Happy birthday, SMG! Yes, it’s going to be all Many Happy Returns for a while here, as birthdays are a very easy way to inspire a flashback post. But Sarah Michelle Gellar is a longtime love affair for us, dating back to her days as Erica Kane’s devious daughter Kendall on All My Children, passing through Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Cruel Intentions, and Ringer, and landing on following her on Instagram and thinking she seems like a very good egg. Many happy returns, Smidge, and may we see you on screens of any size very soon. (Except please not Quibi. So far, everything on there is bad enough not even to be worth the free trial.)
