One thing re the FX reruns - they are often edited/cut differently than the original ones were when aired. Most jarring is the S6 musical episode "Once More With Feeling" - it was longer than an hour when originally aired, but it was cut down quite a bit when the repeat aired.

that's a good point. A lot of what they cut out are the little nuances that give the show character, for the sake of commercials. I also find the sound to be really off on FX's airings - something I find for almost everything I've watched on that channel. Definitely watch the DVDs if you can get your hands on them. And if you buy the first 4 seasons with the Amazon deal and decide you don't like them, I'm sure you could find someone around these parts to take them off your hands. :)

Agreed. I'm absolutely loving season 1 of Angel. I don't hate Cordy though. I didn't like her on Buffy but really enjoy her on Angel.

Season 1 of Angel has been worth it thus far if for nothing more than Angel's dance interlude in "Expecting". I had to instant replay that several times. :D

The pilot episode is titled "Welcome to the Hellmouth", which probably gives you some fairly good keywords for a wishlist.
Again (as mentioned in past Buffy threads), to nitpick a little, "Welcome to the Hellmouth" is the premiere episode. Buffy also had a separate pilot (which is similar to the premiere episode), which the BBC Buffy site calls "The Pilot", which Julie Benz calls "The Pilot Presentation" and "The Presentation", and which many fan sites call "The Buffy Pilot" and "The Unaired Pilot" and similar names. Here is some video of Julie Benz discussing the pilot.

I have to agree that "School Hard" is a great episode, but "Becoming, Part 2" is probably my favorite episode of the season. But I thought season 5 (and especially "Fool for Love") was the best season of all. So, you have a lot of great Buffy to look forward to!

I never got into Angel though - maybe I will have to start when it hits syndication. (or is it there already?)

Ahhh... Buffy! What a fantastic show! I'd love to see a spinoff with Willow in England. I think "Once more with feeling" is one of my favorite episodes. If for no other reason, than to see Anya sing about bunnies. FYI, they sell the songs on a CD. "Hush" is another one of my favs. Also, the book DreadPirate Rob mentioned " Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Philosphy" is a great book. There's a few others in the series. There's one about the Matrix (fantastic), one about the Simpsons, and one about the Lord of the Rings (last two not read yet.) If you're looking for other good Buffy books, pick up "Seven Seasons of Buffy : Science fiction and fantasy writers discuss their favorite show", and "Fighting the Forces: What's at stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Really shouldn't forget the script and song book to "Once more with Feeling." I miss my Buffy! Hopefully I'll find the new season in my stocking this year!

Taken from today's IMDB news. As far as Sarah Michelle Gellar making an appearance on Angel....

Sarah Michelle Gellar has further broken the hearts of Buffy The Vampire Slayer fans - she has turned down the chance to recreate her famous TV character in episodes of spin-off series Angel. Buffy creator Joss Whedon had offered the actress the chance to return to TV in 2004 to play Buffy in two special episodes of Angel, but she has turned him down. A disappointed Whedon says, "She feels it's not the right time."
My thought is, give it time. After the Scooby Doo movie franchise dies down, she'll come back.

My hunch is that 25 years from now, she'll be like Richard Hatch, looking back at his one moment of glory and devoting his life to pathetic attempts to recreate it... :D

A little harsh don't you think? :)
After 7 years of Buffy I can understand her not doing cartwheels to do it again, even for 2 episodes of Angel. When the proper amount of time has passed I'm sure she'll be happy to finally close the book by doing a couple of shows for Joss. If she's lucky he'll kill her off.

Yeah, but.... (warning, spoilers for anyone that hasn't finished Buffy)
She's already died twice. The only certainty about Buffy is that death isn't final, especially in Buffy's case.

:D

One of the reasons I wasn't initially drawn to the series was that I don't find SMG that attractive or that great of an actress. I've seen her in a few movies and was never impressed. She should keep her Buffy options open IMO. :)

I have always thought SMG's acting was easily the weakest link of the show. Much like Ben Affleck in Kevin Smith movies though, it doesn't really matter. The writing is so good even poor acting transcends it.

Seeing that there are no soap fans on this message board, I must add that before Buffy she was on All MY Children and actually won a daytime emmy. Now, again, non-soap fans may say, "Who cares, soap actors can't act either". I disagree. There are actors (though I'll agree few and far between) that can act circles against anyone out there. I think SMG is a good actress but chooses bad roles (Buffy excepted).

Back to Buffy. I watched all of Buffy and all of Angel. I thoroughly miss BTVS on television. I'm having Angel withdrawal right now.

cpalma, since you're talking about spoilers from this season of Angel, would you please add a
tag? Some of the latecomers to Angel (myself included) aren't watching the most recent season yet and don't want it spoiled.

I sincerely apologize. I'm a spoiler hater!! I just didn't think Cordy's ...
was a spoiler. :)
