This is one of the cool reference books about Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, where you can get detailed information of the now iconic TV series, its characters, its monsters and magic items, that they have appeared on the TV series.

I had a lot of fun reading this book. Buffy is, and always will be, one of my favorite tv shows, and I enjoyed going behind the scenes to read about the characters,actors, episodes etc of the making of the show.

This "episode guide" covers the first two seasons of Buffy, although the author seems to think they all belong to the first season. This is only one example of the problems i have with this book.

This book was pretty hilarious! I loved reading about the bloopers and others interesting things that happened on set and between the cast members and learning more about them.
My only gripe about these books is that I wish they were for the entire series because Spike's input is so limited and Riley, Dawn and Tara and mentioned. Yes, I do realize it was written before the later seasons, but still. Just saying.
