    You guys must already know about my thing with ranking episodes and such :rolleyes: and I thought about making another "game" out of it. For every episode out of 22 episodes per season, choose your favorite one.

    Is it weird that I really like doing this? :oops::oops:

    My personal choices:

    Buffy

    1.
    When She Was Bad
    2. Real Me
    3. Witch
    4. Fear, Itself
    5. Selfless
    6. Band Candy
    7. Angel
    8. Pangs
    9. The Wish
    10. Amends
    11. Showtime
    12. Prophecy Girl
    13. Surprise
    14. Innocence
    15. This Year's Girl
    16. The Body
    17. Enemies
    18. Earshot
    19. I Only Have Eyes For You
    20. The Prom
    21. Becoming, Part 1
    22. Becoming, Part 2

    Angel

    1.
    Deep Down
    2. Are You Now or Have You Ever Been
    3. In the Dark
    4. Slouching toward Bethlehem (such slim pickings for this one)
    5. Dear Boy
    6. Spin the Bottle
    7. Apocalypse, Nowish
    8. I Will Remember You
    9. Lullaby
    10. Reunion
    11. Somnambulist
    12. You're Welcome (or maybe Calvary)
    13. Salvage
    14. Smile Time
    15. Reprise
    16. Shells (could have easily been Epiphany...)
    17. Underneath
    18. Origin (it was almost Five by Five)
    19. Sanctuary
    20. A New World
    21. Blind Date
    22. Not Fade Away

    Both of my lists are pretty solid. My Buffy list has most of my favorite episodes, but my Angel list is excellent apart from a couple of episodes (Dear Boy, Slouching toward Bethlehem). I could definitely do a quick Buffyverse binge watch with both lists!
     
    Mr Trick: Cool idea! Will give it a bash.
    The Bronze: I'm just too indecisive / lazy for this but will give you a round of applause for the effort
    Priceless: Maybe you could do a 'least favourite' list too
    Zenseem, Antho and Xanderectomy like this.

    Season 3: 5
    Season 4: 5
    Season 5: 3
    Season 6: 1
    Season 7: 0

    Angel

    1. City Of
    2. Are You Now Or Have You Ever Been
    3. In The Dark
    4. Untouched
    5. RM W/A Vue

    21. Through the looking glass
    22. To Shanshu in L.A.

    Season 1: 7
    Season 2: 6
    Season 3: 2
    Season 4: 3
    Season 5: 3

    Conclusion : I love way too many episodes, I felt bad for not picking some I still consider favorites. I don't care for any of the episodes 4 for AtS though. I'm surprised at how much episodes I have from season 1... It's not my favorite season but it has a lot of my favorite episodes and they make me feel nostalgic.

    5. Life Serial!
    6. Band Candy (close call with Halloween, both got Ethan Rayne. Lol)
    7. Once More, With Feeling
    8. Tabula Rasa
    9. The Wish
    10. Hush
    11. Gone (these are some bad choices too)
    12. Helpless (maybe)
    13. The Zeppo!
    14. Innocence (close call with Bad Girls)
    15. This Year's Girl

    18. Dirty Girls
    19. I Only Have Eyes For You
    20. The Prom
    21. Graduation Day pt1
    22. Restless

    Season 1: 1
    Season 2: 4
    Season 3: 8 (not surprising. Lol)
    Season 4: 4
    Season 5: 0 (again not surprising. Lol)

    At the suggestion of @Priceless, these are my picks for least favorite episodes. Share yours!

    Buffy

    1.
    The Freshman
    2. Beneath You
    3. The Replacement
    4. Flooded
    5. Life Serial
    6. Wild at Heart (I can't get throught the Veruca parts *shudders*)
    7. Fool for Love (I just want to smash Spike's face in)
    8. Sleeper (again, Spike)
    9. Smashed (gag me, Spike should have fallen on a piece of wood while the house was falling down, and who knew you can have sex with your pants on? Is that a slayer thing?)
    10. Wrecked (ugh)
    11. Triangle (Buffy crying over Riley while hunting down the next guy is annoying)
    12. Doublemeat Palace
    13. Dead Things
    14. Crush (this episode is beyond disgusting. Can someone please remind me why Buffy didn't stake Spike? Never mind...)
    15. Get It Done
    16. Hell's Bells (don't mind this episode though)
    17. Lies My Parents Told Me (almost tied with Normal Again, but LMPTM irks me way more)
    18. Intervention
    19. Empty Places
    20. Touched
    21. The Weight of the World
    22. Restless

    S1: 0
    S2: 0
    S3: 0
    S4: 3
    S5: 6
    S6: 7
    S7: 6

    Angel

    1.
    Conviction
    2. Just Rewards
    3. Unleashed
    4. Untouched? Carpe Noctem? I Fall to Pieces? (Good grief, I don't like any episode)
    5. Life of the Party
    6. The Cautionary Tale of Numero Cinco
    7. Offspring
    8. Destiny
    9. Harm's Way
    10. Soul Purpose
    11. Birthday
    12. Provider
    13. She
    14. Couplet
    15. Loyalty (love all of the episodes though)
    16. Players
    17. Eternity
    18. Double or Nothing
    19. The Price
    20. The Girl in Question
    21. Power Play
    22. Tomorrow

    S1: 2
    S2: 1
    S3: 8
    S4: 1
    S5: 10

    I do not ever want to watch this selection of episodes alone.

    Btw, just a small correction, but my pick for the best seventeenth episode is Forever, not Enemies.

    If the last scene was written fairly to all characters, I could get behind it, but the last scene was way too over the top (kicking Buffy out of her own house? Really? Who wrote this trash?) But it was obviously meant to be seen as Buffy the poor heroic woobie (plus sexy vampire Spike to the rescue) and everyone else sucks (sad betrayers as Spike described them.) That's why I can't stomach it. That last scene was nothing but character bashing fanfic. I can understand a Spuffy fan liking it - their ship was glorified on expense of every single character in the show. But I love the Scoobies and seeing the show turn them into ungrateful jackasses in the very last episodes of the very last season - nope, episodes SUCKS!

    Well I'm not a Spuffy fan, and the Spuffy moment doesn't come until the next episode Touched. Besides Buffy is the one that says "I can't stay here and watch he lead you", it's Dawn that then says "then you can't stay here". Plus Faith does go after Buffy. No to mention Xander just lost an eye! I think Faith and Willow basically say that Buffy needs a break and to clear her head a bit. So I never really see it as "bashing" Buffy. Maybe Anya and Kennedys comments. The problem is that Giles and Willow don't say anything against Buffy leaving. And like I said there's plenty to enjoy about the episode before the ending. But I get it, sometimes a bad ending will just ruin the whole thing.

    It's not bashing Buffy. It's bashing everyone else. The sad ungrateful traitors, what a sad, sad way to describe the people who were by Buffy's side from the beginning. What a sad and disgracing way to write these characters right at the end of the season. Both Empty Places and Touched tell us that Buffy is right and was wronged by every single character on the show - who happened to be in that scene - except for the love interest of course. We don't even get scenes where Xander, Willow, Dawn and Giles worry about Buffy, try to stop her, or even express how sorry they were for treating her that way. Nothing. They're not real people anymore. Just pods with no feelings. (It would have been okay if a handful of characters were against Buffy while some backed her up, you know, different opinions and all, these are different characters with different views and motives. Not all of them are gonna think the same thing.)

    I've read Spander fics like this before: the Scoobies hating on poor woobie Xander and kicking him out of the group for whatever reason (his uselessness, the lie, summoning Sweet, hating Angel, take your pick) and then Spike swoops in, calls the Scoobies on their crap and then comforts a lonely Xander. But at least those were fan works. I never thought the show would stoop this low.
