Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Patricia Kim O'Cone
Season 3
High school can be hell -- but for Buffy Summers and her friends, it's a Hell Mouth. In its third season, Joss Whedon's supernatural soap opera took a walk on the dark side. As her senior year unfolds, Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) attempts to pass biology, save the town from evil, and score the keys to the car. For the barely legal slayer, this year is full of challenges, hard choices, and shocking surprises: her vampire soul mate, Angel (David Boreanaz), returns from the netherworld; the impulsive new slayer, Faith (Eliza Dushku), proves to be more than a handful; and Mayor Wilkins (Harry Groener) has a plan that's more diabolical than political. Season 3 experienced programming troubles during its 1999 run: After the tragic events at Columbine High School, the episodes "Earshot" and "Graduation Day Part 2" were held back from broadcast because of their coincidentally controversial content. Fans carped as the latter episode, the cliff-hanging season finale, was postponed for several months. Nonetheless, viewers were treated to one of the best-yet seasons of this ever-maturing show.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Complete Third Season 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 33 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Buffy series at it strongest. Buffy's crew was at it strongest this season. Buffy, Angel, Willow, Oz, Zander, Cordelia, and Giles. The crew is never stronger than this season. This season shows how strong Angel and Buffy are. Angel returns from Hell. He'd endured torture beyond imagination, and survived it. His strength allowed him to regain his humanity. Faith helps demonstrate how strong Buffy is. The Slayer power was more than Faith could handle. She became a monster - beyond any vamp and allied with demons.. Buffy had to stop another slayer and .in doing so. showed the fans that her true strength comes from being Buffy - not from being the Slayer.

I CANT WAIT!!!! Season 3 is what Ive been waiting for!!! I love one and two but 3 is IT!! The end is bittersweet and exciting. I love everything about it, its got Faith, the Mayor, Angel:), action, intrigue, love, hate, DRAMA, and best of all... Buffy kicks A**!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
i really enjoyed this season. season 5 and 3 are my favorites and season 7 is awesome. I no when this cums out im gonna be like the first person at target to buy it.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Buffy season 3 is going to be great, I just finished watching and episode of season 2 and I still get anxious when the judge almost kills buffy and angel I wish all of them would come out all at once. I want to also get Angel season 1 for DVD. If you like Buffy u will like the Angel seasons.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I really can't wait for this to come out. I love Buffy and Angel. They are the ultimate pair. Their love for each other will never die. I don't care that they are on seperate shows. I loved Season 1 and Season 2. But Season 3 is the best!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
It is impossible to talk about Season 3 without at least mentioning Faith. She is the reason I got hooked on the show. I didn't watch Seasons 1 and 2 (although I have seen repeats in SYN.) and I figured I'd give it a try. Faith is my favorite character and I think she made Season 3!
Guest More than 1 year ago
Season 3 of BTVS kicked it up a few steps. It is the best in my opinion. You have the end of high school and the bittersweet end of Buffy and Angel. Not to mention Faith's character who blew everyone away. No one expected her. This season really brought a new audience to the show. Well done!

Season three is one of the best seasons eva i luv this sho is my favorie!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
Hey! I saw someone put that Faith made the season, but the show wouldn't even exist without buffy! I should know, i've seen every show from season one.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Personally, I much prefer seasons 2 and 7 to 3, but, hey... it's Buffy, so it'll top anything else available on TV, video or in the cinema :) The one thing I have been dying to learn is why seasons 1 to 5 are available in Germany on DVD (with the godawful German synchronization), while the season 3 DVD is just about to come out in the US. Any insights anyone?
Guest More than 1 year ago
I know this is not out on DVD yet, but I have seen all of the episodes. The Mayor really takes the villain aspect of Buffy to a new level.
Guest More than 1 year ago

Guest More than 1 year ago
Buffy is the best show ever! I have watched it ever since it came out! I love it. I loved season 3 but season 4 is my favorite! I can't wait til it comes out on DVD.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I love this show and i've been waiting for ever for the 3rd season to come out. Its one of the best seasons ever in my opinion!
Guest More than 1 year ago
season 3 was a begining of a kick jump to the heart of the charters in the show buffy we see willow in a new light, xander. This is when everyone comes alive and you really... and get the dialog. it gives us credit as viewers. a smarter show all real buffy fan this is a must have collection.
Guest More than 1 year ago
It's a legal thing. Reruns I think. Some companys in US hold the right to show reruns before dvd's can come out. In europe we dont have that problem.

I think that the Third season was great but it leaves no anticipation for the fourth season as its predecessor does. There are so many questions left at the end of season two that you desperately want to see it's followup but at the end of Season Three, it seems like, if we didn't know better, that the series was over. Buffy had defeated the final monster and now Angel was in LA, Faith was in a coma, and the Slayer had finished high school. It does seem logical that there would be a fourth season but you don't feel a burning desire to see it because it would just be starting a brand new phase in the Buffster's life. Maybe it would even be a new series, Buffy: The College Years or something. I also don't think it gave a great comeback from Season Two. It was, in a sense, fairly non-climactic. It gave the ''expected'' answer to what happened afterwards. It didn't seem to really pick up with the same mood that season two had: a mood of depression and abandonment. Buffy'd had enough guts to pick up her weight and get a job, a place to live, and, basically, a new life.

SEASON 3 ROCKS!!! ANGEL RETURNS, THE GANG GRADUATES, THEN ANGEL LEAVES AGAIN. VERY EMOTIONAL!! LOVED THE PROM WITH ANGEL IN HIS TUX. MAYBE SOMEDAY WE CAN EXPECT AN ANGEL/BUFFY REUNION!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago
It amazes me how well done these sets are - Season 3 is absolutely one of the best Seasons of Buffy and it remains to be well done and at a great price.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I believe that Season Three Buffy the Vampire Slayer on DVD is the best season. It gives all of the eps in perfect quality and it has really great featurettes. Eliza Dushku and Sarah Michelle Gellar are great actresses and David Boreanaz does a wonderful job. A definite must have and cannot be passed up! Buy it now! Must be added to any Buffy the Vampire Slayer collection.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Buffy Season 3 is what I think is the best season of Buffy. Season 2 was great with the Angel/Buffy, but season 3 rekindles that and introduces a whole new aspect to Buffy: CHANGE! Buffy is preparing for and having to deal with major changes. New Watcher, new Slayer, new Evil, and the coming changes of new School, and a new life without Angel. It really tosses things up. Plus I think the episode with Anya is great!
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is one the best DVDs out there!!! Whoever does not buy this collection is truly missing out on something spectacular.

Buffy the vampire slayer season three is the best set of DVDs you can buy. If you thought season two was good, season three is great. There are great features and the audio commentary is excellent.

I Wasnt A Buffy Fan Until I Saw Season 3. Its a Fun Action Packed Season in Which You'll Never Forget. The Acting Is Supurb and Scripts are Cleverly Hilarious.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This season of buffy is to me the best. It is funny, action packed, scary, and is emotional. It isn't just a show about a girl fighting bad things, it's about growing up and relationships also. I LOVE BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER!!!!!!
