    Hello there! I discovered the Buffy boards just a few weeks ago while I was reading up on Angel and looking for some comments on episodes as I have been re watching the series, and thought it would be awesome to be part of the Buffy community! I haven't been part of anything Buffy related, with the exception of a small steam group that's mostly inactive.

    I've had an interesting history with both series. I would consider myself to be a fan for about four years now, however I have been interested in it ever since I can remember. I knew both Buffy and Angel as "that vampire show my parents watched", and only remembered very little as I myself was very little, and the episodes that I saw were mostly re runs, or maybe even episodes of Season 5 of Angel that were still coming out. I couldn't remember much other than Buffy was a girl in highschool, and I recognized three of her friends by their faces but not their names (Giles, Xander, and Willow), and Angel worked at an office and Spike was there. I could recall of few scenes of S5 of Angel, but the only episode I remembered was "Smile Time". As I grew up I forgot almost everything about the shows, except their existence, and when I became a teenager I remembered very little, and searched for the episode where Angel turned into a puppet. By the time I found it, I became hooked.

    I started slow, first by watching S5 of Angel, and waited a little while to watch both series proper. Recently I began collecting Buffy related things. From the DVD's, to T-shirts and necklaces, etc. I've also discovered a few of my co-workers of fans as well. In a funny sort of way, I'm still obsessed with the show like I was as a small child, but not in looking for it, just about it in general. I'm not someone who enjoys watching television or movies that much, but Buffy and Angel are my two favorite shows, and hold a special place in my heart as a part of my life (pardon the sappyness).

    Welcome to the boards! I still find it so odd when people say their parents watched Buffy, and that's how they got into it. Not in bad way, just that it makes me feel so old and decrepit. :D

    The Bronze: Fourthed? We need to draw a line in the sand now though, no one is allowed to say their grandparents were fans.
    HowiMetdaSlayer: 2nd gen fan here too - sorry folks

    Welcome to the boards! This is quite the place - civilized (far more than most fan forums) and intelligent and the nice thing you will find is that as a newcomer, you don't have to defer to anyone - you can post any commentary just as if you had been here for ages.

    @GwenRaiden please, my ex girlfriend's grandparents were huge Buffy fans. As in, they bought the merchandise. As in, they gave their granddaughter their Buffy books to give to me since I was such a fanatic. Buffy and Angel are probably the only shows that I've encountered that cross so many barriers, from age, to gender, to race. That's a testament to how wonderfully written the show is. So welcome to the boards, @nxGangrel. You'll absolutely love it here.
     
    GwenRaiden: But then Joss probably only wanted hot chicks to watch the show. He'd be annoyed that it transcends age. Something to bring up at the intervention, for sure.
