Saying "Buffy" To Librarians Is Like Holding A Tasty Bacon Treat Over A Dog

When I say that librarians adore Buffy, I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. But were you aware that Joss Whedon was creating a graphic novel akin to Buffy Season 8? Hmmmm? Well? Were you?
You were?

I never knew I loved Buffy until a month ago, when Bede and I started watching Season One. I'd tried watching one episode once, and didn't get into it. Well, now I see what all the fuss is about, and I am thrilled that I can see the episodes at my own pace. I am kvelling to the female as the action hero while the male (Giles) is the researcher. I do have some criticisms of the library, though. For one thing, it's badly lit. For another, the shelves don't seem to be that secure for a structure that's built on top of a natural disaster area. Still, I've got to give Giles credit for having the library tidied up at the beginning of each episode, no matter how much destruction the forces of evil wreaked upon it the week before.

I can't resist this one.

Still a Buffy fan,

So librarians like Buffy because of Giles?

Oh goodness me, no. Giles helps, of course. I believe he even made the cover of American Libraries back in the day. No no, librarians like Buffy because it was a remarkably intelligent show hiding behind the facade of a common vampire concept. Hell = high school with each episode, at first anyway, representing some aspect of the world, only taken to its logical extreme. I've found that many, like Alkelda up there, would watch one episode and not get into it. So try watching two. Trust me, it's worth it.
