Buffy the Vampire Slayer [season 3] (1998-1999)

This has always been my favourite season of Buffy, even though it is possibly not the best. It features a couple of strong episodes, but also a number of weak ones. One of season 3’s strengths lies in the fact that the combination of new and returning characters provides an excellent mix. […]
