Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) looks like your typical perky high-schooler, and like most, she has her secret fears and anxieties. However, while most teens are worrying about their next date, their next zit, or their next term paper, Buffy's angsting over the next vampire she has to slay. See, Buffy, a young woman with superhuman strength, is the "chosen one," and she must help rid the world of evil, namely by staking demons. The exceptional first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer introduces us to the treacherous world of Sunnydale High School (where Buffy moved after torching her previous high school's gym). The characters there include "watcher" Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) and the original "Scooby Gang" members--friendly geek Xander (Nicholas Brendon), computer whiz Willow (Alyson Hannigan), and snobbish popular girl Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter)--who aid Buffy in her quest.

The second season took the romance between Buffy and hunky Angel (David Boreanaz) 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. Buffy found its true momentum during the second season, as Xander fell in love with Cordelia, Willow 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.

The third season 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 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 out of Faith's evil clutches. Chock-full of exceptional episodes, the 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.

Buffy truly hit its golden years in the fourth season--just when you thought this show couldn't get any better, Joss Whedon and his creative team pulled out all the stops and took Buffy and co. into rich new territory. By far, the highlight of the season (and the entire series) was the Emmy-nominated "Hush," a nearly dialogue-free episode in which the creepy "Gentlemen" rob Sunnydale of its collective voice, and Buffy and Riley finally come face to face with each other's hidden identities. Throughout, the entire cast, headed by the unparalleled Sarah Michelle Gellar, worked television magic of the kind rarely seen on the small screen. This is Buffy at its best. --Mark Englehart

4.0 out of 5 stars Why are they including Season 4 June 29 2004
I would have given this "set" a review of 5 stars if it had only included the first three Seasons of Buffy--the true Classic Buffy. Season 4 is nothing more than a mismash of badly written characters and plot devices. Without David Boreanaz (Angel), and the high school setting, BTVS fell apart. Get Seasons 1-3 of Buffy, and then Season 1 of Angel, which is ten times better than Season 4 of Buffy. I would love to see them put together a special edition of seasons 1-3 of Buffy, but it's quite apparent that they won't.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is With The Price Increase? July 10 2004
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my favorite television show and I own seasons 1 - 5 on DVD and I'm planning on buying Season Six and I'm waiting for Season Seven to come out on DVD. I bought seasons 1 - 5 individually and this season 1 - 4 set wasn't an option when I started buying Buffy the Vampire Slayer on DVD and the first time I checked the Amazon.com reviews for this package they were selling it for 118.00 dollars and I wished that I had bought this set instead of buying the DVDs individually but what is with the price increase? Now the price says 182.53 dollars and I'm wondering if that is a typo or is 182.53 the normal price and was the 118.00 dollar price only a limited time sale price? Anyway in this case it seems cheaper to buy the DVD's individually and I'm now glad that is what I did but anyway I'm rating this 5 stars but only because I love seasons 1 - 4 and think they are all superb seasons!

1.0 out of 5 stars Denny, please don't lie to the good people here. June 21 2004
The set currently costs more ($182.53) than the COMBINED price you'd pay for buying Seasons 1-4 seperately ($175, and that's after rounding UP).
This is no deal, it is an absurd ripoff. A hardcore fan should know better than to help trick people out of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's been over a month since the price increase June 30 2004
By A Customer
sweetseb, I sent Amazon.com a notice pointing out their bizarre pricing the day I found out about it, and it's still more than buying the sets indiuvidually. A search engine can help people find a better price than even Walmart.com. So, Buffy fans, buy the set if you want it, but don't feel like you have to get it from Amazon.com.

If you are a diehard Buffy fan, watching these dvd's over and over again keeps the spirit alive and they don't stretch like videotapes! The outtakes and comentaries are great as well as the behind the scenes. A must own collection for all Buffy fanatics!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, But Not Buffy's Best June 30 2004
By A Customer
This DVD set is a great way to get started if you are a new "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" veiwer. If not, then this set is not the best. I wish that this could be done with all seven seasons (once season 7 becomes avalible) because otherwise it's not that great of a deal. Don't get me wrong, I love all the Buffy seasons, but what's the point of buying this set when I'm sure that many people already have most, if not all the seasons, currently avalible. Perhaps if there were some extra special features on theses discs some people might consider it, but there is not. If you are a new veiwer and do not have any of these sets then this is definitly for you, otherwise just buy the rest of your sets seperately.
