Day 30: What You Think Made Buffy So Great
And so we come to the end of this meme. I feel like I should go out with a bang here and write a long essay about the greatness of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But I don't think I will. Instead, here's my short reasoning as to why it's so great:
Women characters on screen, not just talking about boys, in a show that wasn't a romcom. Kicking ass and not being guilty about it. There was nothing else like this before Buffy came on our screens. Combine that with awesome dialogue, some really good character development and wonderful relationships and I was sold. The fact that the characters were women wasn't important. It was a sci -fi magic monster beat em up comedy drama tragedy apocalypse end of the world saving the world heart wrenching life affirming wonderful wonderful show.
Thanks for reading this everyone. I'd like to invite you to leave your thoughts on what made Buffy great, in the comments section.
