The WB re-airing its best pilots as a goodbye homage

by Jennifer Squires Biller

Remember the days of Buffy, the spunky, vampire-slaying blonde and her tortured-soul boyfriend Angel? Remember Dawson and his Creek pals endlessly analyzing their teenage angst? Remember Felicity and her gang of co-eds firing off a “hey” as a conversation starter? Ahh, I remember it well, the golden days of television. These shows are why I will always love The WB. (Well, that and the fond memories of a smiling, tap-dancing Michigan J. Frog.) As a tribute to the greatness that was The WB, the network is going out in style, by re-airing the pilots of these great shows.

On September 17, the final night of broadcast for The WB, the network will show the first episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dawson's Creek, Felicity and Angel, according to Variety. The following night, the new network The CW, which combined The WB and UPN networks under one umbrella, will debut.

The walk down TV-memory lane begins at 5 p.m. EST and continues until 10 p.m. Set your TiVos, Tubers. Felicity kicks off the homage starting at 5 p.m., followed by Angel, Buffy and finally Dawson’s Creek.

Somewhere, Michigan J. Frog is tipping his top hat and dancing happily on his grave.
