It starts by introducing Buffy's sister Dawn in a very innovative, unique way and follows the story of the villain Glory, played by Claire Kramer and her quest to find a mysterious key. That is the main arc but there is also a subplot involving Buffy's mother Joyce and that is just as riveting as the main story and produces the episode ''The Body'', which is one of the best episodes of TV I've seen. The finale, ''The Gift' is another brilliant episode. Expand

Shocking twists. Excellent writing. Wonderful character development. Even the inclusion of Dawn was really well done and very believable (did have me scratching my head at first.) Michelle Trachtenberg is a welcome addition to the cast and it's almost a pity she wasn't there from season 1 (well, in a way she was, but we didn't get to see that reality.) Glory is just a perfect villain and really well played. Overall: Season 5 is by far the best season that really come to a great end that does Buffy's character justice. I think this was the only time I have ever cried watching a TV show. Expand

Glory makes for a great nemesis ensuring the season long plot arc is more interesting than the Initiative from season four and there are also plenty of great stand alone episodes thrown into the mix as well.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The worst season by far. The Key is stupid. Spike saved this from a complete flogging. Am glad the show didn't end here, as intended. No one wants to see the Slayer die, do they? Expand

They spent more time trying to keep an eye on Buffy's vapid sister, it takes away from the story line. It's also a season, like season 6, which begins to take itself too seriously. I loved this show. I've watched it through a couple of times, but this season, I picked and choose which episodes to watch. Expand
