Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 1997-2003. Based on the movie of the same name in 1992.
Premise: a young woman is chosen by fate to fight evil. At the death of her predecessor, Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is the newest “Slayer”. Given a choice, Buffy would rather decline, but, it’s not an option. She receives enhanced strength, abilities, etc to fight off the evil ones. She has a Watcher, Giles, who teaches her what she needs to know to take down the villains de jour. Unlike previous slayers, Buffy has a human support system, the “Scooby Gang”, and when I was reading the synoptic of the show, it seemed demons, vampires and werewolves could switch sides and be friends or enemies. The closest I came to watching the show was catching snippets during breaks on the back room TV. It may have been the spin-off, Angel ... (I did see & enjoy the movie). Oh, and Buffy died twice and came back.


Karn Evil 9, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, 1974

Welcome back, my friends
To the show that never ends
We're so glad you could attend
Come inside! Come inside

There behind a glass
Stands a real blade of grass
Be careful as you pass
Move along! Move along

Come inside, the show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart
Rest assured you'll get your money's worth
The greatest show in Heaven, Hell, or Earth

You've got to see the show, it's a dynamo
You've got to see the show, it's rock and roll

(We’re trying to have a standout here, so if you coul, like, shove off ...)

Right before your eyes
We'll pull laughter from the skies
And he laughs until he cries
Then he dies, then he dies

You've got to see the show, it's a dynamo
You've got to see the show, it's rock and roll

(The Renaissance Year’s)

Soon the Gypsy Queen
In a glaze of Vaseline
Will perform on guillotine
What a scene! What a scene
Next upon the stand
Will you please extend a hand
To Alexander's Ragtime Band
Dixieland, Dixieland

Roll up! Roll up! Roll up
See the show

Performing on a stool
We've a sight to make you drool
Seven virgins and a mule
Keep it cool. Keep it cool
We would like it to be known
The exhibits that were shown
Were exclusively our own
All our own. All our own

Come and see the show
Come and see the show
Come and see the show
See the show
See the show

(But there’s nothing in here about glittering like a fairy)
