Buffy is fantastic. Joss Whedons and the other writers dialogues are ingenious. One of the funniest lines ever was when Willow was caught drawing a witches symbol when that symbol had been used for human sacrafice recently and she said, "Its a doodle! I do doodle. You too. You do doodle too".
On a more serious note, i love Buffy. They have dealt with so many storylines in a very sensible and real way, LGB issues, death, drugs, among some.
One of the best episodes, and saddest, was where Buffys mother died of a brain hemorage. There was no music played in the whole episode. Music would have relieved the tension, the fear, but Whedon wanted his audience to feel the realness of it.
Anyways I could harp on for hours and hours about Buffy. I just love it.
100% agree with you, Paul.
The dialogue was hilarious at times. And lets not forget the slow-motion fight scene between Xander and Harmony.
The episode where [Spoilers]Buffy's mom died[/spoilers] is called The Body, and I agree that it is one of the best written episodes. The acting was also phenomenal. Anya (Emma Caulfield) made me cry with her touching scene. And it also contained a very nice scene between Tara and Buffy.
And as well as The Body, lets not forget the singing episode.
Tara (Amber Benson), Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) and Spike (James Marsters) truly did an excellent job there. And of course Joss did a terrific job writing it. The only flaw with it was the lazy writing at the end, where Xander admits to summoning Sweet.
I mean, people see the title, and immediately think that it is some crappy show about a girl fighting vampires...but it is so much more than that.
