"We can do this the hard way, or... Actually, there's just the hard way." "I worship Beelzebub. I do his biddings. Do you see any goats around? No, because I sacrificed them... Prince of Night, I summon you. Come fill me with your black, naughty evil!" "The earth is most definitely doomed." "When it's dark and I'm all alone and I'm scared or freaked out... I always think, 'What would Buffy do?' You're my hero." "Willow's a demon?!" Given the renewed interest and the fact that it recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, I'm finally going to host an episode rate for this amazing show. Looking at other episode rates on the internet, I can't find a single one that's done it justice the way you guys could- the way some of you have spoken about characters and individual episodes has really helped me remember what an iconic, well-written show it truly was. So here's how it's going to roll: You all have until Saturday, 29th April to submit your nominations for the top 25 episodes of all time - these are personal favourites, guys, not ones that critics loved, or ones that had the highest viewing figures. From these nominations, I'll create a rate of the top 40 episodes, based on the 40 most popular, i.e. how many times they were nominated. You'll then have a further 4 weeks to give each of the 40 episodes a score out of 10, with your personal favourite Buffy episode getting an 11. Commentary is of course welcome, as I'll be submitting plenty of it myself. For two-parters like Becoming, Surprise and Innocence, Graduation Day etc, you will need to be decisive and choose individual episodes. A huge thanks to @DJHazey for his ideas! Looking forward to your nominations, guys- you've got just over 3 weeks.
