Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  1. Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan Reunite and Share Adorable Pics

    The family that stakes together stays together.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended 12 years ago last Wednesday, and over the weekend, stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan got together to make the entirety of the Internet long for the good old days—and to hang out together, probably. Mission accomplished.

  2. Feminism Ain’t Easy: That Time Joss Whedon Used Our Tweet to Call a Jurassic World Clip Sexist

    Saying 'Joss Whedon' and 'feminist' in the same sentence will get you a variety of responses. There are those who think him one of the best examples of the term while others think he shouldn't be associated with it at all. However, I'm going to write about it today as recent events have made me realize there may be no harder thing one can choose to be than a feminist. Allow me to explain.

  3. Incredible Girl Presents: Geeks and Kink at Emerald City Comicon

    Because the same people that go to Comic Con go to Dom Con.

    "What's this weird connection between fans of Star Trek, S&M, and the Renaissance Faire?" - Margaret Cho, Notorious C.H.O. This is the question I wanted to explore when I brought my panel, "Incredible Girl Presents: Geeks and Kink" to Emerald City Comiccon this past weekend.

    On TMS, where Buffy never dies.

    Can you believe that today marks the 18th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Yes, in addition to feeling old as the Hellmouth, we also feel incredibly nostalgic for one of the best, most lady-empowering, forward-thinking shows ever made.

  5. The Psychology of Inspirational Women: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  7. Remastered HD Version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Is Full Of Problems (and Crew Members)

    It's all falling into place. Of course, that place is nowhere near this place.

    When Buffy first hit the airwaves in 1997, it was filmed in standard definition with a 4:3 aspect ratio. Nowadays many TV owners have widescreen sets capable of much higher definition. So what do you do when you want to go back and rewatch those old shows—leave them in the correct aspect ratio and do what you can to improve the quality of the original film? No, in the case of 20th century Fox's remastered version ofBuffy the Vampire Slayer, you totally ruin them. Whee!

  10. Dorkly Presents The Most Ridiculous Sex Scenes In Comics

    Maybe there was something to that "Comics Code Authority" thing.

    Listen, there's nothing wrong with two consenting adults using their shrinking powers to pleasure one another. But as Dorkly points out, it's still pretty effin' weird. And that's one of the more normal ones... just wait until you see what they did in Buffy Season 8 (and in an arc called "Twilight," no less—we see what you did there, Dark Horse!)

  11. Sarah Michelle Gellar Thinks She’d Break a Hip If She Played Buffy Again So She’s Not Going To

  12. Sleepy Hollow Got Buffy’s Michelle Trachtenberg to Play Abigail Adams

    "MO-OMMMMM!"

  13. #WhyBuffyStayed: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Riley, and the Cycle of Abuse

    It's no stretch to say that women stay in abusive relationships at least partly (I believe largely) because our culture tells us to. In a thousand different ways, beginning with “he only makes fun of you because he likes you,” women are instructed to see acts of coercion, aggression, and violence as romantic. Sadly, one of my favorite shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is guilty of spreading this dangerous myth.

  14. Closet Cosplay Tips and Suggestions for Everyone Who Left Their NYCC Outfit to the Last Minute

    New York Comic Con kicks off this Thursday, and in theory if you've decided to cosplay then you have your costume mostly done by this point. But you and I, fellow procrastinators, know better. Sometimes you want to go as something, but you have neither the money nor the time to rig up a steampunk Harley Quinn outfit or some genderswapped Monterey Jack from Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers duds. Enter closet cosplay: The last vestige of the casual, lazy, cheap, and/or pressed-for-time cosplayer.

    Living an Anthony Stewart Head appreciation life

    I don't know if it's just that I'm in that particularly "Friday" state of mind already, but I'm pretty sure this fanvid by shadowhisper is among the top five greatest things I've seen in my entire life. Oh, Giles and '90s one-hit wonders. I will never stop loving either of you. Screw it, it's Friday. Have all my Uther and Giles gifs:

  18. Things We Saw Today: The Illustration For “Human” In D&D Is Awesome

    You mean humans can be not generically stubbly white males? GASP

    The rules for the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons seem to be getting everything right. First, they're inclusive of all different kinds of gender identity. Now, they're even illustrating "humans" as not generic white male game characters. Thanks, D&D. You rule. (via Twitter)
