You may have heard that Beau recently completed the Herculean task of watching every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with me. It was kind of an agreed-upon prerequisite for living with me. I'm very proud of him for not only sticking it out, but also finding much to love about the show.
Beau and I sat down last night to talk Buffy, just one night after he watched "Chosen," the show's final episode, in our bedroom. Here's what he remembers about Buffy:

Will he read the season 8 comic books?
He's thinking about it, even though it's supergeeky.
Beau says he really started liking the show once they went to college in season 4, and that it kept getting better after that.
He also says, "I will be watching the whole series again."
And he also says, "And I love you, Angel."
"And Tara. And Anya."
