Adventures on the Hellmouth: BtVS S2 and S6. Here's an interesting essay that uses Campbell's "Hero's Journey" to critique Buffy S2 and (unusually) S6.
I'm not sure I'm entirely sold on Campbell as an analytical tool - it's a little too sloppy, you can make it fit pretty much anything - but it's an interesting take on the two seasons. It's particularly interesting on the structure of S6, which nobody has talked about that much, perhaps because it's hard to get a grip on.
