Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Season 3) - TV Series Review

Home > Everywhere > Television
Published May 21st 2013
Buffy, season three – what a bitter sweet series. Almost as good as season two and the last semi decent series of the franchise as a whole.

After the dramatic events of the previous year's finale, Buffy is left in voluntary exile at the beginning of the story in L.A, locked away in a room lost in pain and guilt. Yet her duties as a slayer dog her every footstep, sooner enough she is fighting demons who are enslaving the innocent.

This series is an interesting one as Buffy must deal with the fall out of the previous series but also try and grow up as a person. Her time at Sunnydale High is coming to an end and the slayer must decide what to do with her life.

The chemistry between Willow and Xander finally comes to a devastating and deathly finale.

A new watcher appear – Wesley, he is a great foil to both Giles and Buffy in his obsession with the rules.

There is also the introduction of Faith Lehane, the new Slayer. Passionate, sexy and violent Faith blazes into town charming everyone that she meets apart from Buffy. Buffy both envies and hates Faith by turns, jealous of the attention she is given by everyone but also jealous of her care free existence. Faith's violent streak also gets both slayers into serious trouble.

Angel also re –appears in a blaze of dramatic and very naked glory. Buffy must try to deal with her feelings for him once again and face up to the fact that their romance has no future.

Series highlights include "Faith, Hope and Trick", the introduction of Faith as a character. An excellent story demonstrating how damaged Faith is and how corrupt the council has become.

"The Wish" is an interesting what if episode? Buffy is wished out of Sunnydale by Cordelia and chaos ensues.

"Helpless" is also great because it gives the audience a sense of Buffy would be like if her powers were taken from her. "Dopplegangland" takes a look at a vampire Willow and how much mess she can create.

The finale is also a lot of fun appealing to every teens dream about graduation. The story brings every character together in a fight of good against evil.

A very entertaining and sad series because it is the end of an era.
