TV Meme, Day 6

Your favourite episode from your favourite show.

Okay, if I say that BtVS is my favourite show, then I am faced with the decision about which is my favourite episode. I think that if I had to tell someone to watch one episode that would explain why I think this is such a great show, I would say "The Body." It's not easy to watch, but, oh, it's so amazing and brilliant. I don't think I have seen anything that deals with death so well. Anya's speech - heartbreaking. I also like "Once More With Feeling," of course, especially because of Buffy and Spike's clinch at the end, but I think "The Body" is the best thing ever made for television.

Here are all the questions

I like the first fifteen minutes of "The Body," but the rest . . . not so much. That first fifteen minutes, though, is terrific.

I think that the best episode, as perceived by a fan of the show, is not necessarily the best to introduce someone who hasn't seen it before.

Though I remember being very moved by The Body, not least because my own mother died when I was not much older than Buffy, I can't actually remember anything more about it (possibly because I found it too upsetting to watch multiple times?) and my vote for best episode to introduce new people would be Hush.

Yes, although I wasn't meaning to introduce a new viewer; what I said was to show someone in order to explain why I thought it was such a great show. And the question was your favourite episode. Maybe we're back to "favourite or 'best'"? "The Body" is, I think, the best episode - maybe others are more entertaining.
