The remnants of humanity work to survive in a ruined world.

Gritty and good. It's got a lot of bullshit in it though, so you really have to turn your brain off.

I had someone point out this was supposed to have comedy, but it's so thin I had no idea.

In a little town in the little country of Island, ashen-covered people begin appearing.

Pretty cool.

I don't know if there will be more; I'll check back in, in a couple of years.

A kickass preacher is infected with a power, and for some reason there's a vampire.

Maybe it has potential, but it's scatterbrained and kept sliding into slow moody boringness.

Evil returns to find Ash.

Playful. It is clearly capitalizing on the success of the franchise, but it's not really interesting to me, as though it's stretching out the story ideas. It's okay, though not especially recommended. I watched a bit of it, but I'd rather do other things with my life.

Firefly (2002) cast

A space-western with a motley down-and-out crew struggling on the edge of a semi-dystopian planet-spanning civilization.

Easily one of the best television shows I've ever seen. I don't just consider this mandatory, I will dog people to watch it. I bought two copies of this series just to give one away.

Let me stress this. This is a series so good that even after cancellation there was enough popularity to produce a movie. A movie for a cancelled series. The only one I've ever heard of. Serenity - (2005 movie) is itself mandatory viewing for those who have enjoyed Firefly.

Mandatory viewing. I have been brought to tears more than once.

I'll add notes when I re-watch this series.
Do not watch this without respecting the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel viewing order.

Angel - (1999 show) image

A vampire, cursed with a soul to be immortally haunted by his past, hopes for absolution by fighting the damned.

An astonishing series. The characters and story are outstanding. While built upon/within the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe, it has a different and significantly more adult story line. I would say that this series is better than its parent, but Buffy is mandatory and still enjoyable viewing to get to this one.

Mandatory viewing.

I'd need to re-watch this to add proper notes.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - (1997 show) image

Entertainment > Television >

A highschool cheerleader, learning she is imbued with the spirit of the Vampire Slayer and her school was built on a Hellmouth, is trained by an ancient order of Watchers to fight vampires and other monsters from ending the world.

An astonishing series, and I don't say that lightly. The characters and story are outstanding. While this is a fast-and-loose show, it matures. It spinoff/partner series, Angel - (1999 show) is even more adult. This show is well worth the time, even if its initial episodes put the viewer off with its childishness. It's not a series that "grows on you", it really does get better and better, building upon and maturing out of its initial impressions.

Mandatory viewing.
