Buffy the 1st Time

Facebooktwitterrssyoutubeby feather

So I’ve recently started watching the Buffy, the Vampire Slayer television series for the first time.

I know, a little late to the party.

But I’ve got this weird thing about retconning and reboots and other stuff that messes with original work. Still, I watched the original movie recently with my youngest and, aside from pointing out all of the young actors who are old now, quite enjoyed it.

So, I thought, why not?

I started making little comments to myself during the first episode. After a while, I wondered if this might be a fun exercise to help me get back to Twitter again. (I used to love Twitter, and sometimes I still miss it. I definitely still have friends on it.)

And so, the hashtag #Buffythe1sttime was born.

I’m a few episodes in, but when I catch up, I may even start live tweeting it to entertain myself. Find below my vague commentary for the first episode. Look me up on Twitter (@WritingDad) to see where I’m at when this posts.

Be well, everyone.
