My Top 50 Buffy Episodes Part 8

Okay so, we're nearing the Top 10 now. Only two more blogs to go for this one.

11: The Wish (Season 3, Episode 9)

Alernative reality episodes are never going to go out of style and I always enjoy them immensely, especially this one. A Sunnydale without Buffy certainly became a rather bleaker place to live and of course, there's Xander and Willow as vampires. Gotta love that.

12: This Year's Girl (Season 4, Episode 15)

Another cliche episode is to do body swapping and when Faith realised that the cops weren't far behind, she had no problem with snatching Buffy's body. One of the wittiest episodes of the series and the Buffy/Faith scenes are bloody brilliant as always.

13: Becoming Part 1 (Season 2, Episode 21)

You probably would expect this episode to be higher (don't worry, Part 2 is) but at least it's inmy Top 20. Kendra's death was well executed but this episode is better when viewed with it's second part but it does make for an incredible penultimate episode.

14: Graduation Day Part 1 (Season 3, Episode 21)

I loved this part marginally more than the second. Build up is always important and this one set things up nicely. Again, a certain fight scene with Buffy and Faith was a highlight in this episode as was Angel and Buffy beginning to seperate.

15: Graduation Day Part 2 (Season 3, Episode 22)

Blowing up your high school - childhood dream or act of sociopathic behaviour. Let's not ask the blonde girl who goaded a snake like Mayor to his final resting place. This was a sensational way of ending the high school era of the series. And a last appearance for Cordy on this show. Good job she turned out to be amazing on Angel then.

All terrific episodes and some of my favourite of the show. Lots of two parters there and Buffy did those so well.

The two parters on this show never failed to brilliant. Onto the Top 10 on Sunday.
