Product Description

Product Description

Living in Sunnydale, atop the human portal to the bestial, demon-breeding Hellmouth, and defending the world from its undead inhabitants, is tough enough. But Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), must also struggle with the very human challenges of being a typical high school student, where popularity can make or break you. It does not help that her cohorts Xander and Willow start dating, while all Buffy seems to have is the company of Angel--her boyfriend, if you can even call him that, since he is more devil than anything else. Even more daunting are the deliriously gruesome battles Buffy takes to the underworld--only to discover one shocking surprise begets another.

From Amazon.co.uk

The third season of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer was marked by the arrival in Sunnydale of renegade slayer Faith (Eliza Dushku), a moody loner who seemed to like her demon-staking calling just a little too much. While Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) was always wary of Faith, the two developed a deep friendship and appreciative rapport--that is, until the evil mayor of Sunnydale (Harry Groener) tapped into Faith's dark side and lured her into his plot to take over the world, first as a double agent spying on Buffy, then as out-and-out nemesis. And as the mayor's ascension approached--which happened to fall on Sunnydale High's graduation day--Buffy and Faith's battles got nastier and nastier, as Buffy attempted to wrestle with her dark side (literally and figuratively), save the world and her friends, and keep her lover Angel (David Boreanaz) out of Faith's evil clutches. Chock-full of exceptional episodes, this third season started out with a bang (the superb season opener "Anne," in which a runaway Buffy finally returns to her Slayer calling) and never let up. Among other highlights, the season introduced former vengeance demon and soon-to-be regular Anya (Emma Caulfield), fleshed out Angel's tortured character (and readied him for his own series), and featured a hilarious doppelganger Willow (Alyson Hannigan), a vampire from a parallel universe, who in Willow's own words was "evil and... skanky... and kinda gay!" (Total foreshadowing there, folks.) The season's pièce de résistance, though, was the two-parter "Graduation Day," wherein Faith tries to kill Angel, and the students of Sunnydale High prepare to do battle with a mutated mayor and his army of demons. Aside from the series' exceptional writing and acting, this compelling year of Buffy was anchored by the consistently excellent Gellar, as well as Dushku's complicated Faith, a girl you truly love to hate. By the time you finish these episodes, Faith will have cast a spell on you that you'll find very hard to shake. --Mark Englehart

I would make it clear I rate Buffy's second season as it's best (which I already own on DVD). The great love story between Angel and our slayer is less prominent in this (admittedly more balanced) season. However, it is a lot fairer on our other characters, and we still see our heroes going through all kinds of turmoil, both emotional and monster related.
Most startling addition is the rogue slayer Faith, who manages to throw a serious spanner in Buffy's life, as well as almost killing Xander at one stage...
I wont give everything away! Big baddie for this season is the towns extremely amusing mayor (who tells his vampire minions to mind their language). For some obscure reason, he is immortal, and wants to "ascend". This is not good as you can imagine. of course, Buffy saves the day! You'll enjoy finding out how though.
Elsewhere this is very much a season where the characters come of age, in Willow and Xander's case in the same way that Buffy did in season two. It is a lot cleverer than that however, and it is difficult not to be touched by episodes like "Amends" and "The Prom". Willow begins the enormous change in her character this season, and we learn even more about Giles wild past.
They are also joined by a new regular in the talented Seth Green as the Werewolf Oz, guitarist and boyfriend to Willow. Also present still are the adorable Cordelia, and of course Angel.
Anyway, dont be put off by the lacklustre start to the season, Buffy reached a peak in season three. This DVD set will be a must buy for fans!
Incidentally, if the packaging is like the season two packaging, watch out. It's very pretty, but it can scratch your discs!

This season just kicked ass! I'd pick it for someone just beginning Slayerfast just as easily as a dond rememberance how out of all 7 seasons this was the best - even if season 2 was much bigger on the epic love-hate-love relationship.
But come on? Buffy/Anne in LA? Faith appearing on the scene? Angel back from hell (never was DB more handsome)? The Mayor - greatest villain of all times? Yay!
And for me Graduation day (1&2) rival Becoming (1&2) as the most fabulous moments of 3rd season's BtVS episod!
ersonal favourite episodes(no spoilers): Anne, Faith, Hope & Trick, Beauty and The Beasts, Lover's Walk, The Prom, Graduation 1&2

Quite simply Season 3 is the best so far. Season 1 was finding its feet. 2 was really good. 4 and 5 have had excellent individual episodes but lack the consistency.
Season 3 has it all - the best villian, the best story arc and some of the all time best episodes. It's also the last season before we lost Angel and Cordelia to the spin-off.
A few highlights to whet your appetite
- ever wondered what Willow would be like as a vampire?
- ever wondered what Xander's real contribution to the gang is?
- ever wondered what happened to Spike?
- ever wondered what would happen if Buffy lost her strength?
- ever wondered if Xander and Cordelia can really last?
- ever wanted to see a showdown between two Slayers?

This my favourite season of Buffy due to genius of the addition of Faith - the girl jagged around the edges who becomes a 'rogue slayer'. This season has the most interesting storyline yet because of the exploration of a slayer choosing the wrong path, portrayed in Faith. Faith is a complete contrast to Buffy, but still holds character to grab a fan base of her own.
This season goes back to the days when Buffy was still at high school, Joyce wasn't dead, Cordy still ruled the school, Oz was in Dingoes Ate My Baby and Willow wasn't a lesbian. You'll even get a glimpse of the current Season 7 big bad in 'Amends'. Buffy only went down hill from here (with the exception of Season 5) in ratings and potential, perhaps due to the loss of Seth Green and Charisma Carpenter.
DVD wise this is worth buying because of the extras. There are scripts, commentaries and featurettes. Not quite as good as previous extras but still reigns above VHS. The picture and sound quality are good also.
So buy this now and relive the glory days of Buffy! I actually recommend you go to www.amazon.com (or elsewhere...) and buy the Region 1 version, if u have a multi-region DVD player as it will save you A LOT of money. The extras are the same and the artwork is a lot better!

Season 3 of Buffy, in my opinion, still stands head and shoulders above the rest. There are so many elements at work; suspense, romance, tragedy, horror, and surprise!
Season 2 ended with Buffy killing her lover, Angel, and then leaving town.
This season picks up with Buffy still out of town, numb from shock, and not in "Slayer mode", in "Anne".
Then back to sunnydale, we have the first enormous surprise of the season; a new slayer! Faith arrives in town; a slayer with a whole lotta attitude.
Next shocker: the return of Angel from Hell! Buffy now has to contend with a newly undead lover, as well as conflict with Faith, and of course, school, proms, and the usual beasts, demons, and vamps..
This season is also full of humour; the hilarious "Band Candy" where all the adults think they're teenagers (good Giles humour here!); the "ratting" of Amy, and also (surprise #3!) the return of a broken, desolate, recently-dumped Spike!
No point mentioning every episode; in this season THEY ARE ALL SO GOOD! But can't get through this review without praising "The Wish" - the introduction of Anya! Also a dark, dark episode where Sunnydale is an alternate world in which Willow and Xander are evil evil vamps and THERE IS NO BUFFY!
Then the story takes its dark course where Slayer #2 goes over to the dark side...
There is just SO MUCH in this season, and so stories that are carried through to the current season (you'll never get all the Anya jokes if you don't see "The Wish").. THIS IS THE SEASON YOU WANT TO OWN!!
