in every generation..

Preface: I am not a TV watcher. I don’t have my shows. We don’t have cable. I have no idea who is nominated for a Golden Globe, ever, because I don’t follow anything new. I do, however, have a propensity for getting completely sucked in to old TV shows and watching the entire run for weeks on end. Like a couple years back, I discovered Veronica Mars, watched all three seasons on DVD, and had no one to whine to about how crappy it was that it got cancelled because I was several years too late, wahh wahh.

I don’t know what I was doing in the late 90s, but I wasn’t watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Maybe in the 90s there just wasn’t as much to appreciate as there is when there is nostalgia involved. Welp, I am burning through the seasons on Netflix while I do chores and homework {and hubby is out of town}, and holy style and music flashbacks. It is awesome! Why didn’t you guys tell me.. 15 years ago?

It’s had me reaching into the depths of my CD collection for Bif Naked, dusting off the three-barrel curling iron, and reminiscing in kind-of horror that my middle school closet contained many similar items. I know I say this all the time, but I soo miss the 90s.

  1. Haha.. I got the 6 season box set for Christmas and I’ve been making my GF watch them. I LOVE buffy.. OK technically I LOVE Cordellia. It’s totally Scooby Doo for big kids with Cibo Matto playing at the Bronze. One of the few guilty pleasures I held onto from my old TV days.. Glad someone else is validating my vice. =]

    1. Spike, Ha! This makes me all kinds of happy/validated myself! (: I just saw one with Buffy/Faith dancing at the Bronze to Curve. Was like.. wha? Thought of you. 😉

  2. Totally! I miss the 90s too. And since we talked about Buffy earlier (and I finished Felicity, another late 90s show), I decided to start watching Buffy again while I cook/clean/blog etc. It is still awesome.

      1. She’s kind of whiney. But you would LOVE Meghan. She was my favorite character. I dunno if I’d recommend Felicity to you. I didn’t love it, but I ended up liking it ok. You could give it a try, but maybe start on season 2.

  3. I LOVE BTVS!! I was a major fan…it was my obsession-worthy show of the 90s!! And Sarah Michelle Gellar was so kick ass! Who else could slay evilness from the Hellmouth and still make out with super-hot dead boy Angel? mmm! Love!!

  4. I’ve been thinking about jumping into the Buffy series this summer. I had friends who LOVED it in high school, but I never got it.
