Ruminations on TV Shows, Comics, And Music
I'm the midst of coming up with a Stargate In Significantly Fewer Seasons. But, much like when I did Star Trek In Significantly Fewer Seasons, my unfamiliarity with the series makes creating anedited season challenging, as I have to watch every episode before I can figure out a good bar for quality. I wished there was a series that I was more of an expert in, whose entire run I had seen at least two or three times alr...Buffy!
There are 254 episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel. I have whittled it down to the 80 best. Buffy and Angel seasons each tended to be defined by a Big Bad, where each season had one main enemy. I've ditched that, and tried to end each season on the series' biggest emotional beats.
In the first two seasons, we witnessed every major character be both hero and villain. We saw a slayer and a vampire fall in love, we saw a couple of slayers die, we saw some fan favorite vampires staked, we saw one come back to life and move to LA! What else is there to be done? It's time to get Tropey and Weird.
