Trivia

According to Visual Effects Supervisor Loni Peristere, an average episode has eighteen to fifty visual effects shots, about ten percent of the total number of shots. The two most common are vampires morphing into game-face, and vampires being dusted. For those, the effects team uses Maya V.4.5 with Stroika, a collection of plug-ins and software, which lets the artists take image maps, or photographs, and emit particles of the same color and lighting.


Quotes

Buffy Summers: Will, let's be realistic here. OK, your basic spells are usually only about 50/50.
Willow Rosenberg: Oh, yeah? Well, so's your face!


Goofs

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.


Crazy Credits

For the three first season 6 (the first UPN season) episodes (Bargaining parts 1 and 2, and Afterlife), the ending credits had almost 3/4 parts of the screen occupied by the Buffy logo (as seen on the opening with the moon behind), and the credits appearing under it. This was later returned to the normal black screen with the credits.


Alternate Versions

The DVD versions of the 2nd part of most two-part episodes omit the opening recap of the previous episodes. The US DVDs omit the recaps on all episodes.
