Critic Reviews for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

As always, this "Buffy" works so well because, in addition to its primary supernatural plots, it treats high school as a horror flick all its own.

November 17, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

After a solid but patchy first season, it rounds off those rough edges to fully become the show it promised.

November 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Season two managed to build on and continue all the character development from season one, more fully fleshing out characters like Xander, Willow and Giles while still keeping the focus squarely on Buffy and her personal journey.

November 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Season two is the quintessential season of Buffy.

November 22, 2017 | Full Review…

This season had some fairly stupid monster-of-the-week episodes. But the overall arc, especially the way it zigs when you think it will zag is awesome.

November 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Its second season has so far been fabulous -- even funnier and scarier than the first.

November 17, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
