Y'know now I think of it - all the robot type episodes I didn't really enjoy.

For me it was All the Way. Buffy at it's most 90210/dawsons creek/ oc/ any other predictable whiny teen drama you can think of. made me gag. only good moment was spikes line: "No, I'm a rebel. You're an idiot."

"Gorramit Mal... I've forgotten my line."

Easiest... question... ever:

"Bring on the Night"

Ubervamp torturing Spike by holding him underwater (WTF?)... Completely pointless Joyce scenes (why bring her back if there's nothing for her to do?)... The beginning of the lame "Is it Giles or is it the First?" plotline... Introduction of the Potentials... that one Potential (Annabelle?) running away for no apparent reason at all... Buffy's cheesy speech at the end... ugh.

"Reptile Boy" is pretty bad, too, but "Bring on the Night" is the gold-standard against which all other crappy episodes should be judged...

To quote Spike, circa S.4, "Doomed"....."Oh, COME ON!"

I can't believe no-one yet has mentioned "Beer Bad". Granted, leave it to Buffy to make sure that even its worst ep had some good moments. Still. "Beer Bad"=epitome of bad buffy eps. Some S.7 eps toed the line, but i know for sure that BB is the worst for me.

I'm babbling like a moonbrain.

I hate putting any ep. of BUFFY in this category, because let's face it, a 'D' or
'F' episode of BUFFY is still better than an 'A' episode of most other shows.

Still, here goes.

"I Robot, You Jane" springs to mind.

I'm going to add to this with the consideration of the worst episode in each season. (Doesn't mean they are necessarily bad, just y'know, there's always one that isn't quite up to the standard of the majority)

1 - I Robot, You Jane
2 - Ted
3 - Anne (But that's because the whole season is pure CLASS)
4 - Beer Bad
5 - I Was Made to Love You
6 - Double Meat Palace
7 - Selfless.

Anne? That was one of my top five for the season..
...the way Buffy threw that demon and his head hit the low wall..CLASSIC!!!
I agree with I Was Made To Love You, but Beer Bad cracked me up!!!

Anne wasn't bad by any means. I remember being a bit irritated by some of the visuals - which Is why I mentioned it, because in all honesty I can't fault a single epsiode of season three. I think it is a classic season.

Beer bad is just y'know not bad but unnecessarily 'stoopid'

It's a tough call all round really and I only ever judge Buffy by it's own very high standards.

Oh and while you mention it, what were the other top four then Big 'C' ? You can't leave a man hanging like that! Do tell!

I was frankly a little insulted by the idea that that robot was someone we should have felt bad for in IWMTLY. The pulled the strings, and I got a little teary, then I thought, "wait, it was a machine, not a complex AI or anything...what a dope I am!"

Season three has been called 'The Sergeant Pepper' season. It's definitely 100% pure magick. Other eps have equaled it's greatness, but no other season had a non-stop run of perfection like it IMO.


S4 came close...no it didn't Chrisisall

The entire 'Beer Bad' episode was worth it for that scene with Willow and Stinky Parker the Poophead when she asks him in that innocent, adorable way, "Just how gullable do you think I am?"

As soon as I saw this forum topic that episode came to mind...

'Beer Bad' and 'Doublemeat Palace' seem to be the worst rating episodes of Buffy (not specifically on this forum). While they aren't great, they're not so terrible. 'Beer Bad' had its moments.

Buffy vs. Dracula.

Beer Bad would probably get my vote, but at least at that point, the non-caveman characters were being normal and BtVS-like. BvD, however... blah. The dialogue made me cringe, and the characters made me cringe, and... blah. I've already enumerated my issues with season 5 elsewhere, but I think this episode pretty much epitomizes everything that was wrong with the 21 episodes to come (with the exceptions which, again, I've noted elsewhere).

That's the thing about Buffy (and Angel and probably Firefly if it had gone on), even in the bad episodes there is something to like as people have stated.

Anne is one of my favourites. Love the bit where she looks up and says "I'm Buffy, and you are?"

Ted was great up until you found he was a robot. I really thought she'd killed a human and they were going to explore that. Especially as it was John Ritter who I remember play nice guys.
Oddly enough I like I Was Made To Love You, although for a start I thought April was a really bad actress until I realized what she was!!

Bad Eggs was terrible but wasn't there some kind of great joke at the end?? Can't remember.

Beer Bad had the Willow/Parker confrontation.

I'm not keen on the one where Riley returns, but again it has the trading stories bit where Buffy asks if he died. He says no and she says that she wins.

I think that my worst would have to be the one where Buffy and Riley have all the sex and the house is haunted or something. The house that just happens to reside over the Initiative. Yeah right.

The finale was amazing!!! I loved ANGEL's ending too, though I'm glad there will definitely be a season 6 (in comic form-) so we can finally find out what happened to everyone.

Curious the most about Gunn, and if the original plans for him in the tv movies that didn't happen will be followed through with in the comics.

If you haven't heard or didn't know, this was the original plan for Gunn in the tv movies:

Select to view spoiler:


He would've been turned into a vampire and become a villain.

Hard to pick...
Doublemeat Palace certainly rates up (down?) there...

As to ones other people have mentioned -
Beer Bad & The Zeppo had so many funny moments, how can you hate them?

I know where you are coming from, but, for me, the finale is way too epic. it needs to be subtle. And i am not glad that they are doing a comic because i think what happens to the characters is clear. Its about the way you look at it. The whole point about the Angel finale is that what happens, how or when doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is that they fought, not who won. Baring in mind that the last episode of Angel is Called "Not Fade Away". To be honest, though i think that they all die.

************************************************
Illyria: You're fading. I give you minutes at best.
Gunn: Then let's make 'em memorable.
