        The comics series is still being produced, so you can't buy a complete complete set, but some of the issues have started coming out in paperback form in the mini arcs. Otherwise... well, I'm not from england, so I can't recommend exactly where to get them from.

        And... you can always rewatch!!!

                You can buy the comics off 'TFAW.COM' it's the website Darkhorse links and it's safe and reliable and will ship the comics out to you. They're also really good should you have any problems, I've went back and forth with them and they've always been a great help. Or there's always the transcripts on the site that you can check out.

                  Watch Angel: the Series. It ran from 1999 to 2004 and lasted 5 brilliant seasons. It's very good (many believe it is better than Buffy, including me), very epic, excellent writing and half the story. There are crossovers and many familiar characters and faces between both shows.

                    You're not living in a big castle with a bunch of teenage girls are you, by any chance...?

                    Definitely read the comics. But also watch How I met your mother, which has a lot of the same sense of humour as Buffy. Angel's good too, though I don't like it as much as Buffy.

                    Read Fray, if you fancy some future slayer comics action (you could get that in a normal bookshop I think, Borders if they have that up above the border? )

                    And watch The Wire. Absolutely no connection to Buffy, except one of the guys in it once was in a vampire show...but it is AWESOME.

                        Watch Angel and you will fall in love with the characters. All seasons are amazing. Then watch Veronica Mars, it?s my third passion following Buffy and Angel. And you can also wait a few more months and rewatch. I?ve learnt that Buffy gets even better with repeated viewings.

                          Watching Angel is the first thing you should have on your list.

                          Even before the comics. There is in fact a few lines in the comics (even in the BtVS ones) that involves stuff from AtS. In fact, there are episodes of BtVS that involve stuff from AtS as well. When you watch both shows together, you'll realize some things you probably missed in BtVS (what Angel was 'apologizing' for in The Yoko Factor is a good example).

                          Same with the effeminate person named "Fred" on the phone in Lies My Parents Told Me, Spike and Drusilla's conversation about Darla in Crush (also explains why Drusilla has burn makeup on in that episode), Angel's life in Los Angeles with Cordy and Doyle being discussed in Pangs, or when Faith is talking about the mind-walk. BtVS and AtS were separate, but self-referential on both sides. And that little deus ex machina bauble that saved the day in Chosen--it actually has more to do with AtS than BtVS! Faith's story post-season 3 BtVS is more prominent on AtS than BtVS.

                              Have you seen Firefly and Serenity? That's a good 17 hours of Jossness right there!

                                I'll say:

                                1- Watch Angel the show
                                2- Read Fray (the future slayer)
                                3- Read Buffy season eight as well as Angel: After the Fall

                                  buffyholic and doubleshiny nailed it. Watch Angel. Then watch Firefly and Serenity (in that order, the movie is spoilerish for some of the plot arc of the show).

                                  Once you've done that, get the Season 8 comics. Also, there are five omnibus volumes of Buffy comics apart from S8 to enjoy (i.e., Volume I; which includes the pretty much canonical Origin comic that retcons the movie to better fit the series). And Fray, of course.

                                  Veronica Mars is also very good, especially the first season, so you should definitely put it on the list. And I assume you're already watching Heroes.

                                  Once you've caught up on all of that, go back to the beginning and watch Buffy and Angel as broadcast (i.e., go back and forth between them once Angel begins in S4). It's pretty interesting.
                                  Cordially,

                                  I didn't jump. I took a tiny step, and there conclusions were.

                                    You have to check out Veronica Mars, it?s amazing! Amuk is right: you need to see Firefly and then Serenity. It?s more Joss whedon goodness.

                                      That's what I'm doing too.

                                      Some talented writers online have also done full fanfic seasons with great characterization and stories. Check out the award sites.
