    These two were minor big bads. But made impact on certain characters:

    Sunday and her crew kicked Buffy's ass
    Veruca broke up Willow and Oz also causing Oz to leave Wil and Sunnydale.

    But which female villain that only appeared once do you prefer? Veruca or Sunday

    Sunday! I hate, hate Veruca. The actress who played her did a terrible job and the writing for the character was just as bad. She was, in a way, a femme fatale and those kind of characters take a lot of skill to portray. Very few actresses manage to portray them without being clich├ęs or looking stupid with their hooded eyes and shameless flirting. Veruca was not a successful example of a femme fatale. She was annoying and idiotic.
    Sunday was kind of fun and snarky. She had a great death. Loved her pose!

    We did a podcast episode with a similar subject, except we did Sunday vs Kathy from Living Conditions. Sunday was my choice. Still is. :)
     
    Living Dead Boy: Now....if Sunday and Kathy was the question, I'd probably pick Kathy. Living Conditions slays me everytime, I'm sorry. So many funny moments!

    I'd have to go with Sunday too. Not because she was anything special, she was just another snarky vamp, but because Verucca was so awful. She wasn't in the least bit sexy or attractive, and had no chemistry with Oz.

    I'm with the general consensus here. Veruca was awful. Her mimesinging was so gross to watch and I didn't buy her as a vixen that was capture the attention of Oz or Giles. To be fair, Sunday would have done the role more justice. Sunday was fun. I loved the way she snarked about how stereotypical and boring all the college students were. I didn't need more of her, but she served her purpose well. Unless Veruca.

    Sundae is my pick too, big impact for one episode. The story/episode is easily relatable for school age and its just great at the end when buffy wins.

    Sunday by default because Veruca makes me want to break my tv. I hate her entire storyline. Sunday was kinda funny, especially with the poster tally thing. And the way Buffy killed Sunday was really cool.

    Surely it's no competition? Sunday hands down. It would've been interesting to see more of Sunday, not for a whole season but perhaps a couple of episodes. Just imagine if her group came into contact with Spike's group during "The Harsh Light of Day", it would've been great to see a vampire fight over territory.

    Definitely Sunday. Veruca couldn't act. She couldn't even lip sync right. If you muted the scenes when she'd be singing, you'd think she was singing hard rock, her mouth was wide open. (Even though I love those songs, by the way. The real band's name's THC, and I can't think of season 4 without thinking of "Overfire", the song played in "Beer Bad" (that piano riff....sorry, the inner music nerd comes out sometimes :oops:).

    I agree with, well everyone else.
    Sunday stands out as a monster of the week in a somewhat surprising but still brilliant way.

    Veruca on the other hand just feels like a simple tool for Oz's story. Nothing makes me want to know more about her really.

    Uh, Sunday, for sure. Veruca was terrible and the poor girl had something wrong with her neck.
