Things We Saw Today: Happy 20th Anniversary, Buffy!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered 20 years ago today and went on to change the face of television. As The Guardian puts it, the show was “the thrilling, brilliant birth of TV as Art.” You can check out Sarah Michelle Gellar’s emotional essay about the iconic show HERE, and Anthony Stewart Head’s piece on the show and feminism HERE. Also, have you seen the original unaired pilot (complete with pre-Alyson Hannigan Willow)? Check that out over on YouTube.
