'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' aired 18 years ago today on The WB. The episode was directed by Charles Martin Smith who played Agent Wallace in The Untouchables.

I miss the old hellmouth.
This will always be my favourite TV show of all time. I've been meaning to re-watch as it's been over 2 years since I watched it in it's entirety, so I guess i'll start tonight, it seems like the perfect time, right?
Not really worth a front page, but even The Metro celebrated the anniversary.

I've been doing a rewatch over on LJ (yes, it still exists) and even S1 stands up remarkably well. Except, perhaps, some of the clothes.
Does anyone have a link to the original slayer recap sting that used to air before the episodes?
Here's the Giles one from early season 2 for your nostalgia fix:

And if you're feeling really, really nostalgic here's the godawful narrator version from Season 1:

Thanks :)

I'm sure there was another one too which aired with the very first few too!
I miss Principal "All the kids here are free to call me Bob. But they don't." Flutie.
But I'm sure he's in a better place now, as recycled hyena chow.
More importantly, Charles Martin Smith was Terry "The Toad" in "American Graffiti".

Did you mean this history of the slayer promo that aired right before the series premiere?
