Mines would have to be Nightmares and Prophecy Girl. Prophecy Girl for obvious reasons. Nightmares because of it's difference and it's the funniest of them all. All except for Buffy's nightmare involving her dad being a jerk, and her other one about dying alive by the hands of The Master.

  • Witch - Another underrated gem. It's such a perfect example of this season, of the campiness, the clever language, it has a great plot twist, and is just funny.
  • The Puppet Show - I will never apologize for this being my favorite of the season, it's basically perfect :)
I recently did a poll on Reddit and, funnily enough, Witch won by a landslide for the first six episodes. I didn't see that coming, honestly.

The Pack and The Puppet Show were the most intelligently written and they are ones I would rewatch any time.

Prophecy Girl largely for that Buffy/Giles/Angel scene in the library.
Witch because it's the first cold open I loved and the twist and the ending

VERY closely behind (because I was in many minds) The Puppet Show and Nightmares
Guilty secret - IRYJ, but ONLY the Giles+Jenny bits lol

Probably Prophecy Girl and The Harvest - and this is going by my poor memory. I remember though that watching the first two episodes of Buffy made me excited for what's to come (in spite of having known of season 1's reputation beforehand), and I felt like both "Welcome to the Hellmouth" and "The Harvest" set up that introduction to the Buffyverse nicely.

Prophesy Girl for obvious reasons. 🤣

I loved the introduction of The Master. I wish that we've seen more of him.

Prophecy Girls is more like the second season and less like the first season. I want to omit it while answering this. (Because, otherwise, I would have to choose it and it wouldn't be fair to other episodes 😇)
Nightmares is the first Buffy episode where we see an altered reality. I like how the episode feels.
Witch and The Puppet Show are both fun to watch. I guess, "Macho Man" is the tiebreaker. 😄

Witch and Nightmares, it is, then.

I picked Angel and Prophecy Girl. I think they are the two episodes of season one that feel the most like a Buffy episode and really set up what the show will become. I honestly enjoy season 1, but I wouldn't say the episodes are top tier Buffy except for these two. Not surprised no body picked I Robot, You Jane. lol
