|Written for students and fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the book is an exhaustive listing of the cultural references that pop up throughout the show, peppered with trivia, music, episode cross-references, and more. It provides hours of trivia-obsession for fans of Buffy, Willow, Xander, Spike, Angel, and the rest of the Sunnydale residents. The second edition adds a section on the un-aired “Pitch Pilot,” episode arcs for character relationships, and about 30% more cultural references.
Inside this book are 314 pages of:
This book gives you all the answers to questions like: In which episode is Xander’s reference to “Cannibal: the Musical” (Shpadoinkle!)? In which episode does Spike first come to Sunnydale? In which episode does Buffy finally tells the Watcher’s Council that without her, they might as well be watching Masterpiece Theater?
New in the second edition is a listing of the music that is heard during each episode–not just the music performed on stage in the Bronze, but also the background. While there were a few attempts at general soundtracks for the show, there’s no single source for all seven season’s of music. Visit the next best thing to a soundtrack: our page of links to Buffy Music MP3s available from Amazon and iTunes.
There be spoilers ahead!
The Gentleviewer’s Obsessive Guide to Buffy the Vampire Slayer should provide hours of fun for Trivial Pursuit enthusiasts as well as fans of Buffy, the other residents of Sunnydale, and the genius of Joss Whedon. But be warned that this book is basically comprised entirely of spoilers.
