When it comes to cool characters who are witches, the geek in the know bows to the sweet-faced awesomeness of Willow Rosenberg from BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (1997-2003), oh so memorably brought to life by the frankly adorable Allison Hannigan. I have seen a couple of BUFFY episode since it ended it its original run and every time Willow is onscreen my mind comes to a complete halt. The girls from THE CRAFT have their charms, the sisters on CHARMED are okay, and Kim Novack in BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE (1958) gave off waves of classy supernatural sexiness, but there's just something about Willow. That red hair, those sad eyes and her mellow/sleepy voice are irresistible, plus you've just gotta admire a gal who can flay a man with a mere gesture.

Ah, Willow...

Utterly agreed.

Willow grew from "the softer side of Sears" to the hottest chick in Sunnydale without losing an iota of her geeky charm. Faith and Buffy had their appeal (as did Drusilla and even Anya - never could find much to appreciate in Cordellia, though), but Willow still makes me melt.

Oh, Joss - what's next? Please tell us it's better than Dollhouse.

Redheads - the only argument for the existence of God that gives me pause.

I LOVE geeky Willow, vampire Willow, witchy Willow (good & bad) and gay Willow. Every stage she went through freaking rocked. There were a lot of hot chicks in Buffy The Vampire Slayer come to think of it, but Willow was my favorite! Those eyes can melt anyone, no magic necessary.
