Much of Season 2's success is due to the incredibly compelling villains in Spike, Dru and Angelus. They made a mesmerizing team, mostly due to the charisma of the actors and the chemistry they shared with one another. The Mayor was wonderfully delightful, eccentric and even a sympathetic character. Buffy villains always stood out when they had deeper motivations/human feelings. Contrast these two season Big Bads with Adam and it seems to me that Spike/Dru/Angelus and The Mayor stood out.
