Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

At the heart of the first years of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer was the romance between Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), slayer of all things evil, and hunky Angel (David Boreanaz), the tortured vampire destined to walk the earth with a soul. The second season of Buffy took the Buffy-Angel pas de deux from ecstasy to agony in a now-classic plot arc that catapulted the show from WB teen drama to true TV greatness. You see, if the cursed Angel ever experiences true happiness for a moment, he'll revert to being an evil vampire again. And guess what happens after Buffy and Angel finally declare their love for one another and consummate their relationship...

Buffy found its true momentum during the second season, as geeky Xander (Nicholas Brendon) fell in love with popular girl Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), Willow (Alyson Hannigan) gave up her crush on Xander in favor of werewolf boy Oz (Seth Green), and watcher Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) began a sweetly tentative relationship with computer teacher (and witch) Jenny Calendar (Robia LaMorte). Mayhem came to Sunnydale, though, in the form of evil vampires Drusilla (Juliet Landau) and Spike (drolly wicked James Marsters), who were more than ready to aid and abet Angel as he turned bad. It all sounds like horror-action mayhem (and there are great fight scenes), but Buffy took on its plotlines with amazing depth, intelligence, and humor. And oh, man, the love story! Buffy and Angel's tragic relationship is one of the most heartbreaking you'll ever find. Buffy's final dilemma finds her having to save the world at Angel's expense, and Gellar (who deserves a passel of Emmys for her work) is phenomenal at telegraphing Buffy's swirling conflicts between love and duty. This is some of the best TV ever made, period. --Mark Englehart

The average review, allegedly of this product, is five stars, but since the reviews came out before the product, these morons have obviously rated the SHOW, not the DVD they're supposed to be reviewing. Yes, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is one of the greatest shows of all time, but this package is a disgrace. Of the dozens of DVDs and videos I have, the DVD package of "Buffy"'s 2nd season has by FAR the worst picture quality. Since one of the biggest advantages to DVD technology is improved visual quality, you'd think Mutant Enemy and 20th Century Fox would at least take the time to clean up the image and give us a decent product. But the picture is so bad (especially on Disc 1) that it is sometimes difficult to follow the action...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of the most clever, stylish and deep shows on TV today, and Season Two is where it really starts to shine. This boxset contains all 22 episodes of the show's second season, which featured one of the biggest story arcs ever on the show: Angel (good vampire and Buffy's boyfriend) loses his soul after a night of passion with Buffy and becomes the evil, sadistic Angelus.
Note that while several of the episodes from Season Two have been released on VHS, this is the first time that all 22 episodes have been available (at least in the U.S.).
Notable episodes in this boxed set:
"School Hard" - Spike and Drusilla, two British vampires who become series villains, are introduced.
"Inca Mummy Girl" - Oz, a laid-back guitarist who will eventually romance Buffy's friend Willow, is introduced.
"What's My Line" (2 parts) - Career Day coincides with several assassination attempts on Buffy. Introduces the "other Slayer," Kendra.
"Ted" - John Ritter plays the stepfather from hell to Buffy.
"Surprise/Innocence" (2 parts) - The seminal episode in which Buffy turns seventeen and Angel turns bad.
"Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" - One of the best comic episodes of the show, featuring Buffy's friend Xander.
"Phases" - A werewolf is attacking teens, and apparently Oz has something to do with it...
"Passion" - The Angelus matter comes to a head when he starts going after Buffy's friends.
"Becoming" (2 parts) - The tearjerker season finale, in which Angelus is determined to send the world to hell and it's up to Buffy and her motley Scooby gang to stop it.
This boxed set also includes a boatload of extras, including interviews with actors and with the creator of the show, Joss Whedon.

Format: DVD
The second season continued one what was successfully started in the first season. The second season is a lot more ambitious (remember, the first season only had twelve episodes, unlike the rest which had 22).
The story arcs in the second season are brilliant. The romance between Angel and Buffy reached gothic heights with Surprise/Innocence (Surprise is astonishing). When Angel turns bad, David Boreanaz manages to do a sensational job of acting the transition (the episodes "Passion" and "I Only Have Eyes For You" are incredible in detailing this, and Buffy's reaction). Willow's romance with Oz is wonderful, and Giles attachment to Jenny Calendar a welcome addition.
This show still manages to be surprisingly funny (as seen in Halloween, and Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered) and packs a wallop (the two part season ender, Becoming I & II, are essential viewing for any Buffy fans. They are incredibly moving). Yes, there are some clunkers (Killed by Death, Bad Eggs), but they are more than redeemed.
My favourites are: Becoming I & II, Surprise/Innocence, I Only Have Eyes for You, Passion, School Hard, When She Was Bad, and Lie To Me
For a show set in high school, the writers have neatly side-stepped making a caricature of Anthony Stewart Head's librarian/Watcher Giles. His befuddled sexiness is immensely appealing. Alyson Hannigan's performance as wallflower Willow blooming into a witch (her growing powers are smartly charted by writers all the way through season six) is strong, and having the animosity between Xander and Cordelia boil over into lust was a masterstroke. Finally, we have to give the star her due.

I have nothing to say against this show. The bad review is due to the discs that they came on.... The first disc started to work in my dvd player then all of a sudden quit. At first i thought it was my dvd player, but it then refused to work in all of the DVD players that i tried... so i tried the next discs.... some episodes work others don't.... Now i don't know if i just got unlucky and bought some faulty discs or if they are all like that... So if you like the show and want to buy it from here please do so with caution.

'A little less ritual and a lot more fun.' Most fans will agree that was the line that defined BtVS's second season. This season gave us villains that were as fun to watch as the heroes in the form of Spike, Dru, and (most importantly) Angel. The season arc is a straightforward metaphor for a relationship gone wrong, but the series mines it for some superb storytelling and deep characterization. Buffy, the show and the character, came into its/her own this season, making it the perfect starting point for those looking to get into the series.

This season isn't as polished as later years, but every element of the show is much improved from season one. The supporting characters are all better defined and episodes like 'Innocence,' 'Passion,' and 'I Only Have Eyes for You' demonstrate the kind of bold storytelling this series would become known for. There are still some rough patches ('Reptile Boy' and 'Go Fish') but the good definitely outweighs the bad.

Extras
The scripts, photo galleries, and promos are predictably useless, but what we do get more than makes up for it. The three audio commentaries (by Whedon, Greenwalt, and Noxon) are entertaining and insightful. The three featurettes are of the 'take it or leave it' variety, but their made up for by some great interviews with Whedon.

Presentation
HD is no friend to a series this old, but I'm far more willing to forgive that than the atrocious animated menus. Seriously, these are among the most obtrusive I've ever seen.

Bottom Line
While things would grow more polished in later years, this is still a good season of a great series and the perfect place for newbies to start watching. Fans wanting only the best Buffy has to offer should probably get seasons three and five first, but no collection can be complete without these seminal episodes.
