Special Features

  • Willow Demon Database: The Willow Demon Database has a listing for every single demon and vampire who appeared in the series, including what episodes they appeared in and a short description. The file is available in a Windows executable as well as comparable formats for Apple computers.
  • It's Always Been About the Fans: This four minute featurette highlights the subculture that Buffy the Vampire Slayer has created and how the writers and creators of the show interract with the fans on the internet. Joss Whedon, James Marsters and other cast and crew members for the show talk about their connection with these fans, and also the connection the fans have with the show through things like the 2003 Posting Board Party and The Succubus Club fan radio show.
  • Buffy: Full Circle: This 36-minute featurette begins with a clip show and details the main themes of the season. This includes a "greatest hits" feeling, reclaiming the original mission statement and the problems associated with leadership and what it means to be a hero. The featurette features interviews with many members of the cast and crew about how they approached writing the characters and how they approached the season itself.
  • Buffy 101: Studying the Slayer: This featurette is a critical analysis of the series by critics and scholars. It talks about how Buffy as a show redefined genre television shows and the impact it had on pop culture and society. The featurette is best summed up when the series was referred to as "TV literature" that could be analyzed and scrutinized heavily. The featurette clocks in at about 14 minutes.
  • Generation S: Generation S is about the potential slayerss and their role in the season. There are interviews with several of these potentials and members of the crew. The interviews discuss the importance of this ensemble of characters as well as the importance of the characters individually. The featurette is 8 minutes long.
  • The Last Sundown: The Last Sundown is a look back on Joss Whedon's ten favorite episodes. Those episodes are:
  1. Innocence
  2. Once More, With Feeling
  3. Hush
  4. The Body
  5. Doppelgangland
  6. The Wish
  7. Becoming (2)
  8. Restless
  9. Conversations with Dead People
  10. Prophecy Girl
  • Outtakes Reel: The outtakes reel is only three minutes long. It's all pretty typical outtake stuff with flubbed lines, laughing and at least one fight with crutches.
  • Buffy Wraps: The last documentary is a five-minute feature about the wrap party that took place after the final episode was filmed. It focuses on the reflection so soon after the end of the series. Various members of the cast and crew say goodbye to the series and to Joss Whedon.

Easter Eggs

  • Disc 6: From the main menu, go to special features and then featurettes. On this screen, highlight the entry for "The Last Sundown" and press left to highlight the B in Buffy. You will be treated to the "previously on" segment for the hundredth episode of the series.

Alterations

  • All of the "previously on" segments have been removed from the DVDs with the exception of the hundredth episode, which is only viewable in an easter egg. Because of this, the CGI explosion that occurs in the series is cut out, despite being a transition into the episode.
