For those of you who watched the show, you’ll recognize that facade immediately. For others, a little background. I was flipping through the channels one day when I caught this amazingly sensual scene between a young blonde girl and a very hunky guy. Buffy and Angel. I flipped away, but then had to go back and watch. That was it! I was hooked! I went back and caught up with every show I had missed and faithfully followed Buffy the Vampire Slayer for all the remaining seasons. To this day it is my favorite show of all time and as a writer, I learned a lot about dialogue, character-building and pushing boundaries.
To honor my love of the show, I convinced my family to take a trip with me to Torrance High School, the real life location of the fictional Sunnydale High School where the shot was set in the early seasons. You’ll notice that to make it truly official, I wore my Sunnydale High School t-shirt! And in case you haven’t guess it by now, I am truly a nerd at heart. (I was also a lot blonder and thinner in case you didn’t notice! LOL)
My daughter and I used to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer together off and on. Me more than my daughter, but she indulged me about it. This is a photo of us all dressed and ready for the Season 6 premiere. We had a fun time watching at our little party and even had some friends join us for the show.
Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the show first came on the air.
Wow, is this week flying by! Today’s Throwback Thursday is to yesterday when I got a surprise and was able to go see the filming of the Rachel Ray show! Actually part of one show and then a whole show. What we taped yesterday will be on air on October 24 and November 6. I must set my DVR to tape the shows and see if we’re visible. Actually, my sis got to ask a question on one of the shows, so I know for sure that she’s visible.
