All 22 classic episodes are available for the first time in this exclusive 6-disc collectors edition. From "Faith, Hope & Trick," "Band Candy" and "Bad Girls" to "Consequences," "Enemies" and "Graduation Day, Part Two," these Season Three episodes are a must for every true Buffy fan.
The third season of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer was marked by the arrival in Sunnydale of renegade slayer Faith (Eliza Dushku), a moody loner who seemed to like her demon-staking calling just a little too much. While Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) was always wary of Faith, the two developed a deep friendship and appreciative rapport--that is, until the evil mayor of Sunnydale (Harry Groener) tapped into Faith's dark side and lured her into his plot to take over the world, first as a double agent spying on Buffy, then as out-and-out nemesis. And as the mayor's ascension approached--which happened to fall on Sunnydale High's graduation day--Buffy and Faith's battles got nastier and nastier, as Buffy attempted to wrestle with her dark side (literally and figuratively), save the world and her friends, and keep her lover Angel (David Boreanaz) out of Faith's evil clutches.
Chock-full of exceptional episodes, this third season started out with a bang (the superb season opener "Anne," in which a runaway Buffy finally returns to her Slayer calling) and never let up. Among other highlights, the season introduced former vengeance demon and soon-to-be regular Anya (Emma Caulfield), fleshed out Angel's tortured character (and readied him for his own series), and featured a hilarious doppelganger Willow (Alyson Hannigan), a vampire from a parallel universe, who in Willow's own words was "evil and... skanky... and kinda gay!" (Total foreshadowing there, folks.) The season's pièce de résistance, though, was the two-parter "Graduation Day," wherein Faith tries to kill Angel, and the students of Sunnydale High prepare to do battle with a mutated mayor and his army of demons. Aside from the series' exceptional writing and acting, this compelling year of Buffy was anchored by the consistently excellent Gellar, as well as Dushku's complicated Faith, a girl you truly love to hate. By the time you finish these episodes, Faith will have cast a spell on you that you'll find very hard to shake. --Mark Englehart

I'm a huge, huge, huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan. As in, when I'm not feeling good or down in the dumps, my husband knows to just put Buffy on and leave me to wallow. I'll eventually emerge feeling much better.
I'm not sure what happened to the VHS tapes I used to have, but they've managed to go missing long ago. Not that it would matter, since they're obsolete. I had always diverted back to Netflix whenever I wanted to watch my favorite show. However, Netflix has a nasty habit of just randomly dropping a title. Because of this, I'm slowly collecting the DVD sets.
I'll eventually buy one of the special edition box sets, but, for now, I'm enjoying these slim sets that I'm slowly picking up season by season. I like them because they take up little room and fit nicely on my shelf with our other movies and games.
Disclaimer: This should be an Amazon verified purchase. I paid full listing price and NOT receive this product free or deeply discounted. However, my review is still honest and unbiased. If you found this review to be helpful, I'd appreciate if you would mark it as such. Thanks!
altought he dos not make it faith goes to the mayor and tightens an allience with him and with his help to steal angel soul.
my opinion is that when I first saw this season I didn't know what brought Angel back in heart and I'm still confused on''The claddagh ring or the first evil''?! whatever they did not explain very well but I think that that the power of love is very intense and it can lead to positive conseguenses.
The connection between Faith and the Mayor is the knife that he gives at her ike a gratitude sign for the job done I think he truly care about faith but we all know that even if we care about someone altough we try to hide it because sometimes it hurts and I addmited I have done mistakes in my life but We can all make amends for that like Angel like Faith like Darla...we only should know ur personalities better and discovered our hearts.
At least I'm covering for the third time this season..simply beautiful like the one the two the four the five the six and the seven!
Every episode is filled with new witty banter, demon-slayage, and heartfelt moments if not hysterical laughter. Joss Whedon has a gift of ensuring that serious moments do not last long, there is always something to perk you up and laugh at just around the corner.
I am currently on disc five of six, and am ecstatically awaiting to finish the series (if only there were more hours in the day!). Fans who adored season one and two of Buffy will not be disappointed with season three. It is completely worth the addition to the collection, and Amazon had it arrive speedily and wrapped so that it was unharmed, so that I might view it as soon as possible.
