People make fun of it all the time, but Joss Whedon is a genius. Ask anyone who's followed his work. Buffy was great and I miss that show immensely. Don't watch much TV anymore though. Such a waste of time! Would rather buy the episodes on DVD personally.
My daughter watched this show all the time and I eventually found myself right there with her. OH but Angel was my fav... hubba hubba. I did enjoy the fact that she kicked @ss all the time and was able to defend herself. Not to mention that she is a hottie!
