This is an un-official “Why the 90’s Ruled or Not”.

Remember those days when Discovery Kids (Latin America) was actually for kids – you know, 10-13 year old kids – and not babies~~ I mean, COME ON! Teletubbies??? Shoot me in the face already!!

Back in the day, when I was a 10 year old kid… my family first got cable. If I recall correctly, Discovery Kids Latin America used to be in channel 65 or 85 or something, and it had awesome programming for intellectual kids like me~~ Truth be told, most my younger cousins didn’t watch Discovery Kids ever, but I did… and I’m an avid TV watcher since I was a kid. That’s my market~

What did I used to watch on Discovery Kids? Well, I had my first introduction to the Internet thanks to them! Cyberkids was one of the programs I used to watch, and probably shaped me in the way that I am today… you know? Blogger, Web Designer, Web Surfer~~~

Oh man… I just watched an episode of The X-Files, spanish-dubbed… it took me back! LOL’ It’s the dubbed I grew up watching… not that I was an avid X-File viewer, but I did from time to time. I still remember the episode where there was a ‘chupacabra’ – CHUPACABRA!!! I love how they say it in English, SO PHUNNY. xD ~you know, like that episode on Charmed where Piper says it~ Anyway!

Moving on… today, on channel Space, they were showing an episode with the guy who played Dr. Romano on ER… he was some cancer-man, and needed cancer to survive. He had gotten his head chopped off from a car accident at the beginning of the ep, and grew it back up! xD – Also featuring on that episode, there was the actress I’ve seen on an episode of Shirley Holmes… HA! If I recall correctly she was ‘Barbie’ with a B, or something like that… xD Season 3, episode The Case of the Real Fake. LOL’

Anyway, the episode was kinda creepy still… all kinda bad effects and all. Aww… I miss TV like that. xD – You know, TV with old school effects, makeup… I think I deserve a dose of good ol’ The Storyteller, with Jim Henson~ NE?

Buffy - Chose One CollectionI always thought Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a popular show, but apparently is not very cool to say you like Buffy. But I disagree. I respect people who have watched the show and don’t particularly like it, but the most uncool of the uncool people are the ones who think are TOO COOL to watch or like a show like Buffy.

I’m one of those people who grew up watching Buffy… something that my writing teacher thought was nifty. The fact is that I was like 11 when I remember watching an episode of Buffy… and I have been a fan ever since. Am now 22, so have been a Buffy (and Whedon fan) for half my life. Le GASP!

I’ve seen the episodes so many times, that even my mom (who despises Fantasy and Sci-Fi) has seen repeat episodes of Buffy. Once, while watching a re-run on Canal Fox, my mom told me “Haven’t you watched this episode before? I know I have seen it at least 3 times… so by now you must know all the lines.”

The fact is that growing up watching Buffy shaped who I am today (I am most certainly sure about that). Being an impressionable 11-year-old with a knack for martial arts (am a fan of Bruce Lee), I thought Buffy kicked major ASS.

So it was so easy for me to watch Buffy… with a combination of ass-kicking, supernatural, and teenager-ness that gave a great transition of viewing habits between my pre-teen and teen years. It does help a lot as a young adult to know that Buffy was metaphorical (but you don’t really know what a metaphor means when you’re 12… do you?). So for those of you who don’t know… What the EFF is Buffy about?
