8 November 2004 | somethinginteresting
One of the best TV shows of all time. Period.
Buffy is series that was not only consistently good, but a series that grew better over time. The first season is good, but not fantastic. It was shorter because the WB was not sure if they would have a viewing base and only had 12 episodes. The second season developed the characters and you began to see the magic of the show. As the series progresses, I am astounded by the writing, directing, and acting. Joss Whedon is a genius of the camera and master of the pen, and anyone who argues with me is fooling themselves. The cast, as well as the characters, matures over time and become living, breathing people that you believe.

In short, if you are considering watching this show, I highly recommend you watch all of the first and second season before making any judgements. Frankly, this is my favorite story of all time. It transcends the TV, and beats out most books, movies, and other TV shows. This show is beautiful.

Quotes

Willow Rosenberg: What's his number? Oh yeah, 1-800-I'm-dating-a-skanky-hoe.
Buffy Summers: Meow.
Willow Rosenberg: Really? I've never gotten a 'meow' before.


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

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.


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.
