Most startling addition is the rogue slayer Faith, who manages to throw a serious spanner in Buffy's life, as well as almost killing Xander at one stage...
I wont give everything away! Big baddie for this season is the towns extremely amusing mayor (who tells his vampire minions to mind their language). For some obscure reason, he is immortal, and wants to "ascend". This is not good as you can imagine. of course, Buffy saves the day! You'll enjoy finding out how though.
Elsewhere this is very much a season where the characters come of age, in Willow and Xander's case in the same way that Buffy did in season two. It is a lot cleverer than that however, and it is difficult not to be touched by episodes like "Amends" and "The Prom". Willow begins the enormous change in her character this season, and we learn even more about Giles wild past.
They are also joined by a new regular in the talented Seth Green as the Werewolf Oz, guitarist and boyfriend to Willow. Also present still are the adorable Cordelia, and of course Angel.
Anyway, dont be put off by the lacklustre start to the season, Buffy reached a peak in season three. This DVD set will be a must buy for fans!
Incidentally, if the packaging is like the season two packaging, watch out. It's very pretty, but it can scratch your discs!
Season 3 has it all - the best villian, the best story arc and some of the all time best episodes. It's also the last season before we lost Angel and Cordelia to the spin-off.
A few highlights to whet your appetite
- ever wondered what Willow would be like as a vampire?
- ever wondered what Xander's real contribution to the gang is?
- ever wondered what happened to Spike?
- ever wondered what would happen if Buffy lost her strength?
- ever wondered if Xander and Cordelia can really last?
- ever wanted to see a showdown between two Slayers?
As for the main feature, the episodes themselves, these look and sound great. While not in widescreen format, this is the best Buffy has ever looked and a step up from the Season one and Two DVDs.... Read more ›
