As long as there have been vampires, there has been the Slayer. One girl in all the world, to find them where they gather and to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers... Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Carnival of Souls: There is definitely something not quite right about the Travelling Carnival. When a once-shy pair of homely twins begin to parade around Sunnydale High like divas, Buffy and the others decide to investigate. But soon it becomes apparent that the price of admission is higher than they imagined. Willow is consumed by envy, Cordelia by greed, and Xander by gluttony. Angel reveals a dangerous new persona, while dark anger rises in Giles. More powerful still is the blinding pride that threatens to overwhelm Buffy and destroy all those she loves... Blooded: Chirayoju, a vampire of Chinese lore, and Sanno, the legendary Japanese Mountain King, have been locked in deadly battle for centuries. An ancient curse imprisoned the spirits of these two warriors in an antique sword; until the sword arrives in Sunnydale. Freed by accident, Chirayoju searches for a host body that will allow him to continue wreaking havoc among the living and the dead. Now Buffy's on the trail of this legendary vampire... a bloody trail that leads straight through the heart of the Buffy-Xander-Willow triangle. One Thing or Your Mother: It's tough being a teenage Slayer. On the verge of failing her junior year thanks to the annoying Principal Snyder, who seems to be acting even stranger than usual lately, Buffy agrees to meet with a tutor… one who may not have her best interests in mind. Not helping her studies is the fact that recently she's been exhausted, waking up each morning feeling more tired than she did the night before. Fighting off exhaustion, Buffy learns that Principal Snyder is the target of a sleep deprivation spell that has taken over Sunnydale. As sleep takes hold of the citizens of Sunnydale, Buffy begins to realize that unless she breaks the spell soon, the nightmare is just beginning.

The intense and continuing popularity of the long-running television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003) has long been matched by the range and depth of the academic critical response. This volume, the first devoted to the show's imaginative and widely varied use of music, sound and silence, helps to develop an increasingly important and inadequately covered area of research - the many roles of music in contemporary television. Chapters focus on scoring and source music, the title theme, the music production process, the critically acclaimed musical episode (voted number 13 in Channel Four's One Hundred Greatest Musicals), the symbolic and dramatic use of silence, and the popular reception of the show by its international fan base. In keeping with contemporary trends in the study of popular musics, a variety of critical approaches are taken from musicology, cultural studies, and media and communication studies, specifically employing critique, musical analysis, industry studies and hermeneutics.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, grade: 2,0, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, language: English, abstract: Throughout the past centuries information has been conveyed between people through different media. In the last century the most important and successful medium has developed, namely television. It has never held more power than at the turn of the last millennium. In the western world, especially the United States of America practically every household possesses at least one television set, and this not only for information purposes, but mostly for the personal pleasure. This is why a lot of work and thought is being put into television programs that are designed for entertainment, such as films and series. In order to be successful, such a television series has to combine many factors. Besides having an entertaining plot, it also has to deal with issues that concern the viewer and are important to him, since in our medialized culture, television seems to be the one medium that reaches out to the largest amount of people. One of the most mesmerizing programs is the format of television series, where every week, the viewer can follow the development and lives of characters that have grown close to his heart because of the viewing frequency. Throughout the age of television, which can be seen as the second half of the 20th century, there have been many different series which have attracted a broad viewer range and glued the American public to the television screen every night. Not only sitcoms, such as Friends and Seinfeld have been such successes, but many series have used a Hollywood movie format, to captivate their viewers even more. Mostly these shows dealt with the issues that concerned their target, for example friendship, family lives, action, and of course romance. After the huge feminist movements in the 1960s, shows like Mary Tyler Moore or Charlie’s Angels tried to emphasized women’s strength, although the accomplishment of that can be argued about.
