My Top Ten Buffy episodes



I love this show, and I don't care what anyone says about the plausability of a vampire slayer, or SMG playing one, or the storyline or whatever. This is my single favorite show of all time, and I'm paying homage to it. I love it, I have the DVD box sets, and I will defend it to those naysayers. Still reading? Sweet. So, here are my top ten Buffy the Vampire Slayer eisodes.


1. Angel Season one
Buffy's attraction to Angel grows, until she learns he's a vampire, and possibly attacked her mother. She learns of his innocence, and other things too.

Why? Not only did we learn about the mysterious Angel, but this episode started the forbidden romance between Buffy and Angel. It also realistically potrayed Buffy's teen lust for the brooding, older vampire.


2. Once More With Feeling Season six
A musical demon is summoned to Sunnydale and makes everyone sing the truth.

Why? A remarkable music episode that pushed the story line, brought out secrets and opened up dark doors. Well done, well told. And, was a muscical?


3. Hush Season five
A trio of demons, The Gentlemen, come to Sunnydale for their collection of hearts, and they take all towns voices so no one can hear you scream.

Why? Dark, scary,creepy and told in almost all silence. Not every TV show can pull that off.



4. The Wish Season three
Cordelia, freshly broken up with Xander, wishing from the demon Anya that Buffy had never come to Sunnydale. Anya, still with powers, grants it and shows Cordy a slayerless Sunnydale in all its mayhem.

Why? A surpurb blend of comedy, dark, sarcasm and metaphor. It was also a chance for perfect role reversal with a chilling look at all the scoobies either dead or killing each other.

5. Dopplegangland Season three
Willow's evil doppleganger comes to town and wants to spend all her free time killing.

Why? Another wonderful blend of comedy and dark.



6. The Prom Season three
Buffy and Angel realize that their differences are too much to ignore. Angel decides they should break up.

Why? Buffy and Angel realize their love can't survive their differences, and Angel makes the hard choice of leaving Sunnydale. Heartbreaking for true fans, especially B/A shippers. Key scene was B/A dancing at her prom. Sad and uplifting at the same time.


7. Conversations With Dead People Season six
Buffy, Dawn and Willow talk to the past dead, but they aren't actually talking to them at all -- the first manipulates and shatters all three.

Why In the structure of the season it had a lot to say and made great use of characters' past. It was interesting and the first all talk ep with little, to no fighting/death and everyone stays seperated.



8. Becoming part II Season two
The evil Angelus wants to destroy the world, but Willow restores his soul. But not before he opened the portal to hell, which Buffy has to throw him in in order to close it.

Why? Buffy loses everything and is truely devasted. She flees the town, which breaks my heart. And she had to kill her first true love.

9. Passion Season three Evil Angel taunts the Scoobies, kills a friend and makes life miserable for the core four.

Why? Another dark turn from Angelus, emotionally stalling and creepy. An excellent story by rare writer Ty King. Angel's VO's are exceptionally well done.


10. Enemies season three Buffy and Angel trick Faith in order to gain info into the Mayors evil plan. But it leaves a crack in Buffy and Angel's relationship.

Why? A well written episode with a few surprises. It definelty cements Faith in the psycho bitch catagory and puts B/A on thin ice. I love the last five minutes.


Well, that's all she wrote. So may episodes, so little time.
