Barnes & Noble -Season 6
Considered by many fans to be the darkest in the series, the sixth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer marked changes not just to the show's network it went from the WB to UPN but to Buffy's character as well. After sacrificing herself in Season 5 to save the world, Buffy Sarah Michelle Gellar is resurrected from the dead by Willow Alyson Hannigan, who thought Buffy was in a hell dimension. What the Scoobies don't know is that Buffy believed she was actually in heaven, and after being ripped from a peaceful existence she now considers her life hell on earth. The depressed Slayer secretly turns to someone who knows about death -- a Buffy-obsessed Spike James Marsters -- and the two begin a twisted relationship. This season also introduces the Trio, a group of geeks who want take over Sunnydale and play a large part in the season finale, and it features the exit -- and eventual triumphant return -- of Anthony Stewart Head as Giles. Easily one of the best Buffy episodes of any season is "Once More with Feeling" a musical that has the characters singing what they feel, allowing Buffy to finally tell her friends the truth about her return. Series creator Joss Whedon wrote the episode's score, songs, and lyrics, all to fantastic effect. The complete musical only aired on TV once, so fans are sure to enjoy all the uncut songs here on DVD, as well as the behind-the-scenes commentary and a documentary on the making of the episode. The season is rounded out by the hilarious "Tabula Rasa," wherein Willow's memory spell goes awry; the return of Riley Marc Blucas in "As You Were"; Anya Emma Caulfield and Xander's Nicholas Brendon wedding in "Hell's Bells"; and the devastating season-ending story arc of "Seeing Red," "Villains," "Two to Go," and finally "Grave" -- in which a grieving Willow attempts to destroy the world, and Spike seeks to prove to Buffy how much he really loves her.
