    And how many of those are a patch on the original outing.

    Bizarrely enough, I'm working my way through Buffy at the moment for the first time (that sentence probably needs a re-edit :)).

    Finished Season 3 the other day and loving the smart dialogue and characters. Although I'm currently in mourning for
    Armin Shimerman, loved his Principal Snyder.

    Season 3 was superb. Some amazing episodes in that season especially when Faith arrived.
    It was just before it started to go downhill a bit, Season 4 and 5 ok, the less said about season 6 the better, then improved for final season 7.

    Have watched all the seasons and really enjoyed most of the episodes. But in my opinion unless they do an X-Files then don't bother.

    Not sure if this is the right place, but Buffy and Angel are on offer at Amazon for £4.99 per season.

    £60 for the whole lot digitally is great value imo. Works out at under 25p an episode.

    Buffy is one of my all time favourite shows. I've seen it through a couple of times now, and I know I'm in the minority, but I thought it got better as it went on. It got darker, and it got more miserable, but it also became more nuanced and complex. The throwaway smart-assery wouldn't have worked in the same way. It reflected the characters' journeys from late adolescence into adulthood.

    I love Firefly and Serenity (obvs), and even Angel. Nobody writes characters like Joss Whedon.

    If Whedon gets on board for a revival, I'll cautiously follow... I'd love to see him return to TV. His film work is (mostly) fine, but I think he is better served by TV, where his characters have more room to grow.

    Let's just all agree never to reboot this...

    Where a revival works is if they do something like Ash vs Evil Dead: understand what made the original work, then allow for age & adapt accordingly.

    Still going through Season 4 which is actually pretty decent so far (the "Initiative" is a nice addition).

    Just watched the fantastic "Hush" episode which will be hard to top. The "Gentlemen" were outstanding :)
