At the heart of the first years of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer was the romance between Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), slayer of all things evil, and hunky Angel (David Boreanaz), the tortured vampire destined to walk the earth with a soul. The second season of Buffy took the Buffy-Angel pas de deux from ecstasy to agony in a now-classic plot arc that catapulted the show from WB teen drama to true TV greatness. You see, if the cursed Angel ever experiences true happiness for a moment, he'll revert to being an evil vampire again. And guess what happens after Buffy and Angel finally declare their love for one another and consummate their relationship... Buffy found its true momentum during the second season, as geeky Xander (Nicholas Brendon) fell in love with popular girl Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), Willow (Alyson Hannigan) gave up her crush on Xander in favour of werewolf boy Oz (Seth Green), and watcher Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) began a sweetly tentative relationship with computer teacher (and witch) Jenny Calendar (Robia LaMorte). Mayhem came to Sunnydale, though, in the form of evil vampires Drusilla (Juliet Landau) and Spike (drolly wicked James Marsters), who were more than ready to aid and abet Angel as he turned bad. It all sounds like horror-action mayhem (and there are great fight scenes), but Buffy took on its plotlines with amazing depth, intelligence, and humour. And oh, man, the love story! Buffy and Angel's tragic relationship is one of the most heartbreaking you'll ever find. Buffy's final dilemma finds her having to save the world at Angel's expense, and Gellar (who deserves a passel of Emmys for her work) is phenomenal at telegraphing Buffy's swirling conflicts between love and duty. This is some of the best TV ever made, period. --Mark Englehart

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Buffy 15 Jan 2004
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'High school is hell!' The Best Season by Far 14 July 2007
By Customer VINE VOICE
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 ›

By Jonathan Rowe VINE VOICE
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great content, so-so quality, mixed presentation 18 Jun 2001
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?

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series, but poor DVD execution 13 Jun 2001
By A Customer
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.
