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 ›

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.

The second season of Buffy is considered by many to be the best. I personally think it is a toss up between this and season 3. This season begins with the fallout from the previous season as Buffy confronts the trauma of having been temporarily killed by the Master. There are a good few stand alone episodes in this series which I prefer to the soap opera style of later seasons and means that you can watch isolated episodes without having to watch them in the context of the whole season. Having said this, step forth the genius of Whedon who successfully manages to intertwine the main story arc amongst many seemingly stand alone episodes.
The length of this season allowed for a lot of character development and also the introduction of three popular characters, those being Spike, Dru and Oz. Buffy, while still retaining her wise cracking pep, becomes a little more grown up and appreciative of her friends while she deals with having died, the jealousy of finding out she is not the only slayer anymore and her growing yet doomed relationship with Angel. This is the last season in which Buffy is allowed to be a teenager, by the end of this season we see her as a broken young woman as everything is taken from her. We get to be more acquainted with Angel, only for him to turn evil and break Buffy's heart. Willow also gets her heart broken by long term crush Xander, but unlike Buffy is able to move on to a loving relationship with guitarist Oz. She also begins to dabble in Wicca paving the way for future story lines and beginning the journey to a more confident self. Xander meanwhile hooks up with Cordelia who continues to take sarcasm to it's natural conclusion but with a slightly more mellower side showing through.
