Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 7 – A Review

Hey guys!
This is it. We reached the 7th and final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Watching this show has been hell of a ride, so let’s see whether it got an ending worthy of the amazing lead!

The Plot:

This is it. Buffy and the gang have to make their final stand. It’s not just some vampire or a demon they have to face. This time its is the first, the original evil they have to go up against. It’s the entire world that is at stake!

The Rating:

Oh so many feels! Before I say anything else, I’m just going to warn you of the spoilers after the *read more* tag. We reached season seven, so it’s pretty much impossible to talk about it without giving away stuff concerning the previous seasons, and I have some details of this season we need to get into…

What I can say without spoiling anything is that the acting performances were outstanding. The cast we came to love over the past season was amazing as usual, as were some of the new additions we got. The set-design was great, even though some of the CGI effects were so obviously fake, it was a little cringy. I guess it’s partially due to the show simply being a couple of years old but you also have to bear in mind that it was a TV production and not a blockbuster movie. So, I would assume that means you have a lot less budget to work with.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6 – A Review

Hello folks! Another day, another Buffy review! We officially made it to the penultimate season. Let’s get right down to it and find out what season six has in store for us!

The Plot:

Buffy is dead. Where do we go from here? Who is going to save the world? Who is going to take care of Dawn? What will happen to the Scoobie gang? So many questions, let’s find some answers!

The Rating:

So much to talk about with season 6! There are many things I want to address, as usual spoilers will be below *read more*.

For now, let me just saw I was very impressed with the acting performances in this season. Sarah Michelle Gellar had been nothing short of badass before but this time it was not only her who delivered some stand-out scenes. Alyson Hannigan aka Willow really had some intense moments this season. Honestly, she would have deserved all the awards out there for what she did. And let’s not forget about Emma Caulfield aka Anya who is a crimially underrated actress! But let’s finally get to the nitty-gritty, shall we?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 5

Hey guys! Another day, another Buffy review.
We’ve already made it to season 5 – let’s see if the show can keep up it’s pacing and me intrigued!

The Plot:

Lots of things have changed and are about to change in Sunnydale. Do you remember Buffy’s sister?

The Rating:

EXCUSE ME. How well written was this season?! Admittely, we were off to a rocky start and I had my reserverations a the beginning, but damn, we have some episodes in season 5 that are nothing short of brilliant. I’m still feeling a little conflicted on the season as a whole but I am willing to forgive any of the imperfections due to some of the downright amazing episodes that easily balance everything out.

Unless you have seen seasons 1 to 4 pretty much everything from here on out will be a spoiler. Even if you have seen everything up to that point, I will be talking about some season 5 plot points in detail, so consider yourself warned!

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 4 – A Review

Welcome back y’all!
We’ve made it to season 4 of Buffy. That means we are now past the halfway point! Let’s see how the show has been holding up thus far.

The Plot:

The highschool years are finally behind us. Against all odds Buffy made (and most of her friends) made it to college. But, as you probably expected, that isn’t exactly smooth sailing either. And it appears someone else is out to get some monsters…

The Rating:

Okay, so once more: this review will feature a lot of spoilers. There are so many things I want to discuss and unfortunately that won’t be able without giving away many big plot-twists of this season. So, if you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to skip the read-more button!

Let me just tell you that it was an intriguing season. By far not my favorite but the final episodes did make up for that!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 3 – A Review

Hello, my darlings!
Welcome to another Buffy review. I just finished season 3, so let’s get down to it right away!

The Plot:

Buffy is doneTM. She’s reeling after the events of season 2 and tries to run from her old life. But it has a way of pulling her back in…

The Rating:

Oh wow, a lot of shit went down in this season. There are some things I want to discuss that won’t be spoiler-free, so consider yourself warned.

Let’s being with the events of the first episode, as I wouldn’t exactly call those spoilers. 😉
Buffy ran away from home and from everything that happened in Sunnydale, but of course, her past catches up with her and she ends up returning. In a way, this is a more intense recreation of the beginning of season 2. So, at first, I thought of it as too much of a copy, but actually, this was super well done and I ended up liking it. It was a good kick-off for the season. Buffy has a lot going on, she’s definitely dealing with PTSD, and the way the show addresses it is great. It feels very genuine and you can relate to Buffy. Also, once she’s back in Sunnydale it’s great that she is going through a process there. This is not a problem that can be solved within a minute. It’s only normal that it would take her some time to work through everything and that, of course, her friends and family would be dealing in their own way with it as well.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 2 – A Review

Hello, my darling readers!
Welcome back to my Buffy the Vampire Slayer review marathon. This year I watched the show for the very first time (yes, I am aware that I’m approximately 20 years late to the party). Let’s get to the bottom of season 2!

The Plot:

Buffy is back! Things went down and got dirty in the last season finale. Naturally, Buffy is shaken and it takes a hot minute for her to come to terms with everything that transpired. But she doesn’t have time to mope around, new evil is afoot!

The Rating:

Wow, this season was a handful. So many things happened and, to be honest, it’s impossible to discuss them all without spoilers. So, in case you haven’t seen this show yet, beware!

Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? Buffy clearly suffers from PTSD and is still figuring how to deal with everything. I found it very interesting how the show incorporated that. Buffy leaving but then returning, yet still realizing that she is not the same person anymore. It’s a struggle for her to fit back into her old life. I appreciate that instead of her just brushing it off and waking up bright and early the day after the last season finale, this is what we get. It makes the character so much more realistic and relatable. No wonder this show was so popular!
