Part one of the two-part series premiere written by series creator Joss Whedon. Buffy, having just moved schools to Sunnydale High School, hopes to leave her troubles behind and start anew. However, her duties as this generation's Slayer, and pestering from the new school librarian are not making this easy. We also see that The Master is threatening to break free of his underground prison.
Casting: Brian Thompson has played more than one role across this series but the wiki cannot link to more than one character for the same actor within the same show. Although he is listed as playing the Judge, he actually portrays a vampire called Luke in this episode.
