Although this season only has 12 episodes and no budget, it is still way better than seasons 4 through 7.

1. Prophecy Girl: I love this episode. Goodbye season 1, hello season 2.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Let's gather all the homeless people in LA and put vampire make-up on them :)"

2. Welcome to the Hellmouth/The Harvest: How it all began. Great character introductions, great atmosphere, great writing, simply great. It's a shame the show was seldom great after the 3rd season.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Let's kill off one of the main characters and pretend then he never existed :)"

3. The Pack: Great stand-alone episode. Remember when Xander was interesting before the writers ran out of material for him after season 3?
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Scrap the Werewolf episode. We'll just have a bunch of students possessed by Hyenas :)"

4. Angel: The episode that set up season 2. Although I wish we got more Darla this season.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "No more new vampires until the finale. We will just call the show "Buffy" from now on :)"

5. Nightmares: Great stand-alone episode. One of the most imaginative and unique episodes of the whole series.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Giles' nightmares will be he can't read and he gets lost in the library :)"

6. Witch: Fun stand-alone episode. Although I wish we saw more Buffy as a cheerleader.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "No fighting scenes. Buffy is now a detective show :)"

7. The Puppet Show: Enter Snyder. Above average stand-alone episode but the ending is pretty epic.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Puppets, camera POV work, secondary characters who can't act, you know the usual... :)"

8. Never Kill A Boy on the First Date: Weak vampire episode but we get more Angel and more of the Master. Side note, why are grown men still in High School?
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Let's a hire a kid to be the baddie and pay him with lollypops :)"

9. Teachers Pet: Xander's dream in the intro is hilarious and by far the best part.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Kill the lights and we will use a giant sock pocket as the demon :)"

10. Out of Mind, Out of Sight: The episode picks up steam when Cordy becomes someone we start to identify with. But being another Monster of the week episode, in a season with essentially just Monster of the week episodes, this one just wasn't for me.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Let's do an episode with an invisible foe. No makeup, no special effects. We will do the demons next season provided we have some more money :)"

11. I Robot, You Jane: My problem with this episode is not its theme but its lack of energy. Overall it's pretty snoozeworthy but the scenes with Jenny are still pretty cool.
- "Hi Joss. How do we save money this week?"
- "Easy, we replace the demon with text messages :)"
