It’s time to meet our first non-vampire threat in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Are you prepared? Well, grab your pom-poms and let’s go.
We pick up this episode where "Welcome to the Hellmouth" left off, with Luke’s gaping jaws. But — oh no! — he’s burned by the cross that Angel gave Buffy, giving our heroine the chance to escape. This makes Angel’s rather redundant appearance in the previous episode a little more relevance, but he still doesn’t have a great deal to do in this two-parter.
We begin "Teacher's Pet" with Xander daydreaming. Pretty much most of what you need to know about the main theme of the episode is set up right from the start. Xander is striving for a traditional, patriarchal masculinity. He wants to save the damsel in distress—here, it's Buffy—and pull off an awesome guitar solo as well.
The first ever episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer opens on a shot of Sunnydale High School. This place is pivotal to the first three seasons of the show. In the world of Buffy, high school is not just hellish, it is literally built on a Hellmouth.

Serial killer films: they are interesting, action-packed, and leave you guessing (usually) until the very end. Some are intended to make you laugh, others to give you nightmares. In this article, however, I have chosen two of the most famous fictional serial killers to discuss: Hannibal Lecter and Norman Bates. Why? Because their Netflix series' Hannibal and Bates Motel are amazing precursors to the movies that were released so many years prior.
The Frankenstein Chronicles is a television series first aired on ITV Encore in the United Kingdom in 2015. It is said to be a re-imagining of the 1818 novel, Frankenstein, written by author Mary Shelley. In 1827 London, lead role, Detective Inspector John Marlott (Sean Bean), follows on as a river police officer, uncovering a deceased body stitched up with various body parts and sets about to find the person(s) responsible for such a heinous crime; in his tracks he uncovers leads that appear much more terrifying.
Hello again, Boils and Ghouls. As of writing this review, it is in the month of May and of course, Christmas is still a long time away. Although with this fiendishly festive episode, you don't have to wait for Jack Frost to nip at your nose, or Jolly Ol' Saint Nick to come to town, but in this case, this Saint Nick is anything but Jolly.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Finale:
Ever since Negan busted onto the scene by busting two fan-favorite heads on The Walking Dead, it seems there's been non-stop talk of falling ratings, never watching the show again, and #AMC needing to cancel it altogether. While those all are either true or could certainly come true soon, I'm here to offer one solution I think could help the show out tremendously.
American Horror Story is all about pushing boundaries and making its audience uncomfortable. This counts for the shows visuals and storylines as much as its themes. It's no surprise, then, that best sex scenes from AHS get us hot, skeeze us out, and make us think—sometimes all at once!
