Buffy gag reels: they're here!
If you have been following the DVD releases of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the UK, you will know that for each of the last few seasons the BBFC have rated a "gag reel" or "outtakes reel" as an extra to be included on the discs. You will also know that these gag reels have mysteriously failed to appear on the final release.
Well, now we know where they went. According to Buffy fan site The Watcher's Web, who have had access to a promotional copy of the upcoming Season 5 release, these latest discs contain a selection of 17 outtakes covering the first five seasons. It is reasonable to assume therefore that the previously rated material has all been put onto these discs.
Quite why Fox failed to mention this in their official announcement of the set is a mystery. Buffy: Season 5 is due for release on 28 October in the UK, and 27 November in Australia.
