#50 | Buffy The Vampire Slayer

‘There are you are 15 years of age fancying Davey Jones’

This week on Up To 90, our favourite ginger duo are joined by stylist and Buffy Superfan Martha Gilheaney  to talk about the lady who sold red leather pants as activewear. We talk ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ – a groundbreaking series which broke the mould by having a physically strong and fearless heroine at the helm and explored sexuality, gender roles and complex family dynamics in a show which subverted expectations and paved the way for a new era of teen cult phenomenon.

What was it about this female protagonist that quickly garnered a cult following? What is it about changing the men in our lives that gives us such a thrill? Why is RTE always 3 decades after the fact when it comes to buying rights to TV hit shows? Has Emma admitted to fancying another male? What in the name of all that is nineties is going on? What happened those ginger Eurovision twins and how is Martha inextricably linked to our second favourite ginger duo? Will her boyfriend get his first choice on the CAO form? Why was spin-off show Angel a heap of chocolate pudding? What became of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie bear?
