Box set containing episodes 12 to 22 from the sixth season of the popular teen fantasy. In 'DoubleMeat Palace' a cash-poor Buffy takes a job in a fast food restaurant. 'Dead Things' sees the Troika convince Buffy that she has killed the innocent Katrina. 'Older and Far Away' has everyone gather together for Buffy's 21st birthday party. 'As You Were' finds Buffy's ex-boyfriend Riley back in town and now happily married. In 'Hell's Bells' Xander and Anya's wedding day brings all kinds of trouble. 'Normal Again' sees Buffy captivated by a hallucination in which she leads a normal life, free of all her slaying commitments. 'Entropy' has the friends discover that the Troika have been filming their every action with hidden cameras. 'Seeing Red' finds Buffy trying to foil an armoured van robbery. 'Villains' sees Willow go on the rampage after experiencing a tragic loss. 'Two to Go' has Buffy protect the remaining Troika members against Willow's wrath. Finally, in 'Grave', the time arrives for the final showdown between Willow, Buffy and Giles.
The sixth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was the one a lot of people hated--the show's writers followed the logic of plot and character development into some gloomy places, especially in this, the season's second half. The way that Willow's interest in magic had grown into an excessive fascination with her own power was plausible enough, but to move the interest of this over to a crudely explicit analogy with addiction and rehab was a point where the show seemed to be underlining its usual deft, angst-ridden metaphors. The complicated relationship between Buffy and the bleached blond vampire Spike was far more successfully handled. Sarah Michelle Gellar offers sexual self-disgust as well as any other emotion she has had to perform and James Marsters is as elegantly ruthless and obsessive as ever.
This is a season in which chickens come home to roost: everything from the villainy of the three geeks to Xander's doubts about marriage come to a head, often--as in the case of the impressive wedding episode--through wildly dark humour. The estrangement of the characters from each other--a well-observed portrait of what happens to college pals in their early 20s--comes to a shocking head with the death of a major character and that death's apocalyptic consequences. The season ends on a consoling note which it has, by that point and in spite of imperfections, entirely earned. Roz KaveneySee all Product description

Firstly there are just too many plot lines competing for attention so that none really held my attention, is this about the (awful) Trio, Willow, or Buffy & Spike? Previous series had a strong central plot combined with sub plotting and standalone episodes all expertly balanced. This series was all over the place and the only good standalone episode was the one Joss Whedon wrote.
Secondly the Trio of geeks were a big mistake, they were never more than mildly amusing at the start and Warren transformation into superbaddy completely ridiculous.
Thirdly there is some truly awful scripting and plotting. The dialogue always one of the joys of Buffy only rarely sparkled. While some of the plot developments are incredibly clumsily handled, oh Tara is back with Willow, oh 1 episode later Tara is dead and Willow is back on the magic. While much as I missed Giles he had at least one to many exits this series; I'm leaving, I'm back but I'm leaving again, I'm back but I'm dying, oh actually I'm OK!!!
Why 4 stars then? Because the best bits are still some of the best things on television and the final confrontation between Xander and Willow was as powerful as anything the series has done - though I suspect only for long term fans, Xanders character was seriously undermined in this series.
Overall a disappointment compared too the high standards Buffy can achieve, for those that don't agree ask yourselves which was more shocking & moving, Taras death or Glory feeding of her mind in series 5?
Season 6 marks a turning point in the show - it starts to focus on real life for a change. The demons Buffy has to fight this year are real, paying bills, finding a job, dealing with a younger sibling who just doesn't want to listen... There are a lot of problems with the season (not least the over-emphasised Marti-phors of addiction) but there's at least one saving grace! "Once More, With Feeling"!!
