Thank you all for welcoming me.
I have a question. Do you watch Buffy in German or English?
Hi Angie, good question. I started watching it when it was on TV, so it was dubbed. For a long time I didn't have a DVD player or a DVD drive on my computer so I actually bought the video cassettes from the UK when they came out, which was the only way to get an original version back then. It was a whole new world to me, because so much of the humour of the show depends on the language. Nowadays when I have to watch it in German (with other people who like the show but don't speak English) it is almost painful to me because so much of the humour gets skewered by the dubbing. It makes me realise how much of the performance of an actor has to do with his or her voice as well.
I've owned the DVDs for years now, which makes it possible to enjoy the audio commentaries and all the extras.
