Buffy the Vampire Slayer should have been set in Manchester, if only because the sassy girl with the stick would have been useful for places like Jabez Clegg. Evil things come from here. Probably with tentacles. Having a girl with superpowers outside might have saved us from entering Manchester's hellmouth. But alas, no Buffy, meaning we were powerless as Jabez tempted us in with cheap beer, and now we have to pray that the photographic evidence of our visit doesn't turn up in 30 years to smear our campaign for presidency.
