Other: High school students spend their free time at a teen club, but no alcohol is consumed. In fact, alcohol consumption isn't even mentioned, suggested, or implied throughout the entire season. There is some mention of girls that are smokers, but it is never shown on-screen.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Jump scenes and grotesque monster make-up are used throughout and may scare those that are young and/or particularly sensitive.

Sexual Content: Other than some inoffensive elements of high school romantic relationships and adolescent crushes, the first season is fairly devoid of sexual innuendo. The most daring implications made are verbal in the episode, "The Pack".

Violence: A sixteen-year-old girl is a vampire slayer, and so, she slays vampires, which involves stabbing them with a stake and such, and they then turn to dust. Blood is depicted, but very rarely; even when people are bitten in the neck, there is little to no blood shown.

Coarse Language: Very mild cusses are used sparingly, usually ones that may be considered blasphemous (e.g., "Oh my god!", "What the hell?", etc.).

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is about the life of high school student Buffy Summers. Buffy is the Slayer, a girl born to hunt and kill vampires and demons. However, as one would expect, this highly complicates her life. After burning down the gymnasium at her old school (it was filled with vampires) Buffy and her single mother are forced to move to Sunnydale, a tiny city built on top of a Hellmouth, a direct opening to Hell. Buffy’s life becomes especially difficult after the appearance of a mysterious, vampire-with-a-soul named Angel, as well as an ancient evil vampire known simply as ‘The Master’. Together with her friends, Willow and Xander, and her Watcher and school librarian Rupert Giles, Buffy must put a stop to The Master, and save the day more than once.
“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is an extensive show, spanning seven television seasons in total and then continued in a wide range of comic books. The show also inspired another show, “Angel” which follows the adventures of Angel the vampire. “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is a wonderful show, filled with a brilliant mix of fantasy and realism. This mix allows watchers to believe that the events of the show really happen, and are not the product of Joss Whedon’s imagination. The characters are all interesting and unique, and are all different from one another. The heroes are truly heroic (though a bit bumbling and confused at times), and the villains are truly evil. While the first season of ‘Buffy’ is a little tough to watch at times (got to love that nineties fashion sense), it is still lovable and entertaining.
Overall, the author of this review definitely gives “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” a high recommendation. It is entertaining, clever, funny, and kick-ass all in one go. Everyone will find a Buffy character to relate to, and the issues that are explored in the show are ones that many people face (except for the vampire slaying, of course) sometime during their life. Issues such as addiction, healthy vs unhealthy relationships, sexual orientation and grief are all dealt with during the course of the show. “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is recommended for ages twelve and up due to occasional sexual events and somewhat scary content.

A fun debut to a show that mixes light-hearted teen comedy with creepy horror elements in a monster-of-the-week format. Each episode is a fleeting tale of normal high school events skewed into the evil murky quarters of Hellmouth's "mystical convergence" on which Sunnydale High just happens to be situated. Truly delightful. You fall in love with the characters and stay for each week's resolution to the gang's conflict with demons, ghouls, and, of course, vampires. Grrr! Aargh!

Buffy Summers arrives in Sunnydale after her expulsion from her old high school in L.A. for burning down the gym. Despite trying to escape her duty as a Slayer, she finds herself back behind the stake when she meets what become the Scoobies (her new Watcher, Giles; smart but shy Willow Rosenberg; and, funny and friendly Xander). Together, they fight the many creeps thrown at them, both mystical monsters and standard high school monsters.
