Some more links celebrating the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Joss Whedon’s ground-breaking show had its antecedents and influences and, in turn, has influenced many high quality programmes since; these two links reveal some of the intertextual relationships of Buffy:
‘A slayer’s lineage: 9 pop cultural precursors to Buffy‘
‘A slayer’s legacy: 10 pop cultural follow-ups to Buffy‘.
Zan Romanoff writes on how the show developed in ‘How Season 6 of ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ destroyed the show — and built something better‘.
And the latest issue of the on-line journal devoted to Joss Whedon’s work is a special issue on the anniversary, Slayage 15.1 , Winter / Spring 2017.
