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 One introduced us to the good guys, showed us how many of them could or did become bad guys, some of them becoming good again. We begin this season with "Becoming", which shows us the potential for change, which is one of the major themes for the whole series.
