of a series.
The days of waiting from week-to-week have been altered. And, with cable competing with networks for viewers, all-day marathons, for me at least, are a wonderful escape.(And yeah, I will watch a marathon of just about anything. Well, not “According to Jim” marathons because that would just be torture.)
Joss Whedon could not have done this series, or the follow up Angel, any better. Teenage angst, budding sexuality, and so many metaphors for dealing with “personal” demons.
With that said, let’s go back to vampires. Joe Powell is writing about them over at this house today.
Yeah, I’m love me a good vampire. He and I both liked 30 Days of Night but not everyone did.
We are purists. The bloodier the better.
That’s how we roll.
