    Here's my first reaction......NOOOOOOO! NOT BUFFY!!!!! I was looking forward to the season with Glory in it.[​IMG] I hope that if this news is true, that the delay is not a long one.

    Well, I emailed my Fox PR contact and asked if the two sets were delayed and received a 1 word response:

    "Nope"

    So either The Bits has information that hasn't made its way around the company, or the delay is just a rumor.

    I really wish they'd just go ahead and rush the final seasons of Buffy out. Give us S5 in December, S6 in January or February, and S7 shortly after.

    I'm dying to finally get to see "Once More With Feeling."

    Ooooooooh Glorifica, she's so gorgeous she could be a goddess. [​IMG] Buffy S5 is probably my favorite due to the Glorifica theme and Clare Kramer. Glory in my opinion was Buffy's greatest nemesis (not counting Angelus, aka Evil Angel) followed closely by Calab(S7). They made Adam(S4) seem like a poor joke. [​IMG]
    I sure hope it's not delayed. [​IMG]

    I just took a look on Fox's official site foxtvdvd.com and they say coming soon (12-9-03). So I wonder where the Digital Bits got there info.


    Michael thanks for changing the title I thought about adding a question mark before posting but I forgot.

    Sounds like the rumor of delay was perhaps in reference to the sixth season. The Digital Bits says:

    My reluctant with Angel is that the few minutes I've seen of it, it looks like a less... oh this is going to sound silly ... it looks less like a realistic universe than the one Buffy is set in. I mean, in Buffy, the vamps and such stick to the nighttime, but it is a perfectly normal town otherwise.

    But as I understand it, in Angel there's bartenders with horns and stuff? I mean, I appreciate that it is set in LA, but...

    There's a demon bar in Buffy, too. Besides, there really are bartenders with horns in LA.

    I would say that Angel is less consistent than Buffy in terms of how aware the general public is of the demon/vampire situation. It's a minor thing, but it does bug me on occasion.

    I thought both shows are pretty consistent. Everyone knows, but they don't talk about it. It's sort of a dirty secret.
