Best Buffy the Vampire Slayer Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Once More With Feeling

I love this episode it's my favorite!

saw it 3 times in a row and "let me rest in peace" by James Masterns is in my YouTube list

This started me watching Buffy again after years of not watching. Brilliant! - tarot_contralto

Never watched it but I have heard of the series. Even though I never watched the series or episode, this is good yet decent. - DynastiNoble

2 Hush

No other villain in the show's history rivals the creepiness factor that The Gentlemen bring. Smart, funny, and scary... This episode had all the ingredients to become a classic for any Buffy fan and casual viewer.

Hush is an icredibly clever and inspiring episode, creepy and funny in the same time. A great masterpiece! It will scare you to hell, but these unforgettable 45 minutes will stay with you forever.

3 The Body

I love Hush and The Gift, but this episode was worlds apart from anything I'd ever seen. Phenomenal acting, writing and camera work all throughout.

The most heartfelt and relatable 40 minutes you'll ever see. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Emma Caulfield are both perfect in this episode.

Once, More With Feeling and Hush are two incredible and groundbreaking episodes. Truly some of television's finest hours. Though, The Body holds a special place in my heart. One of the most realistic protrayels of how someone deals with a loved one's death. Superbly acted, written, and directed. Not to mention totally different vibe from other Buffy episodes. Not fastpaced and no music.

This one makes me sad but one of my favorites
