Format: Paperback
The good news is that original shooting scripts of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" are available, as in this volume offering up the last six episodes of Season One. But the bad news, relatively speaking, is that we just get the scripts without any extras. The pages are your traditional Courier style font (including the title page), and while the pages are not in blue, pink, green, yellow, goldenrod and salmon to reflect the various revisions, if you follow the revision dates on the top of the pages you can figure that part out. Therefore, while I appreciate having the original scripts in front of my while watching the episodes so I can see what has been deleted/added/changed (these are not transcripts; big difference), I would have really liked to have a bit more such as introductions by the writers talking about the genesis of the script ideas or problems they had to overcoming in putting the script into production, beyond the production notes and stage directions. Certainly some of what I am looking for can be found in "The Watcher's Guide," which covers the show's first two seasons, but given how first-rate the BtVS companion volumes have been I am rather surprised this is a comparatively bare bones effort.
Included in this volume for those of you who do not have the first 100 episodes totally memorized are "Angel" written by David Greenwalt, "I Robot, You Jane" by Ashley Gable and Tom Swyden, "The Puppet Show" by Rob Des Hotel and Dan Batali, and a trio of scripts by series creator Joss Whedon, "Nightmares," "Out of Mind, Out of Sight" and "Prophecy Girl.

The first seaon of Buffy was obviously only the beginning of things to come but it has lost none of the magic over the show's four year run. This book gives you access to the last half uncut episodes of Season 1 and would make a great present for any Buffy Fan (along with volume 1 of course)

Being an avid Buffy fan I bought this and vol 1 as soon as they came out. However, I am disappointed. They appeared to promise so many extra snippets of script but these are already in the Watcher's Guide. I would advise anyone from Buffy fanatic to Buffy beginner to avoid this and buy the season one video box-set or DVD as this is one of the best seasons. Why read the book when you can watch the episodes repeatedly and learn the script that way!!!!

Fantastic 4 Dec. 2000
By P Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just as with the first volume of scripts from season one, this second volume gives you the writers insight, deleted scenes and production notes. It is a must if you have the first volume as it wraps up the first season. It is interesting to see how the writing improves as the year went along. The characters start building deeper personalities and we get to know them better. That is always the key with successful TV shows, the ability to connect and relate to the characters and caring about how their "lives" turn out. Just like volume one, a great and funny read.
Lots of fun 12 Dec. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a great idea. The writing on Buffy has always been its greatest asset. These scripts just sparkle. I was especially pleased to read the scripts of episodes I missed. The writing is so good -- and the actors have done such terrific jobs establishing their characters -- that I felt like I was watching the show, not reading about it. These two volumes have some wonderful hidden gems, too -- such as dialogue and scenes left on the cutting room floor. (Good decision, by the way. The omitted scenes tend to be dull.) The only dud in the collection is "I Robot, You Jane." I remember enjoying this episode when it was on television. On paper, though, the dialogue falls flat. In general, a real treat.

Not much has changed. 1 Jun. 2001

If you like Buffy, you will like the scripts. This is my self fulfilling prophecy to you.
It is the second half of Season One, so if you are a latecomer to the Buffy franchise, this will give you a great opportunity to catch with the crowd until the DVD comes out.
I love Buffy 9 Oct. 2013

Some of the dialogue is different from what was actually filmed so it was interesting to see what changed from the original script.

Bought it for a silent auction. The bidders loved the nostalgia.
