I started watching Buffy aged 32 when I was on Mat Leave. Was a good distraction.

Buffy is one of the best things ever on TV. I re-watched them all last year in my 40s - can't wait to let DS watch it too :-)

InNeedOfBrandyButter Thu 27-Dec-12 18:16:31

Aww she's jut met angel for the first time! grin

Ooh I loved Buffy! I was thinking of introducing ds1 to Buffy, he is 8 is that too young? He loves Doctor Who.

I wasn't even a teenager when it first started and I originally watched it (late 20's iirc) so definitely watch and enjoy grin

I first watched Buffy at age 30. I'm now 42, have owned the seven season box set since it was released on DVD, and am currently at the end of season one for the eighth time! I unashamedly enjoy it, laugh at it, cry at it and think the writing is incredibly good, and rave about it to those who haven't watched it, most of whom clearly think I'm bonkers. I really don't care. It's ace. Watch every episode with a clear conscience OP and enjoy it!

We watched them all from love film last year. It was great!

Wommer Thu 27-Dec-12 18:19:54

Awwww this takes me back! Loved this as a wannabe alternative (obv very cool in a moody wears too much black sort of way) teenager grin
I was defo emo before emo was invented!

Stupid Netflix doesn't have it sad

I own it from loving it as a 20-something. I've been trying to convince my DD to watch it for months as I know she loves Dr Who. She watched Bones when bored one evening, read that David Borneaz was in Buffy and wanted to watch it finally as a result. She thinks it is fab and I keep going around saying "I told you so!"

As far as an 8 year old..... a lot of Buffys are rated 15 so I'm unsure about that one.

Get a free love film trial and have a buffy marathon wommer!

PearlyWhites Thu 27-Dec-12 18:22:38

Gosh no I love buffs

PearlyWhites Thu 27-Dec-12 18:23:04

Buffy stupid auto correct

TandB Thu 27-Dec-12 18:23:10

Do it! I watched Buffy for the first time in my mid-20s. I finally finished the last series when I was in my 30s.

I might watch it again now!

TandB Thu 27-Dec-12 18:23:32

Not that it is to ogle Spike or anything, oh no, not me!

InNeedOfBrandyButter Thu 27-Dec-12 18:25:18

Oo I forgot about spike ahhhh mmmm

TandB Thu 27-Dec-12 18:26:07

In his coat.

Binkybix Thu 27-Dec-12 18:26:17

I've just started watching Angel for the first time - never to old!!

JesusInTheCabbageVan Thu 27-Dec-12 18:28:00

Buffy's brilliant! Have to laugh thouh at the sheer number of times both Spike and Angel get chained up naked grin Evidently teenage girls are a bit kinkier than we give them credit for.

InNeedOfBrandyButter Thu 27-Dec-12 18:29:49

I've never watched angel, will start after all of buffy!

TandB Thu 27-Dec-12 18:31:08

Angel's a bit darker.

But Spike is in it. In his coat.

InNeedOfBrandyButter Thu 27-Dec-12 18:35:11

I can't believe it started in 97! Fuck I feel old and I'm only 24shock

Tee2072 Thu 27-Dec-12 18:37:36

If it wasn't for Buffy I wouldn't live in the UK or be married or have a son.

soontobeburns Thu 27-Dec-12 18:43:41

I never watched it first time around as I was too young (only 7 when it started) I am debating about getting the dvds as it seems like I would love it.

I thinly I might now lol thanks op and no you are never too old.
