You know, those 30second to 2 minute long clips that run before the show? Choose and list ten of your favorite ones maybe alongside some comments on why you like them :P
Buffy The Vampire Slayer - obviously. its classic, its fiery, it manages to tell you nothing about the show, yet contains so many important moments in its sequencesCaprica - it just...flows so nice. its like a short journey through symbolism, that defines certain characters. A surreal and chilling journey.
Firefly - any opening that has a song written specifically for it is serious win in my books. And one that captures the feel of merged genres of Western and Science Fiction is even better. Only J.Wheddon could do something like this opening.Game Of Thrones - The feeling of grandeur, beautiful soundtrack acompanying what looks like a simple map. the ammount of details and story elements crammed into simplest things in the opening. And the fact that the opening changes with every episode.
Fringe - There's just something unique about the music score of this opening. The opening itself of course is just words. A lot of meaningful words, but everything flows just so nice together and fits the song. And then there's the fact that the show has 4 different opening sequences that alternate depending on just WHERE the episode takes place. Especially love the "flashback"episode opening version and "gray reality" opening version.Battlestar Galactica - For already very depressing show, this opening portrays the cold-hard realism the show has perfectly. Accompanied by haunting singing of budhist mantra, it shows visuals and defines the tone of the show and story of the show.
Airwolf - There's just something awesome in that cheesy catchy tune and badass black helicopter. Airwolf opening sequence is the typical 80's - the awesome part of 80's.Forever Knight - Something fitting a vampire show. Feeling of dread. Nice pun on the show title and blue tint with haunting song.
La Femme Nikita - Yet again displays the atmosphere perfectly. techno-ish soundtrack, desolation, intensity, cynism and naivety.Merlin - There's just something "Grand"in the soundtrack accompanied by very famous moments of arthurian legends. the last few seconds, the end tone grafts itself into your mind.

Katherine was THE BEST character of season2.
The worst character of season2: Elena.
The only parts that are made up by christians are garlic and crosses parts. the main idea and most of the features come from way older mythos.
TVD vampires are pretty much traditional minus christian influences(garlic+holyobjects). They still burn in the sun, suck blood, are predators, immortal, strong, fast, can get killed by stakes, beheading and fire and need to be invited into the houses.
TVD vampires are as close to traditional as tv ever got since buffy finished its airing.
Elena also sometimes thinks with her brain and no matter how boring she is, at least she is not a blank slate for fangirls to insert themselves to :)
Buffy and Angel meet Edward:
That pretty much says it all on how that story of disco ball guy should have ended in the first page.
Sandra! I missed Julie Plec on Kevin Smith’s radio show yesterday. Sad panda! Did she say anything about the new season?
— Tracy Hat tip to Vampire Diaries Online for the heads up about the interview. And as for season 3, I’d say the biggest hint in the rather spoiler-phobic interview was that the writing staff, who yesterday were on day 3 of mapping out the new season, had just added Rebecca Sonnenshine, a horror writer who Plec was particularly excited about because she specialized in “psychological horror.” Her hiring definitely speaks to the direction they’re heading this season, and let me say, I like the sound of it. Speaking of which…
That just confirms to me that they are going Angelus route with Stefan.
I do not expect them to top Angelus/Angel psychotic stuff he pulled off, but that does inspire me on hoping that they won't just whitewash Steffie's little choice in few episodes...
Traditional VampireSleep in Coffins with dirt from their grave\] Onions are poisonous to them and vervaine is said to ward off evil. Die by beheading or wooden stake to the heart Drink blood Fears crosses or objects of faith. Holy Water burns them. Hypnotize people Any killed victim might become like its killer. turns into bats stronger and faster than humans. burns in the sun. Predators.
BTVS Vampires:Onions poisonous to them Fear crosses holy water burns them if victim drinks vampire's blood and dies he will return as vampire. Some can turn into bats. Stronger than humans. Drink blood. Can be killed by staking, beheading or fire. burns in the sun. predators
TVD Vampires:Vervaine is poisonous to them Drinking vampire's blood and dying means you will return as vampire. Faster and stronger than humans Drink blood Can be killed by staking, beheading or fire. Burns in the sun. predators
Tweeelight "vampires":Disco dance in the sun shiny. emo Do not need to drink blood act like a group of 12 year old teens. do not fear crosses, garlic, vervaine.
Conclusion: Tweeelightards are not vampires they have nothing common with vampires and only showcase just how ignorant the "author" of that book is. They have no basis on the "real" mythology, do not act like vampires do.
Don't be surprised - 99% of stuff in angel, btvs crew never heard ot. The shows aired on different channels after all. Not to mention there are millions of things that contradict BtVS plotlines. ANgel is not really connected to BTVS apart from some characters appearing there.
Just him getting resurrected is not the worst part(Since he is built around Book-Damon it was innevitable for him to die and get resurrected, just like it happened to book-Damon). HOW he gets resurrected is the worst part :)
It looked as if since Angel ratings were plummeting with every episode, the creators wanted to bring in Spike's fanbase and looked for ANY Excuse to add him into show, no matter the fact that he did not fit into plot or anything.
Not to mention that in the end the whole show is pointless and is used to set up a would-be storyline for would-be btvs upcomming seasons that never came(it literally ends in cliffhanger that should have been resolved in btvs had it continued).
First season or two are decent(and I still can't stand it because I pretty much do not like Angel's character or forced Buffy mentions), but afterward it all goes downhill even faster. The ONLY good thing in the show is Angel/Cordelia pairing.
