Buffy the Vampire Slayer ... please send a psychiatrist

Earlier in August I blogged that I would be watching every episode of every season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer all in a row. This was part of the moral support I was offering my wife Jackie who is watching all the episodes as part of an effort to write a smartish academic type paper about the show.

So my TV watching the last 2 weeks has consisted almost exclusively of Buffy, pausing only now and then to catch some news or a bit of football. (Go Gators!)

And I think I'm going a bit crazy. I'm starting to think of the characters as people I know. My dreams are lousy with Buffy, Spike, Xander and Willow.

Today I'm going to watch some golf on TV which I hope will act as mental sorbet.

Listen to me, you can't do more than two or three episodes a day, I hope you realize that. Your brain just can't handle that kind of exposure to Buffyverse. My husband and I found that out when we tried to do a Buffy marathon one Christmas day-our vision blurred, our brains actually started to hurt.

Have you started watching Angel yet?

After digesting the entire Buffyverse in such a manner, I think I'm going to need a good, long rest before I try Angel.
