More mature. Some minor spoilers.,
This review is from: Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Season 6 (Box Set 1) [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
People have been saying that Season 6 was rubbish, due to the lack of "big bad," the way that the characters went in different directions, the relationships that certain characters developed, but this season was mostly about growing up. Maturity is the main theme in most of the episodes and this affects all of the scoobies, each one having to come to terms with some life changing events. In earlier seasons, Joss Whedon, the creator, has always placed monsters and demons where real life problems might be, but here, Joss has taken away the monster element and opened these characters to the real world. There are real things happening to these characters, Buffy is unemployed and looking after Dawn. Willow learns about the hardness of addiction and finds herself shutting people out from her life. This is just the tip of the iceberg as the season has so many twists and turns you really don't know what's going to happen next. Season 6 is sexier, edgier, darker and a lot more mature than past efforts. This is one of my favourite seasons of any television show, this is a must have.
