Box set containing episodes 1 to 11 from the sixth season of the popular teen fantasy. In 'Bargaining - Part 1' Willow repairs the Buffybot and tries to hide the news of Buffy's death. 'Bargaining - Part 2' has the real Buffy return to the world of the living. 'Afterlife' finds Buffy realising that she preferred the afterlife to the rigors of everyday vampire slaying. 'Flooded' sees Buffy dealing with burst pipes and stray demons. 'Life Serial' has our heroine tested by the Troika. 'All the Way' finds Dawn partying with some teenage boys who turn out to be vampires. 'Once More With Feeling' sees all of Sunnydale's inhabitants breaking into song. 'Tabula Rasa' has one of Willow's spells misfire and cause an outbreak of extreme amnesia. 'Smashed' finds Willow becoming more and more addicted to magic. 'Wrecked' sees Buffy growing concerned about Willow's behaviour. Finally, in 'Gone', Buffy gets struck by an invisibility ray.

From Amazon.co.uk

Buffy the Vampire Slayer--Season 6 begins with Buffy being raised from the dead by the friends who miss her, but who fail to understand that a sacrifice taken back is a sacrifice negated. Dragged out of what she believes to have been heavenly bliss, she finds herself "going through the motions" and entering into a relationship with the evil, besotted vampire Spike just to force her emotions.

Willow becomes ever more caught up in the temptations of magic; Xander and Anya move towards marriage without ever discussing their reservations; Giles feels he is standing in the way of Buffy's adult independence; Dawn feels neglected. What none of them need is a menace that is, at this point, simply annoying--three high school contemporaries who have turned their hand to magical and high-tech villainy. Added to this is a hungry ghost, an invisibility ray, an amnesia spell and a song-and-dance demon (who acts as rationale for the incomparable musical episode "Once More With Feeling" presented here in its full extra-length version). The result is a Buffy season which fans may not entirely have loved, but could not ignore. --Roz Kaveney

Following on from a cataclysmic finale to Season 5, Season Six of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" takes the series into a new direction altogether. This season is less preoccupied with large-scale demonic villainy, but relies more on the relationships between the characters as the source of much of the action and drama.
After Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) died at the end of last season saving the world, the rest of the gang are finding it hard to survive in Sunnydale without her. But Willow (Alysson Hannigan), who is becoming an increasingly powerful witch, has a plan to bring the Slayer back from the dead.....
When Buffy crawls out of her own grave, she finds re-adjusting to the land of the living much more difficult than she could have anticipated. Her hardest challenge, and the recurring theme of this season, is simply being an adult. Lost, she turns to neutered but still evil vampire Spike (James Marsters) for comfort. It doesn't help that her friends are preoccupied with their own difficulties.
Her mentor Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) returns to England, feeling Buffy will never become a responsible grown-up so long as he's around. Her sister Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg) flounders and turns to thieving to try and get some attention. Willow's Wiccan lover Tara (Amber Benson) worries about her girlfriend's overuse of magic and is forced to leave her. Meanwhile Xander (Nicholas Brendon) is reluctant to announce his impending marriage to the feisty Anya (Emma Caufield), as he inwardly questions whether he really made the right choice proposing to her...
Conflicted and vulnerable, the gang fall prey to the whims of a trio of slackers (Adam Busch, Danny Strong and Tom Lenk).

Like some of the other reviewers, it has to be said that I initially hated Season 6, but after giving it a second go, I realised it was a lot better than I remembered.
Bargaining Parts I & II (8/10)
A good way to start things off, I particularly liked the teaser sequence. Granted the Hellians were very poor, and the awfully lame "that thing" attempt at secrecy aside, a good episode with great performances by all the main cast.
Afterlife (9/10)
One of my personal favourites, very dark indeed, but also with a good bit of humour thrown in (chiefly from Emma Caulfield).
Flooded (6/10}
Highly filler-worthy ep. Not the best way to introduce the Trio at all, and the Mmm-fashnik demon was straight out of Season One. A nice idea to throw in the money worries to give it the series a bit of realism, but on the whole not brilliantly handled.
Life Serial (8/10)
Strong episode that takes a while to get into. I liked the idea of the tests and it was nice to see a good Buffy-only episode again. One thing that struck me about this episode was Tara. Why did she just leave Buffy like that? And does she talk about anything but Willow ever?
All The Way (4/10)
Poor. Other than the odd nice scene, very predictable and mundane. This ep seemed like an afterthought to me, as if they were determined to have at least Dawn-centric episode regardless of the actual plot.
Once More, With Feeling (10/10)
Absolutely brilliant. Great songs, great story. Everything just fitted so well in this episode. It would have been nice to see what Willow was thinking though, as she seemed to take rather a backseat throughout.
Tabula Rasa (10/10)
Another fantastic episode. Perfectly achieving the balance between drama and comedy.

People have been saying that Season 6 was rubbish, due to the lack of "big bad," the way that the characters went in different directions, the relationships that certain characters developed, but this season was mostly about growing up. Maturity is the main theme in most of the episodes and this affects all of the scoobies, each one having to come to terms with some life changing events. In earlier seasons, Joss Whedon, the creator, has always placed monsters and demons where real life problems might be, but here, Joss has taken away the monster element and opened these characters to the real world. There are real things happening to these characters, Buffy is unemployed and looking after Dawn. Willow learns about the hardness of addiction and finds herself shutting people out from her life. This is just the tip of the iceberg as the season has so many twists and turns you really don't know what's going to happen next. Season 6 is sexier, edgier, darker and a lot more mature than past efforts. This is one of my favourite seasons of any television show, this is a must have.

Season 6 of Buffy kick starts with the slayer being brought back in a spooky ritual by Willow, with the rest of the scoobies in tow. The first few episodes set the focus for Buffy coming to terms with her grave issues. This season overall is on a far mature level, darker, but with the occasional humour. The episode "Once More With feeling" was fantastic. It leaves you mesmirised and you are under the spell of the cast, as they dance and perform. Then you have other issues being explored, such as Willow going off the rails and needing help in her magick addiction. Tara's development is interesting. She is more independent now and has much more of a say in the plot. There are some very touching scenes between Willow and herself.
Buffy's character develops as well. She has to face adult responsibilities now such as caring for Dawn, who is needy and insecure at the start of the season. Buffy also has some insecurities to face herself. Her character can be mislead at times and she gives into her desires, but she is then strong Buffy again.
Spike fans will either totally love him, or totally hate him this season. There is some very interesting character development going on with him and James Marsters acting is to be credited, as well as the rest of the cast, certainly Sarah Michelle Gellar.
I would recommend that every Buffy fan buys parts one and two of this season. We have watched the characters mature ( or not as the case may be!) and grow and learnt to like these characters. I think that true Buffy fans will appreciate all that the characters have been through and the connections with the characters that makes then grow into strong sassy individuals!
Go and Buy this boxset and enjoy!
P.S.Some old Sunnydale buddies will be making appearances. Remember Amy? The "bad boys" of the season will amuse you greatly. There is some really convincing acting, from all cast members.
