Format: Paperback
Loved it. I had the second edition already and loved it but it only went to season six so I was always left hanging when I would read through it. Nice to have the whole series reviewed and I like how she added the 'going back to the beginning' part in season seven. My only complaints are that I would have like more pictures and I liked the cover for the second edition better, but that's just my opinion.

Format: Paperback
I loved this book. It's very entertaining and explains a lot of things that didn't make sense before.

I also liked the "oops" sections. E.g. episodes where Spike or Angel have reflections if you look closely, or Giles' eyeglasses keep going up or down as the camera moves.

The only "con" I found is that the author thinks Angel is handsome. Frankly, I think Spike is way better. But then that's a matter of taste...

Biased and inaccurate at times June 23 2011
By Raimie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this book to be biased and at times, incredibly inaccurate. Depending on the author's preference for the episode, you will get a longer and more detailed explanation with facts and commentary woven in. Same goes for the characters. We get it, you love Willow and think Alyson Hannigan was the real star of the show. The "Nitpick" portions of this book are what really bother me because it would appear this person has not actually WATCHED the episode in quite some time in order to make such incorrect summaries of what's going on. Examples include: "The Prom" nitpick: "At the beginning of the episode, Buffy walks into Angel's house and throws the curtains wide open, almost incinerating him. Doesn't she know better by now?" when in fact, they wake up together after a post-slayage nap and she is unaware that it is morning and this entire incident was accidental. Or "Life Serial" in which the comment is, "How did Buffy get into the demon bar with a bottle of alcohol? The bartender never would have allowed it, especially considering she's only 20" when in fact Spike orders drinks from the bartender and Buffy snags the bottle out of his hand, removing the stopper and chugging it. For someone who includes pages and pages of triva questions, they really don't seem to have their facts straight.

The definitive fan guide, updated to celebrate the show's 10th anniversary Feb. 4 2008
By Jessica Lux - Published on
Format: Paperback
Nikki Stafford, author of companion guides for five television programs from the ECW Press, has just released a revised version of her classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer guide to coincide with the show's 10th anniversary. Bite Me!: The 10th Buffyversary Guide to the World of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is now available in The Chosen Edition: Seven Seasons, One Book. Stafford examines each of the show's eleven main characters and provides episode guides, charting the development of the Buffy mythology across all seven seasons, as well as in the Dark Horse season eight comic books. Her episode guides contain trivia, fan gripes, nitpicks, references to bands and music, and "did you notice?" moments. She has also written a 6-page ultimate Buffy trivia quiz.

In this updated 2007 version, Stafford is able to chronicle the legacy of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," which lives on in fanhood well beyond the 2003 end of the television series. Updates on the careers of the show's stars are included. The author also addresses the show's move from the WB to UPN network, the short-lived follow-on show "Angel," and the unaired pilot episode.

Stafford has also written ECW Press guides to Xena, Angel, Alias, and Lost.

Pretty good Jan. 17 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very complete guide, pretty interesting. Main problem is that I noticed some of her "Nitpicks" sections were incorrect. On the episode "The Replacement," she complained that Xander picked up the phone when he had barely moved in, that the phone shouldn't have already been hooked up. But when he first looks at the house, the woman says that the phone is already hooked up. And other stuff like that.

Full of facts March 28 2011

I am re-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and this book has been a great companion to the series. I have both the physical book and the Kindle edition. I'd recommend getting the physical book if your choosing between the two -- it's easier to use as a reference.

This was a fun read. It has great summaries of every episode in the series, and little tidbits of information that we might not have known. Definitely a "must buy" for any Buffy fan!
