It might seem kind of an odd time and place, but next week the BBC will be airing a half hour special on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its legacy in media.
The special episode of Front Row is in honor of the 10th anniversary of the final episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer airing in Britain. Host Naomi Alderman will be talking to Joss Whedon, Anthony Head, Neil Gaiman, Rhianna Pratchett, TV executives Jane Root and Susanne Daniels, and fans of the show Blake Harrison and Bim Adewunmi. So get that big antenna out, or keep an eye on the BBC Front Row website on the day after Christmas to catch it.
Wait, that’s a radio show, you say. You mentioned television. I did! Pivot TV, doing an excellent job of living up to its mandate to target the 18-34 year-old audience, has announced that it has acquired syndication rights to not only Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but also Veronica Mars. The channel will be instituting the Buffy and Veronica Power Hours block every weeknight from 10 to 11, starting January 13th.
So if you are tired of having to choose your own Buffy episodes from Netflix, and would like someone else to do it for you, or, you don’t have another way to watch Veronica Mars, Pivot Network is your place to be. Or to DVR.
