The Best of Buffy on Facebook #1: Buffy: The Fan Experience

buffy on facebook

One may think that running this blog, acting as on admin on What Would Buffy Do?, running a Tumblr and Facebook page for The Cynical Slayer, and almost daily re-watches of Buffy would be enough Slayer goodness for me. But as all fans know, you can never have enough Buffy. That being said, I count on a number of Facebook fan pages to provide me with my daily dosage of Buffyverse goodness. Running a Facebook fan page is no small feat, and there are so many quality Buffy ones out there that I want to share with my followers. These posts are dedicated to giving you information about the page administrators, the content that the page entails, and how to follow the page.


Today’s first ever installment of The Best of Buffy on Facebook is:

Top 10 OMG Moments in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Counting down those moments that had you screaming “Oh my god!!” at the television screen. I avoided putting character deaths on the list because those are a given.


 

10.  The Glory Reveal at the End of Checkpoint (5×16)

That moment when you find out Glory isn’t just some super strong wacko. She’s a freaking God.

Buffy echoed the fandom’s thoughts with her disbelieving, skeptical “Oh.”

Buffy and the gang have taken on countless vamps, demons, and four formidable Big Bads already. But a god? How can they even begin to deal with that? With Quentin’s reveal, the stakes of season 5 were officially upped at this moment. Continue reading

Top 10 Dances in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The Scoobs know how to get down. I’m not including stuff from OMWF because then the list would be full of it and THAT’S NOT REALLY FAIR IS IT.


10. The Snoopy Dance (5×03)

Mostly here because of it’s popular status within the fandom, and the fact that good sport Nicholas Brendon always does it upon request at various appearances. See here and here.

9. This Dumb Dance that Xander Does (I forget the episode…HELP ME)

wtfff

This just makes me laugh because it’s ridiculous.

What to Watch After Buffy #1: Orphan Black

How do you beat the Buffy Hangover? How can you remedy the seemingly endless period in which you are in a perpetual state of Buffy-induced unrest, unable to find another television show that can measure up to the golden standard of Whedon perfection? No matter what you try, there just seems to be something missing from other programs. Maybe the plot lines are too loose. The dialogue too generic. The characters too one-dimensional.

Sorry to say, but I’m here to tell you that there is no cure. I’m confident that there will never be another show better than Buffy in our lifetime. However, while there may be no show that rivals BTVS as a whole, there are a lot of shows that master certain aspects of it.

In this first entry in a series of television show suggestions for what to watch after Buffy, I’ll be honing in on certain aspects that you may have enjoyed about BTVS and recommending TV shows based on those elements. Today’s suggestion is the Canadian science fiction series Orphan Black.

GO CANADA!!
