Buffy: The Vampire Slayer - Watch the Drums
In the pilot episode, Buffy and the gang go to the Bronze. A band is playing, but the music isn't synced with actions. This is especially obvious when there is a drum roll.

I think you should keep in mind that this was on a very low budget... it was the first production ever! I mean.. compare the way that vampire was dusted to the way they are all dusted now... The guy looked like he'd been attacked with flower for Christ sake! Anyways.. my point is I'm sure that was an irrelevant mistake because all they wanted to do was project the idea of the characters which is why no special effects or sound effects were used at ALL in the pilot episode.

Apparently the drum kit in the Bronze set is very old and creaks every time someone touches it. The microphones pick this up, so whoever is playing the drums has to do a very good mime performance (well, so does everyone else considering all the music is prerecorded, but the poor drummer can't even touch the instrument...)

In a quote from Darling Violetta drummer Steve McManus ""I saw it and was like, you're kidding me, And every ounce of it squeaked, so when they brought the sound down in the hall so that they could do dialogue, I was sweating buckets. You couldn't touch it; I was doing my best Milli Vanilli." And from lead singer Cami Elen "You would never know it, but that drum kit is hammered, I think it's been dragged behind a Mack truck."

A piolet episode is not completley edited. Thats why its a piolet episode. When the frist episode of the season airs it is slightly different and some of the charactors have changed. All the piolet is for is to try to sell the show to channels.

If that's a problem for you, don't ever watch any movie or T.V. show that features any kind of singing or musical instrument. "Sam" didn't match up his movements in "Casablanca", either. The only ones who do are the ones who are talented enough to actually play...Dudley Moore in "Arthur", Holly Hunter in "The Piano"...etc.
