    Having watched it again yesterday I do think that Prophecy Girl maybe the best episode. It may look weaker in a better season, but certainly is a stand out here and great finale. But personally I do have a loving for The Puppet Show so am sticking with that for now.

    I'm going to say 'Prophecy Girl' just because it sets up a lot of what the show will become and what it can do. The great heartbreaking scene in the library where Buffy says she's 16 and doesn't want to die. Plus coming back to life and killing the Master. Although the Master's death was a little anti-climactic but still "You have fruit punch mouth" so good. I do like and enjoy season 1 a lot, but this episode is just much better.

    i think my favorite episode ever and of season 1 of buffy is the first one. I think it is my favorite because i get to see Buffy as who she truly was or wanted to be without the slayer part even if those were brief moments before all the bad stuff started. And all that bad lasted for 7years lol...wait... sad :(

    Like others have said, Season One is excellent for stand alone episodes. It reminds me of those horror TV shoes from the 80's, a good collection of low budget horror stories.

    I'm torn between "The Puppet Show" & "Prophecy Girl" as to which is my favorite though. For me, "The Puppet Show" showcases the more lighthearted nature of the show very well. Where as "Prophecy Girl" is fantastically well done & concludes S1's story very well, while setting up future plot elements.

    Due to the importance of PG though, that would likely JUST edge out TPS, if I was really forced to choose.

    It's between ''Welcome to Hellmouth'', ''Nightmares'' and ''Prophecy Girl''. I cannot decide.

    'Prophecy Girl' will always be the strongest and my favorite of season 1. It's the first all-Joss episode too, so of course it was going to be good. I so feel for Buffy in the scene with her, Giles and Angel, where she learns of the prophecy. "I'm 16, I don't want to die", just amazing stuff.

    'Angel' and 'Nightmares' are up there too, though.

    Wow. Reading these just brings me back to my room at 12 years old watching the 2 hour premier and thinking this was going to be a really cool show. Never could I have imagined that at 30 I would still feel a fondness for this show. My favorite is probably the Puppet Show. The end cracks me up every single time. The Witch, Out of Sight, Out of Mind and Prophecy Girl are so close behind. It is hard to pick just one!

    Prophecy Girl is one of my favourite Buffy episodes. I love the scene where she finds out she's going to die. It really hit home with me, it was so honest.

    I loved Nightmares as it provided some real character development and it was quite a humorous episode, in other words seeing Xander in his underwear. I also really enjoyed 'Prophecy Girl' as Buffy's speech and her emotional state as she learnt about her 'fate' was very moving. She also had a really nice dress as the Master also pointed out! My Mum likes 'Angel' mainly because she was not expecting Angel to get all Vampy on her! It was also a really nice episode for his character :)

    "Prophecy Girl" hands down. Though I also love the first 2 episodes. Darla's acting is comical.

    Prophecy Girl! After rewatching the first season with someone who has never seen it before, I am pleasantly surprised by how awesome the whole season actually is... No wonder I was so obsessed when I first saw it!

    The Puppet Show is truly underrated... So hilarious! But I have to go with Prophecy Girl, just because it really kind of exemplified the emotional strain that weighs on Buffy in her role as the slayer... Also sets so much in motion for future seasons!

    My favorite episode has to be Angel, followed very closely by Prophecy Girl. Angel was the first episode that really drew me into the show besides Welcome To The Hellmouth/The Harvest so it's really special to me & it brings back so many memories. Everything about this episode is perfection. The chemistry between Buffy & Angel, Willow's awe of their relationship, Xander's jealousy because it's hilarious, Joyce's creepy scene where she's tricked by Darla, the fight scenes...love it.
