A young woman, destined to slay vampires, demons and other infernal creatures, deals with her life fighting evil, with the help of her friends.
Kristoffer Polaha auditioned for the role of Riley. For his thrill, he would later star alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar in Ringer (2011), and Emma Caulfield Ford in Life Unexpected (2010).

I thought you were slaying a vampire.
Buffy Summers: I was whatting a what?
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.
During seasons 6 and 7, the ones that took place on the UPN network, the final shot of the opening credits shows Sarah Michelle Gellar, as in all the previous seasons. The difference is that rather than those images being that of Buffy, they were of facsimiles of the Buffy character. For the majority of Season 6 the final image of the opening credits was of the Buffy Bot shortly before Glory ripped its head off and Season 7's image was of the First Evil, pretending to be Buffy while manipulating Spike. For some fans this plays to the idea that Buffy was somehow not the same after having been resurrected at the beginning of Season 6 through the end of the series run.
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.
