Welcome to I Missed It, the podcast where we watch a show or film that one of us wanted to watch again and the other one missed. We also take a hard look at whether or not the show would be made in today's culture and how different it would have to be.
Join us first for one of Brittany's favorites, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

We watch the best episode of season 1, and find out the backstory of the most interesting character on the show. Angel.
We talk about how the Angel reveal would be handled today, how the vampire lore of the Buffyverse stacks up to others in the fantasy genre, and Brittany drops in a couple of HOT takes.
The writing in this Buffy episode uses the terms 'Gypsy' and 'Romani' interchangeably. In order to accurately talk about this TV show from 1997, we do the same.
