My Thoughts:
The Show:
Earlier this month a friend gave me this complete series set... replacing my original release (digipak) season sets. This was perfect timing as I really got in the mood to watch this series again when I watched the Halloween episodes last month. So getting this set was the perfect excuse to watch the series again... after all... I had to make sure all the discs worked right? It has been 5 years since I last re-watched the entire series. And I must say... I really enjoyed every minute of revisiting the series. While i enjoyed this series from start to end... my favorite season has to be the second when we had Evil Angel as the "Big Bad" for the season. My least favorite season has to be season 4.... where Buffy starts college... they add in the Initiative and Adam was the "Big Bad". The only good thing to come out of this season was the introduction of Tara. I remember at the time there was many people that had a problem with the final season where we meet a bunch of the "Potential Slayers" and The First is the final "Big Bad" of the series. At the time I was concerned as well... but as it turned out I enjoyed the season quite a bit... and thought the finale was a very good ending to the series. With that said I would love to see a Reunion Movie air to catch us up on the surviving characters of the series. Sure... we got a season 8 comics... which I have the motion comics DVD of... but I would still love to see more. Preferably with the original cast if possible.

The Packaging:
I wanted to say a little something about the packaging here as well. I like it much better then the original bulky digipaks I had. But it still could have been better. The packaging for this is the 7 re-release keep cases inside a box with a slip cover over it. Which you would think would save a lot of shelf space... but because of an odd choice on how the keep cases are housed it saves very little... if any shelf space. Another downer for this release is that it does not include the extra bonus DVD that the "Chosen Collection" came with.

Final Thoughts:
Over-all it has been a fun two to three weeks revisiting this series. I am thrilled to have upgraded to this complete series set as I really don't care for the digipaks the original season sets were released in. Even though they are the same discs, I do like this packaging better.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
