Season 6
13 April 2008 | by ( – See all my reviews

Season 6 is an excellent season of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", improving drastically on seasons 4 & 5 in every way. For one, the story arc is really quite convincing and entertaining. The trio's geeky conversations are far more entertaining than Glory bitching about something or the other, or Adam droning on about something nobody could care less about. Then you have Evil Willow, who is very entertaining and played excellently by Alyson Hannigan. Michelle Trachtenberg has improved leaps and bounds since season five and Dawn is no longer an annoying brat, and the rest of the supporting cast here, essentially The Trio, are played to perfection by Adam Busch, Danny Strong, and Tom Lenk.

Although season 6 could have had fewer average and occasionally mediocre episodes it makes up for this by having several of the series' best episodes, the absolute standouts for me being:

"Once More, With Feeling"- almost certainly the best-directed episode of the entire series, this episode turns jump the shark potential into glorious television thanks in no small part to its catchy tunes

"Tabula Rasa"- a perfect combination of comedy and drama

"Seeing Red"- perhaps one of the darkest episodes with two of the series' best and most shocking scenes

By combining some captivating and creative one-off episodes with a solid story arc, season 6 becomes my second favorite Buffy season after season 3, and really solid, exciting television by any standard.

Season average based on all episodes: 7.86/10
