"Angel" -- Buffy and Angel share their first kiss, and she finds out who he really is.
"Innocence" -- Angel loses his soul and his demon self takes over; Buffy must deal with him and stop the Judge.
"I Only Have Eyes for You" -- The tortured ghost of a former student haunts Sunnydale High School, re-enacting the murder/suicide he committed.
"Amends" -- At Christmas-time, evil haunts Angel, torturing him with visions of his murderous past and urging him to kill Buffy.
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 --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

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!
Eshewing the 'darkness' of the sixth season, Buffy Season 7, Part 1 goes 'right back to the beginning' in terms of story, style, comedy and nail-biting action. A new Sunnydale High School complete with a mysterious new principal, a new and seemingly unimproved soulful Spike, a magic-wary Willow and the hilarious comedy duo of Xander and Anya are all ingredients in this magical recipe.
The episodes really benefit from being watched back to back, as they fit together to form one epic finale to the series. While there are a few stand-alone comedy episodes (including one of the most hilarious denouements in 'Him' which has all the girls infatuated with the same guy) Joss Whedon and his talented writers and directors have pulled out all the stops to make sure that the celebrated series goes out on a high. We are introduced to new foes (the Ubervamp, anyone?) and comedy foils (last season's Uber-Geek, Andrew) that provide some of the series' highest points ever.
Threaded throughout this season is the extension and culmination of the whole Slayer mythos, as potential Slayers from all over the world are called to Sunnydale en masse to fight this year's 'Big Bad', a malevolent force called The First. Assuming any form it wants, The First tries to drive our heroes half insane, or just sends its blind minions, The Bringers, to hack and slash at anyone in their way.
Fans really couldn't have asked for anything more from Mr. Whedon for this last season. Not only are we kept thrilled and entertained, we are also teased and titillated by plot twists and killer dialogue.Read more ›
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.
Joss Whedon had nothing to do with the episode selections of any of these discs - it was done by some randon suit, who doesnt even watch the program - and it shows in many of the selections, especially where only half of double episodes have been put on the discs.
For this 'Best of Buffy' dvd, the vote that this selection came from had ' Once more with feeling' as number one - but as Fox had released that separately only months earlier they couldnt really include it here - although if they had no one would have been surprised.
The fact that most fans have already got the entire seasons, and the majority of the extras as well, seems beyond the money grabbers attention spans, as they strive to make money while the slayer is still fresh in fans memories.
DO NOT BUY THESE DVD'S - If you want to watch buffy, do it properly and buy the whole season. . you will gain nothing from these pathetic snapshots, as Buffy is all about the story arc and not single 45 minute episodes.
Even watching a great episode like Hush, would mean nothing to a newcomer without a taster of back history, as they wouldnt care about the relationship that had been building between Buffy and Riley.
Again I say, dont buy this - do yourself a favour and get the season boxsets.
Buffy is over - and releasing these single discs is a slap in face, money grabbing, opportunistic, and greedy attempt to milk the buffy cow dry.
dont do it.
