The Watcher's Guide, Volume Two concerns series 3-4 of the show. It's a great accompaniment that gives you more information about the characters and monsters that feature in the episode, as well as background and in-depth synopsis' of each episode.

It's set out in a decent logical order which makes it very easy to dip in and out of. Whilst the photographs are in black and white in general, there is an insert with some promos and behind-the-scenes photographs which adds to the occasion.

Would've been a 4* had the pictures all been in colour. As it's an official companion that bothered me some. But it's a 3.5* from me anyways.

Recommends it for: Fans of Buffy
How I Came To Read This Book: I was an avid Buffy fan and naturally picked up all 3 volumes of the Watcher’s Guide.

The Plot: Again, the concept is to take a ton of information about Buffy and lump it into one book. Aside from the critical inclusion of an episode guide for seasons 3 & 4 with behind-the-scenes factoids, this time the book basically doubled itself in length with the inclusion of a massive behind-the-scenes undertaking that looks at all of the elements that go into making an epi

Picking up where the first Watcher's Guide left off and detailing seasons three and four of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", Volume 2 has the same sort of inside look at the series as the first but also adds more, making it not only as must read for Buffy fans, but a nice resource for anyone interested in a behind the scenes look at the television world.

Here again are character profiles, interviews with the cast and a thorough guide of the episodes. But with the second volume, they add discussions wi

This is a large book that you just can't breeze through. There is so much information in The Watcher's Guide: Volume 2 that you could be reading this book for months. There are a lot of things that are also included in this book that I have not mentioned; you will have to pick it up to find out about these golden nuggets.

If you love Buffy the Vampire Slayer this is a book that you cannot be without. Personally, it is one of my favorite shows, and I had a great time perusing this books. This boo
I didn't like this Watcher's Guide as much as the first one - about a third of the book was interviews. Sorry, but I don't want to read interviews.
The pictures were great and I loved the background info for the episodes. The quotes are some of my favorites, because the things they say truly make up the show - both hilarious and memorable.
The song list was awesome!
This isn't what I want in a book that's looking at a series as complex as Buffy. This book looks at the episodes very superficially, with pictures and quotes, but without really looking at what the episodes mean. However, it is packed full of interviews with everyone that worked on the show in these seasons, and if that's the sort of thing you like, this book has it in spades.

A fantastic entry into the Watcher's Guide series, Nancy Holder provides interesting tidbits, anecdotes, interviews with cast and crew members, and full-paged color photos. Recommended for Buffy fans.

Someone gave this to me years ago. I'm a massive Buffy fan so can't rate this anything other than perfect score but in reality it is just a blow by blow account of each episode from Season 2 plus a song list and some other bits and bobs.

Yup, another Buffy geek book. I learned a lot of interesting facts about the show. They pretty much examine every aspect of Buffy, if you are into that sort of thing. I am.
