Dec 14, 2015, 06:00 PM

Let the Buffy the Vampire Slayer era of ReWatchable begin!

Superfans: Karen, Selina, Natalie, Caitlin
Newbies: Brittany and Kristen

Fun facts:

This episode is pretty much all fun facts as we get psyched up for our Buffy rewatch to begin, but here are a few of the highlights:

-Karen has an app on her phone that tracks her Funkos. Fandom-level: Ultimate.
-Selina wants everyone to know that Denmark is not in any way intimidated by Sweden.
-Natalie watched a Buffy fan fave episode in Hall H at her very first SDCC (and something about a Grr. Argh. finger puppet).
-*Hamilton mention* (No one is surprised.)
-Caitlin is lovely enough to give Selina and Natalie a second to chat about stake whittling.
-Brittany just read an article about six ways to stop a vampire, so she's set for this show. (Also *Hamilton mention #2*)
-Kristen has an obsession with Sven from Frozen. Yes, the reindeer. He's the best.

Jobs: Karen is our overlord, Caitlin tells us when we are doing these things, Brittany is the witty one on social media that you can thank for all the awesome GIFs, Selina and Karen will be the main hosts, Natalie is the features czar and is in charge of organizing all the articles and quizzes, Ariana and Mitch are our doc wizards which will be epic, and Kristen will be editing (with help from those that are very much smarter than her AKA Karen and Brittany).

What we're looking forward to the most:
-The references
-The character growth
-The newbie reactions
-The '90s fashion and awesome special effects
-Final thoughts

Listener feedback
-One listener is back after only skipping Freaks and Geeks (we totally understand).
-Another is ready to give Buffy another shot.
-Welcome to all, both newbies and superfans!
-Some listeners have never been newbies, and at least one of our hosts has never been a superfan.
-The superfans promise to keep all squeeing to a minimum.
