136 Thoughts I Had While Watching Buffy for the First Time

Witch (Season 1, Episode 3)

34. Giles just compared Buffy joining the cheer team to her joining a cult. I approve of that analogy.

35. That girl’s cheer routine was definitely not good enough for her to catch on fire, just saying!

36. “We have to achieve our dreams or we wither and die.” Lovely pep talk, Cordelia. She’s such a typical 90s mean girl.

37. I really need to know if Cordelia gets better guys, cause right now she’s really quite terrible.

38. Yes! Xander wants to ask Buffy out! Also, why did he have to call Willow a guy though?

39. This Barbie sacrifice thing is really weird. Not sure how I feel about it.

40. That was almost a Mean Girls “She pushed me in front of the bus” type of moment. Seriously though, what is with Cordelia’s eyes?

41. “She’s our Sabrina” the most 90s reference to another 90s show ever!

42. Is Buffy’s mom the same mom from Beverly Hills 90210? They look alike and they seem like the same person.

43. Buffy is sick! How is she going to stop vampires/ witches/ pass algebra?

44. Buffy just threw that girl’s mom, and wow do you think she works out?

Teacher’s Pet (Season 1, Episode 4)

45. First order of business, Buffy’s mom isn’t from Beverly Hills 90210. She’s from Honey, I shrunk the Kids. Close enough.

46. What is happening??? The ep just started so why is Buffy fighting off vampires in a nightclub?

47. Wait this is definitely a dream. Buffy is super into Xander!

48. Yup. It was a dream. Seriously, when do these two get together? I can’t wait anymore!

49. This lead singer’s metallic shirt and whiney voice are too much to handle. The 90s called, they want you to take it down a notch.

50. New teacher walking in slow-motion is SUCH a teen show move! I’m telling y’all now, she’s a vampire.

51. Also, back to Xander’s fashion choice. He’s wearing a brown velvet zip up. Why???

52. Dr. Gregory’s head was chopped off and he was put in a freezer and still all I’m concerned about is whether or not Buffy and Xander are going to date soon.

53. So this vampire was totally not afraid of Buffy, but was terrified of the substitute teacher? Sounds about right.

54. Also, wow the production value of spooky stuff in the 90s would get a hard C- compared to today’s stuff.

55. XANDER DO NOT GO TO YOUR TEACHER’S HOUSE!

56. And now Xander’s in a cage. Honestly, you brought this on yourself, Xander. Why would you go to your weird teacher’s house?

57. Oh my gosh! Willow just gave the cutest description of Xander! I cannot take the adorableness!

58. What is growing in the school? Can’t this girl get a break? Like, really guys!

Never Kill A Boy On The First Date (Season 1, Episode 5)

59. First of all, A+ ep title!

60. “He’s solitary, mysterious, he can brood for 40 minutes straight!” Literally, done with this show!

61. OK. I get it now!

62. “No, no she doesn’t like fun.” Cordelia you are so Paris Geller it isn’t even funny.

63. Man, the 90s were a really bad time for fashion.

64. Buffy why do you always look like you just bought a four-day pass to Coachella?

65. Literally the three of them are like the older, vampire slaying versions of Gordo, Miranda, and Lizzie.

66. “The thing that I love about Emily Dickinson…” Owen, you’re at a club. Please stop. You’re so cute though, so actually, go ahead keep talking.

67. Cordelia’s hair is crimped! This is not a drill! IT’S CRIMPED!

68. The juice pouches Xander and Willow are holding date this show more than anything else they have done or said so far.

69. OK. Owen is perfect. I love him. Please tell me he sticks around. He’s only here for like two episodes isn’t he?

70. Yup. He’s gone. Buffy just shot him down. I’m fine. I’m fine.

The Pack (Season 1, Episode 6)

71. Why are they at the zoo? This episode just started and I already hear monkeys.

72.  The fence to the hyena exhibit is about two feet tall? Totally normal.

73. Oh good, the hyena possessed the already terrible students.

74. Oh my slayer! There’s a baby pig at Sunnydale!!!

75. They are playing dodgeball and jungle music is playing. It’s a combo I never thought I wanted or needed until right now.

76. XANDER NO! NO! NO! HOW COULD YOU? TO WILLOW? OMG! (I know you’re possessed and all, but still not cool, dude.)

77. “Xander’s been acting totally wiggy ever since we went to the zoo!” Wow, what 90s dialogue.

78. OH HELL NO, XANDER! GET OFF OF HER!!!

79. Casual jail cell in the library, OK.

80. Xander is back to normal, all is well.
