Day Six: Favourite female-driven show
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
“In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer.”
At the end of last year I started watching Bones, and just after Christmas I got the season 1 – 4 box set and I was reading the back and I read that David Boreanaz used to be on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Of course, I’ve heard of these shows before, but I never watched them, wasn’t really my thing. Then at the start of this year I was channel surfing and I saw Buffy the Vampire slayer was on the Sci-Fi channel, so I watched a bit of it, flicking through the channels, and then I watched a bit of angel after that. I thought it was alright, you know to watch when nothing’s on.
About a month later, I came home after school and there was nothing on TV so I watched a full episode of Buffy and thought it was pretty cool. Then I started watching it every day after school and it soon became my new obsession.
Then I got the Buffy and Angel box sets for my birthday. I finished Buffy about two months ago and Angel a week ago.
Buffy has made my year amazing. I’ve had nothing going for me this year. I’ve been stressed out beyond belief, I’ve had so much school and it feels like no one really listens to me. But Buffy has made me stronger, made me feel like I have a good group of friends and that I’m included. I know, it’s not real Kelsie, but at least I feel like I can fit in somewhere.
Because Buffy is such a female driven show, the characters have given me strength that I could only dream of.
Thank you, Buffy the Vampire Slayer for making two-thousand and ten bearable.
