There is an episode, a quote for every situation. I would have never survived having a chronic illness and constant hospitalizations. After a bad day, or before a rough one after a bad night, I just watch an episode (usually turns in to several episodes or seasons...); whether I have an episode in mind or just select randomly it always helps and gives me the strength and the change of point of view I need. Always remember: WWBD.

Beneath the fighting, and action, Buffy is so much more. It has a lesson for any problem you are facing. Even after 20 years, it's still one of the most relatable shows I've ever come across. This show will never disappoint.

Coming of age story of a girl who literally must fight the forces of evil every day to save the world but thanks to her witty gang of misfits (the Scooby gang) she isn't alone. Buffy has been bringing hope, humor, and enjoyment to its audiences for years. You're never too old to watch this show. Buffy will remain in our hearts and on our screens forever.
