This week, TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks about the best episodes of a tv series you've seen. Can you tell what are your favorite episodes of any tv series? List as many as you like. Say why they are the best.
I ran into the question at another blog that I enjoy reading. He challenged his readers to answer the question too, so I am going to tell you my favorite episodes from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I am only slightly embarrassed to tell you that Buffy is one of my all time favorite shows. I never said that I wasn't a big dork. And yes I was an adult when I started watching it. :)
I especially loved the relationship between Buffy and Spike. That will probably be obvious from my choices.
My answers are:
"Something Blue" from Season Four. This is the episode where one of Willow's spells inadvertently makes Buffy and Spike think that they are in love. This one was hilarious. They were so far from in love at this point, but it was great foreshadowing.
"Fool For Love" from Season 5. A lot of history on Spike. I love Spike.
"Crush" Season 5. Spike offers to kill Drusilla to prove his love for Buffy. Loving the love...even though Buffy doesn't return his feelings. And I hate Drusilla, so offering to kill her was wonderful.
"The Body" from Season 5. Buffy's Mom died. It was really awful. But the stillness of the episode really made you feel the powerful loss. It was very sad, but a very well made episode.
"The Gift" Season 5 Finale. Buffy dies to save her sister. This one to me showed once and for all that Spike had truly changed his ways. There is no more evil Spike after this, just crazy in love with Buffy Spike.
"Once More, With Feeling" Season 6. The musical episode. It might sound dopey, but this was my favorite episode of all.
"Smashed" Season 6. Buffy and Spike bring down the house. This episode was just hot. Truly.
"Gone" Season 6. Invisible Buffy takes advantage of the situation.
"Beneath You" Season 6. Buffy Finds out that Spike got his soul back.
"Touched" Season 7. Spike comforts Buffy. There was a lot of sex between these two in Season 6, but this is really the first episode where there is intimacy from both sides. So tragic.
"Chosen" Season 7. Series Finale. Spike dies to save Buffy, the Scoobies, and the other slayers. I know that many people think that the Buffy/Angel romance was better, but really Spike died to save her, tragic romantic love at its finest.
Now its your turn....
