Plot Summary

"In every generation there is a chosen one... she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer." Buffy Summers knows this tale by heart, and no matter how hard she tries to be just a "normal girl", she can not escape from her destiny... Thankfully, she is not alone in her quest to save the world, as she has the help of her friends, the hilarious (and surprisingly quite effective) evil-fighting team called "The Scooby Gang". Together, Buffy & co. will slay their demons, survive one apocalypse after another, attend high school and college... and above all, understand that growing up can truly be Hell sometimes... literally.

Trivia Spike's trademark coat cost two thousand dollars from a top fashion store. It was then run over repeatedly by a truck to give it that distressed look. See more »
Goofs In nearly every episode presented in widescreen, there is crew/equipment visible and/or revealing mistakes. This is because the series was originally shot for 4:3 frame and these issues would not have been visible as the show was originally intended to be presented. As such, one should take much of the goofs reported on episodes as being conditional on applying only to the widescreen alternate version. See more »

Crazy Credits The sequence with the Mutant Enemy mascot, the little monster that goes "Grr Argh" at the end of all episodes, was changed for a total of six episodes: in "Becoming Part Two" (#2.22) it said, 'Oh, I need a hug." in "Amends" (#3.10) it wore a Santa hat and bells were jingling. in "Graduation Day Part Two" (#3.22) it wore a graduation cap. in "Once More With Feeling" (#6.07) it sang its "Grr Argh." in "Storyteller" (#7.16) it sang, "We are as gods." in "Chosen" (#7.22) it looked out at the viewers instead of looking straight-forward.
