Episode 55 - The Usual Bad Guy Taunting Thing - Week of 3/22/17

The Fellowship is pleased to present our reminiscences about the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series, which premiered 20 years ago this week. It ran for seven seasons, spawned a five-year spinoff, and put both supernatural horror and teen drama on the map. We also talk about the 1992 movie a bit, and share some favorite moments from the show. And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Bought IDW's Humble Bundle - a ton of comics with the proceeds going to charity [in this case, split between Traveling Stories and the CBLDF. -m]
Playing Heroclix and having a great time
Catching up on reading - digging Superman Reborn
And introduced some new readers to Valiant's Faith title in the hopes of maybe catching the kid too

[Note: iTunes didn't begin operating until 2003, with movie rentals starting in 2008. -m]
[Note: The movie grossed $16m from a $7m budget, and rates at 5.6 out of 10 on IMDB. So not terribly successful. And rated PG-13. -m]
[Note: the animated series was started in 2002, but never got off the ground. I hear there may be some stuff on YouTube :-) -m]
[Note: Buffy and Angel are available to stream on Netflix. -m]
