This disc gathers together the best episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer

★★★★

The DVD equivalent of a compilation tape, this disc gathers together the best episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer (as voted for by 1.2 million fans online) in one place. But the four here — Becoming, Part One (the origins of Angel); Graduation Day, Part Two (they blow up the school); Hush (Sunnydale becomes completely silent); and The Gift (Buffy sacrifices herself to save Dawn) — while excellent, sit oddly together.

The fact that two episodes have their equally good halves missing suggests that this is a persuasive ploy to get new Buffy fans to fork out for the box sets instead, especially given how extra-lite this disc is by comparison.
