Buffy Moment

It is one of the best episodes of the second season and he is watching it for the first time. I try hard not to inform him in any way about the surprises coming (he is kinda spoiled about the series in general so for him to not know what is coming is different).

Chewy is upstairs putting Willow to bed, and I had to start the episode without him, because we don't want Michael up too late (it is a school night afterall).

But, I make sure to get him to come down before the climax of the episode. And we all watch intently. We watch Michael figure out what is going on and gasp.

And we enjoy watching something special and dramatic with him. It is so nice that he is old enough to really enjoy this with us. It reminds me why we love watching movies with him, to watch him enjoy something for the first time.

And he goes to bed only a few minutes past his normal bedtime.

I love this Buffy marathon.

Ahhhh - gotta love Buffy. The Mortal Instruments series (books) by Cassandra Clare is really good and it has a lot of Buffy elements - action, funny dialogue, vampires, etc... For grown-ups, though, maybe not Michael quite yet.

I think its so cool that you are sharing the series with Michael.
