There was so much about that show that was appealing that I didn't mind the teen-age angst that usually affects me like nails scraping across a chalkboard. Talented writing kept the dialogue snappy and the characters connected in a way that made me care. I know, I know--that's the secret but for me it was also the attitude.
I like seeing a strong heroine. It doesn't mean she wasn't upset that she was too busy killing vampires and trying to save the world to make it to her high-school prom but the girl had priorities. Of course, finding a dress that allowed her to hide a wooden stake might have been problematic but Buffy didn't whine, she was a problem solver. The show was fun, entertaining and above all, at least for me, memorable. I even liked the musical episode and that's usually another nails-scraping-across-a-chalkboard moment for me.
What about you? Do you have a favorite television show or movie that's stood the test of time?
