Description

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a TV phenomenon - critically acclaimed and hugely popular throughout the world. Adhering to Virgin's successful programme-guide format and the style of the first two editions. Slayer contains a complete episode-by-episode guide to all five seasons, with each episode broken down into recurring categories to draw attention to details that might otherwise be missed by viewers. Bestselling author Keith Topping also unearths pop culture references and soundtrack information, serves up the best lines of dialogue and exposes continuity errors, while also managing to analyse the show's subtexts and serious issues. In addition, he provides a section on the Buffy novels, background essays and a useful Internet section - all in a style that captures the unique humour of the show. Vampires, violence, passion, non-conformism and teenage angst - this is the essential guide for both casual fans and the most devoted.show more

Colour me stunned' Uncut - 'Highly Recommended' Dreamwatch. - 'Fans will adore it' TV Zoneshow more
