Barnes & Noble -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.
