March 10 marks twenty years since television’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered. A groundbreaking show that influenced the current era of “quality television” in too many ways to mention, Buffy was first broadcast on the WB on a Monday night with a double-episode opener, “Welcome to the Hellmouth” and “The Harvest.”
In celebration of the premier’s anniversary, let’s re-watch and live tweet “Welcome to the Hellmouth” and “The Harvest” on March 10, a Friday evening. Anybody can join in – the more the merrier – and spread the word to all your Buffy-loving friends!
I propose starting “Hellmouth” at 9pm (GMT), taking a small break between episodes, and starting “The Harvest” at 10pm.
Friends in North America can join in, too – your start times would be 4 and 5pm for the two episodes. Or you could organize your own live tweet for later in the evening!
Please share with anybody you know, and let’s try to make this a new sort of Slayerfest! After all, what better time to join together and stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness!
