Coming Soon!

Nikki Stafford, she of many a TV guide (but not, you understand, TV Guide), has both risen to the challenge and thrown down a gauntlet. Hard to do both, but she's Canadian. And tricksy.

Nikki is probably best known as the writer of the immensely detailed and popular Lost guides, but she's also a Whedonian at heart, having written one of the first guides to give Buffy the Vampire Slayer more than a passing glance. Starting in 2011, she's devoting her blog - you can see it by clicking the link here - to a Buffy re-watch every Tuesday. (Makes sense - throughout the seven-year run of the show, Tuesday was always "Buffy night.") The show is a whopping 144 episodes in length, so Nikki's drafted help. A number of pop culture scholars, enthusiasts, Whedon scholars, podcasters and various other strays are going to be chiming in throughout the year-long run of the re-watch.

Should be interesting and I've staked out (yuk, yuk) my week.

You'll have to tune in to see what I have to say and decide if it's worth the electronic ink it takes to make it appear on the page!

By the way, the picture is from the Season Four Thanksgiving episode "Pangs." Gobble, gobble to you all and may you enjoy your ritual sacrifice. With pie.
