Thirsty for Buffy?

Adding to my theory that Smallville is awesomely postmodern, I just watched the season five episode “Thirst.”

The episode is about a vampire sorority headed by a girl named Buffy Sanders. Hmm… sounds a bit like my favorite vampire hunter Buffy Summers!

To make things more fun and postmodern, there is a scene where Clark tells Professor Fine (played by James Marsters) that he thinks Lana was bit by a vampire. Professor Fine responds, “There’s no such thing as vampires.” … Except that in Buffy Marsters played the evil-turned-good vampire Spike.

Oh will the references never end! Let’s hope not!!
