Note that extras tied to specific episodes are reviewed with those episodes.

Disc 3

Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Panel Discussion is a discussion with Joss Whedon, Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan, James Marsters, Michelle Trachtenberg, Raymond Stella, Carey Meyer, and Marti Noxon. There was a light tone with Joss Whedon and Nicholas Brendon dominating most of the discussion. There are major spoilers throughout the sixth season and minor spoilers for the seventh season, although it might be more accurate to say that an inside joke or two from the third episode of the seventh season refers back to this panel discussion. Insights include.

Disc 6

Life Is the Big Bad - Season 6 Overview focused on character arcs rather than on key episodes like most of the season overviews do. There are interviews with Joss Whedon, David Fury, Jane Espenson, Douglas Petrie, David Solomon, Steven S. DeKnight, Michelle Trachtenberg, Drew Z. Greenberg, Rebecca, Rand Kirshner, Alyson Hannigan, and Adam Busch. There are spoilers through the end of the season.

DVD-ROM Buffy Demon Guide, when I finally managed to convince my computer to run it, was little more than a brief summary of various villains who appeared on the show. There was a mild spoiler for the seventh season slipped in.

Outtakes is a short collection of flubbed lines and goofing off on the set. It focused on Nicholas Brendon and Emma Caulfield, but it also had a little from Alyson Hannigan, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Anthony Stewart Head. Sarah Michelle Gellar, James Marters, Amber Benson, Adam Busch, Danny Strong, and Tom Lenk apparently are perfect on the set.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Television with a Bite covers Joss Whedon and the history of his concept. It starts by discussing the original film, pitching the show to various networks, and casting the show. It continues by summarizing the first six seasons. There are interviews with Sarah Michelle Gellar, James Marsters, Joss Whedon, Gail Berman, Anthony Stewart Head, Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan, David Boreanaz, Marti Noxon, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Emma Caulfield. It is of interest for being just about the only DVD extra to include interviews with Sarah Michelle Gellar and for summarizing various insights that one could get from various other extras. It includes scenes from the first episode of the seventh season.
