May Recommendations

recommendation
It’s time for another instalment of me giving quick recommendations from assorted pop culture categories of things I’m currently into. These things may or may not be current, but are things that I’m currently enjoying (or have recently enjoyed) that I think you (the reader) might enjoy as well. Provided that you enjoy things that are awesome.

In the past, I’d write reviews of things that I wanted to recommend, but I don’t have as much time to write those reviews as I used to, so instead of deciding how good something is, or weighing pros and cons, and all those things a responsible reviewer does, I’m just gonna come right out and say “I like these things. They are worthwhile”, which is basically what anyone is looking for when reading a review anyway. And because blogging can (and should) be a two-way street, please feel free to leave a comment with any recommendations you’d think I’d be into.

Top 25 Episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The Top Five.

This is it, the end of the list. If you were saving your comments for the list in full, speak now. I don’t really mind if few people were reading this, it was fun to put together either way. If you wanna see all the screen caps I made, including episodes that didn’t make the cut, you can see them HERE. If you want them for yourself, feel free to take them. It’s not like I own the copyright. Just don’t hotlink.

Top 25 Episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Numbers 10-6.

Here it is, the start of the top ten. A quick note to be made here is that I didn’t miss number 8. Number 7, “Graduation Day” is a two-part episode, and thus is a tie. It is both number 7 and 8 on the list, or, 7a and b. If I were only doing a Top Ten, then I’d probably just rank it as one episode, but since this is a Top 25, I figured that they should take their own spots on the list as a tie. To see what ranked 15-11, click HERE.

Top 25 Episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Numbers 20-16.

Time to continue with the Big List. The reason why I’m breaking it down into 5 groups of 5 is that I worry that no one would read the whole thing if I posted it at once. Most would start off reading it, then they’d scroll down, maybe read an episode they love, then scroll some more. Of course, that could still be happening, but breaking it up increases the possibility that some people might read the whole deal. To read what ranked 25 through 21, click HERE.

Top 25 Episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Numbers 25-21.

One of my favourite reads this summer has been Noel Murray’s posts about the first two seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for The Onion’s AV Club. Murray is a first time viewer of the show, and reading him discover the brilliance of one of my all-time favourite shows has been a fun way of re-living the series, so if you haven’t already, I highly recommend you check out his posts (which finished up today, to be continued with season three some time around December).

Inspired by this trip down memory lane, I thought I’d re-post my Top 25 Episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer list that I originally wrote way back in 2005. While an older piece of writing (and thus possibly not as strong as my current writing), it’s still one of my favourite blog posts ever, both in terms of how much fun it was to put together and pride in how in turned out. Read on past the jump to find out the first five episodes to make the list, along with some of my reasoning at the time for the post. Numbers 20-1 will follow shortly (or, depending on when you’re reading this, have already been posted).
