The Chosen One
One of the greatest television shows of all time. I just love it.
This season introduces all of the main characters and begins to explain the lore of being a vampire slayer.
Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy, knows exactly how to mix action, humor, love, drama, and suspense all into this show. I've definitely not seen anything like it before, except for Joss' other television shows. It's just not meant for teenagers, it's for people of all ages to enjoy. Everyone is bound to find something they love about it.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
One of the most entertaining and innovative TV shows ever to hit the airwaves. Inspiration rooted in pure fantasy fed by myth, superstition and religious overtones, Joss Whedon created a reluctant female superhero that is a role model to all who persevere in the face of reluctance and adversity.
Magnificently scripted to capture an era, it revels in puns and innuendo with deadpan delivery that should be the envy of any comic actors of the day. Our hero Buffy, deliciously brought to life by Sarah Michelle Gellar, takes on the burdens of the world on good days and bad, often emerging triumphant while paying a heartwrenching emotional price. A masterful web of intricate characters interacts so perfectly regardless of the absurdity of the moment, and tells a story of how people in real life really are, and how friends can mean so much more than friendships . The character studies are impeccable, and the subject matters are psychologically revealing without the show losing an entertaining beat. The episode "Hush" should go down as one of the most memorable shows in television history.
The entire series is a masterpiece of television that I for one will enjoy for many many years to come. I salute the whole incredible team for this magnificent piece of entertainment.

Into Every Genaraition A Slayer Is Born...
Joss Whedon's movie didn't take a bite out of the box office but the show was worth it.Sarah Michelle Gellar plays young Buffy Summers that finds out she is a vampire slayer.This item has 12 butt kicking episodes of action and horror.From Wellcome to to the Hellmouth to Prophacy Girl buffy S1 is great.12 episodes on 3 disc is really cool.I of course i wanted it to be longer because i love this show.Willow,Xander,Cordelia,and mysterious Angel make the show get heated up with romance.This would make a great Christmas or birthday gift for a buffy beginner.Happy Shopping!!!
I'll never say a bad thing about Buffy again!
I've spent a lot of time making fun of Buffy fans, thinking it was all a fluke that would not even be remembered a few years after the show went off the air. I was SO wrong!
Buffy is the Chosen One, the Vampire Slayer who moves to Sunnydale, CA. She makes new friends, Xander and Willow, and along with her Watcher, she fights off evil, vampires, demons and an insect-teacher. The episodes draw on history, old folklore, mythology and ancient religions.
This show is awesome! Not only is the story entertaining, humorous, and unique, but the special effects are really great too. Dialogue goes really well with the storyline, and Buffy and her friends are able to thow in a lot of really good one-liners. This show is as addictive as it is funny.
Like I said, I was ready to be really dissapointed with the show, and as it turns out, I had bought all seven seasons in less than a month. This show would appeal to all ages.

The Chosen One Moves To Sunnydale
Pleasantly surprised by the first season after seeing the movie I didn't think the show would be too deep. Buffy moves to Sunnydale with her mom Joyce after being kicked out of school in Los Angeles. She immediately meets her new watcher, Rupert Giles, hunky vampire with a soul, Angel and starts battling demons and vamps where she left. The villain of the first season is The Master, one of the oldest living vampires in the world. The stories are well structured with sharp, funny dialogue and each character really stands out on their own. It's fun to see a female action star for once. A must see for vamp lovers everywhere.
