    It's a show where you have to give it a try and actually watch it through. Once you get to know the characters its extremely funny. Dont write it off just based on a few youtube videos, theres a reason why its going strong and on its 7th season.

    Woah woah woah.

    Woah. Hang on.

    I see absolutely no Joss Whedon stuff in there.
    Jesus.

    Here, watch these before ANYTHING ELSE:
    Buffy
    Angel
    Firefly
    Dollhouse

    The latter two were cancelled prematurely. The injustice of Firefly's cancellation hurts me almost as much as that of Arrested Development.

    Vampires have nothing to do with why I love that show. It's all about the writing and the acting. Joss Whedon makes you absolutely fall in love with all his characters. Then he tends to kill them off.

    Also, Buffy remains, in my opinion, one of the few shows that can go from hilarious to incredibly moving in about a minute.

    Firefly and Angel are both on that list too.
