| Absolutely Brilliant
I have no idea why people are hating on this brilliant TV show. I watched the entire series on DVD and was completely caught up in it my the end of season one. This show stands up over time and does not become outdated. I watched this show thinking it would be an entertaining hour and was shocked to find the show compelling, hilarious, and full of real emotion. The writers and especially Joss Whedon have come up with some of the funniest TV out there, and easily keep your attention for the entire seven seasons. Each season seems to get funnier, and all the characters continue to develop. Anyone who gives this show a real chance will be captured by the Buffy Universe. If you can ignore some of the more low budget demons and instead focus on the characters and emotion of the story you will not be disappointed. BTVH will make you laugh, cry, and fall in love with the characters. 10/10.

Trivia

At one point, Joss Whedon wanted Sunnydale to sink into the earth in Season 5. This happened in Season 7 instead.


Quotes

Rupert Giles: In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer.


Goofs

Throughout the series, in episodes with 'good' Angel, Angel does not have a reflection in windows and mirrors. This is explained as it being due to the fact that he is a vampire. Vampires do not cast a reflection as they do not have souls; however, as Angel has a soul he should therefore cast a reflection.


Crazy Credits

The sequence with the Mutant Enemy mascot, the little monster that goes "Grr Argh" at the end of all episodes, was changed for a total of six episodes: in "Becoming Part Two" (#2.22) it said, 'Oh, I need a hug." in "Amends" (#3.10) it wore a Santa hat and bells were jingling. in "Graduation Day Part Two" (#3.22) it wore a graduation cap. in "Once More With Feeling" (#6.07) it sang its "Grr Argh." in "Storyteller" (#7.16) it sang, "We are as gods." in "Chosen" (#7.22) it looked out at the viewers instead of looking straight-forward.


Alternate Versions

In the UK, the BBC managed to get 16:9 widescreen versions of Buffy episodes from season 4 on. These are broadcast in anamorphic widescreen on all digital TV platforms and 14:9 on analogue. The UK DVDs are also presented 16:9 widescreen. In the original US airings and on the US DVDs, the aspect ratio is 4:3 for all episodes except "Once More With Feeling," which is 16:9 everywhere.
