SyFy is showing Buffy all day today. I have never been able to get into Buffy, though I loved Angel and Firefly. I am recording these - though it's just one or two from each season - to try again. I know Hush is in there and also the singing one. I think my favorites were a couple of Halloween episodes. Especially one where they became their costumes.

Yeah, fortunately they appear to be going in order, although as you note they're only doing select episodes from each season.

The only episode of "Buffy" that was shot 16:9 was "Once More, With Feeling". Every other episode was framed for 4:3. Some episodes have been released using the full width of the 35mm film, but that messes up the original framing (off-center, studio equipment visible, framing wider than director intended).

I am hoping they picked the best of each season but don't know for sure....

I was googling yesterday about this. Found a site that showed the same scene 4:3 and 16:9. Saw the one with studio equipment on the edges of the 16:9 frame. There was another one that in the scene, a person suddenly comes into frame to break the tension. In 16:9, you can see this person's arm, so you know somebody is there. So, the tension breaking doesn't work, because you already know someone is there.

I'm still watching the 16:9 version. The things this guy pointed out, I'd probably never notice.

Well, I just noticed a 16:9 thing all on my own. This is a screen print I took from an episode I'm watching. Buffy and her man were having sexy time in a room and it was causing a frat house to be haunted. There was all kinds of vegetation and vines growing around.



You can see someone's arm in the far left. In motion, it was pulling a vine around. Quite sure that wouldn't be in the 4:3 frame.

I'll stick with the first guide linked.

That was me. Not that I created it. Only posted it and I'm using it as well. Im up to

Buffy ‘Triangle’ (S05E11)
Angel ‘Redefinition’ (S02E11)

and so far everything has been good when the two shows relate to each other.



Hush..... Ya one of my favorites. I watched that one and then started watching again with the dvd commentary just to see what they said. I normally never listen to the commentary. But I ended up watching the entire show over again.

I'm up around episode 18-20 for Buffy season 4 and Angel season 1. I'm enjoying both shows quite a bit.

Charisma Carpenter continues to get incredibly hot. I was looking to see what she is up to now and I think she's on some ABC Family show. I enjoy her shallow character in L.A. on Angel.

Oh yeah, I also like that Anya character on Buffy. The former demon who just says whatever dumb thing is on her mind.

Finished off season 4 of Buffy and season 1 of Angel last night. Really didn't like the last ep of Buffy. The whole dream world of the first slayer thing.

Jumped right in and watched first episode of season 5 Buffy. I liked the Buffy vs Dracula thing. Xander eating bugs, and Giles having some fun with the 3 sisters.

That last episode of season 4 is my husband's favorite.

After Season 5, go back and rewatch the finale of season 4. The episode basically lays out most of what will happen to the characters in the future.
