Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer



Happy Tuesday everyone!  This week's theme for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is a freebie so I elected to talk about one of my favorite tv shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  This week I will be listing my favorite episodes of the show in order by season and episode number.  As there are seven seasons of excellence to choose from, this will be a bit difficult to narrow down!

"School Hard" - Season 2, Episode 3


"Halloween" - Season 2, Episode 6


"I Only Have Eyes For You" - Season 2, Episode 19


"Becoming (Parts 1 & 2)" - Season 2, Episodes 21 and 22


"The Wish"- Season 3, Episode 9


"The Zeppo" - Season 3, Episode 13


"Hush" - Season 4, Episode 10


"Doomed" - Season 4, Episode 11


"Once More With Feeling" - Season 6, Episode 7


"Tabula Rasa" - Season 6, Episode 8


Bonus:

"Superstar" - Season 4, Episode 17



Do  you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and/or Angel?  Do you like my episode selection?  What are some of your favorites?

  1. Wow, great choices! I think I would have picked different ones, but I agree, it's hard with so many awesome episodes to choose from. Once More With Feeling would be on mine for sure:-)

  2. Hooray for Buffy the Vampire Slayer! I still rewatch this series obsessively all these years later. Hush and Once More with Feeling would undoubtedly be on my list. Becoming and Tabula Rasa probably would as well. I would include The Body in my list, no question. It was sad, but it was perfection.

    My TTT!

    1. The Body was a brilliant piece of tv - it would have been my next bonus option - I'm still heart broken just thinking about it now.

  3. I love Buffy! It would be so hard to pick just 10 episodes that were a favorite. The Hush one was pretty good and the episode where they made it a musical was funny too.

  4. I've never seen Buffy myself, but two of my friends at uni were OBSESSED and were always dancing around to a song from an apparent musical episode. Always made me laugh. Hopefully I will get round to watching it at some point in my life. Good choice for TTT :)

  6. I miss that show. If only it had taken place 10 years later, we could have a Supernatural/Buffy crossover.

  11. I absolutely love Buffy!! This is such a good topic. Hush is definitely the creepiest episode! Once More With Feeling is also a favourite. I recently re-watched them all and was surprised how Dawn only annoyed me slightly - no way near the extent she annoyed me when they first aired! Great list! :D

    1. I came into it via reruns around the time it was ending. Sure Dawn's a bit annoying, but she never bothered me as much as she bothered others.

      Thanks!

  18. Once More with Feeling will always be my no 1, but I also really love Tabula Rasa, Hush and Doomed (I mean, when Spike is trying to stake himself. Hysterical). I mean, it's Buffy. It's always epic. Great topic, I really liked your post. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my TTT earlier. :)

  19. I love buffy! I was really pleased with the ending of the show. My favorite episode would have to be when buffy and her sister were on top of a crane or tower. I think it was the end of one season before she became a permanent part of the family.

  23. What a FUN topic, Lauren. I should put something like this together (someday) just as a fun blog post, but I'd be afraid I'd not be able to keep favorite episodes (of my fave TV shows) to a reasonable number. ;D

    Thanks so much (as always) for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon.
