Does not come without controversy . . .

Post  xinyuntian01 on Mon Jul 18, 2011 11:45 am

Foremost, this set sale Babylon 5 is spectacular. The box is both sturdy and aesthetically appealing. The 40 discs are packaged in neat, little "bites." (Moreover, many of the original scripts are actually preserved on these discs! Perfect for Buffy-researchers!!) Individual seasons are assembled in a solid, flip-book style. A bound-guide assists the holder in finding favorite episodes . . . and, most ingeniously, the summaries only hint at events. So, if this is your first viewing of the complete series, nothing is given away! Instead of gushing over this box-set, I will simply say that it is, indeed, the ultimate collection. Its careful construction ensures that you will have this treasure for as long as you desire.Now, for the controversy . . . which has reached new, "conspiratorial" levels. Many of your favorite brick and mortar stores WILL NOT carry this set!! After attempting to locate it locally, I spoke with a manager at a major electronics store. He gruffly informed me that he will NOT be carrying the set since (I QUOTE), "It's pretty hard to sell Season One for $49.99 when customers can buy the whole set for $179.00." Phenomenally funny, right?! So, if you have found this page, count yourself lucky!! (Though I have seen this box-set at Best-Buy for a staggering $199.99!!!)Bottom-line: BUY IT!!! You will count it among your valued possessions!!!
What a great show. Blending life with magic seamlessly. Here, rating my fav seasons, 1=best, 10=worst, etc.1: Season 5-Definitely the best season of Buffy. It's where Buffy is really grown up, not in the horrors of high school or the awkwardness of college. Also good, because Riley finally leaves. (Can you tell I don't like his character?) The death of Joyce in "The Body" is so sad, and has almost no supernatural elements in it at all, but it works. "The Gift" is definitely great. This season is more spiritual, with Buffy learning more meditative techniques than violence from Giles, and her "self-sacrifice"...."death is your gift." And let's not forget Glory, one of the best Big Bads of all time. Best Episode: "Fool for Love" (Spike and Dru flashbacks!) Worst Episode: "Into the Woods" (Stupid junkie Riley.)2. Season 7-I know many say Northern Exposure 1-6 full episodes box sets that this is Buffy's weakest season, but I, as you can see, obviously disagree. Willow is learning how to use her powers for the white hats, and Dawn goes to high school. Finally. The Potentials make the show really interesting.....almost Harry Potter-esque--but not in a bad way. The addition of Andrew to the cast is great as well. Best Episode: So Cold Case 1-7 seasons series many....uh "Conversations With Dead People," "Selfless," "Storyteller," "Chosen" Worst Episode: "Lessons" 3. Season 3-Good season. The addition of Faith and Wesley makes for a nice change, and Big Bad The Mayor is up there with Glory in the coolest spot. Buffy at its best. Best Episode: "Dopplegangland" or "The Wish" Worst Episode: Not any real bad ones, but "Amends" gets on my nerves.4. Season 6-This and the next one are basically tied. I absolutely love this season because of the magic, and "Once More, With Feeling". But junkie Willow can be annoying. It's OK to stray from the path, but I think this season went a little overboard. Californication complete series on dvd Best Episode: "Once More, With Feeling" Worst Episode: "Wrecked"5. Season cheap Nikita seasons 2-This and Season 6 are tied, just to let you know. The relationship between Buffy and Angel is great, just as is Cordy's and purchase all seasons of Rescue Me dvd Xander's, and Willow's and Oz's. The season of love. Spike and Dru rock too. Best Episode: "Becoming" Worst Episode: "When She Was Bad"6. Season 1-I like this season, but everything is just too campy. I sure don't remember streetwalker vinyl being 'in' in 1997, but hey, good writing. Best Episode: "Witch" Worst Episode: "Teacher's Pet"7. Season 4-The addition of Riley to the cast is dumb. Bad character. Buffy loses Angel and falls in love with a.....frat boy? Plus, the show literally changes from fantasy to SciFi with the addition of The Initiative. Really. It reminded me of Stargate. Still some good It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia series box set 1-5 eps though. Best Episode: "Hush", "Superstar," or "Restless" Worst Episode: "Where the Wild Things Are" (Riley and Buffy having icky intercourse...with vines. They just HAD to up the sex appeal, didn't they?)I have one question......why did they suddenly leave off with college after Season 4? I mean, sure, Buffy had reasons--first Joyce was sick, then she had Dawn...but they made it look like Willow and Tara were just job/school-less. College has more homework than that....Television History.
At any price less than $ 210., this is a bargain, since 7 seasons at 30. would cost that.It is even worth MORE than 7 seperate seasons just for saving me the shelf space.I have never Battlestar Galactica collection 1-4 series watched ANY show or movie more than once, I hate repeats, but buy all seasons of The Unit series I have watched Buffy re-runs on tv every morning for years. I am thrilled to not have to see any more FX commercials to watch BTVS.If the price bothers you: watch it on tv, wait for the price to come down, buy it used, or buy the individual seasons from all the people that are trying to get rid of them. But like I said, this set seems like a deal to me.I did pre-order the set at the lower price, I look at it as a benefit for early commitment to amazon rather than shopping for the best deal, sometimes loyalty pays off.
