      Hmmm some of those I expected. Others are... surprising lol


      • #4
        Which ones?! I am an odd one though you shouldn't be surprised. My opinions don't alway reflect what other's think. I was going to put Where the Wild Things Are in for After Life but just decided to leave it as is. But if you want the top 21 then add WtWTA to that and there you go.

          I was really surprised that Enemies was your winner. I love the episode, but it never really stood out to me. The next few choices, I totally agree. Amazing episodes. Some of the more surprising episodes were Listening to Fear (as you may have guessed lol), Two to Go, Him in a big way, When She Was Bad, Prophecy Girl, and especially Anne.

          List your top ANGELs!

            1. I Will Remember You
            2. Sanctuary

            I don't watch Angel. Those are the only two I've seen repeatedly and have taped other than that I never got too invested into the show to go and buy all the dvds. I did watch it when it was still on tv though.

            Enemies is just the one episode I can watch repeatedly without ever disliking it. Other episodes get old after awhile. It's like watching The Gift for the millionth time. It doesn't have that umpf to it like it did the 1st time you saw it. Enemies has that mostly because it isn't a major episode. Plus it just has that sweet ending with the best dialogue ever! I don't know what it is with all those other episodes but I just love them. Although Him kind of gets thrown all over the place. Some days I love it some days I hate it. Listening to Fear is just my favorite Joyce episode. I her line: "I wish someone would've let me know there was tennis being played. I just didn't know." That's just too good. If I had a little more time thinking about it instead of you guys just randomly asking me out of the blue about my top 20, my list may be a little different. IDK if you've been on here awhile you would've seen me explain plenty of times why I love them. Like I said, I'm odd. If you're really curious though, go to the Episodes Explanation style and just start reading.

                  Doing a Buffy "top episodes" is pretty hard.


                  • #10
                    I feel compelled to do this. I have a truly awful memory, so there's a more than likely chance I might have forgotten certain episodes that should be on the list. I did it off the top of my head, thinking that if I could choose only 20 episodes to watch ever again, these are the ones I'd pick.

                    In No Order:

                    • Not Fade Away
                      City Of
                      A Hole in the World
                      You're Welcome
                      Five by Five
                      Waiting in the Wings
                      The Trial
                      Smile Time

                    • Restless
                      The Gift
                      Becoming, Part 2
                      Graduation Day, Part 1
                      Graduation Day, Part 2
                      The Body
                      Band Candy
                      Prophecy Girl
                      Conversations with Dead People
                      Faith, Hope & Trick
                      Bad Girls
                      Who Are You?
                      New Moon Rising
                      The Wish

                    I think I got most of 'em. Who else is completely bloody grateful that they don't actually have to pick just 20 to watch ever again?


                    • #11

                      19. You're Welcome
                      20. Shells

                      Funny, I had a hard time finding my favourite 20 episodes for BtVS. The first 7 were without a question my favourite episode's ... but after that it became difficult. And that my favourite episodes are in the first seasons. The difference between my love for #1 and #20 is really big, where the difference between #1 and #20 of Ats, is less big. I love the best episodes of BtVS more as every Ats episode ever made, but almost all the 20 Ats episodes are above the last 10 of my favourite BtVS episodes.

                        Nina, by your list, I guess you?re not a big fan of the later seasons, mostly 6 & 7.


                        • #13
                          That's right, I love the first 3 seasons, I enjoy the next two seasons. But the last two seasons I try to forget. (But I like the first 6/7 episodes of season 7, but the rest of the season is awful IMO, which made me sad, because the first 7 episodes had potential.)

                              I have to say that a lot of different list show up. And I?m sensing a trend of episodes concerning more the early seasons. And that?s good. That?s another reason I like Buffy, a lot of people pick different episodes or seasons, have different tastes.


                              • #16
                                Since I never really got into Angel, I'll only be listing my Top 20 Buffy episodes (and this was hard!)

                                1. The Body
                                2. Once More, With Feeling

                                  Buffyforever, your list is pretty good. You have a lot of interesting choices.

                                      I was never a Buffy fan, so my attempt has to resolve around Angel. Sadly, I wasn`t able to list my Top Ten. It`s actually impossible to list them in that way, however - I have one favorite:

                                      Are you now or have you ever been.

                                      This is for me the best episode ever made trough all 5 seasons of Angel. It`s such a gem, the theme, the writing, the acting, the choices made by both photographer and director.
