So, you’ve got your band candy for trick or treaters, you’re dressed as Red Riding Hood, and you’ve planned a Buffy marathon to celebrate Halloween, but you realise 144 episodes in one evening is a bit of a stretch. Every episode of Buffy is suitable watching for Halloween night (apart from Doublemeat Palace. Double meat is not double sweet), but here are some episodes that are particularly Halloweeny.
There’s a reason we have a Giles keyring and why we’re furious there’s no Giles Pop! Vinyl figure. It’s because Giles is awesome. We love it when characters act against tweedy type, and Rupert Giles has certainly had his fair share of surprising moments.
It’s that time of year, when we wear stripy 50 denier tights, drink spiced pumpkin lattes, and post Instagram photos of aforementioned attire and beverages while we wait for trick or treaters. Watching horror films is also standard practice on the 31st October, but what if Freddy Krueger gives you bedwetting night terrors?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer finished over 10 years ago, but I still think about the impact the show had on me. You wouldn’t think that a 30-something-year-old librarian would have much in common with any of the Scoobies, but we do share some life parallels. We all do. Even though Buff lived on a Hellmouth and lost her virginity to a vampire, it’s amazing just how much the show taught us about real life.
2016 was dire apart from Netflix. Thank goodness for Stranger Things, winning us over with excellent characters and making us yearn for a time when Bowie was still alive and Brexit wasn’t a thing. Then came another genre bending show, The OA. We scoffed that a series about a girl with extraordinary abilities could be as good as watching Dustin and co. but we gave it a go and we were hooked.
