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.
Season Four gave us a deep dive into the Angel/Spike/Drusilla/Darla family of vampires. Season Five is dark and sad. So sad. So very, very sad. There's an episode from this season that is on almost every Saddest Episode Ever list by Media Studies Majors. Maybe stay away from this season if you've recently suffered a major loss in your life.
