"Sie" in German Buffy

I just happened to watch a snippet of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in German and found it rather amusing that Giles and Buffy use Sie to one another. It just seemed odd to me; they seemed more buddy-buddy to me than that.

Ah, the joys of having to translate from a language with fewer distinctions into one with more! (In this case, T-V.)
