“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” first aired 20 years ago.
In honor of the cult classic, here is a list of my top 10 favorite episodes.
10. S4, E22 “Restless”
The “Scooby gang” falls asleep after a big battle, and have weird dreams and nightmares.
9. S3, E6 “Band Candy”
The grown ups eat candy that make them act like teenagers.
8. S2, E6 “Halloween”
Each character becomes their Halloween costume, which makes it hard to defeat the forces of evil.
7. S5, E7 “Fool for Love”
We learn more about bad boy vampire Spike, and how he killed two Slayers.
6. S2, E22 “Becoming, Part Two”
Buffy’s best finale against her toughest opponent: the love of her life Angel.
5. S4, E19 “New Moon Rising”
Willow comes out of the closet, and her ex-boyfriend returns to Sunnydale to get back together.
4. S4, E10 “Hush”
Everyone in town can’t talk, which leads to funny misunderstandings and clear communication.
3. S5, E16 “The Body”
The most thoughtful TV episode (ever) in portraying grief. The lack of music makes you feel numb.
2. S6, E6 “Tabula Rasa”
The funniest episode, in my opinion. Everyone forgets who they are and they try to piece together what happened.
1. S6, E7 “Once More, With Feeling”
A musical episode that has the biggest character reveal.
