1 I love this show. Once again I was late to the party, so I did not start watching until the fifth season. I enjoyed it so much I bought all the DVDs back then. I still like this show, I just finished watching the entire run again just two days ago on amazon prime. Buffy is without a doubt one of TV's best characters ever. Her Willow and Xander had great chemistry, and Giles was great. I was never a fan of Cordelia, so I am glad she left. I did like Oz, and wish he lasted longer. Spike is also an integral character, richly developed over the years, absolutely necessary. I don't get why all the hate on poor Dawn. I thought she was beautiful. Probably unnecessary, but I liked how she always pushed Buffy's buttons. Overall one of the best shows ever. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 12:43 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Twenty years from now, fans of this show will come across it in reruns. They'll say to themselves 'I remember this show, it was great'...Then, when it's over they'll sit on their couch, stock still. One thought will bubble to the surface, just one. And it is this: "What the hell was I thinking when I was watching this crap?" -- Submitted By: (BrianBuck) on July 19, 2010, 7:56 pm - (-4 votes) - Login to Vote
3 "Never jumped. Definite decline in later seasons" - Um, that's what jumping/boning is! The point where a show starts to decline, not the point where it becomes unwatchable! I can't see a cliche moment where Buffy boned in any classic sense, however it was a show that eventually started to go stale due to repitition and probably went on a bit too long. I would say end of series 5 it probably boned. I also agree with what another poster said, that they tried to introduce too many 'main characters'. While it's nice to have some additional recurring/fringe characters like Riley, Dawn, Anya etc, they made a mistake in trying to force them on the viewer too often and too quickly. -- Submitted By: (Piemaster) on May 24, 2010, 4:29 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I agree with a lot of what creatrix said...Seasons 2 and 3 are as good as television gets; season 4 was the inevitable letdown; season 5 it rose again, and was meant to have ended on the "high" note of Buffy's ultimate sacrifice for her sister and the world...but I thought Buffy boned in season 6; Willow became way too powerful and confident - a far cry from the character in the beginning...too far for me. And although its hard for me to say the show totally sucked after season 5 (there were some SERIES high points that followed), it was almost a different show. And season 7 was just crazy...all those potentials and the contrived "Big Bad" of the First...but I still hated to see it end. I probably held out hope that it could recapture SOME past glory...and that is one of the things that made it a great show in the first place...you knew what it was at one time...but all great shows run out of material. But there was more great TV in seasons 2 and 3 (and scattered throughout EVERY season...save, maybe, 7) than most series squeeze out of ten seasons... -- Submitted By: (force26) on May 20, 2010, 9:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Never jumped. Definite decline in later seasons, but still one of the greatest shows of all time. -- Submitted By: (Meshakhad) on April 22, 2010, 10:39 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Actually I've just remembered what the final straw was for me. It was another one of those awful episodes after Buffy's resurrection (where she seems just really ridiculously bitter that her friends brought her back for the dead) that ends with everyone depressed and avoiding each other, which was bad enough, and then in a final twist we just see her making out with Spike out of the blue. Suddenly Buffy just wasn't the character she used to be, now she was someone who'd make out even with a psychotic vampire she was normally instinctively pledged to destroy and certainly never had no sexual feelings towards before. It was a degrading character assassination too far. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on November 12, 2009, 1:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Season 3 is where it jumped the shark for me, right from the beginning. Season 2 had been the show's peak but after that it seemed to believe its own hype and importance, with a tendency for horrible, melodramatic, heavy handed moralising like "Beauty and the Beast" and "Consequences", and a lot of the stories just felt half hearted and weak, as if the writers felt they had the formula down pat and didn't even need to try anymore. Case in point being when Buffy finally tells Giles and Willow that Angel was cured when she killed him and simply says in conclusion "it felt good to let it out", instead of saying something more cathartic about how the spell at least afforded her the chance to say goodbye one last time to the man she loved- its a small thing but it indicated to me that things had gotten lazy. There were some good, strong and thrilling episodes that season like "The Wish", "Helpless" and "Earshot" and the odd guilty pleasure a la "The Zeppo", but even then the show was taking a turn for the worse with the 'Scooby Gang' becoming a rather obnoxious, cliquey and vindictive bunch. In later seasons though we became burdened with dull, humourless and obnoxious characters like Dawn and Riley that the show kept demanding we care about, the show became more and more horribly man bashing "Beer Bad" and the arc leading to where a much put upon Spike tries to rape Buffy, and the series just became more melodramatic, shrill, heavy-handed and depressing in a way that just left a hollow shell to the show, and Buffy became less and less like someone you could admire or respect or even want to know. In some ways it was worth it for "The Body", which was a fantastic episode, but otherwise it seemed like the show would have been better ending with the "Becoming" finale. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on October 28, 2009, 8:08 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I was never a fan of Dawn or the Buffy/Spike relationship. There are many diehard shippers of Buffy/Spike and I just thought it didn't work. I did like the Buffy/Angel relationship in the beginning though. -- Submitted By: (itscreams) on October 10, 2009, 4:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I love this show, too, but the first 3 seasons were absolutely the best. After they demolish the school and Buffy graduates and Willow gets powerful and they befriend Anya... it's just too many superpowers in the mix. I really loved it all the way through, but they never rose to the level of those first 3 seasons again. -- Submitted By: (creatrix) on April 12, 2009, 9:16 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
