Buffy The Vampire Slayer
a: Buffy the vampire slayer ~
b: Scooby Doo
What: I've been watching this show on DVD for the past couple weeks. The first season was pretty good. In the middle of one of the Vampire murders, it struck me. This show has the same theme as Scooby Doo. That is, goofiness in the face of fear. The show is 1 part morality tale and 1 part slasher/horror movie. A more powerful message has never come from a cartoon or a TV show. There is a even a Wikipage about the thematic continuity between the 2 shows. It's nice to learn that many viewers have had the same insight.
