Rewatching Buffy

I finally bought the Buffy the Vampire Slayer boxset this week and now I'm wondering how I have lived without it for so long. I've decided to rewatch the entire show from the beginning starting with "Welcome to the Hellmouth." How long it will take before I reach "Chosen", I don't know. I will post my thoughts after rewatching each ep. Some I haven't seen in ages, like "Some Assembly Required" or "Goodbye, Iowa" and some I'm barely able to remember because I didn't like them first time 'round, like "Buffy vs Dracula." It will be interesting to find out if my opinion of certain eps (or characters etc.) will have changed while rewatching the entire series.
