FAQs

NEW: What’s with the time changes!? WHAT IS THIS!?!?!
It’s very simple. I’m on my own with the rewatch here, and I completely forgot about what my schedule would be like once August came. For this reason, I need to get through the rewatch by mid-August, as well as my live involvement. Of course, there are plenty of people doing the rewatch and it can still go on autonomously without my involvement.

Where do we watch the Buffy Rewatch? What channel is it on?
Whip out your DVDs, get on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or whatever other ways you can watch. Y’know, legally. Ahem.

What time does Buffy and Angel Rewatch start? When!?
Buffy Rewatch usually begins at 8pm EDT. That’s Eastern Daylight Savings Time! So the time is technically 7pm EST. It’s UTC -4. That’s 5pm in California, or Tuesday at 10am in Australia. If you don’t know what time 8pm EDT would be in your timezone, google “What time is it in New York?” and then check the time difference.

What if there’s a change in the schedule?
This is a possibility. Some weeks we may add more episodes or even add TWO days for that week. Make sure to check this page frequently for any changes. For the most part, if you’re following @BonelessThurs on Twitter, you should be okay.

Is there a break between the episodes in the rewatch!? I needs tuh pee!
Look, we can’t micromanage the breaks and the literal, exact time people playback the episodes. But for the most part, we want everyone to be watching the same parts of an episode relatively at the same time. That’s why I like to say that the episodes should start at every 45 minute mark. That gives you about 90 seconds to run and get that second cup of soda or a short potty break or even switch DVDs (which isn’t much time, I apologize). But it’s not the end of the world if you don’t start at the exact same time. Don’t worry!

How do I talk to other people!?
Follow @BonelessThurs and make sure to read the #BuffyRewatch tag on Twitter. We also had, and probably will continue to have, a live chat of sorts here, if you don’t want to spam your followers. But please spam them. We need to trend again!

Who the heck are you? I don’t want to talk to you! People are the worst.
Hello, my name is Michael. And I created a TV blog. Most of the point of Buffy Rewatch is to watch with other people, like we couldn’t 15 years ago. So, I understand that you can watch your DVDs whenever you want or that you can watch more than 3 episodes in one week or night. But it’s scheduled so that the masses can be able to do the rewatch!
