Buffy-a-thon 2008

To celebrate my purchase of The Chosen Collection Maggie, our friend Kristin, I had a Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon this weekend. It was truly glorious - the three of us geeked out, ate vampire cupcakes and quoted lines for about sixteen hours (two episodes per season plus bathroom and pizza breaks ... not to be confused with bathroom-and-pizza breaks, which would just be gross). And because I know you all want to be just like us, here's the list of episodes we watched:

Season One- We decided to watch the first and the last episodes of this season, "Welcome to the Hellmouth" and "Prophecy Girl."

Season Two- James Marsters is my TV boyfriend, so we watched "School Hard," the first appearance of Spike. We added "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" to celebrate the light-and-fluffier side of the first few seasons. Also, Xander/Cordelia = awwwww!

Season Three- Okay, "Band Candy" was a must just to see Giles as Ripper, mackin' on Joyce. Hi-larious. And because we secretly love Badass Vampires!Willow and Xander, Kicked Puppy!Angel and Cleveland?!?Buffy, we had to watch "The Wish."

You ask what he's rebelling against and he says,
'What have ya got, pig?'

Season Four-
Me: I will fight to the death over "Something Blue!"
Maggie: You know, "Pangs" has more Spike -
Me: Done.
And then we watched "Restless," because it is a classic Kristin and I couldn't remember watching. 'I wear the cheese ... it does not wear me.'

Season Five- At this point, Kristin and Maggie are so worn down by my constant Spike squee-ing that they let me have "Fool for Love." But then it was time to bring the room down a bit with "The Gift." *sniff sniff*

Season Six- This was a hard decision, because we didn't want to get too much into Willow's whole mess. So we chose "Life Serial" for whacky Trio hijinks and "Tabula Rasa" for shits and giggles.

Aaaah, vampires!!

Season Seven- 'Buffy, the Slayer of the Vam-pyres.' For that line alone, we had to watch "Storyteller." And to bring the marathon to a close we watched the series finale, "Chosen."
Me (with a blanket over my head): I love this show so much! *sob*
Maggie: You are ridiculous.
