    I know I’m going to catch flack for this but am I the only one on this forum that does not like Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

    Just so you all know. I don't feel it should be taken off the air or that people who watch it are stupid or anything like that. If it entertains you, more power to you. I’m sure there are things that entertain me that other people could care less about. I just want to know if I'm alone in the fact that the show does not hold any entertaining value for me?

    Count me in. An absolutely dire show. Not interested in the least. I watched the first few episodes, switched over and never looked back. [​IMG]

    I'm not into it, either.

    Saw one episode - season one, I guess. It failed to hold my interest so I've never seen another.

    If she was all "skanked" out or something it would be better. The show is SOOO boring. [​IMG]

    I actually saw the original film years ago, and then was amused when I found out about the TV series. Then, I saw the series and wasn't impressed.

    After a few seasons, a friend and I rented the original film (which she had never seen) and we watched it. I actually found myself liking it more than the TV show, while she was repulsed.

    Anyway, count me in.

    I worked at a theater when the movie came out, and found it forgettable. When I heard the TV show was actually good, I tried to watch it, but since it had an onscreen network logo I turned it off!

    Well, I'm not a fan of the show, but then I've never really watched it beyond bits and pieces now and then.
    I don't really watch much TV at all. What's the point when there's great movies just sitting there in my living room ready to be watched? [​IMG]

    You're not alone, Allan. I think I never watched a complete episode. I've never been a fan of Sarah Michelle Gellar, so maybe that's why. I do like the movie with Kristy Swanson though, the real Buffy Summers! [​IMG]

    I've never seen an episode and I have no desire to do so, mainly because I don't watch TV (Well, I do watch The Simpsons). TV is just too boring.

    Ditto what Travis said. Over the past six years or so I haven't faithfully watched anything on TV. The only new shows that I've seen are The Sopranos and the Powerpuff Girls:b on DVD. I don't even have cable anymore, 2.5 channels via rabbit ears is more than enough for me.

    I like Buffy but could see how others wouldn't. It's a hard show to get into if you just catch a random episode. I initially dismissed it and only started watching when the first season came out on DVD. It's sort of like The X-Files in that it developed a rather intricate storyline that would mostly be meaningless if you didn't know what came before.

    I've never seen an episode, maybe a couple of minutes here and there, but I usually switch over to something else, I've nothing against Buffy, or its many fans, and I can't hate something I've never seen.
    Not to be sexist or anything but my mind can't quite grasp the concept of a teenage? girl beating the crap out of supernatural vampires and what have you every single episode, I look at my Sandra and I know if I gave her a good swat she'll go flying across the room, so give me starships and aliens with funny foreheads instead and I'm happy.[​IMG]

    Count me in as another with apathy towards Buffy. I saw a couple episodes early on and gave up soon after.

    I hate Buffy, I don't even like Sarah Michelle, looks anorexic these days anyway. You know who I DO like, Kelly Kapowski from Saved By The Bell Old Class, I'd nail that like nobody's business.

    Not a fan. Haven't watched minute one of the show, but don't care too, either.

    I love the movie(Kristy Swanson is so damn gorgeous!), but I hate the show.
