News & Interviews for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6
But where Willow leads them, and where this season opener leads them all, looks to be a dark and scary place, with a few of the characters due for very major changes and conflicts. That's nothing new for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Although an ensemble effort, the show still belongs to Gellar, who has disarmed detractors with her charm and versatility.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer spared no expense with its musical episode...it's as glorious and campy as it sounds.
But in its sixth season, when too many television programs find themselves "Going Through the Motions," Whedon elevated Buffy to its highest peak.
Much darker than Buffy needed to be. Never forget the brilliance that is "Once More, With Feeling" though.
I was frustrated and disgusted that Giles got a salary for being a Watcher but Buffy risked her life sans stipend and had to work shitty jobs. I know it's supposed to be a metaphor for being a college dropout and sudden caregiver, but it annoyed me.
True, it's unfair that Willow and Tara suffered like they did, but is any character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer free of grief?
Season 6 of Buffy carries more powerful resonance than any other moment in the show's history.
Depressing though the season may be, it is also the most ambitious in its scope - it tried to show how bad life could become, without the sugar-coating. While it may have succeeded in its nihilistic goal, it also lost that good old Buffy feel.
Tara's death completes what has become a rather homophobic and pathological representation of lesbian desires and relationships over the course of the past season.
Audience Reviews for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6
Dec 25, 2020This is my favorite season overall! Great story telling and character development! As well as very dark themes coupled with plot elements that hit very close to home even if it is being told in this fictional supernatural universe. I have much love for this show but especially this season! A must watch for sure!!
Feb 01, 2020Always loved this show and this season was one of my favorites. Another example of the irrelevance of the 'professional critic's' opinion.
Jan 01, 2020This season doesn't get enough credit, it has become one of my favorites because it pushes the Buffy verse outside of its comfort zone.
Dec 22, 2019Definitely the most despair-filled Buffy season. Good plots and character work, but general despair makes some parts hard to watch. The middle of the season had some TERRIBLE episodes.
Oct 12, 2019Season 6 of Buffy is one of the more divisive in the series. Initially, I wasn't a huge fan of this season; however, the more I age, the more I identify with the struggles these characters faced. Hannigan's performance in this season is the standout and allows for such a raw, dramatic experience. The struggles in this season are very adult, which is dramatically different to the adolescent issues faced in the earlier seasons. The storyline throughout much of the season isn't the greatest, but the final triad of episodes is excellent and worth watching the season.
Oct 02, 2019Buffy is back from the dead. It's too bad that this is weakest season though. Despite a memorable musical episode. Most of the season has Buffy against her weakest villains. 3 nerds who decide they are her arch enemies. Things get interesting and sad when they accidentally kill Willow's girlfriend. Which gets Willow to bring out the dark side with dark magic.
Aug 27, 2019This season is rough but so is life and I appreciate what Whedon tried to do here. Double Meat Palace is television camp gold.
Mar 27, 2019This rating is for the original TV series, not the HD remaster. Try to see the original version if you can, they messed with the artistic integrity of the original by messing up all the color screening in the remaster which makes night time look like day, the actors look like plastic, etc. Buffy the Vampire Slayer started off as a campy and cheesy show comedy show but quickly developed into a show with great drama in it and quickly became one of my favourite shows as I watched it over the seasons. It never takes itself too seriously, sometimes poking fun at itself, yet it delivered a surprising amount of character development and drama for a show that started as a silly premise based on the original movie (the original movie was pretty boring, the show is way better)..
Jan 06, 2019Spike and Buffy Begin. Making this one of my favorite seasons
Aug 11, 2018One of the best TV shows for Sci-Fi! Cant wait for new show!
