The Best of Buffy

First let me just say how much Evite annoys me. I keep begging Kevin to get Google on to making G-Vite or some such, but no such luck yet. Turns out there were a lot of folks intended to be invited that were left off. I hate that.

But on the flip side, I'm not sure we could've accomodated many more. It's a small house and we ran out of places for butts. But there we were, me and a pile of friends, crowded around the glow of the projector, basking in Buffy. It was great. I had folks vote, so the final list isn't what I would've picked as the best of Buffy, but it was the Best of Buffy by silent committee. All of the input was made, and then I made the command decision on it in the end. The final menu of items was 11 episodes long, culminating in a sing-along of Once More, With Feeling. We started at 1:30 and ended at just midnight. There was Wheetabix and cheese slices and skeezy cheese for the eating, plus a turkey and mashed potatoes and salad and well, heck, more food than any twenty people should eat in a day, but we did it nonetheless.

After it was all said and done, I asked if anyone wanted a bonus episode, and a half dozen die-hards voted for Chosen, the final Buffy episode. I enjoy some shows on tv nowadays, but I really miss having a weekly dose (or two!) from the Whedonverse. The one thing that became clear was that even after watching a dozen episodes, there were still so many we hadn't gotten to see that we could all stand to watch a dozen more (though not in one sitting).

And another thing - there definitely has to be another home-brew sing-along night. That was too much fun. Not sure what should come next, but I'm thinking that a Rocky Horror Picture Show Veterans Night might be fun. I've still got my Columbia bustier somewhere in the costume trunk...

  • Once more with feeling? How about once more with feeling the Lament That We Live Too Fucking Far Away.

  • Sounded like fun. Let me know if you ever do a Firefly one. :)

    As far as TV shows go, I'm liking Numbers (Ch.5) and the reruns of Stargate (CH.2 I think...),
