This is about how the course of the show was changed by things the writers didn't plan, like the actors needing time of or wanting to leave.

This was inspired by me watching the end of s6 and being as bugged as i always am by the conversation between Buffy and Giles when Giles returns. Don't get me wrong, the part when they're both laughing hysterically cracks me up, the bit i hate is when they're talking aout Giles leaving and Buffy says it was the right thing to do. It wasnt. I heard (im not 100% this is accurate) they wrote Giles out for a while because Tony Head wanted to spend some time...

Dracula
Dracula
Dracula was the historical Vlad Ţepeş. He claimed to have killed more people than God’s plagues combined before he was ever a vampire, and made reference to impaling people in times past (such as those who failed to show him deference, for example).

He met and “hung out” with Anyanka, a vengeance demon and Patron Saint of Scorned Women, when she was about 700 years old. Anyanka had cursed a man by making him incredibly obese, and Dracula complimented her by saying that the man was doomed forever.

In 2000, Dracula came to Sunnydale, a Californian town which lay on a Hellmouth and was home...

If Buffy had died while Faith was in a coma...they wouldn't have called on another Slayer?? I mean, according to the tradition it would've required Faith's death to bring the next one along.

But then again, they don't really follow the Slayer "rules" anyway and whatever they do doesn't follow logic. Like, Kendra and Faith were good and experienced as a Slayers when they were sent to Sunnydale though it was long known that Buffy was alive after all. And even with those duos happening they still took five more seasons to realize that hey, why not make all the potential ones active and thus be...

Season Seven of "BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER" has been a favorite of mine for years. But it has been rather unpopular with many fans of the series. And I suspect that this unpopularity may have centered around the character and main villain of Season Seven – the First Evil:


"THE MEANING BEHIND THE FIRST EVIL"

If there is one nemesis that has baffled fans of "BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER" for the past six to seven years, it would have to be the First Evil. This entity first made its appearance in the Season Three episode, (3.10) "Amends" and became Buffy Summer’s main nemesis in Season Seven, the...

Persons have always assumed the origins of 5x5 are military in nature. That is indeed the case. On a communications scale over radio a perfect signal is rated a five, all degrees lesser being 4x5, 3x5 etc. until reaching zero which of course cannot be transmitted due to no reception is now available.
But where does the scale come from? In truth its also military and interesting in itself.
Before the advent of computers transmission of voice was simply done by radio, but transmission of "text" items was done by a teletypewriter device. In order for information not to have to be retyped every...

I have read many opinions regarding the breakup of vampire slayer Buffy Summers and her Season Four/Season Five boyfriend, Riley Finn on many discussion forums, blogs and message boards about ”BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER”. The prevailing viewpoint seemed to be that Riley had ruined the relationship with his behavior and attitude in Season Five. I might be one of the few fans of the show who might harbor another opinion. Then again, I might not. Let me explain.

At the end of Season Three, Buffy’s vampire paramour – Angel – had decided it would be safer for her if he left Sunnydale and...

Today, Warner Bros. announced plans to remake 1992′s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which gave birth to the much-loved Sarah Michelle Gellar-headed TV series (which we all still worship unashamedly).

While details are sparse, filmmakers claim the movie would not revisit the vampire slayer’s high school days, attempting instead to capture the “witty, tough, and sexy” heroine in a new way. The team behind the project includes Dark Knight producer Charles Roven and relative newcomer Whit Anderson. The movie could hit theaters in 2012 or late 2011, according to the L.A. Times.

What do you say, readers? Is it time to bring Buffy back from the dead?

Most of these are very strange thoughts. Yes, I have a weird brain. These thoughts will be organized in the form of three questions: What if?, Why?, and Why not?

1. What if?: As a result of a spell going wrong, the Scooby gang was turned into children?

Why?: Spells going wrong are always hilarious. Besides, it would be a very light and fluffy episode, which I thought was what BtVS needed at times (screw you, Marti Noxon).

Why not?: It would be kind of hard to find child stars. *shrug*

2. What if?: We were shown that one time that Spike and Angel were intimate?

Why?: Because it's torture, man! And...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is overall very gay-friendly with its lesbian romances between Willow and Tara, and later Willow and Kennedy, as well as the minor Larry character in the earlier seasons. Before Willow met Tara, though, the show was gay-friendly but mostly in metaphor. There are various allusions to how being a Slayer is like being gay, as well as a minor character (Michael) whose witchcraft seems also a metaphor for being gay.

Buffy serves humanity by fulfilling her role as Slayer, a calling linked with womanhood. A potential Slayer first gets her powers during a time of puberty. It...

Buffy slays Caleb
Buffy slays Caleb
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and to a lesser extent its spin-off Angel) is a feminist show intended to have an inspirational message about young women being strong, but I sometimes see male netizens claiming the show is hatefully anti-male. They say that Joss is a misandrist (man-hater) who uses the show to make women hate men to the point of enacting violence against them. This, however, is a complete misunderstanding of Buffy, Joss, and feminism in general. While there are some individual feminists who are misandrists, feminism is not misandristic in and of itself, and mainstream feminism strives...

Katrina, enthralled by the dampener
Katrina, enthralled by the dampener
In the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode “Dead Things”, the Trio goes out on the town with the magical equivalent of a date rape drug, what they call the cerebral dampener. According to Warren, the dampener has the power to make any woman their “willing” sex slave. However, either he misunderstood the definition of “willing” or he was flat out lying, because the dampener’s function clearly is to remove all free will. Warren’s always been portrayed as a creep, so this makes sense for him, but it’s strange that Andrew and Jonathan fail to recognize the act as rape until their...

Tara's good magic
Tara's good magic
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, while at its most core element is about a girl fighting vampires, featured a wide variety of supernatural elements throughout the course of the show. One of these elements is magic, and more specifically witchcraft. Witchcraft has appeared in several different forms, from evil to neutral to self-destructive to pure good tied into the feminist nature of the show.

Our first look at witchcraft is in the season one episode “The Witch”, in which Amy’s crazy mother hurts everyone in her path with her evil magic on her way to becoming a cheerleading superstar. Here witchcraft...

This is my review of the show. When I had heard about Buffy, a huge show that envolves with Witches, Vampires, and Slayers. But when I heard that Sarah Michelle Gellar was playing a vampire slayer. I knew this show is going to be great with a powerful actress.

+THE BEGINNING+

When I first started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer I was smart that I watch the first season to understand the show better. In the beginning for me was absolutely good, a lot of drama, passion and romantic scenes for Buffy & Angel. The show in the beginning was very intense for all the characters especially for...

Many Buffy fans claim that Spike is Buffy's biggest love. This is totally wrong.Here I will explain why.
As we all know Riley is not Buffy's biggest love. He was just someone who helped Buffy ease her pain after Angel's goodbye. She used him only for sex.
Exactly the same happened with Spike. She never really loved him. He was a "sex machine". But with Angel it was different. Even if they did not have sex she stayed with him proving how much she loved him.
As you all know Buffy's "i love you" to Spike was not real. She told it because she knew he was going to die. But she told "i love you" to Angel not one but many times. And she meant it.
I could possibly find other things but I want to hear your opinion too.
