What's your favorite "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" episode?

I love everything Buffy and have since day two of the series. There are so so many great moments that always stand out, but favorite entire episode, at least for me, would have to be....

"The Prom"
Spoiler:
this is where Buffy gets the umbrella award for "Class Protector" from Jonathan at the dance and then Angel comes to be her date.
Great ep.

Other notables are: "Becoming Part II", "Graduation Day Part II", "Hush", and "Once More With Feeling".

Yours??

Great ep. So many from this series. I always liked Hush (the Gentlemen are seriously freaky). I also liked the one where Buffy loses her powers and has to outwit the vamp. And then the one where the big baddie they are fighting is three inches tall (classic Buff moment - Giles reading the caption of the picture).

I'd say....either..."Passion" or "Doppelgangland."

Passion is just...amazing...and heart wrenching...if you don't feel anything in that episode, then you must not feel anything at all.

Doppelgangland is just awesome...and I love the evil Willow. I also love that this ep is the first place we get a clue that Willow is in fact a lesbian. I love it.

I Only Have Eyes for You, just for the exchange between Spike, Drusilla, and Angelus about Drusilla sleeping underground.

Once More With Feeling is my favorite, with Hush a close second.

My favorite is probably "Once More with Feeling". The best is probably "The Body".

"Dopplegangland" hands down. Everything about that episode is outstanding.

I also love OMWF, The Prom, The Body and Prophecy Girl.

OMWF followed closely by Hush, The Body, and Into the Woods (I hated the Riley character and was glad to finally see him leave).

Some great ones have been mentioned, but personally I believe The Wish to be the best episode of the series...

'Nightmares,' 'Passions,' 'Amends,' 'the Body,' 'Normal Again,' & 'Bring on the Night' are notiable additions IMO as well...

Once More with Feeling, Hush, and The Body are the ones that immediately come to mind.

"Hush." The scene when they're meeting and they have the drawings and the hand motions was hilarious.

The best scene was in "The Body" where Buffy discovers Joyce and the aftermath of that with Giles and the paramedics. That was an emmy-worthy performance from SMG in that scene.

Let me be the first here to trumpet the greatness of both "Once More, With Feeling", and "The Body". Also, I hear "Hush" is pretty good...

Once More With Feeling. The best non finale. Most of the finales are up there at the same level, but they're just different in the sense that they tie in with arc and are really intense. OMWF was unique and masterfully executed.

Other favorites (non finales):

The Body
The Wish
Hush
Doppelgangland
Passion
Fear, Itself
Fool For Love
Spiral
Wild At Heart
Pangs (if only for Spike getting shot up full of arrows while tied to a chair and then freaking out when a bear is made near him while in the chair. Spike: "You made a bear! UNDO IT! UNDO IT!" Classic. )
Something Blue
A New Man (Demon Giles. )
Superstar
This Year's Girl/Who Are You? (two parter)
Tabula Rasa
Life Serial
Normal Again
Seeing Red
Villains
Two To Go
Conversations with Dead People
Storyteller
Lies My Parents Told Me
Dirty Girls
Amends
Lover's Walk
Helpless
The Zeppo
Earshot
The Prom
Enemies
Band Candy
Halloween
Surprise/Innocence (two parter)
Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered
What's My Line Pts 1 & 2
Angel
The Puppet Show
Nighmares
The Pack

I'm sure I'm missing some. What a frackin great show.

4. Once More, With Feeling
5. Who Are You?
6. Family
7. The Wish
8. Hush
9. Something Blue
10. Conversations With Dead People

and, because I reject the wisdom of base-10 math:
11. Innocence

A tie between Beer Bad and Bad Eggs.












For the worst that is.


I'd probably go with Once More With Feeling.

Becoming Part 1 & 2 (two-parter that I consider one episode). The last few minutes are just AMAZING!

"Shh... Just close your eyes."

"Hush" gets the top vote. I also give "Tabula Rasa" an honorable mention.
