On March 10th, 1997 a little show aired on the WB that would ultimately change Pop Culture as we know it. Yes folks, I’m talking Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
After a tiny bit of insomnia, and a deep tidal wave of nostalgia, I’ve decided to start a rewatch of everyone’s favorite blonde badass to see how it stands the test of time, okay, maybe I just wanted an excuse to rewatch and share thoughts.
Episode: 101 “Welcome to the Hellmouth”
Air Date: March 10th, 1997
Plot: Buffy Summers, a high school sophomore, faces her destiny as a slayer of the undead.

Does it Hold Up:
The first aired episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, provides a brilliant introductions to each of our characters, and while it alludes to events that happened in the 1992 feature film, it very early on establishes that it is its own beast.
To this day, “Welcome to the Hellmouth” is one of the best “pilots” I have ever watched. I put pilots in quotes as although this was the first episode to air, a different, lesser quality pilot was used to sell the show.
