I don't know why it took LA Weekly so long to get around to filing the definitive coverage of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion/panel discussion at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, and I don't care. Know why? Cause it's Buffy, mofos! What was shooting "Once More Feeling"-you know, "The Musical Episode"-like? "'I'm gonna go with fun,' says series creator Joss Whedon." He talks just like Xander! "'You guys are remembering this differently,' says James Marsters, who played Spike, the tormented vampire in love with Buffy. 'It was total terror from the cast.'" Love it! But what are their favorite things?
Marsters' favorite movie: Apocalypse Now; Sarah Michelle Gellar's is South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. Emma (Anya) Caulfield's is The Silence of the Lambs, and Seth (Oz) Green likes Raising Arizona. OMG! I freaking love Lambs! I could totally date her. Next, Seth hits on Amber Benson!
"'How about you?' he asks Benson, 'what do you like? Do you like movies? I like that dress. Wanna get out of here?'"
On-set hijinks? Hell yeah. "Green says he misses arriving at his trailer every morning to find that David Boreanaz had pooped in it. 'Left something in there for you, buddy,' Boreanaz would say." Then it gets sappy: "Whedon misses directing Gellar. Gellar misses the family, the cast and the crew. Being there when a crew member's child won a karate contest, for instance."
Then it gets hot and fetishy! "[Michelle] Trachtenberg misses sneaking into Gellar's trailer to pet her shoes."
I'm gonna pass out.
