Buffyverse shoutouts in ’The Inside’ Tv Show

Wednesday 15 June 2005, by Webmaster

Attention, fans of Joss Whedon’s "Angel" and "Buffy": Watch for subtle references to both shows on Fox’s "The Inside," which was created by "Angel" writer/producer Tim Minear. A criminal wore a T-shirt that said "Wolfram" in the show’s Wednesday premiere (a shoutout to "Angel’s" law firm, Wolfram and Hart). In the third episode of the show, there’s a minor character named Angel who goes missing, as well as a prominent reference to the "Buffy" musical, "Once More With Feeling." See if you can spot it.

    It would be nice if this show were able to stand on it’s own merits. Not just because they play on the susceptibility of Buffy fans who seem to support any and every project that comes from anyone who had anything to do with the show.

    I agree with the above comments but I noticed in the pilot epi there was a line: ’lurk much?’ ..I believe Dawn said that to Spike once when she was sneaking out. Spikes reply: I’m standin about..its a whole different vibe.
  • If you believe these tips of the hat to what has gone before are cheap efforts to support the show, you problably don’t believe in Santa either! We all know Buffy is vacationing in Italy with her fren The Imortal and when she comes back Tim’s gonna have her kick your butt!!

    Well the writers had a LARGE part in the sucess of Buffy and Angel. They simply rock at telling a good story. I would have watched it simply for that, the buffy references simply make me smile.

    What can I say, we’re just an insanely dedicated fan base.

  • Plus Danny (AKA Adam Baldwin aka Jayne)’s gloves are the same as the "two by two gloves of blue" guys.

    I agree. I enjoy Buffy references too, but let this show create it’s own world. At least for the first half of the season and then start to "wink" at the audience. Right now it looks like a cheap way to recruit Buffy fans to watch.

  • Amber Benson will also guest star in an episode titled "The Perfect Couple". She’ll play Allison Davis. No airdate yet.
  • The one woman character with dark hair played in the ’Wonderfalls’ that Tim did. Katie Finneran. She was blond in that show.

    Don’t forget about Camden! In the preview for the show it shows Camden Toy in the background as one of the villians. I missed the preview, so did anyone see if he was in that episode?

    I saw the first episode, and thought it was just "okay". However, the points in this forum are valid. Let’s face the facts, this is an article posted on a Buffy news site. The article points out Buffy references in a previous episode and a FUTURE episode. Again, this is a BUFFY NEWS site with an article that points out FUTURE Buffy references on a show produced and written by key Buffy writers.

    So the answer is YES they are trying to get Buffy fans to watch based on BUFFY connections and references.

    Will & Grace actually made a number of references to Buffy over the years, which was pretty cool.
