Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
Season 4
When Angel Season 1 came out on DVD, fans had one small beef. They thought it should have been co-released with Buffy Season 4 in order to savor the crossover episodes between Angel (David Boreanaz) and the Slayer (Sarah Michelle Gellar). Well, the wait is over: The pair's doomed erotic reunion on Angel is foreshadowed by the "Pangs" Angel suffers on Buffy. And in a season marked by change, Buffy's vampire soul mate was far from her only loss. Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) also decamped to the spin-off. The werewolf Oz became an endangered species when Seth Green opted to make movies. Even Sunnydale High was left behind as Buffy and Willow entered college. Yet despite all these changes -- ­­and a weak central arc involving an X-Files-style cabal of covert government demon hunters­­ -- Season 4 delivered some of Buffy's best-ever episodes. Top of the list are "Hush," a dark fairy tale in which demons steal voices to silence screams; and "Restless," the season finale, which plants clues for the future in the REM movements of interlocking dreams. Both were written and directed by series creator Joss Whedon, whose pithy commentary digs deeper than on previous DVD releases. Seth Green has a last hurrah in the poignant "New Moon Rising," while the witty Buffy-and-Faith two-parter gives new meaning to the term "body double." Season 4 also boasts what many consider two of Buffy's worst-ever episodes: "Beer Bad" and "Where the Wild Things Are," both set (where else?) at frat-house parties. The Slayer gets a little sloppy, but hey, freshmen will be freshmen.
