Thanks to the success of The Avengers, Joss Whedon is suddenly a hot commodity and Logo is capitalizing on it. On Saturday, May 19, the network will air a marathon of Joss Whedon's favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes starting at 10am.

As if we needed further proof that Whedon was spectacular taste, his list is virtually perfect. If you wrote down your own list of your 10 favorite Buffy episodes, odds are at least 7 or 8 of them are on Whedon's list.


"Propjecy Girl" - The season 1 finale where Buffy dies and defeats the Master

"Innocence" - The first appearance of Angelus after Buffy sleeps with Angel for the first time

"Becoming, Part 2" - The season 2 finale where Buffy kills Angel

"The Wish" - The alternate universe episode where Buffy never came to Sunnydale and Willow is a "kinda gay" vampire

"Doppelgangland" - The sequel to "The Wish" where Vamp Willow comes to the real world

"Hush" - The Emmy-nominated silent episode with the Gentlemen

"Restless" - The dream-filled season 4 finale

"The Body" - The episode where Buffy's mom is dead (and, in my personal opinion, the single greatest episode of television ever made)

"Once More, With Feeling" - The musical episode

"Conversations with Dead People" - The season 7 episode where everyone is visited by ghosts of their past

I'm not about to argue with the inclusion of any of those episodes (well, OK, I didn't really like any season 1 episodes, but that's beside the point).


"Lie to Me" - Most for the brilliant final speech by Giles about how good always wins

"The Zeppo" - A wacky day in the life of Xander is always fun

"Fear, Itself" - Mostly for Anya wearing a bunny costume

"Who Are You?" - The episode where Buffy and Faith switched bodies

"Superstar" - Because Jonathan is amazing

"Intervention"  - For the Buffybot

"Life Serial" - The introduction of the Nerds of Doom

"Doublemeat Palace" - "It's a process. They do it to the meat."

"Storyteller" - Simply because Andrew is my favorite character ever

"Chosen" - The series finale was everything we possibly could've wanted

So what's your favorite Buffy episode of all-time, and which ones aren't on either of these lists?
