Product Description

Product Description

Three-volume box set containing the closing eleven episodes from the fourth season of the popular teen fantasy. 'A New Man' sees Giles transformed into a demon after a night out with Ethan Rayne; with the whole gang unable to recognise him, Giles is forced to turn to Spike for help. 'The I in Team' finds Buffy being introduced to the Initiative group through Riley, but can she trust Riley's mentor Professor Walsh? In 'Goodbye Iowa', Riley starts to fall apart, and even has doubts regarding his relationship with Buffy. 'This Year's Girl' sees Faith out for revenge after waking from the eight-month coma induced by Buffy, and in 'Who are You', Faith finds her perspective on life altered when she takes over the Slayer's body. 'Superstar' sees Buffy beginning to doubt whether cool kid Jonathan is really as perfect as he seems, and becoming suspicious regarding the new monster in town. In 'Where the Wild Things Are', the gang come up against a gang of sexually repressed poltergeists who have gone into overdrive. 'New Moon Rising' sees Willow and Tara's relationship under threat with the return of Oz. In 'The Yoko Factor', Angel follows Buffy back from Los Angeles to apologise, only to get into a fight with Riley. 'Primeval' sees Riley enslaved by Adam, who is using Spike to create dissension in the gang. Finally, in 'Restless', the gang experience some very strange dreams after a night in at Buffy's.

From Amazon.co.uk

In Season 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sunnydale high school is left behind in smoking ruins and Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) becomes a college freshman at the (fictitious) University of California Sunnydale campus. The major arc of the season involves a semi-sinister Man from U.N.C.L.E.-type government agency known as The Initiative which has its Bond-style HQ under the campus. Their nefarious plans involve capturing vampires and demons, including the now-regular character Spike (James Marsters), and hacking them to pieces for assembly into a Frankensteinian supermonster or fitting them with chips that mute their killing urges. Buffy's plank-like new boyfriend Riley (Mark Blucas) is deadweight, Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) is shoved into new corners of irrelevance (and turns folkie!), Willow (Alyson Hannigan) breaks up with the werewolf (Seth Green) and comes out, Xander (Nicholas Brendon) whines about not being a student but starts dating a former demon (the amusing Emma Caulfield), Angel (David Boreanaz) has his own series but drops in for crossovers (you will need to buy the Angel box sets to find out how some key plot lines pay off) and previously killed or comatose semi-regulars pop in for dreams or revivals. A run of shaky episodes starts off this season, with the show seemingly uncomfortable with the new setting as it treads water with the same old monsters. This set starts to pick up, however, with a few well-above-average episodes, the stand-out being "Hush". This is a rare attempt for the show at being truly scary, featuring Nosferatu-like demons who glide around robbing people of their voices and force all the characters who have been evading the truth to open up to each other through non-verbal communication. The big plot, spread over the bulk of the episodes, is less interesting than the major arcs of the last two seasons, perhaps because Buffy's new love interest and new nemesis both fail to make much of an impression. This also tends to leave Sarah Michelle Gellar in the shadows of the show she is supposed to be starring in--her best 42 minutes in this series ("Who Are You") comes when she is possessed by bad girl Faith and can cut loose a bit. Mildly wobbly after the last two years, Buffy is still hanging in there and making an absurd premise pay off. --Kim Newman

The much maligned Season 4 was still a damn sight better than anything else broadcast last year. Thing is, BtVS had set it's standards so high that it was inevitable that there would come a season that didn't quite hit those same highs.
The main reason for this was the lack of a Big Bad worthy of the title! Previous seasons had given us the Master, Spike Dru and Angelus, and the Mayor and Faith - all villians that we loved for their charisma as much as we hated them for what they did to the Scoobies! Adam, Maggie Walsh and the Initiative were difficult to warm to, and Adam was never really given enough screen time to make a true impact.
Having said that, the second half of season 4 contained some outstanding episodes with only a couple missing the mark. This set kicks off with Giles getting in touch with his demonic side in 'A New Man', Buffy asking all the wrong kind of questions in 'The I In Team', and of course Faith awakening from her coma ready for revenge against Buffy ('This Year's Girl'). The twist at the end of that amazing episode sets up the second of the two parter (the Joss Whedon written and directed 'Who Are You') perfectly and allowed Sarah Michelle Gellar and Eliza Dushku a real opportunity to cut loose, making for one of the best Buffy's EVER!
Oz's return is dealt with in 'New Moon Rising' as he discovers that everything is not as he left it! The final three shows of the season matched any and all of the finales of the previous three seasons. 'The Yoko Factor' has Spike turning the Scoobies against each other, 'Primeval' has them reunited in their battle against Adam and features a demon/Inititive battle of epic proportions!

Season 4 of BTVS turned out to be one of the weakest seasons to date mainly due to the underdevelopment of relationships and characters. True, there are the occasional episodes which rate among the best but the forced relationship between Riley and Buffy and the observation that she uses him as nothing less than a sex toy shows that the relationship onscreen lacks depth. Also, Adam (the bid bad evil) was terribly disappointing considering the potential he had. The writers seemed to forget the series needed a bad guy until the last 4 episodes but hey, thats life. There are stand outs however such as the 2 faith episodes and also the Yoko factor. Notable is the prophetic, possibly confusing season finale which leaves a lot of avenues open for season 5 and beyond. Despite its faults, still worth the money for the better episodes, even if not an avid fan....

I don't know what people have been complaining about... Personally I think Season 4 is the best season so far. Josh Whedon is really starting to push the limits of the American censorship. I like how the characters are developing from teens to young adults. I like the friction, the sexuality and the new views of the characters. But most of all I like... nay... love, Spike's role in this season. It gives 'the big bad' a new dimension. This season made Buffy stand even more apart from other shows than it already had. Look at episodes such as Hush, something blue and Restless... exciting, well written and intelligent.
I feel sad I can only give this box set 5 stars :)

I have to say that this season is one of the best. "Beer Bad" was a bit of a disappointment as it came across as a bit dull. The rest of this season though was great. As we've come to expect, it has humour, drama, violence and gore. The puns are just as good as ever so I would be surprised if you don't want to watch this more than twice. If you look deeper into it, theres also life stories in the plots so it would make you think at the end of it. I would recommend that ANYONE buy this and all the other seasons - even those who buy it for the first time will soon be hooked and begging for more. My rating? 10/10.

Buffy - one truly amazing show. It's forth season - mind-blowing. Anyone who is looking for some good entertainment just has to watch buffy. Alot of people love moaning about it - what they should be doing is talking about the brilliance of it. And the brilliance surely comes out in this box set. Delivering episodes created by the masters behind the show- the season starts off with 'The I team' in which Riley's secretly evil boss plots her way to Buffy's death. Of course our heroine can fight against that but Miss proffesor Walsh can't fight against her demon/human/robot Adam who gives her 'the stab.' That doesn't mean that Buffy's troubles are over though because 'Faith is awke.'- yep, out of the coma buffy put her in and ready to kill. But she'd rather have some fun with a neat little devise the Mayor left her which enables her to switch with Buffy - switch bodies that is. But yet again Buffy manages to get things back the way they were. But Faith is taken away, but only as far as Los Angeles where our Dark brooding vamp lives... Joss Whedon - the creator instead of finishing the season off with a bang had finished the excitement on the second to last episode and created an amazing dream episode in which we get to see into the characters dreams which slips out some secrets that we never knew about the gang, and riddle style information on what is to come in the next season. Five stars all the way: a truly breathtaking collection.
