Product Description

Product Description

Box set containing episodes 12 to 22 from the sixth season of the popular teen fantasy. In 'Potential' Buffy begins to puts the would-be slayers through their paces. 'The Killer in Me' has the gang discover some clues which makes them doubt Giles. 'First Date' sees Buffy out on a dinner date with Principal Wood. 'Get it Done' finds the gang watching a puppet show with unexpected consequences. In 'Storyteller' Buffy and friends become the subject of a documentary. 'Lies My Parents Told Me' reveals secrets about Spike's relationship with his mother. 'Dirty Girls' has Faith return to Sunnydale. 'Empty Places' finds the potential slayers siding with Faith against Buffy. 'Touched' sees Spike on the trail of the rejected Buffy. In 'End of Days' Buffy discovers the scythe which was created to kill the last pure demon. And finally, in 'Chosen', the last 'Buffy' episode ever, Willow tries to cast a spell that will deal with the problem of Buffy's successor.


So that's it. The second half of Buffy the Vampire Slayer's seventh and last series confirms what we'd always half-suspected--that the whole arc of the show would turn out to be Buffy's education to the point where she makes a momentous world-saving and world-changing decision. Buffy was always a show about female empowerment, but it was also a show about how quite ordinary people can decide to make a difference alongside people who are special. And it was also a show about people making up for past errors and crimes. So, for example, we have the excellent episodes "Storyteller"--in which the former geek/supervillain Andrew sorts out his redemption while making a video diary about life with Buffy--and "Lies My Parents Told Me"--in which we find out why a particular folk song sends Spike crazy. Redemption abounds as Faith returns to Sunnydale and the friends she once betrayed, and Willow finds herself turning into the man she flayed. Above all, this was always Buffy's show. Sarah Michelle Gellar does extraordinary work here both as Buffy and as her ultimate shadow, the First Evil, who takes her face to mock her. This last set is the fine ending to one of television's most remarkable shows. --Roz Kaveney

Buffy the Vampire Slayer has probably surpassed many people's expectations as TV series - despite having a small audience, the show and its stars have become modern pop culture icons. Last year they grew up, dealt with sex, death and addicition. As this season starts, all the characters must come to terms with their demons.
Buffy is now training Dawn, and gets a job as a student counsellor; Xander gets all professional and successful; Willow learns to cope with her power; Anya struggles to get into the vengeance game again; and Spike is insane in the basement.
Season Seven is the shows most consistently entertaining season since Season Three. The re-building of Sunnydale High, the return of the Hellmouth and the re-introduction of standalone stories gives it a back to basics feel. This is quick-witted stuff, never failing to be dramatic or emotional, but always keeping the cheeky humour. The first 11 episodes set up what will become the seasons main story arc, involving the re-opening of the Hellmouth. There are some dark hints, building to pretty horrific clues, about what exactly the Scooby gang will be facing at the end of the season.
There isn't a single episode in this collection that I would call less than "very good". The show has wavered in the past, but here, Buffy's on top form. Single best episode from this collection? Possibly Selfless - Buffy and Anya come to blows, with Anya being a murdering demon and all.

Selecting four episodes from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" to represent the Angel volume in the "The Slayer Collection" has an advantage over most of the others in the set because they only have to look at the first three seasons. Given the premise of the collection "Angel" from the first season is an obvious choice, because that is where Buffy finds out that Angel is really a vampire. "Innocence" from the second season is another given because that is where Angel turns into Angelus after achieving a moment of pure happiness after spending the night with Buffy." "Amends" from season three, where Angel is tortured by the First, who sends visions of his victims to haunt him, was the episode Joss Whedon submitted for Emmy consideration that year and makes for a nice final choice. The one I would quibble with is "I Only Have Eyes for You," in which Angel and Buffy are possessed by a pair of tortured ghosts.
In terms of performances that episode has one of David Boreanaz's best (Angel gets possessed by the female ghost), but I cannot believe that what I consider the single best "BtVS" episode ever, "Becoming, Part II," is not included in either this set or the Buffy one (which has "Becoming, Part I"). The argument could be that two Angelus episodes out of four would be a bit much, which would scratch "Passions" as well, but then the only other episode in the running would be "The Prom." So, on balance, they did not do too bad of a job with putting this one together. Of course, ultimately "The Slayer Collection" is for those who are not die-hard fans, who will want to own each complete season on DVD, but for those who want the choice episodes to watch when they want. In that regard, three out of four is not bad.

This is a fantastic little set, which contains some of my favourite Buffy episodes ("I Only Have Eyes For You", "Doppelgangland", "Wild At Heart"). If you can't afford the series boxsets, then this is an excellent way to bide your time whilst saving... 3 discs - each dedicated to a key Buffy character and containing 4 key episodes for each, which span across the seasons.
The boxset packaging is rather simple and unimaginative (no fancy foldout designs nor informative episode guide as with the standard series sets) but for the price and considering the great array of episodes you get, it is easy to let it slide. The Special Features section seemingly doesn't have much to offer (only a Character Profile and a DVD Trailer) but the Character Profile features a range of clips from all seasons and interviews with the actors and writers, which is much better than the screen bio that I was expecting!
All in all, thoroughly recommended - enjoy a selection of Willow, Spike and Angel's finest Buffy moments at a fraction of the usual boxset cost!

I recently bought the 1st part of series 7 on video. On the whole this is fantastic although it is probably overall my least favourite series of BTVS. HOWEVER! I have an episode missing... it skips straight from 'Bring on the Night' to 'Potential', missing out 'Showtime'. Is my version a one-off? Be careful when you buy and make sure you check before handing over any money!

The final end to "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" comes with these last twelve episodes, this boxset including the episode "Showtime" that was unfortunately omitted from Part 1. The episodes typify the best of Buffy (engaging story and characters), and the worst (unnecessary cast additions, and logic problems).
Sarah Michelle Gellar turns in a teriffic performance as Buffy, especially in the episodes "Get It Done" where she discovers the true origins of the Slayer and the season finale "Chosen", where she makes a decision that changes her fate forever. She is given fine support by her fellow regulars Alysson Hannigan, Nicholas Brendon, Anthony Head et al. The return of Eliza Dusku's rogue Slayer Faith is also welcome, and adds some interesting tension between the characters.
Ensouled vampire Spike (William Marsters) becomes a complete character in this season. The episode "Lies My Parents Told Me" shows what really turned this sensitive poet into a bloodthirsty demon: killing his mother. It's a wonderful episode, rounding off his character while setting him up for his role over on "Angel".
The last-minute introduction of preacher Caleb (Nathan Fillion) is something of a double-edged sword. While he's an interesting addition to the series gallery of misogynistic bad guys, his presence severely blunts the impact of the main villain, the First. Furthermore, some episodes feature plot twists that are not adequately set up beforehand.
But these are minor quibbles. The series last episode, "Chosen", completes the story in a suitably epic, grandiose fashion.
Goodbye, Buffy, it was nice knowing you.
