    The title is due for release in October in R2. Probably November in R4.

    Here's the full list of Buffy Season 5 extra's on DVD Times
    Featurette: Buffy Abroad
    Featurette: Casting Buffy
    Featurette: Action Heros! The stunts of Buffy
    Featurette: Natural Causes
    Featurette: Spotlight on Dawn
    Featurette: Demonology - A Slayer's Guide
    Featurette: The Story of Season 5
    Gag reel (yeah, right)
    Commentary: Real Me - David Fury and David Grossman
    Commentary: Fool For Love - Doug Petrie
    Commentary: I Was Made To Love You - Jane Espenson
    Commentary: The Body - Joss Whedon
    Script: The Replacement
    Script: Fool For Love
    Script: Into The Woods
    Script: Checkpoint
    Various trailers
    I understand Gag Reels for seasons 2, 3 and 4 were certified by the BBFC, but none of them appeared on the discs in question, so it seems unlikely the season 5 one will appear.
    As previously stated, this is currently down as a 28th October release.

    Does anyone have any info on whether any of the episodes will be censored for the R2 release (any headbutts in season 5? [​IMG] )

    Headbutts are allowed if the series is certified above PG, which Buffy usually is

    Hang on? Why were the gag reels pulled? Is there a chance they're hidden in there somewhere as easter eggs?

    They were probably pulled because of the usual reasons. People wanted a lot of money fox wasn't willing to pay

    We all would be willing to payan extra $5 for them to be included I'm sure

    *sigh* It is depressing to know that Buffy 6 and Angel 3 are now out in their entirity on VHS here. I will *not* give Fox £150 just so I can avoid the wait until May 2003.
    I will NOT! [​IMG]

    NOthing to do with the BBC. Fox own satellite TV in this country. It's called a monopoly and it's evil.[​IMG]
    If they didn't stop the BBC from showing the series the way they do then we'd get Buffy on separate tapes at two eps a tape before satellite, the way Paramount did for ST:TNG... [​IMG]

    Are the R4 discs censored like the R2 ones? Or, are the R4 discs similar to R1 releases? Thanks.
