I didn't get Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the longest time. What I mean is, it was on in my town, but I didn't understand it. I stayed away for a long time remembering the movie too much I guess, then finally for some reason watched an episode, picked up on the irreverant humor and I was hooked. I then got into Angel which I personally liked a little bit better, but that might've been because I was on that show from the get-go. I haven't picked up any of the comics though, but I do like the Alice-inspired cover below.
