Bite Me!, Nikki Stafford’s critical analysis of the show, was one of the bestselling and most critically acclaimed books on Buffy when it was released in 2002. Current up to season 6, the book examined Buffy’s development, and outlined the mythical, religious, and historical backgrounds to the episodes. Nikki’s guide to season 7 appeared in her Angel book, but there was never one place where fans could get their Buffy fix all in one place.

The success of the TV series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel have led to a number of published guidebooks both official and unofficial. Such books are used as sources of information, and opinions on the two TV series. The Official guides to Buffy. The Official guides to Buffy the Vampire Slayer offer a comprehensive guide to the show

Bite Me!: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Also I love the fact that this book also has a section on Buffy the vampire slayer.

Bite Me!: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The episode guide to this is very detailed and tells you things that you would not get from elsewhere like the watchers guide (although that too is very good).

It also includes short bios of the actors who play the other characters in the series-Xander, Willow, Cordelia and Angel. Fan-oriented, Bite Me! also provides information about how to join the best Buffy clubs and mailing lists, plus other information about how to get into Buffy's latest act. A must-have for all Buffy and Sarah Michelle Gellar fans.

When Bite Me! was first released in Fall 1998, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was two seasons old, the characters were still in high school, and Buffy had just killed her soul mate, Angel. Four years later, the show is still a smash hit and a critical darling; Angel has returned and then gone on to his own eponymous spin-off show; Buffy has graduated from high school, entered university, found a sister, lost her mother, and died only to be resurrected in the sixth season by her friends. Now on UPN, the former WB show is the top-rated non-WWF show on the network. It has appeared in almost every critics year-end top 10 list, and every time Emmy season rolls around and Buffy is snubbed again, critics use their column space to lambaste the academy for its shallow vision. Bite Me! includes:all the cast bios and episode guides from the original bookupdated bios of new cast members who have become major characters on the showan episode guide that features all six seasons of Buffycapsule reviews of the full first three seasons of Angel, with more emphasis put on the crossover episodes between the two shows.It will also look at how the show has affected popular culture, making its way onto university courses in the United States and spawning a book of academic essays.
  • I found this book to be biased and at times, incredibly inaccurate. Depending on the author's preference for the episode, you will get a longer and more detailed explanation with facts and commentary woven in. Same goes for the characters. We get it, you love Willow and think Alyson Hannigan was the real star of the show. The "Nitpick" portions of this book are what really bother me because it would appear this person has not actually WATCHED the episode in quite some time in order to make such incorrect summaries of what's going on. Examples include: "The Prom" nitpick: "At the beginning of the episode, Buffy walks into Angel's house and throws the curtains wide open, almost incinerating him. Doesn't she know better by now?" when in fact, they wake up together after a post-slayage nap and she is unaware that it is morning and this entire incident was accidental. Or "Life Serial" in which the comment is, "How did Buffy get into the demon bar with a bottle of alcohol? The bartender never would have allowed it, especially considering she's only 20" when in fact Spike orders drinks from the bartender and Buffy snags the bottle out of his hand, removing the stopper and chugging it. For someone who includes pages and pages of triva questions, they really don't seem to have their facts straight.

  • This book may be the best guide about Buffy around, but this not means that it's a stisfactory product. Because it's not.

    The enormous volume of pages dealing about parties, whatever, are useless. And, most importanyl, it lacks an index to the world of Buffy, something that would run something like this:

    "Willow" - Buffy's best friend. Went from a very shy girl to one one of the most powerful witches in the world, blá,bla;

    "Ethan" - Gile's old friend from England, when both them, along with some friends, dealed with the black arts. Appeared for the last time in the episode bla, bla, bla..."

    It would have been a huge task, but that was what I was looking for when I bought this book, and was dissapointed when I did not find it.

    The part of Angel I don't care, bcause I still did not watch this show (I intend to start buying the DVD sets).

  • Item arrived as described. Thank u.

  • Bite Me! is a fairly average bio on Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar. You get the background information on her career leading up to Buffy, but nothing revealing and it has appeared in countless other bios and is written in the dumbed down fanzine style. You also get episode reviews of the first couple of seasons but they are not enlightening. What saves this book is the info on the web sites, clubs and other stuff for fans to get involved. Also, there is a quiz and alot of color photos. If you like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Buffy and you don't own other bios on her, this book is as serviceable as any of the other bios out there. If you are really interested in the show, go with the Watcher's Guides as they are the definitive sources.

  • I bought this hoping for a remider of a series that I really liked. Instead I got episode summaries that were one or two sentences long. Overall it seemed that the writer really loved Willow but didn't care much for Buffy. Some facts and descriptions are incorrect. Certainly wouldn't recomend this book to anyone who wasn't already obsessed with Buffy.

  • love the episode reviews

  • Great book to read as you watch Buffy. As a noob to the Buffyverse I found it very insightful.

  • I am re-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and this book has been a great companion to the series. I have both the physical book and the Kindle edition. I'd recommend getting the physical book if your choosing between the two -- it's easier to use as a reference.
