    Its second season has so far been fabulous — even funnier and scarier than the first.

The first thing most will notice is that the production values have improved significantly with the fight scenes in particular looking much more realistic and, with a bit more experience under their belts, the main cast certainly stepped up their performances. The writing, while as fast paced and humorous a one would expect form Josh Whedon, also had a bit more depth to it allowing for some real character development. On top of all this season two also saw the introduction of Spike, a character that would quickly become a fan favourite.

    This is when Buffy really became must watch television.

The first half is very similar to the first, dealing with a lot of fun monster of the week episodes but it does introduce two brilliantly entertaining villains in the English vampires Spike and Druscilla. It is the second half where the show really kicks into gear with the story of Buffy and Angel. This arc provides some truly epic episodes of television and is still for my money, the most memorable arc in the seven year history of the show. Full Review »
