SHORT ON TIME?

Short on time? Don't have time to watch TV? Giving Television Without Pity a run for their imaginary money is the precocious and Tivo-addicted Dawn Summers, with her own insightful and snarky recap of the current TV season, and predictions of which shows will suffer with awful ratings before slipping away...

If only she had let Buffy throw her into the Hellmouth at the end of Season Five, she might not feel this apparent need to stay glued to the TV for the benefit of all mankind. I guess that's part of being The Key.


[If terms like "Hellmouth" and "the Key" are nonsense to you, go rent Buffy the Vampire Slayer Seasons One through Five. Then rent Six. You'll thank me. Eventually.]

Hellmouth, how I miss thee!

Seriously, life is not the same without Buffy. I still watch the re-runs even though I don't think I ever missed an episode when they were on for real. My Alias addiction does not even come close to my love for Buffy. (Although have you seen Lost yet? I could seriously get hooked on that...)

I was a latecomer to Buffydom. I first started watching season 3 and caught the previous seasons in reruns. I was a bit apprehensive when my wife (girlfriend at the time) told me how great it was. I was hooked after one episode. Great writing and the allegories were awesome. My personal favorite was the fraternity who turned into monsters after drinking the tainted beer. Classic.

J, I am so missing Buffy I can't think about it. Haven't seen Lost yet, but love Alias, so that bodes well. I'll try to get a tape from someone.

Harry, I love that episode. For months after I saw it, a friend of mine and I, whenever anyone said the word "beer," we'd say "Beer. Foamy. Good."
