Quotes

[after capturing Buffy]
The Master: You tried. It was noble of you. You heard the prophecy that I was about to break free and you came to stop me. But prophecies are tricky creatures. They don't tell you everything. You're the one that sets me free. If you hadn't come, I couldn't go. Think about that.

Season One
11 April 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

Season One of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is honestly quite poor when compared to basically all of the later episodes of the show. Although it contains two memorable and exciting episodes- "Angel" and "Prophecy Girl", it's really mostly a collection of poor or mediocre, and really formulaic (see monster becoming a threat, monster captures/endangers someone Buffy likes or is related to, and Buffy saves the day) episodes that serve no purpose or benefit but to introduce the characters and setting. Luckily, it's only 12 episodes long and the second season was an astronomical improvement.

Average rating based on all episodes: 5.33/10
