Season 1 Overview

Hey kids! Season 1 of Buffy is over, and what did we learn?

Buffy has a sacred calling™ to kill vampires.
Buffy cannot be a normal teenager.
Giles Watches Buffy.
Willow is nerdy, and Xander is awful. They research.
Angel is a dreamy vampire. He and Buffy have a forbidden love.
Cordelia is popular. Her jokes are witty and acerbic.
Sunnydale is on the Hellmouth, which is apparently both a location and a monster. I think.
Joyce doesn't know that her daughter is the slayer and thinks that vampires are actually PCP gangs.
Principal Snyder is a big cuddly teddy bear. He was not eaten by students like the last principal. (The kids ate their principal.)

If you haven't read through my ridiculously long episode-by-episode synopsis of season 1, this information should be enough for you to understand my ridiculously long episode-by-episode snyposis of season 2. Get excited.

1. Angel
2. The Pack
3. Witch
4. Prophecy Girl
