Despite the fact that it's been 20 years since Buffy premiered (WHAT!), the show has the staying power of a vampire that never dies. Those of us who grew up watching the series still cherish it, and today's teens who binge-watch it on Netflix understand why.
Nowhere was this more evident than at a Buffy the Vampire Slayer 2015 Comic-Con panel called "The Buffy Effect," which drew more than 200 people. Various young adult authors discussed the incredible writing and storytelling of the show and why it has a long-lasting cult following. Perhaps one member of the audience said it best: "Nothing lodges in you so powerfully and deeply as things you loved as a teen." Get ready to break down why it's one of the greatest shows ever and then check out the best Buffy GIFs.
