Ryan Reynolds was originally offered the role of Xander. He passed on it because of his own awful high school experiences. "I love that show and I loved Joss Whedon," Reynolds told 'The Toronto Star' in 2008. "But my biggest concern was that I didn't want to play a guy in high school." (Quoted in: Dibdin, Emma. "27 things you never knew about Buffy the Vampire Slayer," published in 'Digital Spy' Online, August 18 2014.)
Oh my God. You will never believe what happened at school today!
Buffy Summers: Everybody started singing and dancing?
Dawn Summers: I gave birth to a pterodactyl.
Anya: Oh my God. Did it sing?
In nearly every episode presented in widescreen, there is crew/equipment visible and/or revealing mistakes. This is because the series was originally shot for 4:3 frame and these issues would not have been visible as the show was originally intended to be presented. As such, one should take much of the goofs reported on episodes as being conditional on applying only to the widescreen alternate version.
Season 4 final credits include this disclaimer: "UC Sunnydale" is a fictitious university. Any similarity to an actual university is purely coincidental. No representations, warranties, or characterizations of any type regarding any actual university including any named "UC Sunnydale" or "University of California at Sunnydale" are intended and none should be inferred.
Since being shown on BBC2 in the UK, this show has had two time slots, one for an edited version with hardly any excessive violance and bad language, and one late at night, uncut.
