    Right, bit nervous. Let me start with the basics, my name's HazyGriffin (or Haz is fine) and I'm soooo new to Buffy that I can't even believe it myself I haven't watched it sooner. To discover and to fall in love with Buffy need a little blind luck I guess, since I did not grow up with the fad or with people who actually heard of it.

    So one day I'm super bored over NBC Hannibal finale I clicked on Angel (yep), but I put off watching Buffy until the inevitable crossover (the faith episode I think), because there was a super-funny false impression where I thought this show's just like The Vampire Diaries meets Gossip Girls. (did I mention I'm a millennial? Ooops)

    Right, anyway, then I came through. Saw it, loved it, died for it. Now I hunger for more. There is so much I don't know. I hope this place is patient enough with my not-so-good English (it's not my first lang:() and my greenish. Feel free to ask my anything, or give me suggestions, or just say hi!

    You should read the comics if you hunger for more haha, they are up to season 11 at the moment and Angel has his own comics with Faith as well :)

    Thank you, I’ve noticed there are great chunks of comics too! I have only read After the Fall and some part of Season 8, and I felt a bit of lost? I know the gang raised their horizon and everything through angel s5, but in the comic they are like X-men all of sudden only without Bryan Singer? Maybe I'm just not used to it yet..

    I'd say give it some time. Season 9 & 10 and Angel and Faith are really good! It can be a huge adjustment going from the show to the comics haha

    Oh thanks for the heads-up!:p I am going to read every last bit of it I'm sure! and right now I'm trying hard to accept it's canon, not some parallel universe where spike is a spaceship captain of bugs (oh wait he is..!)

    Hello and welcome to the boards, hope you have fun here :) I love the comics, but S8 is really overblown and takes a while to get used to. It calms down a lot in the later seasons, and S11 has been great so far.

    I wouldn't even bother with the comics. They aren't really the 'same' thing. There is a world of difference between the TV show and the comics' almost like two different universes.

    Hi @HazyGriffin and welcome to the boards. Don't worry about being a late starter to the show, you got here eventually and that's all that matters round here. :)

    Thank you, I will look forward to reading them! :p
    Also I've come across some comics that set in-between the TV verse, would you recommend those as a must-read? :)
    Thanks! I am pumped to do some major lurking now haha
    Aww you guys are so welcoming :p
     
    Mr. Pole: If you know they are not canon and just a "fun" almost fanfiction then sure.. I just don't like where the 'continuing' tales went. At least some of the Tales of the Slayer and what not seemed more grounded.
