What Would Buffy Do?

Angel went off the air last night, ending new TV installments to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe. But the series will live on in unending products and as a pop culture phenomenon.

Some time ago I pondered my Buffy addiction, and it seems I’m not the only one. The book, What Would Buffy Do?: The Vampire Slayer as Spiritual Guide came out last month. Books & Culture/Christianity Today covered it, including an interview with the author and a discussion of the book.

There’s definitely a lot in the shows to tackle. I particularly like James Marsters’ (who plays Spike) comments about the end of Angel: “Being a hero doesn’t mean you succeed in saving the day. It just means you tried.” The quote is that much better having caught the last ten minutes of Angel last night.
