Obsessed

I found myself watching Jessica Jones again tonight after a binge that resulted in me stopping on episode 10 and not wanting to move forward for a few months.  I’m not sure it’s right or fair that I sometimes compare the newer shows in the fantasy/horror genres I see to Buffy, but I do.  By doing this am I robbing myself of some greater enjoyment? Is the enjoyment I do feel muted somehow because of this? Are these always apples to oranges comparisons that I need to stop making? I still find Buffy by and large to be more compelling, more engaging – deeper.Buffy has a unique and powerful hold on me. I’m currently reading a book called “Why Buffy Matters” by Rhonda Wilcox, an English professor at Gordon State College.  I’m hoping that through this book and others like it, through this blog and the discussions I have with others that I will better understand why I am so obsessed with this show.  Oddly enough I don’t make this comparison with GOT.
