I'm a tremendous BtVS fan. I ran a website from season 1, bought variant covers of the comics, still have a framed musical poster up.
So I was kind of disappointed when I heard the Motion Comic was being made without any of the original voices. They didn't even get the video game Buffy (yep, got the games too) to do her voice.
The voice actors have different inflections than the original cast. Sometimes they throw off the timing of a joke. Yet would I have preferred a non-Joss writer or a fake cast to read? Fake cast all the way.
So I still laughed a lot and re-remembered old jokes from the comics. This was my first time watching a "motion comic" and thought it was pretty cute - like comics for the even lazier. The zooms were neat, they would ocassionally have tears or blood rolling...a lot of zooming happened.
So its not new territory and its really long (19 comics x 15ish minutes each) but well worth sitting through. The only thing that caught me off guard when watching them all together was how often Buffy was teleported in season 8. I didn't realize it the first time since I was reading them as they came out but when you watch them all together you have to wonder - why doesn't she have some kind of Slayer Lo-Jack installed?
