BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (The WB)
ANGEL (The WB)
Like a shrewd blackjack
player, writer-producer Joss Whedon doubled-down this season, splitting
Buffy Summers from her love interest by sending the broad-shouldered vampire
Angel to fight evil in Los Angeles. The result? A familiar
show stepping into fresh territory: college life (and an underground rebel
group as interested in vampires and demons as the Slayer is), plus a spin-off
full of swirling film-noir promise.
And in the second opinion
area, Bruce Fretts named Buffy as the #7 (#7?? Hello!! Something
is wrong here when "The King of Queens" is higher than Buffy) show on TV.
Here's what he said about it:
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
Sarah Michelle Gellar's
demon duster has lost a bit of her bite since entering college (Anna's
note: Whatever!!! What show has he been watching?), but this
supernatural soap still serves up dialogue so juicy, you could sink your
teeth into it (as when a snooty classmate dissed Buffy's fashion sense:
"What a cute outfit- last year").
