Buffy Or Supernatural: Which Show Is This Monster From?
In many ways, Supernatural is the Buffy the Vampire Slayer of this generation. While it lacks the feminism at the heart of Joss Whedon’s magnum opus, it is the show’s most worthy successor for so many reasons. Aside from the obvious – that both series revolve around demon fighting – there is the fact that each show started out with a Monster of the Week format, but with every subsequent season continued to build upon a rich mythology, leading to a more serialized story overall. Both series cleverly use all manner of monsters as metaphor for life’s many trials and, despite being genre shows, are incredibly character driven. They also seamlessly blend humor and drama, and keep the relationships between characters firmly in the forefront.
Let’s also not forget about the abundance of creatures to come out of both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural. Some were quite nightmare inducing, while others were somewhat baffling in their ridiculousness. Both series had memorable Big Bads, with BtVS literally coining the phrase. Whether drawing on urban legends or personal demons, these two shows have given us some unforgettably monstrous experiences. Do you think you’ve got the necessary skills to differentiate between the two? It’s time to take this quiz and find out!
