rebcake: Buffy, pretty slayer (slayer)
[personal profile] rebcake
Buffy the Vampire Slayer first aired on television 20 years ago this month. I did not watch it at the time, because I had seen the movie — which sounded right up my dark comedy alley — and it did not live up to expectations. Also: very small child in the house led to very little TV viewing. Back then, we didn't have such high expectations for TV shows — except for Twin Peaks — so I felt safe in my assumption that the show would not be an improvement over the film. I'm very glad to have been wrong.

To celebrate, I'm going to post any little tidbits I can remember have found interesting about the show, focusing on 4-5 episodes at a time.

But first, THE MOVIE:

1. Buffy does NOT burn down the gym at Hemery High.
2. The historical slayers/watchers (all played by Kristy Swanson/Donald Sutherland) make their debut here and not in "Fool for Love". 
3. Let's all be thankful that the movie's menstrual cramp-vamp-radar was scrapped for the show.
4. Buffy's partner-in-slayage/love interest is a pretty greaser called PIKE. Is it really plagiarism when you're stealing from yourself? I say no.
5. Paul Reubens might have been the funnest thing in the whole undertaking. How can he be more entertaining than Rutger Hauer? IDK.

The UNAIRED PILOT, which you can download at, has a couple of interesting deviations from "Welcome to the Hellmouth":

1. A different Willow. Questions? Comments?
2. Jonathan makes his first appearance here, but doesn't show up on the air until "Inca Mummy Girl". (Danny Strong also auditioned for the role of Xander. I have thoughts on this.)

What do you remember about these "prequels"?

BUFFY: What's the matter? All that killing, you afraid to die?
FAITH: That's mine.
BUFFY: You're about to get it back.
FAITH: Man, I'm going to miss this.
FAITH: You did it. You killed me. Still won't help your boy, though. Shoulda been there, B, quite a ride.

The other day, I felt something odd in my hair, and after some maneuvering around past where I could see, I ended up pulling out a wooden shard. From a hairstick.

It's not the first time my hair's eaten a hairstic, and the fact that this means it's setting a trend pleases me deeply.

BUFFY: (bursting into Spike's crypt) Get your gear together. We need to... (doesn't see him) Spike?
SPIKE: (from behind) You civilized cultures, that's called trespassing.
BUFFY: Good thing you're uncivilized. We got trouble.

~~All the Way~~

Hello, and welcome to another article on Commonly Confused Words! Today’s topic is a pair of words that I confuse all the time, so I thought I’d settle it once and for all: what is the difference between “appraise” and “apprise”, and what are some ways to remember which is which?

First, let’s start with some definitions...

appraise/apprise, with examples from Steven Universe and Star Trek (2009) )

Tune in next week for another set of Commonly Confused Words!

(The Star Trek example is shamelessly borrowed from Deastar’s marvelous So Wise We Grow.)
