Day 05: Favorite Episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I feel a little weird choosing The Body for this because so many of the things that make Buffy Buffy are so strikingly absent from this episode. But that’s also one of the things that makes it stand out in my mind.
I went through the entire series of Buffy pretty quickly on Netflix, and I’m pretty sure The Body was the only time I watched only one episode in a single day. Usually if I was sitting down to watch some Buffy I was gonna do at least two or three. But this was the only episode that I watched on its own. I knew I needed to take a break after this one, because I was still trying to absorb it all. If I’d watched the next episode right away I wouldn’t have been able to focus on it. That’s why, even though Hush or Once More With Feeling (probably the two biggest contenders for this category) are more Buffy-esque favorite Buffy episodes, I’m choosing The Body.
Also: Innocence, Passion, Becoming, Doppelgangland, Graduation Day, Hush, Restless, The Gift, Once More With Feeling, Conversations With Dead People, Chosen
^And that’s narrowing down the list a lot.
