When Buffy came out in the summer of 1992, I was just about to start high school. It was the first movie I saw with both horror and comedy elements, which probably account for my taste for such films (one of my favorites being Shaun of the Dead, but I couldn't include that because sadly, there are no vampires!). I was also a big fan of Kristy Swanson and thought this film was awesome! And Pee Wee Herman as a vampire was something I just couldn't miss.
There was also a very popular TV series that followed from 1999-2003 and for some reason, I never watched it. I really couldn't tell you why, because I would think it would be right up my alley, but for some reason I never got on board. I was in college when it came out and it was in the days before DVRs, so if you missed a show, you missed a show and that was that. I tend to not get into stuff if I miss the first shows. Maybe this summer I'll check it out on Netflix.
