As Xander crawls from his ice cream truck into his room, the the blue screen outside the truck's side window partially leaves the visible area of the window, revealing the studio. Then, the chroma key effect is turned off too early, showing the blue screen in its true color. This is only visible in the expanded-to-widescreen version, not in the originally intended 4:3 frame.

Everybody Sleeping (Including Me)
24 August 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Bufy, Willow, Xander and Giles decide to spend the night watching videos at Joyce's home. They fall asleep and they all share a nightmare with the first slayer.

This boring episode closes the Fourth Season with all the characters sleeping including me. I had to repeat many scenes, and I really did not like this overrated "Restless" (8.6 in the User Rating is a joke). My vote is three.

Now, we Brazilians, fans of this great series, have to wait for the decision of the distributor Fox do Brasil to see if and when the Fifth Season of Buffy will be released. The Third Season was released on 25 August 2003, and the Fourth Season was released only in May 2006. Lets see if Fox will show a minimum of respect for us.

Title (Brazil): "Inquietação" ("Restless")
