    Hi everyone,

    I'm new here so just wanted to say hello! From my early teens I've been a huge fan of Buffy, Angel and anything Joss. It was all such a big part of my life growing up and especially during my school years. I had all the DVDs, tonnes of books, props and memorabilia and used to enjoy going to UK conventions to meet some of my favourite actors from the show.

    As I got older, life sort of happened... I moved countries to start my career, I met my wonderful boyfriend, we now have a house and a dog! I've never forgotten my love of the series but due to being so busy it had been some years since I'd sat down and watched Buffy. I've always known that my boyfriend had never seen it, and a couple of months ago, we agreed it would be our next series to watch. (We binge watch series!) and needed a new one. Unfortunately all of my Buffy DVDs were still with my Mum back home, but I was so excited so I ordered the box set again and we started.

    Currently we've just started season 3 and boy... I feel like a teenager all over again. Boyfriend is really enjoying watching it and hoping this will lead us to watch Angel, Firefly, Tru Calling and all of my other favourites from my childhood. I was a member of many Buffy forums when I was younger, and it feels so good to join one again. I met some of my good online friends through Buffy forums when I was a teen and it is one of the nicest communities of people I've ever known. So I'm super excited to be here!

    Sorry for the long first post! Can't wait to start reading and posting!

    Welcome to the boards! That's cool your boyfriend is enjoying it (mines hates BtVS/Angel, such a TV snob). Do you have any favourite characters/storylines?

    Thank you! I've always loved Spike. He has and probably always will be my favourite. And I love his relationship with Buffy. I read the Season 8 comics ages ago. But I see now there are so many so I'd love to get back into these again once I'm finished yeah!

    Thank you! Im super excited that he's enjoying it. I think he was a bit sceptical at first, but is always asking when we're watching the next one! Favourite character is Spike. It's really tough to pick favourite storylines because I love so many of them. We've just finished watching Season 2 which I really enjoyed watching again and just starting Season 3 which is one of my favourites. I love having Faith in it again. She is another favourite of mine. When I was 19 I got "Five By Five" tattooed on my wrist as I always loved that she would always be five by five even when she was beaten and hurt and a bit lost. One of my favourite episodes is "The Gift". The music is so powerful in that Episode. It's so emotional.

    Hello and welcome!

    I used to watch some Buffy when I was it was first aired and I loved Spike back then. I was never a fan but last year's reruns we watch the whole at home and we are not huge fans! My husband's a big Faith and Fred fan... You can tell by avatar and signature my faves :D

    Glad to have you here and hope to see you around!:)
