Posted 20th May
Great news for those who like this programme! From the 1st June, you will be able to stream each of 144 episodes for free at All 4.


Channel 4 acquired the series (which will also air at 11pm every weeknight on terrestrial channel E4 from 1st June) via a licensing deal with the Walt Disney Company, which will give everyone a chance to visit the vampire-plagued streets of Sunnydale once again.

Featuring high-concept storylines involving vampires, demons, gods, twisted human villains and many more weird and wonderful creatures, the series was also renowned for its whip-smart dialogue, tight plotting and inventive one-off episodes, including a largely silent episode and a musical.

That was complete gibberish. And the only SJW objections here are from you, which is how this sort of thing works. People imagine some drama then get upset about it. Most counter-productive.

And you think nobody would have objected to lesbian characters on a family TV show two decades ago? That's not more of a problem than your fictional SJW objections? What would they be objecting to in a progressive programme? What do you think the term means?

I could not roll my eyes any harder.

Anyway, Buffy is cool. Watch Buffy.

Fantastic show, Buffy is definitely a babe

Hope they'll add Angel as well.

WIll it be the original versions or the "edited for tv" ones that basically ruined the show by cutting loads of little bits out?
Edited by: "evosquest" 20th May
Oh no - is it leaving Amazon?
Been watching it, but dunno if I will on All4 with ads...
Oh No! I'm supposed to be working at home during lockdown, where will I find the time to watch this? I'll just have to go without sleep for a while.

Clearly you didn't read what I wrote, or you just had a rant you had to get off your chest.
I thought I made it clear it was a good show?
Hope it is not as badly edited as the episodes of Scrubs currently on All4 - any kind of sex reference/joke completely erased, making for some jarring edits
Found 2 of those 5 twitter users.

I'll be quite surprised if it was that way, Channel 4 from what I can remember have never shown Buffy so I don't see why they wouldn't use the original showings.

I know when BBC showed it it was edited before anyone says anything.

Completely agree. I remember reading something about a possible remake a while ago. Hope they don't or I suspect it'll end up like the new version of Charmed.
Be warned about this.
If it's anything like The Shield, it will be terrible stretched widescreen rather than its original 4:3, made me want to cry.
Ended up just buying it for £16 on iTunes for the lot and even though it's still SD it looks loads better.

It is theoretical because you are talking about how people would react if it was made now.

They took the original SD version before post-production , applied some filters to upscale it to HD but didn’t reapply the post-production so it looks awful, in some seen you see Angel walk into what appears to be daylight because the the scene was originally darkened in post-prod. Also in a lot of shots, they look like their are made out of wax...
Boo put it on Disney+ or somewhere ad free
Sweet!
This was my favourite show when I was 12-16 back when it was first airing. Still holds up today. The first three seasons are absolutely brilliant. It gets a little too sitcomy after that for me, but lots of people think it gets better and better.
For years I've been wondering why none of the terrestrial channels showed this again as I haven't seen it in at least a decade, so it will be nice to re- acquaint myself with it.

Whenever someone says SJW , you can practically smell the ignorance radiating off them. Glad the biggest struggle in your life is getting angry at those hoping for equality, plus people love buffy. Because it is inclusive and cool as heck. Bye Felicia .

It wasn't stretched it was reframed, if it was stretched circles would ovals, faces would be wider and so on.

They scanned the film elements, unfortunately the results were extremely variable, from terrible framing, missing effects, and a crew completely obliviously to how certain shots should look:

facebook.com/not…343


The 16:9 versions are garbage, most of the issues would have been avoided if they'd kept to the original aspect ratio. The others could have been avoided with a copy of the DVDs next to the mastering monitors.
Unfortunately this all true there are even some shots with crew members and boom mics clearly visible as they were set up for the 4.3 ratio that being said if you can suspend disbelief it’s a coin toss as to which you’ll prefer. It does deserve a complete remaster though as it could be released today it’s so much better than the trash they serve up on cw etc anyway can someone release the west wing on blu ray?
Numfar! Do the dance of Joy!

Wow, there's some dreadful stuff in there. But it wasn't filmed with that in mind, or using film at all sometimes. The X-Files remaster is glorious because they filmed it cinematically from day one, I can understand why Fox would pull the stops out for re-doing SFX in that case, but to do it for shows like Charmed and not Buffy. That's weird.

When you get a number of people crying victim in the same breath as calling them a bunch of buzzword insults and somehow get away with it, then yes people have a problem with them. They complain things aren't inclusive enough by nitpicking some form of 'oppression' while telling people they don't like to form their own communities elsewhere. People would be a hell of a lot more supportive if certain people were less extreme and actually practised the empathy they claim to preach but only happen to show that to people that support them.

Respect is something that is earned. For those that show no respect for others, don't deserve respect in return. Nowadays we have increased rights because of strong people of the past. Yet people take the privileges we have for granted and are no longer strong characters, but instead have exaggerated self importance. It honestly baffles me how good most of us have it but manage to complain because our idea of a fairy tale utopia doesn't and can not exist. Life is hard, most people have their own struggles. Some of them just don't shove that down everyone else's throats or can not because they just end up getting blamed since they don't have a group defending them no matter what the situation is.

I agree, shoving and forcing narrative onto things that don't need it is awful. For example wonder woman is an amazing character with strength and integrity, what you want in a super hero, or black lightning, again doesn't victimise and has a grown up attitude with a strong cast, it's real and gritty like life.

With regret I’ve lost people due to the fact they have been harassed by people who can not seem to accept them- even though their lives are not a part of the others. Representation is important- I called out the use of SJW because it is so often used to harm minorities for asking for mere acceptance. Increased rights do not mean they are aknowledged by others. I have been attacked physically by a stranger, verbally harassed as have the majority of my minority friends. We are not kicking and screaming because we don’t get our way- we’re merely conversing on subjects because those we hold dear are dying. Please recognise that before sounding off .

Also- please not the term SJW was coined by an American Alt right group (neos) as an attack on minority group people. So - baring that in mind and baring in mind our ancestors literally fought against these people losing their lives for us- perhaps not great to adopt it
