What sets BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER apart from most other shows, apart from the individual brilliant scripts that graced most of the episodes, is that the show over the course of seven seasons tells a story. What the casual viewer of the show could easily miss is the semi-tragic themes underlying the series: young, happy cheerleader and inevitable prom queen is pulled away by destiny from the life she loves to unwillingly undertake the burden of being her generation's Chosen One: a super-empowered heroine to fight against the powers of darkness. This is a responsibility she has neither sought nor desired, and one of the persistent themes of the show is that destiny basically dealt Buffy a nasty set of cards. Sure, she has super strength and agility and recuperative powers, but she also knows how she became The Slayer: someone else died. For one becomes the Slayer only by the death of another Slayer, which calls attention to the fact that she, too, is destined to die to make way for another Slayer. As she puts it in one episode, "Every slayer comes with an expiration date.Read more ›
However, there was something about the movie that caught the attention of the president of the tiny WB network. The network had so far only found success with the overly-sentimental family drama 7th HEAVEN and was more willing to take a chance on something unusual than the four major networks were. Gail Berman called Whedon and asked that he revitalize and rework the idea for television. After seeing the unaired pilot he had made to shop around the idea to networks, she agreed to a 12 episode order. And with that, one of the greatest television shows ever created was born.
The TV version of BUFFY is very different from the film version.Read more ›
That is because my oldest daughter is away at college and she was not allowed to take my "BtVS" DVD sets with her. I had purchased the first season for all three of my kids (two are away at college so it is not like they are all in one place) and was intending to eventually get them the other six but "The Chosen Collection" is too good of a deal to pass up and not just because of the price. This one big red and white box takes up a lot less space (a bit more than a third). That is because when you open it up inside you will find wallet-like cases for each of the seven seasons. So it seemed an appropriate gift for someone turning 21 who writes about Buffy whenever possible in her college classes.Read more ›

|Any good series similar to Buffy?||
The only other show I think comes close to the quality and originality of Buffy is Dexter. Although it's not exactly in the same genre, the writing and acting are phenomenal. (But Buffy will always be my favorite series.)
I wasn't a fan of Angel, the series. I watched it because there are some... Read More

|Is there a play all option on the disc menu?||
The menus for the Buffy DVD's are horrible. They made it very annoying with the looping music for each season being exactly the same on each disc, and the many useless sub-menus for the same things. Does each episode need it's own Language Selection and Subtiles Option? NO! Just put it once... Read More

|What is the difference between The Chosen Collection?||
The Chosen Collection came on 40 discs, with the 40 disc being a bonus with extras. The red box "Complete Series" is just a repackaging of all the individual seasons.
