Corrected entry: In the first season, Giles tells everyone that for a vampire to make another vampire, the victim must drink the vamp blood too. Throughout the whole show we see vamps constantly killing people by draining them and dumping them, only for the victim to come back later as a vamp themselves, without feeding from their killer at all.
Corrected entry: There are three actors who have the rare accolade of having appeared in the three Mutant Enemy shows: Buffy, Angel and Firefly. They are Jonathan M. Woodward who played the vampire Holden Webster in the Buffy episode 'Conversations With Dead People', Carlos Jacott who played Ken in 'Anne' and Andy Umberger who plays recurring vengeance patron D'Hoffryn.
Corrected entry: The location of a vampire's heart seems to migrate quite a bit across the show. We can see vamps staked in the center of the chest, on the left side, at the base of the sternum, and even (quite shallowly) in the back. Yet in Graduation Day, Pt. 1, we see that Angel's heart is very strictly defined by Faith's very accurate placement of an arrow in the left of his chest.Phoenix
Corrected entry: How does Angel maintain an apartment in the first two seasons, complete with furnishings and a few antiquities? He has no job of which we are aware, so no source of income. He was living on the streets when he came to Los Angeles, so he would have had very few possessions (certainly no relics from his global travels). And with a soul, he wouldn't have hurt or killed anyone to acquire money, possessions, or the apartment.
Corrected entry: During Season 2 we see that after Angelus has killed Drusilla, but before she has risen, he is cursed. However in later seasons it is shown that the two of them, as well as Darla and Spike, wreak havoc all across Europe, so somehow the time line was changed just to further a storyline.troy fox
Corrected entry: Once a human has been bitten by a vampire, it seems that the time it takes to change into a vampire is very aleatory. Most of the time, it happens once buried, but other times (like episode "Helpless") it's only a few minutes/hours later, and some other times, it's even a few days later.
Corrected entry: The hole in Anthony Stewart Head's left earlobe is frequently visible throughout the show, but an earring would be totally out of character for Giles - even if he had gotten one during his rebellion in his 20s, it would be almost entirely healed over by the time we see him in Sunnydale, whereas the hole is obviously in regular use.Shay
Corrected entry: Katie Holmes was originally asked to play Buffy, but turned down the part. Sarah Michelle Gellar audtioned for Cordellia and Charisma Carpenter (Cordellia) auditioned for Buffy. After Sarah Michelle Gellar was turned down the part for Cordellia, she auditioned 4 times for Buffy before landing the part.
Corrected entry: It has been stated that Joss mentioned Buffy burning down her old school's Gym even though it was never shown in the movie of BtVS to have proper continuity with the original script. But one thing he seemed to totally neglect from the original story is that Buffy gets "cramps" when a Vampire is near. This served as a warning for movie Buffy but TV show Buffy could walk right past one and not feel anything. It seems the only reason this decision was made is to make it easier to get into danger and have more exciting shows.troy fox
Corrected entry: In the very first episode, Cordelia describes Sunnydale as being a very small town. Well, for a small Californian town, it grows at a spectacular rate. Since then, we have seen the town magically develop two universities, another high school, docks, a beach, a zoo, a funfair, an army base, bus depot, train station, airport, 43 churches and a miniature golf course, which earlier on, Willow makes a point of saying doesn't exist in Sunnydale. Now that's what I call urban development.
Corrected entry: It has always troubled me that no-one ever thinks to try using a gun on the demons. The Rocket Launcher worked on The Judge in Series 2, so why not just try a gun? Especially on people like Caleb, who appears to be human, why waste two potential slayers on trying to fight him when you could just shoot him? Or at least see if it worked.
Corrected entry: Faith's little rhyme from Graduation Day Part 2 "Little Miss Muffet counting down from one, three, oh" actually refers to Dawn's arrival. One and three are odd numbers, and the next in the sequence is five, which was Dawn's first season. Also, in the season 5 episode Real Me, the crazy guy says to Dawn "Curds and whey" outside the Magic Box, and that's part of the next line to the Little Miss Muffet rhyme.
Corrected entry: Buffy died in the first season (but comes back to life of course) and Kendra gets called to take her place technically becoming the chosen one. When Kendra dies, Faith come into the picture and becomes the chosen one. So in fact there are two chosen slayers now, Buffy and Faith. But in the last season the First are out only to get Buffy. They should be going after Faith as well seeing that both Faith and Buffy are the chosen slayers at this point.
Corrected entry: In the season 5 episode 'Fool For Love' Spike tells Buffy that Nikki Wood gave up because she had no ties to the world, but we later find out that she had a son, which seems like a pretty strong tie. There's no question of Spike not knowing about him; in the episode 'Lies My Parents Told Me' Spike sees him while fighting Nikki.Shay
Corrected entry: In season 7, it is often said that for one of the potentials to be activated, Buffy will have to die. However technically, Buffy is not carrying on the slayer line - Faith is as Buffy gave this up at the end of season 1 when she died. Even if it is possible for her to still carry on the slayer line, how come another slayer wasn't activated when Buffy died for Dawn in the season 5 finale "The Gift"?
Corrected entry: At the end of Season 5, Buffy died. She was still dead into Season 6, before Willow raised her. Spike says she was dead 147 days. When one slayer dies, another takes her place (i.e., Kendra). The slayer's death does not have to be reported to anyone (example: the Council), as when Buffy died the first time and Xander gave her mouth-to-mouth to bring her back (she was only dead for a few minutes). A few episodes later - voila, Kendra. So, where was the new slayer after Buffy died at the end of Season 5?Bruce
Corrected entry: During season 1 it is mentioned a few times that if the Master rises the Hellmouth will open, since his being trapped in it has jammed it up. In 'The Wish' we see what Sunnydale would have been like if Buffy hadn't gone there and he had risen, so why didn't the Hellmouth open?Shay
Corrected entry: In the Season 7 episode 'Selfless' we are told that Anyanka was known as Aud back when she turned Olaf into a troll and had him imprisoned in the purple crystal, and that she only adopted the name Anyanka when D'Hoffryn made her a demon. But back in the Season 5 episode 'Triangle', when Olaf was released he refered to Aud as Anya straight away. He wouldn't have known about her name change.
Corrected entry: In Series 7 Episode 14, it is indicated several times that Principal Wood is over 30 - Xander says he's 10 years older than Buffy, Wood refers to events 'back in his 20s', but Wood also says he was 4 when his mother died. In Season 5, the episode 'Fool For Love' we are told Nikki, his mother, died in 1980. This would make him only 26/27, not into his 30s.
