Does never knowingly having seen any count as "Not Liking"?  I think
someone once had a video of a Buffy episode going on in the same room as
me, but the sound was turned off and I don't have any idea what it was
about apart from somebody being aggressive on a flight of concrete stairs
in what looked to me like a standard "school" setting, and some
bushes-after-dark shots later with someone registering Strong Emotion (but
I have no idea which person or which emotion).  I don't think this conveys
the full inwardness of the series -- or does it?

I had to be pretty forthright with some people who tried to do unto me what
got done unto Rosie there, in order to keep the "haven't seen any and can't
be bothered" status I'm allowed on account of having no TV/video, but I
made it.
