I havent watched the episodes of season 7 since they aired. So when I bought the DVD set and watched the episodes this weekend, it was almost like watching new episodes. I had forgotten how incredible the last few episodes of Buffy were. This isn't going to be a detailed review, but I just have to say, watching Buffy from start to finish is an experience like no other. Watching the overall arc of the show, seeing how they bring it back full circle is just amazing. It makes the writer in me very jealous of the talent and creativity involved in making this show. And it makes the fan in me wish for more. Joss Whedon says there may be a Spike TV movie at some point, and I'm hoping for that, because I want to check back in with these characters sometime soon.
So check out Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the show, not the movie) on DVD if you want to see what the fuss is about. You will not regret it.
