Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Show Tidbits
Although Joss Whedon wrote the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer film, it is not considered canonical to the TV series. Whedon was not satisfied with the film and as such based the series on his original script. A three-part comic titled The Origin adapted the script, blending it with the series. Despite taking issues with a few aspects, Whedon has endorsed the The Origin as canon.
 
Sarah Michelle Gellar originally auditioned for the part of Cordelia Chase, while Charisma Carpenter auditioned for the part of Buffy. Julie Benz and Mercedes McNab both also tried for the part of Buffy but eventually landed the roles of Darla and Harmony respectively.
 
"Mutant Enemy", Joss Whedon's production company, was the name he gave to his first typewriter when he was 15. The logo was created in 20 minutes when he was told he had to have one.
 
Joss Whedon has said that the idea for Buffy came from all the horror movies he had seen featuring a helpless young blonde who would almost always be the first to die. He felt she needed a better image.
 
Seth Green is the only actor in the series to have appeared in the 1992 film, although his character in the film was cut; but appears on the back of the videotape box.
 
Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers) and Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg) are the only actors to appear in all 144 episodes of the series. In second place is Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), who appeared in every episode except for "Conversations with Dead People".
 
Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Anthony Stewart Head (Rupert Giles), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris) and David Boreanaz (Angel) are the only actors to appear in both the first ("Welcome to the Hellmouth") and last ("Chosen") episodes of the series.
 
Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Anthony Stewart Head (Rupert Giles), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris) and Kristine Sutherland (Joyce Summers) are the only actors to appear in all seven seasons of the series. In second place are David Boreanaz (Angel), James Marsters (Spike) and Elizabeth Anne Allen (Amy Madison), who each appear in six seasons.
 
David Boreanaz (Angel) is the only actor to appear in the first and last episodes of both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Furthermore, Boreanaz and Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia Chase) are the only actors to appear in the first episodes of both series whereas Boreanaz and James Marsters (Spike) are the only actors to appear in the last episodes of both series.
