Buffy just keeps getting better,
By A Customer
This review is from: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 3 - Episodes 12-22 (Box Set) [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
There are two things that keep me coming back to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. First, the stories are so well devised and scripted, with some genuinly funny, sad, and frightening moments. Secondly, the characters are the best i have seen on television since Star Trek: Deep Space Nine ended. With each episode the grow, like a normal teenager, not like other shows where the characters never change over the course of god knows how many series. And season three is by far the best, with the Scooby Gang having to face up to the fact that soon they may have to split up and go there seperate ways. There is a major evil lurking in the background the whole time in the form of the Mayor and his acension. But sometimes the important stuff takes a back seat to the characters, especially in the episode where the focus is on Xander's hectic evening of raising the dead, killing the dead, having sex with Faith, and saving the school from destruction. But all the time in the background, the rest of the gang fight for their lives as the hellmouth opens. Its the fun stuff like this that keeps me interested. I cannot wait for season four, with its great episodes like 'Hush' and 'This Years Girl'.
