Meet Faith (Eliza Disku), the sexiest slayer since Buffy herself, as the
Slayer Collection brings together four great episodes from some of your favourite Buffy Characters...

These DVDs seem more like a rip-off than a favour to fans, as most of the people that are likely to buy these DVDs will already have a close to complete Buffy episode collection at home already!

Either way, here they are, a selection of DVDs with four episodes that someone at Fox has classed as the best! These are the better episodes that the Slayer Collection offers, as other discs offer average episodes rather than classics. Faith's disc has the episodes:

Bad Girls
Buffy's new Watcher comes to town; Faith lures Buffy into her world of reckless abandon, with fatal results.

Buffy struggles with Faith's lack of remorse over last week's incidents; Faith initiates an alliance with the dark side.

Graduation - Part 1
While the Mayor prepares for his diabolical transformation on graduation day, Buffy battles Faith to save Angel's life.

Who Are You
While Buffy is mistakenly kidnapped by the Watcher's Council, Faith wreaks havoc in Buffy's life.

Faith is such a strong character that her episodes always stood out, but Graduation - Part 1 (one of the series' best ever episodes) and Who Are You are watchable over and over again. Graduation has one of the coolest ever fights to be seen on the small screen when its Slayer against Slayer, and Who Are You has some great comedy moments when Gellar plays Faith in Buffy's body; remember the mirror scene with Faith/Buffy saying "its wrong, its naughty!"

Even with the best episodes the set contains you'd still expect Fox to offer some brilliant extras but again they come up short with the goods.

All each disc contains is a Buffy/Angel DVD trailer and a short 10 minute, if that, 'character profile' which consists of some cut and pasted interviews (with some parts fans might recognise from past Buffy DVD extras plus some snippets from the pre-contained episodes.

Worth it? I don't think so, unfortunately the majority of fans will get these just to complete their sets. Shame on you Fox - the show is great but fans deserve something better than some already released episodes and a couple of shoddy extras!
