‘Buffy’ Slays 20 Years of Pop Culture History

The Water Cooler Gang flashes back 20 years as Buffy the Vampire Slayer first slays on the small screen. We take a look at five pivotal episodes.

This week at the Water Cooler, we’re celebrating Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s 20th birthday. That’s right, March 10 marked 20 years since Buffy, Angel, Giles, and the rest of the Scooby Gang first hopped onto the small screen. In observance, we’re talking about five episodes from the series through three distinct perspectives. Joey, a life-long fan, selected the episodes and discusses why he chose them and why he loves the series. We then hear what Buffy-agnostic Megan thinks about the series through Joey’s selected episodes. And I’ll weigh in as a devotee of the series in the initial run but lost interest as it progressed.

But before that, we’re kicking things off with our weekly TV Tidbits segment. We discuss the video that’s sweeping the internet… and the racism it unexpectedly elicits. Then, in completely unrelated news, we talk about Amy Schumer’s Netflix comedy special, Clarence previews Netflix’s Iron Fist, and, in a cheat of sorts, we review the hugely successful social satire Get Out.

We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.

Thanks for listening and thank you, in advance, for remembering to rate us on iTunes!
