'Esmerelda the Demon Killing Girl' A post at the Watcher's Diary, part of the BuffyGuide.com forums. The title is the answer to the question "What program is shown on the WB on Tuesdays in Sunnydale?" What follows is a list of all 144 episodes of 'EtDKG.'

I wasn't sure how appropriate this was for posting here, but I figure I've seen much stranger/more obscure things posted, and this is too good not to share.
Has episode titles for the the spin-off show, 'Cherub,' as well.

I stopped reading after the first sentance, someone who goes on about the "cancellation" of buffy obviously knows jack about it.
Someone has way too much time on their hands.
It's an adorable premise, and since bad things always happen to Buffy and her friends on Tuesdays at that time it makes perfect sense they'd never tune in and happen to see the similarities between this fictional reality and their own.. fictional reality.. However, I prefer to believe that Tuesday evenings the WB treats the BuffyVerse with a television show about various groups of people throughout the world which are brought together on the Internet because of a silly tv show. And Buffy and her friends don't know about it because seriously the series is incredibly boring and no one tunes in.

So, in "Ez" this Ezmerelda chick's love is a demon named Cherub who leaves her for Los Angeles. And her best friend is compared to Jimmy Olsen instead of Zeppo but we don't know his name. Is the Willow Rosenberg counterpart in Ezmerelda's world jewish? Or pagan? Or gay? Is she named after a tree?

Maybe there are some things about the BuffyVerse best left undefined.
I thought it was funny.
Presumably Joss Whedon was killed by some vampires in LA and Ez is created by someone far less talented. That would explain why Buffy & Co. never heard it referenced in pop culture.

I keep waiting for the episode where a wish or spell transports the gang to our universe, and they run into the actors who play them.

OTOH, I think the reality in Sunnydale is that w/o Buffy, the WB never took off as a network and they just show sports shows or something.
You're reminding me of an "Eerie, Indiana" episode.
"I keep waiting for the episode where a wish or spell transports the gang to our universe, and they run into the actors who play them."

I've read some good fanfic where that happened. :0

"...I think the reality in Sunnydale is that w/o Buffy, the WB never took off as a network..."

mmm, yeah, that's a good point. Unless they still had Dawson's Creek.
"I keep waiting for the episode where a wish or spell transports the gang to our universe, and they run into the actors who play them."

I wrote what that episode would be like. Called it House Of Mirrors or some such nonsense. Xander and Nicholas switched places. Not necessarily a good idea. Seriously, it was a lot of fun to write and hopefully fun for somebody to read.
Hey, some of those were pretty dang funny!
and that's when you know you've read too much Whedonesque.
