OMWC Season 1: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 1
New girl Buffy Summers moves to Sunnydale and learns the town is not just populated by frighteningly old-looking teenagers, but by some frighteningly old undead citizens, too. It's cool, because she can kill them if she just spends enough time in the library. Other season 1 highlights include, a sexy praying mantis, a wild pack of hyenas, a demon-hunting dummy, and some bone-chilling fashion choices. Also, get ready for a blossoming romance with a super inappropriate age difference and a lesson in why you shouldn't skip your CPR recertification.
In which cheerleader Buffy meets President Snow and learns her destiny is to fight and kill the Vampires. Luke Perry shows up to help her and Hillary Swank is there, so it's kind of like an episode of 90210 with the undead. Also PeeWee Herman and the guy from Lady Hawk show up as the sunlight-allergic. Carousels remain creepy.
