I saw this over on Whedonesque. Some of them are quite funny and the reference to ASH Nescafe ad really made me laugh.

I think the drinking and promiscuity suggestions for teens might be culturally supported but I'm not sure about the violence. The lack of guns in the UK is a definite pro to teenagers not getting as bloody & out of control. The more hooligan behaviour I always sadly put down to adults. Although there is the threat of the hoodie groups on the streets I suppose.

Buffy being from Essex was a nice touch, I thought. I suppose "The Essex girl" archtype is the closest thing to a "Valley girl" in terms of the ditzy, promiscuous girl (although Buffy subverts this trope of course). Not sure about Angel being a Yorkshireman though...

Wish less of that had sailed over my head. I wonder how much it was written as a "in the UK 1997-2003" vs "in the UK 2015".
