    Even with the full extra star given to anything related to Joss Whedon or Buffy the Vampire Slayer this book rates only four stars. I would be very dismayed if Ms. Stafford has ever had any other thing she's written published and it makes me sad that her treatment of this very intelligent and ground-breaking series was the one published. She writes like an over-enthusiastic tenth-grader talking to her friends about how super awesome her favorite show is. Compound sentences are rife with subject- [...]

    Part of me wishes that I had waited for the latest edition, but this version is still very informative and entertaining.Stafford's (previously) new edition of Bite Me! includes extended biographies/filmographies for all of the major cast members of Buffy and Angel through seasons 6 and 3 respectively. There are also detailed highlights from the official Buffy forum "Posting Board Parties," as well as interesting facts and insights into Buffy's online community. A trivia quiz is included (with a [...]

    No matter if you are a passive fan, or a Whedonite, this book is bound to have something that you will enjoy. It helps connect some of the behind the scene controversies with the WB and Fox and gives in depth commentaries of each episode. What I found the most appealing about this book however, was how it showed the connections between the episodes, highlighting Joss's ability to draw back themes and moments from season one and make them relevant for the entire series. Taking on a task such as w [...]

    Nikki Stafford's episode guide to Buffy the Vampire Slayer succeeds in a way that nearly no other guidebook does: As a fresh, inviting and casual guide, written in a breezy conversational style that makes for an entirely pleasant and easily-consumed experience. Having read several episode guides for a number of different shows, I know how rare it is to find such an approach; as a result, this is one of the very few guidebooks on the market in which readers could find themselves plowing from one [...]

    It was an interesting enough read. Some of her opinions I disagreed with, others I felt she was spot on. But that's the thing about opinions. There's no right or wrong. But as a "guide" I would expect the factual sections to be, well, factual. There were a few points scattered here and there that were incorrect but I was willing to overlook them. But then the book completely lost me after reading (*spoiler alert*) in the write-up for episode 2.10 (What's My Line Part 2), about Kendra: "So why do [...]

    Interesting book, split into two sections, biographies of the actors and then an episode guide. The bios were good, I learned things I hadn't known, especially with insider bits of the show itself. The episode guide was odd, didn't really outline what happened in each episode, glossed over or completely ignored much but picked an element or two to dissect. Much more concerned with themes than specifics. Still, I enjoyed it.

    Read this because I'm doing the Buffy rewatch and had never read Nikki's book. The version I got from my library only went up to Season 6, which was kind of a shame. I enjoyed this book a lot, learned a lot of facts and read it in one sitting.My only quibble was that I didn't really care to read about the posting board party and I skipped that section.I plan to read the Angel book too, once I'm further along in the series.

    I enjoyed reading this book for the background it gave me on the cast and crew of Buffy, and reading the episode analyses was a nice way of reliving the episodes again, but I thought it was a real shame Nikki Stafford hated Beer Bad, Superstar, and Buffy's mum so much! (Especially Superstar, I thought that was a really clever episode.) It's all personal opinion though, so fair enough.

    Eh. Not a fan of the writing style-- too poppy for me. Lots about the actors and how they got famous, complete with captions like "the sexy James Marsters." But does have a comprehensive list of all the episodes from season 1-7, including bloopers and plotholes and things like that. But more of a fandom handbook than a text that would be considered Buffy Studies.

    The definitive unofficial guide to the series. The episode summaries/critiques are well thought out and entertaining; definitely worth a read if you're more than a casual fan of the series!

    Bought this in 2005 or 2006 and I still read it regularly to this day. Especially if I'm watching my Buffy DVD's.

    On its own it's a little thin and fanzine-ish, but when you are trying to remember which episode featured Anya dressed as a giant bunny, it's indispensable.
