Book Description

December 9, 2008 078643676X 978-0786436767
Buffy the Vampire Slayer earned critical acclaim for its use of metaphor to explore the conflicts of growth, power, and transgression. Its groundbreaking stylistic and thematic devices, boldness and wit earned it an intensely devoted fan base-and as it approached its zenith, attention from media watchdog groups and the Federal Communications Commission. The grim and provocative evolution of the show over its final two seasons polarized its audience, while also breaking new ground for critical and philosophical analysis. The thirteen essays in this collection, divided into the perspectives of feminist, cultural, auteur and fan studies, explore the popular series' conclusion, providing a multifaceted examination of Buffy's most controversial two seasons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Season Six finally gets it's props August 24, 2009
I'm a sucker for any academic Buffy works, but this is one of my favourites. Covering the unfairly maligned Season Six (and less so) Season Seven, this if full of great essays on the best TV show to ever grace our screens. When it comes to Buffy, there's no such thing as 'too dark'..

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much flailing and thin air December 18, 2011
This is more or less an example that somewhere, somehow, someone there is someone who thinks Phantom Menace is the best of the Star Wars films. This book is that example for "Buffy".
Like most media studies, this is made up of frustrated writers showing hero worship for TV writers who are obviously too smart for the fans.
