The year 2010 has come and gone. Vampires were the hottest trend and high school misfits were the heroes of television’s top primetime shows. Why not have both with a “Buffy” marathon starting New Year’s Day. Growing up is tough in Sunnydale, California: home to mean girls, shady teachers, and other sinister creatures of darkness. Fortunately it’s also the new home of Buffy Summers; former cheerleader, mediocre student, and a vampire slayer who saves the world… all the time. Nurse your hangover with two days full of supernatural fierceness.
