Script Book, Season One, Volume One

• Three new books are available at Amazon.com (and elsewhere) today:

The script books include official scripts — including production cues, unfilmed scenes, and the like — for the following episodes: "Welcome to the Hellmouth," "The Harvest," "The Witch," "Teacher's Pet," "Never Kill a Boy on the First Date," and "The Pack" (Volume One); and "Angel," "I Robot, You Jane," "The Puppet Show," "Nightmares," "Out of Mind, Out of Sight," (a.k.a. "Out of Mind, Out of Sight") and "Prophecy Girl" (Volume Two).

• Check out the transcript of James Marsters' AOL/TV Guide chat from November 14th at JamesMarsters.com.



November 27, 2000

DVD update: As most of you probably already know, the North American release of the Season 1 DVDs have indeed been delayed indefinitely. They will eventually be released, reportedly toward the end of next year, but there is no firm release date available. Therefore, Amazon.com has stopped taking pre-orders and has canceled any orders previously placed. Again, this is due to the legal technicalities of syndication/distribution rights. We have no further information at this time. (Note: The Slayer Chronicles Triple Pack is still scheduled for VHS release on January 9th, 2001; pre-orders are being taken now.)

• Read a short interview with Clare Kramer (Glory) at EW.com here.

• The December 1st issue of Entertainment Weekly (with Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson on the cover) features an interview with Anthony Stewart Head and James Marsters.

• The formerly rumored plans for Britney Spears to guest star in an episode of BtVS have now reportedly been canceled, due to lack of time on the part of Ms. Spears.



November 14, 2000

SMG on CosmoGirl!

James Marsters is scheduled to chat tonight at AOL/TV Guide. Go to AOL Keyword: Live at 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time. (You must have AOL in order to participate.)

Sarah Michelle Gellar is on the cover of this month's Cosmo Girl! magazine (December/January), on newsstands now.

• Check out a transcript of Charisma Carpenter's October 24th AOL chat here.



November 07, 2000

• Well, we should have known it was too good to be true. Word has it that the Region 1 (North American) DVDs are being delayed until late next year due to conflicts with syndication rights. At this time, Amazon is still taking pre-orders, but for some reason they're now listing the release date as January 1, 2010. Fear not - that's surely a mistake. Nonetheless, the DVD status is currently in limbo. We'll keep our eyes and ears out for news.

(Just a note: the Region 2 DVDs are still scheduled for a November 27th release. These can be pre-ordered from Amazon.co.uk or Sendit.com. These DVDs will only play in Region 2 DVD players, i.e. those in Europe, the Middle East, and Japan.)

Alyson Hannigan appeared on Merrick and Rosso, a national radio program in Australia on Triple J. Listen to her in streaming audio with Real Player here. (Thanks to Lachlan for the tip.)

Buffy Is Fit is giving away a copy of the Buffy novel Immortal. On the main page of their site, check out the update from November 4 for details.



October 30, 2000

Buffy DVDs are finally confirmed for the U.S.! Season One is scheduled for release in its entirety on January 9th, 2001. Though little information is available at this time, you can already pre-order at Amazon.com. (This refers to Region 1 encoded DVDs for the US and Canada.) To see what's included on the UK-released set, which one can only assume will be included on the North American version, click here. (If you're in an area such as the UK which uses Region 2 DVDs, you can also pre-order from that link.)

• Also scheduled for U.S. release on January 9th, 2001 are more episodes on VHS. The Slayer Chronicles Triple Pack will include "Bad Girls" & "Consequences," "Enemies" & "Earshot," and "Graduation Day Part One," & "Part Two." Pre-order the set now (or order individual videos) at Amazon.com.

Alyson Hannigan will be in Australia chatting at Take40.com on Thursday November 2nd at 4:00 EDST Australian time. (That's Wednesday November 1st at 9:00 p.m. Pacific.)

• Check out an interview with Sarah Michelle Gellar at IMDb.

Heat (a British magazine) printed a quote from Sarah Michelle Gellar saying, "I love my job, but I only have a year to go with Buffy. I think it's time to move on to more adult stuff." However, please take this with a grain of salt — the magazine doesn't mention where or when they got this so-called quote (it's not part of an interview), and it just does not sound like something Sarah would say (even if it were true). She's too business-savvy for that. And please don't email us about it; we don't know anything else.



October 18, 2000

• On Saturday October 28th, Emma Caulfield is scheduled to appear at Metro Entertainment in Santa Barbara, California to sign autographs and meet fans. For more information, email metrocomix@aol.com.

AGE 19 WHY HER? Made things even darker at Sunnydale by playing Buffy's double-crossing slayer, Faith. And with the comedy Bring It On and the thriller Soul Survivors, she's on her way to slaying Hollywood. WORK RITUAL "Before a scene, I must smoke a cigarette." MOST CREATIVE THING SHE'S EVER DONE "You've gotta see my house. I decorated it myself when I was only 17." BEST SET SOUVENIR "I love taking the backs of all my directors' chairs." WHO'S IT? "Russell Crowe, dude! He's definitely IT." NEXT Bring It On, due Aug. 18; Survivors in 2001.
A couple of notes: Bring It On is said to have been bumped to August 25. And it so happens that Jamie, too, thinks that Russell Crowe is IT. Great minds think alike. grin
