All seven seasons of Joss Whedon’s iconic monster-slaying series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer are now streaming on Stan. It’s the first time Buffy has been available for streaming in Australia, but now that’s finally here, it’s time to celebrate seven years of good, old-fashioned monster slaying.
Buffy began 22 years ago, launching a pop culture phenomenon that still continues today, albeit in comic form. Throughout seven seasons, Buffy‘s audience watched Buffy and the Scooby Gang grow and mature as they faced down vampires, ghosts, ghouls and everything in between. But it wasn’t just monsters that Buffy and her friends faced — the show was never afraid to explore deeper issues like sex, dating and the politics of power.
Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Buffy became a symbol for teen girls everywhere, as she championed the power of women and femininity on modern TV. It’s since inspired so many genre hits, including The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and even Lost. The impact that Buffy the Vampire Slayer had on television is almost immeasurable, and it’s fantastic to see that it’s finally available to stream across Australia.
If you’ve never experienced the show for yourself, it’s well worth checking out this time around. Long live the Scooby Gang.
