Buffy The Vampire Slayer:

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

Angel:

Season 3
Season 5
Season 2

My Buffy rankings are pretty much fixed by now but Angel changes all the time (and its really very close)- so it will probably change again once I've completed my watch-through. :)

Buffy: S3, S5, S2, S7, S4, S1, s6


Angel: S5, S4, S2, S1, S3

Buffy Angel comics I'll rank together: A&F S9, Buffy S8, A&F S10 (so far), Buffy S10, Buffy S9 (terrible...)

I don't care about the season arc. That's right. None of them make any sense anyway.
I like to rank them based on standalone episodes they offer.

Rank by the number of very good episodes within the corresponding season:
S3: A lot. Basically all episodes are good.
S4: Hush, Restless, This Year's Girl, Who are you, plus bunch of highly hilarious comedy episodes
S2: Halloween, Surprise, Innocence, Becoming 1/2
S6: OMWF, Tabula Rasa, Normal Again
S1 (tie with S6): Prophecy Girl, The Puppet Show, Witch
S5: The Body, The Gift
S7: Storyteller maybe?

Rank by the lack of terrible episodes:
S3: None. Even the worst episodes in S3 are entertaining.
S5: Listening to Fear sucks.
S2 (tie with S5): Inca Mummy Girl is nonsense.
S1: Teacher's pets and IRYJ
S4: Beer Bad, The I in Team, Goodbye Iowa
S7: 1/4 of all episodes can only be watched once or at most twice.
S6: 1/3 of all episodes can only be watched once or at most twice. Worst offender: The Smashed/Wrecked/Gone/Doublemeat Palace. Four boring, totally unfunny and embarrassingly stupid episodes in a row. What the ****.

Forgot about AtS.

In this show, treating a season as a whole make a little more sense.
S2: The Darla storyline is great. Plus I don't hate Pylea that much.
S5: For the second half.
S3: Darla storyline is as great as S2. Connor one not so much. Fred is abused by the writer as a cute machine with certain skills instead of a character.
S1: Mediocre monster of the week show. The best episodes are crossovers from Buffy.
S4: I hate the treatment of Cordy with a passion. Angelus in the cage is basically a weak Hannibal wannabe. In every episode Conner is a getout-getout-getout-version-Dawn times 100. Even Faith and Willow can't save this season.

Hmm, you liked season 6 of Buffy the best? Really? That is not an opinion I see often.

Also, season 4 of Angel was probably my favorite until Jasmine. It's really just the Angelus arc that does it. I think that was the highlight of the entire Buffyverse for me.

I do! The depression and struggle made it super realistic and relatable for me. I'm not a die hard Spuffy 'shipper or anything, I just thought s6 touched on some real life subjects and the darkness lingering throughout the season was more like the sort of thing I would enjoy in other TV shows I watch.

That is not an opinion I see often.

The same can be said for s4 of AtS.

It's really just the Angelus arc that does it. I think that was the highlight of the entire Buffyverse for me.
That I can somewhat agree with though. I loved the return of Angelus in s4. Especially his interaction with Wesley and Faith. Heart in mouth stuff.

Even though I loved the Angelus arc, I see where people are coming from with the hate for S4. Despite being an extremely high point for me, I still listed S4 relatively low on my list because of all the other hoopla in that season. I liked it pretty much until Cordelia is revealed as evil, and I never liked the Connor/Cordelia relationship. Angelus is just an extremely good, well-written/acted character, and I love whenever he shows up. The latter half of S2 of Buffy is up there for me because of him as well.

I also like s4 of AtS for the introduction of Gwen Raiden! There's a lot of positives to s4, it's just a shame the negatives outweigh them massively.

Oh, I guess I missed it lol. I can't edit my post anymore, but it would go u̶n̶d̶e̶r̶ ̶S̶5̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶a̶b̶o̶v̶e̶ ̶S̶7̶.

edit: Under s7, and above s6 actually... Not a bad season, but season 7 just seemed like it was more coherent and got back to what made Buffy good. Adam seemed dangerous when he was introduced, but his plan and subsequent death were a bit disappointing.
