Buffy l'ammazzavampiri

Al liceo di Sunnydale, un'amena cittadina californiana, arriva una nuova studentessa: Buffy, una bella sedicenne, si è appena trasferita da Los Angeles portandosi dietro la fama di ragazza problematica, coinvolta in tutta una serie di episodi violenti - ultimo dei quali l'incendio della palestra della scuola - che le sono costati l'espulsione; in realtà la giovane è all'insaputa di tutti una prescelta nella lotta contro il male, l'unica e sola 'cacciatrice' designata a combattere vampiri, demoni e qualunque altra nefandezza venga fuori dalle profondità infernali, e nonostante le sue rosee aspettative troverà anche nell'apparentemente tranquilla Sunnydale pane per i suoi denti. Composta da un totale di 144 episodi raggruppati in sette stagioni andate in onda negli Stati Uniti tra il 1997 e il 2003, la serie ha dato origine ad uno spin-off ('Angel', 1999) ed ispirato fumetti, giochi di ruolo e videogiochi.

Serie ottima / 2 settembre 2015 in Buffy l'ammazzavampiri

Una gran serie che per vari motivi, tra cui forse quello di averla vista da piccolo e che mi ha accompagnato fino ad ora, rimane una delle mie preferite.

non male / 20 luglio 2015 in Buffy l'ammazzavampiri

buon telefilm per passare un pò di tempo davanti alla televisione

Semplicemente BUFFY!!! / 16 maggio 2015 in Buffy l'ammazzavampiri

Come non poter scrivere nulla sulla mia serie preferita!? Fantastica dalla prima all'ultima puntata, un pò in calo nella terza stagione (ma questo è un mio parere) e cmq si è ampiamente ripresa con le stagioni successive, molto più Spike che Buffy nella settima... ma in fondo a chi non piace Spike!? Poi personaggi in continua crescita ed evoluzione...... continua a leggere »

Buffy / 9 novembre 2014 in Buffy l'ammazzavampiri

Dieci e Lode. Perché sì. E' la serie tv con cui sono cresciuta, la prima alla quale mi sia veramente appassionata. Resta la mia preferita nonostante sia terminata da anni. Mi ha emozionata, mi ha fatta arrabbiare, mi ha commossa e mi ha coinvolta dal primo episodio fino all'ultimo (la settima serie, per me, non è all'altezza delle altre, ma vabbé).... continua a leggere »
