Trivia

The massive demon coming out of the Hellmouth at the end of "Prophecy Girl" had to be frightening, but the budget didn't allow for computer-generated images. The masterminds at Optic Nerve ended up making tentacle "costumes". Each of the tentacles has a human being inside, manipulating from within. See more »

Goofs

When Xander is doing CPR we can see his hands are high on her chest, near her throat. To properly perform CPR the hands should be lower, below the breastbone. Having his hands that high would not pump the heart and would probably break her breastbone in the process. See more »

Quotes

Rupert Giles: Buffy, I'm not gonna send you out there to die. Now, you were right. I-I've waded around in these old books for so long, I've forgotten what the real world is like. I-it's time I found out.
Buffy: You're still not going up against the Master.
Rupert Giles: I've made up my mind.
Buffy: So have I.
Rupert Giles: I made up my mine first! I'm older and wiser than you, and just... just do what you're told for once! Alright?

Season One
11 April 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

Season One of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is honestly quite poor when compared to basically all of the later episodes of the show. Although it contains two memorable and exciting episodes- "Angel" and "Prophecy Girl", it's really mostly a collection of poor or mediocre, and really formulaic (see monster becoming a threat, monster captures/endangers someone Buffy likes or is related to, and Buffy saves the day) episodes that serve no purpose or benefit but to introduce the characters and setting. Luckily, it's only 12 episodes long and the second season was an astronomical improvement.

Average rating based on all episodes: 5.33/10
