I first suggested that we cover the original Buffy movie way back in August 2012, not long after we started covering Buffy. Somehow, it ended up as a “this would be a good way to finish things” idea, and then with the birth of #snarkathon in December it became a “watch it alone-together with the Traumateers” thing. Aww.
Anyway, let’s get to the movie, shall we?
We open in Dark Ages Europe, where we’re given approximately two seconds of Slayer backstory – one girl in all the world, yada yada yada, she has a creepy birthmark on her chest known as “The Mark of the Coven”.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
We are fond of saying that Cordelia Chase named our blog. It was only right, then, for Buffy the Vampire Slayer to become the first TV series covered by the Snark Squad.
Kirsti is a long time fan- the kind with random Whedon trivia stored away for opportune moments. Sweeney first watched the series in 2012 while in Paris for graduate school. She should’ve probably been doing school assignments. This is her second watch. Lorraine is watching it all for the first time. Jokes about her naivety and inability to see the future are welcome. Spoilers are NOT.
Welcome to the Hellmouth, Snark Squad style.
