Sometimes, when I am out alone at night, I will walk around and pretend I am Buffy, patrolling for vampires and demons. It makes me feel strong.
The fighting choreography has always bothered me. Even though Buffy trains and matures, getting stronger and more skillful, and even though she fights vampires and demons of varying power, it seems like each fight is equally difficult. She could be fighting a new vampire that barely knows his own strength or a badass long-lived demon, and neither battle will seem more challenging than the other.
The Gentleman never scared me. It makes me feel a little left out.
I am a proud and passionate Catholic, and when I told one of my Catholic friends about Buffy, she told me that she didn’t think well of the show because of the paganism and portrayal of demons. And that got me thinking: Maybe Buffy does have some sacrilegious stuff in it, but almost nothing has taught me more about love, death, sacrifice, friendship, and family, all of which the Church would approve of. Now, I just feel bad for my Catholic friend, because she will never learn those amazing lessons the way I did.
