lounge critic: looks like a job for buffy

Why do we love Buffy? Join Dr Sue Turnbull, Senior Lecturer LaTrobe University as she discusses what moves and motivates our involvement in the Buffyverse.

Is it the spectacle of a petite blonde kicking serious monster butt? Is it the doomed characters we have grown to worry about? Is it the sex? Is it the intricate narratives, which reward the close attention of the loyal fan? Is it the dialogue? Is it the fact that Buffy is a complex TV text with cultural references to everything from the gothic novel to Harry Potter?  Is it the fashion?

Questions will be asked. Some will be answered.

Looks Like a Job for Buffy is part of ACMI's Lounge Critic - Program for the Couch Theorist, an ongoing monthly program aimed to enhance the television experience of the dedicated couch potato. The program is designed to be informative and provocative, spicing up our television viewing with a splash of critical context and social analysis.
