Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is up there in my all time top ten favourite tv shows....Everyday if I'm home at 12 o'clock midday I am sat eating my lunch wathcing Buffy on the SyFy Channel!! I'd say for the last couple of years they have played the whole show....7 series of it again and again.....Do I get bored of it? Never!!

"In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer"

Starring Sarah Michelle Gellerthis show is about Buffy, a teenage slayer, who being expelled from her old school, has to move to Sunnydale, which just happens to be the hell mouth. She attends Sunnydale Highschool and develops a close friendship with Willow Rosenburg, Xander Harris and her watcher Rupert Giles. They repeatedly have to save the world from never ceasing evil while Buffy has to deal with her tangled love life, including Angel, a vampire cursed with a soul... 

My favorite episodes in no particular order....

Hush!! - Season 4 - Episode 10 

The Gentlemen come to Sunnydale and steal the town’s voices as they hunt for seven hearts. For a show known for its witty banter in the entire episode, there are only 17 minutes of dialog....Not a lot considering it's 40 odd minutes long!! Also the only episode of Buffy to be nominated for an Emmy....

The Gift - Season 5 - Episode 22

This episode is really, really sad but Buffy finally learns what the first Slayer meant when she said “Death is your gift.” Buffy selflessly gives that gift to her baby sister Dawn, dying in her place. But after that manage to come back for two more series... Hurrah!

The Body - Season 5 - Episode 16 

“Mom, mom, mommy?” The lack of soundtrack when Buffy finds her mum dead is just stunningly sad. Her reaction and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s acting are perfect. Her waiting for the ambulance helplessly just beautifully illustrated how even the powerful Slayer is a slave to mortality and human emotions. Just flawless and horrifying. 

Once More With Feeling - Season 6 - Episode 7 

They pulled off a musical episode.!! Nowadays, with the likes of Glee musical episodes are a weekly occurrence, but back in 2001, when “Once More, with Feeling” aired, it was a rarity. The songs are good and the dancing is good and it’s a super well-done episode. It’s basically a ‘Buffy’ classic.


  1. Hush is my favourite episode!!! The song the little girl says in Buffy's dream sticks in my head.

    Another one of my favourite episodes is the end of season 2 where Buffy sends Angel to hell. I love the song at the end of the episode.

    I am a big big buffy fan and used to tape (Yes VHS) the episodes when they were on BBC2. I still have them now.

    1. Can't even shout, Can't even cry, The gentlemen are coming by....That's all I remember from Still creeps me out!!
      Ohh yes love that episode where Buffy sends Angel to hell....Just watched it last week on He's back from hell now...Phew...

  2. Hush is my favourite episode, it's fantastic! Mind you the musical episode is a close second, we often listen to the soundtrack in the car, much to the kids annoyance ;-)
