Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 1Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


After moving to Sunnydale, California, Buffy Anne Summers just wants to be a normal teenager. Back in Los Angeles, her first Watcher had died; she inadvertently burned down the school gymnasium at her old high school; and her parents got a divorce. The move to Sunnydale is supposed to give both her and her mother, Joyce, a clean slate. But then she meets the school librarian, Rupert Giles, and quickly learns there is no escaping her destiny.

With Giles as her new Watcher, she reluctantly steps back into her role as the Slayer. But this time she is not fighting alone. She now has an inner circle of special friends - Willow, Xander, Cordelia, and a mysterious young man named Angel - ready to join the fight and drive in a stake or two if need be.

A True Cult Classic

Wow, I'm speechless. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my all time favorite show, and I never expected it to be on iTunes. I'm amazingly happy that I can watch my favorite slayer on my iPod at anytime. What made this show so significant was the heart-felt performances from the cast. Sarah Michelle Geller brilliantly gave Buffy truth, strength and emotion while at the same time tackling story-book like subjects involving demons, witches and haunted puppets. Season 1 was a huge milestone, and is definitely an established highlight of the series' seven year run. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of those shows that will forever remain a cult classic because of the strong devotion and loyalty from fans. No other show has combined humor, struggle, fantasy, horror and reality quite like Buffy did; it's a show that keeps you on your toes at every turn. Most of all, what made Buffy the Vampire Slayer such a phenomenon, was that at the core it was a show about a girl trying to find her place in the world, going through the same relatable human troubles as anyone else. The only difference is that if someone crossed her the wrong way, they'd likely be left with a wooden stake in the heart.

The Greatest Show of All Time

Like the other reviewers I was very surprised to hear Buffy was availible on iTunes. But low and behold here it is. For those of you who have never seen an episode of the series, you are probably saying to yourself, "Buffy? The Vampire Slayer? Sounds cheesy and lame. Its probably some teeny-bopper girl show that anyone with an ounce of intelligence would write off after a single episode." Well, you couldn't be more wrong. I, somewhat reluctantly, started watching this show two years ago, (after the show was off the air, because I had the same reservations as above) and it soon became my favorite show. Unfortunately the first season is a bit weak, and honestly pretty cheesy, but shows some promise with some great characters and well-crafted dialogue. When the show hits its stride in season 2 (and continues to improve over the entire series) no one can deny the brilliance of this superb action/comedy/drama. See for yourself why a show called Buffy has millions of rabid fans and tons of critical praise. Its not hype. Its not unjustified. Its simply the greatest show ever made.

Best. Series. Ever. Period.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer changed television when it was first aired in 1997. For the next seven seasons it pushed the boundries of creative story telling, producing a spin off and a highly devoted fan base. Ask any critic with a half a brain and they'll tell you this show excelled in writing and directing. It's a shame that it's title permitted it from ever winning any Emmy's, but that's the Academy for you. If you've never given this show a chance, take this opportunity and watch. Buffy slays.
