Many would say that the second series of BtVS is the most important and well-written. I would be inclined to agree in many ways - the season contains significant story arcs and events which are often mentioned in later seasons. The major events of this season are, obviously, the entry of Spike and Drusilla, Kendra, Ms Calendar; and the whole Angel thing which is, in my opinion, the most important storyline in Buffy history. Minor storylines are also introduced which become of more relevance in later seasons: Willow dabbles with Wicca, Xander starts to move on from Buffy and Giles is shown to feel human emotions! (No offence Giles!)
As well as being important for the serious fan's collection, Season 2 is great for the casual viewer as it provides simple entertainment as well as th plotlines, something which became more lax in the later seasons as the plot took over entirely. Brilliant stand-alone episodes include "Halloween", "The Dark Age" and "Bad Eggs".
The season is beautifully written, especially the final Buffy/Angel face-off which is very poignant and moving. A brilliant season of drama, action, comedy, sci-fi and great all-round entertainment!

Season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is quite possibly the best season of the bunch. While the series peters off rather a lot during its final two years the first few seasons truly remain emotionally resonant, beautiful, complicated and well written metaphors for the emotional trials of becoming an adult. Season 2 is by definition, where things get darker and more complex, this was the season that really made Buffy an unpredictably smart series. The beginning of the year starts off a little unsteady with several episodes that aren't really all that well formed. Yet despite a few shaky plots these early stories contain a lot of interaction between the main characters -- fun moments that really give the show its character-driven quality. The latter half of the season contains the best arc ever conceived in Buffyverse history with the emergence of Angelus. The season opens with 'When She Was Bad' which deals with the fallout of Buffy's momentary death in the previous year one finale; this episode, whilst not my favourite is appropriately handled and sees Buffy acting rather out of character after returning from her summer away from Sunnydale. The preceding episodes are a fun affair and help the viewer to settle back into the rhythm of the series with various episodes focusing upon certain characters. The 'Big Bads' of the season appear early on and come in the form of Drusilla and Spike, the former being a rather off-her-rocker vampire and the latter a bleached, leather wearing, cocky undead Englishman! As villains they are a lot of fun and help to shape season 2 as something unique and well constructed. However, come the end of the year things are considerably shaken up in terms of 'the Big Bads', with the appearance of Angelus.Read more ›

Format: DVD
In Season 2, Buffy the Vampire Slayer transformed from a cutesy tongue-in-cheek horror-fantasy romp into a TV milestone. Certainly, the show subsequently may have managed to equal highlights from this season but it has never managed to exceed them. Stand-out episodes are too many to mention, but the stellar quality comes from the slow-burning backplot of surprise reversals, unexpected deaths and an apocalyptic series finale. The ratcheting-up of tension, drama and moral seriousness never tips over into long-faced solemnity (as it does in later series) and the crisp, exciting storyline elicits a new calibre of performance from the young cast. This is the season that got us hooked on Buffy in the first place and it stays fresh, funny, alarming and provocative after many repeat viewings.
Cannot be praised highly enough.

I agree with other reviewers comments about the physical nature of the set - the disks are difficult to get out of the cardboard sleeves, and you do feel as if they could get scratched (I've bought a 3rd-party wallet to hold these and my series 1 disks). As regards the quality of the images/playback, I wonder if some of it down to the fact that the original media for seasons 1 & 2 was 16mm film? - they went onto something better for the later seasons. I agree that it's not the crispest DVD I've ever seen, but it doesn't seem any worse than the series 1 disks, and is certainly better than basic TV or VHS tape.
Of course, the content is excellent - there was a freshness and fun in these early seasons that has gone in the later ones, and the acting is excellent. Nicky Brendon really found his feet in this season, they find something to do with Cordelia, and you see the first sight of occasional characters such as Jonathan. But where's Harmony?

While Buffy season 2 was excellent and very much worth buying on DVD, this package has a few serious flaws that will hopefully be rectified by the manufacturer. First off, the packaging looks nice but is VERY poorly designed and actually SCRATCHES the DVDs as you take them in and out of the tight cardboard sleeves. Secondly, episodes 1 and 2 have SERIOUS mastering problems, as the picture often breaks up and goes all pixelated.
