I decided to give myself a break from Buffy. I watch it every night – it helps me fall asleep – from Season 1 to 7 and then back again. So, it’s been about 2 months since I’ve watched any and decided to go right into Season 7. Upon watching the episode “Him“, I stumbled upon a revelation!
“Him” aired in America on 5 November 2002. The episode featured The Shins’ “New Slang” and Coldplay’s, “Warning Sign“.
Garden State was reviewed at Sundance on 16 January, 2004 – and interestingly enough, featured “New Slang” in one of its pivotal scenes. Furthermore, Zach Braff’s, Last Kiss (released in 2006) featured “Warning Sign“, whilst Garden State used “Don’t Panic“.
While this may not stand up in a court of law – I think this is pretty concrete evidence that Zach Braff watched Buffy! He truly is – the perfect man.
