It's sort of sad how these Watcher's Guides have faded through the seasons. The first and second volumes consisted of the first seasons episode guides, (two in each volume), but they also had an awesome monster guide (before they put out the big official Monster Book), and guides to the main relationships and even in depth backgrounds on everyone from Marti Noxen and Joss Whedon to the stunt doubles and make up guys.

But, with Volume Three, not only did it stuff three seasons into the book, but instead of some sort of interesting minutia from the show, or even just the episode guide, this volume had the most vapid and sorta uninspiring essays by what seemed to be fans. Some of the essays were better than others of course, but with the other two volumes having so much amazing info and this one simply having some essays (and none of them really touching on the topic of Willow, Tara or hell even Kennedy or the Potentials, it just seemed like a let down.

So, for the episode guide in it, which was a good as usual this gets two stars, but the rest of the book gets no stars at all. It was horrible. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689869843, Paperback)

As long as there have been vampires, there has been the Slayer. One girl in all the world, to find them where they gather and to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers.

From the first vampire staking to the last glimpse of Sunnydale, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a genre-busting hit, attracting millions of fans worldwide. The last three seasons ran the gamut from an episode without music to a musical episode, from the arrival of a teenage sister to the death of Buffy (again).

Now the third volume in this best-selling series of companions will break down every episode of seasons five, six, and seven -- from the villains and the victims to quotables and love bytes -- as well as take a wide-ranging look back at the entire run of the show.

Additional features:

• Flashback Foreshadowing: A line-by-line deconstruction of the portents in the season four finale, "Restless"

• "Lost" lines of dialogue, stage directions, and descriptions cut from the original teleplays

• The Trio's Pop-Culture Explosion: Mastering the references of Geek Speak

• Critical (and not-so) essays from a variety of contributors on topics from Buffy's romantic optimism to Dawn's unfulfilled potential

Seven years, 144 episodes, 3 Slayers, 3 principals, 2 networks, 2 vampires with souls, 2 Watchers, 2 pigs, 1 Master, 1 Mayor, and 1 hit show (with tons of Potentials): It all adds up to one must-have volume!
