Episode Twelve: What Should I Watch Next?

It’s #WhedonverseWednesday! This week, I’m flying solo, but never fear, as I’m here with a whole of lot suggestions for you. In researching this podcast, I am forever finding people talking about how much they miss shows like Buffy and Firefly and that they don’t know what to watch that might fill that void.

This week, I have a whole heap of recommendations from you, including shows with similar themes, Joss’s own influences and where you can you find the main cast if you’re missing them. I’ve deliberately missed off the obvious choices of vampire TV like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries and teen vampire flicks like Lost Boys, as I figure that goes without saying.

where can i watch the suggested shows?
