Bet you didn’t think I could be any bigger of an uber nerd after all my nerd things posts (apple, pez, and gear)? Well think again.
Here’s my Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVD collection. All 7 seasons of it.
Please don’t calculate the cost. It hurts me to to “quantify” my Buffy obsession. Rather, I like to think of Buffy as an “essential” cost of living, like cupcakes, consumer electronics and Visine during allergy season (errrggg!). Can’t put a price tag on cupcakes, can you? Well, Cupcakes can. $13.50 for 6 flippin’ cupcakes. Now that hurts me.
Back to Buffy, the Slayer of the Vampires. Since meeting Carrie (also uber Buffy fan), I have agonized over choosing my favourite Buffy episodes. Well, maybe “agonized” is a little too dramatic, “delegated some thought towards in concentrated bursts” is more accurate. You see, after watching Buffy more than once (try, at least 10 times) my favourite characters, moments, and episodes tend to change depending on my mood, attitude and level of attentiveness while watching the Buffster. So, it’s difficult for me to separate my temporary “feelings” from my favourite Buffy moments. But, I’ll try. Keep on truckin’ like the trooper that I am.
Lisa’s Favourite Buffy Episodes:
- The Body (Season 5)
- Smashed — Wrecked — Gone (as a trilogy, Season 6)
- Something Blue (Season 4)
- Surprise (Season 2)
- Hush (Season 4)
- The Gift (Season 5)
- Tabula Rasa (Season 6)
- Angel (Season 1)
- New Moon Rising (Season 4)
- Doppelgangland (Season 3)
- School Hard (Season 2)
- Restless (Season 4)
- Storyteller (Season 7)
- Band Candy (Season 3)
Not quite the stereotypical favourites, are they? Except “Hush” and “The Body”. Every Buffy fan has to pick these two Whedon favs, or we wouldn’t be uber fans, now would we?
