Much Ado About Buffy Boards

2. BB’s got talent

3. The BB Art Battles

4. The Buffies (The Buffy Boards Awards)

5. The Charity Calendar

6. Be nice on the internet week!

7. BB Merchandise! We miss you, store!

11. BB BB! (Buffy Boards Big Brother that is!)

12. Buffy Facebook Recaps created by BEG

13. And… various April Fool’s that Buffy Summers has inflicted upon us ;)




1. Though many think it’s to the contrary, in her 2003 Entertainment Weekly “Buffy Quits” interview Sarah Michelle Gellar clearly stated that her decision to leave Buffy was personal and not career-motivated; "I love this job, I love the fans. I love telling the stories we tell. This isn't about leaving for a career in movies, or in theater—it's more of a personal decision. I need a rest. Teachers get sabbaticals. Actors don't."

2. When Dawn came on the show she was originally supposed to have been able to speak to the dead and to have been telekinetic.

3. On the Howard Stern show Sarah Michelle Gellar was asked several Buffy related question, amongst them whether or not she had ever dated co-star and on-screen lover David Boreanaz. Gellar denied the rumor and indicated it had originated from the fact that she was good friends with Boreanaz’ stunt double at the time and that their pair used to go bowling together.

4. Nathan Fillion auditioned for the role of Spike! Can you guys imagine it?

5. Alyson Hannigan is related to the drummer of Marilyn Manson.

6. Because of his dark but witty take on Angel David Boreanaz was offered the part as Bruce Wayne in Christopher Nolan’s Batman reboot. Boreanaz turned the role down.

7. Sarah Michelle Gellar told Craig Ferguson that she was starstruck by Anthony Stewart Head at the start of BTVS because he was “the coffee guy” (Taster’s Choice)

8. Though David Boreanaz gave a good read for the part of Angel, Joss Whedon wasn’t sold on him, claiming that the actor wasn’t his “type”. Joss explained; “I wasn’t sure we necessarily had the guy here until I asked the women in the room, who had turned into puddles the moment he walked in. I had to defer to them—they seemed to know better than me, and thank god I did, because David turned into a great star and a very solid actor.”

9. The Buffy lingo was a challenge for the lead actress who said; “I grew up in New York. We didn’t have Valley girls, and constantly, I’m asking him ‘What does this mean? I’m not quite sure.’ There’s a very funny story about [my audition] where the first line is ‘What’s the sitch?’ And there I go walking in, and my first [question was,] ‘What does this mean?’ No idea it meant situation. Talk about blowing a job instantly.”

10. Phlebotnum in Jar C! What does that tell you? It’s the Buffy writers own term for vague mystical things and things made up for convenience. It was coined by David Greenwalt when they were trying to figure out what Buffy would be trying to do in the pilot and Greenwalt supposedly shouted; “For God’s sake, don’t touch the phlebotnum in Jar C!” It was later stated; “We have no idea to this day what it was supposed to mean, but it became our word for the vague mystical thing—such as the master’s cork in the bottle theory—so phlebotnum is our constant on the show.”

11. Jimmy Stewart on Buffy! Is Buffy? No, it’s just what David Greenwalt and Joss Whedon nicknamed Sarah Michelle Gellar because she dealt with so much pain on screen. "We used to call her Jimmy Stewart, because he was the greatest American in pain in the history of film

12. Not only is the Stone Temple Pilot’s lead singer Scott Weiland a Buffy-fan but he became one in prison… Sarah Michelle Gellar theorized that the show’s inmate popularity was due to; “Hot chicks doing battle. It's like acceptable porn.”

13. Buffy and Willow are the only characters who appear in every episode of Buffy. Xander was excluded from “Conversations with Dead People” because it was too hard to fit in a storyline for him.
