We figured we’d give this its own post, mostly so you all could also rank with us in the comments.

I feel like I’m going to put this order up, wake up tomorrow and feel differently. Seasons are made up of so many moving parts, that ranking this way is difficult. I think I’m stalling now. OKAY. OKAY. Here we go:

  1. Season 5 – When season 5 took first place in my eyes, it surprised me.

K: We open at the cemetery. Buffy is fighting a vampire, as she’s known to do. She slays, and Giles judges, telling her that she should adopt a “plunge and move on” approach. I’ll take “Things you shouldn’t say to teenage girls when you’re a creepy old dude” for $200, Alex.

Lor: And it’s the Daily Double!

Despite the Giles creepiness, though, he has a legit point. Mid-vampire ass whooping, Buffy quips SO SO MUCH. During this fight? “We haven’t been properly introduced. I’m Buffy, and you’re history.”

Uuuugh.

Lor: I was never a cheerleader. I could attribute this to my two left feet, distaste for most group activities and propensity for alienating people, but the truth is that I never tried cheerleading because my mother deemed the skirts too short, and we all know short skirts are the devil.

K: I was never a cheerleader, because we don’t do that shit in Australia.

And also because of all the reasons Lor said. (Except for my mother thinking short skirts were the devil. She grew up in the 1960s and so was ALL about the short skirts…)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer S01 E02 – Or why you should carry an Exacto knife.

I feel like we should start this second post of Buffy recaps with a disclaimer. We will not be devoting an entire post to each episode. Because that would be CU-RAAAAZY, and I’m pretty sure both Lor and I would go insane after the 144 posts that would require.

At the end of “Welcome to the Hellmouth”, Buffy is trapped in a tomb with a huge, ugly vampire dude, and he’s about to bite her.

Which bring us to…

“The Harvest”

So apparently the huge, ugly vampire dude (whose name is Luke) has really terrible aim when it comes to necks. Or he was trying to bite her boobs? Either way, he ends up with a mouthful of the enormous crucifix necklace that Angel presented Buffy with in the last episode.
