5.0 out of 5 stars The all-time best season, with the best packaging, 27 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Buffy Vampire Slayer: Season 3 [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
In my opinion, it's the first three seasons of Buffy that hit the hardest. Each one is more dramatic and emotionally involving than the last, with a devastating finale - and the finale of this season is perhaps the best of all. Season 3 introduces rogue slayer Faith, the oddly short-lived star vamp Mister Trick, and the cordially sinister Mayor Wilkins (has a screen villain ever been so menacing, yet so chirpy?). If you've seen this season already, then you'll know exactly how high the standard is. If you haven't, then maybe I shouldn't say too much else except that you will surely not be disappointed.

After Season 3, things started to go sadly awry in the Buffy camp as the show grew increasingly implausible and inconsistent (although there were often classic epsiodes amongst the mess), and it was surely no accident that the writers reintroduced the school setting for the final season. I know a lot of fans rate the last season very highly, also Season 4 is a big favourite (probably the next best after 2 and 3 I reckon).

Last but not least, the packaging for this US box set is far superior to the UK version, boasting a magnificent fold out sleeve (much like the UK version of Season 1), superb photos of the main characters and a sprinkling of those classic quotes from the show.

What more can I say except that this DVD represents a much loved cult classic TV show at the height of its powers, beautifully packaged. This should be an essential purchase for all multi-region DVD player-owning Buffy heads out there.
