I can understand why some might have a hard time getting into Buffy.
There are only two obstacles to getting into Buffy: Getting over the fact that you're watching a show called Buffy the Vampire Slayer
, and lasting past the cheese of the first season.
Not that the first season is bad
, per se. But the series was still finding its legs and
its voice, and it tended to feel more unpolished that year than later.
Once you're past those two, the show sells itself.
