(SPOILER) The Hitch Hiker's Guide to Buffy the Vampire Slayer is only Mostly Harmless.

There's a quiz, a place for spoilers, a place for gossip, although much of this appears a bit outdated.. There's a copy of the Dead/Evil Lesbian Cliche FAQ...

"On second thought let's not go to Camelot. 'Tis a silly place." - Monty Python.

I don't visit the BBC's h2g2 pages very often, but I've read the book(s) and the entry on BtVS is disappointing. No h2g2-style whatsoever, and no explanation why it 'garnered a cult following'. Couldn't some prolific (and/or native English) BtVS/H2G2 fans do better?
Some time back now I participated in h2g2.com as one of their 'sub-editors' and it was a lot of fun. I'm not any longer. I am in no way affiliated with h2g2.com and haven't been really since before they became a part of bbc.co.uk. I still wish them the best of course.

When I was working with them, I learned very quickly that it was not DNA's intent nor was it the intent of those whom he hired to help him with h2g2 to integrate the voice of the books into an online form. He wanted h2g2 to be a community and a sincere source of information for people, about the culture of humanity. Basically he wanted US (humanity in general) to say more about ourselves & our planet than "Mostly Harmless."

H2g2 was ultimately unfunny though. I mean humor wasn't the plan. I do like looking at these pages & seeing two completely unrelated things which I enjoy find a way together. I guess that's why I felt it was linkable. You are right though in that there's room for improvement.
