Well its time to complete that Buffy the Vampire Slayer
DVD collection as season seven finally hits the shelves.
It's sad to see a show so good come to an end, but at least
the show ends on top form.
seven takes the show back to its roots, focusing on female
strength, the bond that the group shares and the concept of
the Chosen One and what it means. It lightens up just a little
after the somewhat darker and dirtier seasons' 5 and 6. Yet
the rainbow of emotions is there: laughter, angst, fear, sadness,
joy - Buffy the show takes us through them all.
a mixture of the old and the new as some episodes see the
return of classic characters Faith and Angel, plus there is
the introduction of the next generation - the potentials,
but the quality is definitely back to that of the first three
is a standout episode which will make you both laugh and cry
as Andrew tries to capture the story of those that fight the
impending apocalypse on tape - in case they don't survive.
He finally comes to terms with the fact that he shouldn't

there's Showtime which sees Buffy having to fight an
Ubervamp for the first time, plus of course Conversations
With Dead People where there's hauntings of a different
kind for many of the main characters - one creepy episode
My Parents Told Me is also another episode that should
be given credit - a look back at Spike's history as well as
that of principal Wood and how The First managed to gain control
over Spike through an old folk song.
the two concluding episodes give Buffy the final climax
it deserves with an apocalyptic battle like no other which
ends with... ah, now that would be telling.
for DVD extras - don't hold your breath. To be fair there
is a better selection than most of the other series' but you'd
always hope for more. There's a good selection of commentaries
from directors, writers and stars - which will fulfil some
of your needs. There are also a few featurettes, including
one where Joss Whedon runs through his favourite Buffy
episodes throughout the show's seven year run. There is also
a very cheesy, perhaps even puke worthy - its for the fans
featurette. There's a gag real that's a little longer than
the others, but that's about your lot!
you buy a DVD for the quality of its overall content and not
just its extras, right? And on the basis of that, Buffy
goes out in style.
