"25 Extraordinary Years" - The Paley Center Festival in Pictures. The history of the William S. Paley Television Festival in pictures. Check out 1998 to see that 2008 wasn't the first time the Paley honored BtVS.

I like the way everyone is lined up in order of descending height.

Some of us spend all of Comic-Con arranged that way, actually. It's very challenging.
Nice to see color photography finally being introduced in 2001, although I guess it took another couple of years to get those focusing problems ironed out . . . But I jest because I love - there are many wonderful pics here, reminding us that there have been an awful lot of great shows (not just Whedon ones, either) on TV.
It's a shame that they're not available to buy on DVD (with a few exceptions) as I'd love to see the ones for BSG, Chuck and Veronica Mars.
I remember seeing a transcript (or maybe just an excerpt of a few questions) of the '98 panel ages ago. No idea where that might be now (or was then).
Anyone who can make it to the Paley Center will be able to watch a recording of the 1998 panel. The panel is part of a double-bill with Innocence (and watching that so soon after Once More With Feeling really brought home just how good Sarah Michelle Gellar is). Although I really enjoyed last year's reunion I'd have to say that the 1998 panel seemed much more fun and interesting.

On the Paley front, there might be a few postings once everyone sees the line-up for this year's Paleyfest....
I would love to see this panel ! and the Friends one, and SFU, and Ally McBeal...
The list of shows is really impressive.

Yeah, but every time I tell to my cellphone "Beam me up Scott" it didn't works.
It makes me sad to see all the great shows we've lost over the years. (This from the girl who can't get over Pushing Daisies.)
What does the "dancing with the stars" panel right at the top tell us about the selectivity of this lovely organization? I've seen both panels and enjoyed them, but not sure if being honored by this group is in and of itself a particularly revealing thing. Wish Buffy had a Peabody.
Well, Green Queen, this year's Paley Fest will include the showing of the final three episodes of Pushing Daisies. Visit the Paley Center website for more information, and dates.
That was a very nice stroll through history.
