Now you can own the entire second season of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. All 22 classic episodes are available for the first time in this exclusive 6-disc collector's edition. From "When She Was Bad," "Surprise" and "Innocence," to "Passion" and "Becoming, Part One" and "Becoming, Part Two," these Season Two episodes are a must for every true Buffy fan.
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 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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Oh and as far as the second season...this is when the show really started coming into it's own. If you've never watched this show before, the second season would be a great place to start. Unfortunately, the quality of the DVD is sub par at best. There were some scenes where I swear VHS would have been better. I hope 20th Century Fox fixes this problem before the release of the Third Season DVD. I wouldn't mind paying twice as much for the DVD set as long as the quality improved significantly. (Incidentally, the X-Files dvd collection costs more than twice the amount of the Buffy set for the same number of episodes, but the dvd quality is far superior).

It was awesome, everything I could ask for. Especially because I wasn't a fan of Buffy when it was out. I'm 22 btw so I was old enough to watch it when it was out too, lol.Published on Dec 30 2012 by Vampire-Princess
