Buffy? come on! A cheerleader?
Former cheerleader. And that was
kinda the whole point of the premise.....tiny blonde cheerleader goes into dark alley, kicks monster ass. Joss Whedon has made a career out of taking the expected and doing the exact opposite.
Oh, you're right about that. and crouteru
is correct about the originality of the storyline - you gotta give him that. I saw the movie way back when and like it. But, as an ongoing storyline... I didn't even see the series until I'd seen Angel on reruns up through season 2. Then got pregnant and had to stay in bed for a month. That's when I borrowed the series from my sister-in-law.
However, as an ongoing storyline, Angel wins out. (minus the last two seasons, of course)
