    For me it's...

    1. Prophecy Girl (The one where Buffy dies the first time)
    2. Angel (The one where we find out Angel is a vampire)
    3. Nightmares (The one where the gang's worst fears come to life)
    4. The Puppet Show (The one where the puppet turns out to be the good guy)
    5. The Pack (The one where the principal gets eaten by his own students)
    6. Welcome to the Hellmouth (The one that started it all)
    7. The Harvest (The one where Jesse dies... hardly knew him)
    8. Witch (This one's pretty self-explanatory)
    9. Out of Mind, Out of Sight (The one with the invisible girl)
    10. Never Kill a Boy on The First Date (The one where we realize Joss Whedon will never let his characters be truly happy)
    11. Teacher's Pet (The one where Xander's status as a demon magnet is established)
    12. I Robot, You Jane (The one that goes out of its way to tell us that meeting strangers over the Internet is wrong)

    @Blaze lol. Sorry. Not a big fan of Nightmares and I in did see it recently, still don't think it's great. But to be fair to properly rank each ep I'd have to go back and rewatch s1 again.

    Aww, so sad that everyone rank "I Robot, You Jane" so low.
    I love that episode. All the campy computer stuff is so much fun.

    Only to see Buffy's version of being a detective in a "trench coat" makes it better than many other episodes in season 1. :)

    /SK
     
    Mr Trick: That is a cool moment I agree!
    caitaintdead: I'm actually sad that I ranked it so low but I love a lot of Season 1 episodes!

    1/ Prophecy Girl
    I firmly believe that it is the most iconic episode of BtVS of all time. That 90's outfit!
    2./ Welcome to the Hellmouth
    3./ Never Kill a Boy On the First Date
    Okay, I know it isn't perfect, but it is a fun episode! I love seeing Buffy just dating someone without being all 'in love' and she has the cutest outfits. Plus the quote "When the apocalypse comes, beep me".
    4./ Nightmares
    5./ Witch
    6./ The Harvest
    7./ Out of Sight, Out of Mind
    A little off topic, but you know that Sporcle game? The one where you have to name all the episodes of Buffy in 20 minutes? Well I can never get the name of this right. I sit there staring at the screen saying to myself "it is NOT see no evil, hear no evil, STOP typing that in" no matter how many time I play it. Clea is kick ass.
    8./ Angel
    9./ The Puppet Show
    10./ The Pack
    11./ I Robot, You Jane
    12. Teacher's Pet

    Haha, and I thought I could just sneak back in :p
    You've had a name change though? Who do I know you as!?

    PS. I attempted to quote this and absolutely failed.
    PPS. I can audibly hear the mods groaning and saying 'oh no, CAIT'S BACK!'
     
    Mr. Pole: I am me. I dont remember who I was before I wasnt me.

    I dont think you much sneak anywhere.

    Good to know somethings never change.

    Much is different. The mods are more silent but deadly now. When you hear them there's no problem, but when they dont say anything and just linger around, thats when you have to really be on the lookout. They are like farts that way.
     
    caitaintdead: And you STILL won't tell me who you are! I obviously like you though, you use an analogy of farts to describe mods.

    For me:

    1. Prophecy Girl
    2. Angel
    3. The Puppet Show
    4. Welcome to the Hellmouth
    5. The Harvest
    6. Nightmares
    7. Witch
    8. Out of Mind, Out of Sight
    9. Never Kill a Boy on The First Date
    10. The Pack
    11. Teacher's Pet
    12. I Robot, You Jane

    You may wonder why the Puppet Show is so up there. I love the canon it provides. The loneliness of the slayer and the demon hunter. It gives me a glimpse of this life the girl that fights darkness has.

    Am really with you on this one, its an episode which unfairly falls under the redar. I love it! One that just bares repeat viewings.

    I like that episode too, one that kind of gives you an idea about the themes to be explored later in the show.

    Interested to know why Nightmares is your bottom choice below IRYJ? And 7th pretty high for Teacher's Pet?

    There both really petty reasons lol

    I love the concept of Nightmares but it's the episode I enjoy the least because of the clown scenes. I'm terrified of clowns.

    And I like Teachers Pet because of the appearance of Angel. It seems even after all these years the Bangel in me is still strong lol you might notice that the top part of the list all have Angel appearing in them :)
