Being a die hard fan of the hit television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and my favorite actress is Sarah Michelle Gellar, I have come up with a list of the top twelve best episodes of the show.

Buffy ran on television from 1997 until 2003. Take a look at my choices for yourself!

12. Once More With Feeling

This episode was epic! It was different and unique in its own way. There are many episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that have moved me but this one had a musical essence to it which makes it stand out from the rest of the episodes.

11. Touched

The scene where Spike encourages Buffy and expresses his true feelings for her was brought to screen amazingly. That scene was so special that it made me weep! The way Spike confronts the gang and makes them realize the importance of the “Slayer” was extraordinary! After all, Buffy and Spike are the best couple. Sorry Angel!

10. Potential

Buffy teaches the potential slayers how to deal with vampires while on the other hand, the fate of a potential slayer is determined. The way an ordinary girl feels that she is capable of becoming the slayer was stunningly portrayed! In addition, there were many chills and thrills delivered in this episode. Undoubtedly, a fantastic conception!

9. The Witch

Can season 1 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer be any better? “The Witch” was one of the most intriguing episodes of the season. The cliffhanger in the end leaves you begging for more! The episode was wonderfully directed and the acting was incredible, as always!

8. Welcome To The Hellmouth

best-buffy-episodes-welcome-to-helmouth

The pilot episodes are supposed to be exciting but “Welcome to the Hellmouth” was an exception when compared to every other television show. It was a blend of many genres including horror, drama, thriller and comedy. The first scene of the episode was the winner!

7. The Harvest

I remember first watching this episode when I was six years old back in California. It was thrilling and packed with suspense. Not to forget the messed up faces of those vampires! Being an avid fan of Buffy, it was absolutely astounding to witness the capabilities of all the demons and their leader, “The Master.”

6. The Wish

What is better than having all the characters in one episode, including Cordelia Chase? Nothing is! “The Wish” was unbelievably horrifying in its demeanor. It was wonderfully written and directed.

5. Prophecy Girl

“Giles, I’m 16 years old… I don’t want to die.”

This dialogue alone made me cry. The episode was touching but the motivation Buffy gets from herself in the end makes “Prophecy Girl” worthy of the top five!

4. Chosen

best-buffy-episodes-chosen

Undoubtedly, the best season finale I’ve seen in the entire series because it was very different. The background music and the way Buffy confronts “The First” after it knocks her down makes “Chosen” an epic series finale! Also, the last word that comes out of Buffy’s mouth is “Spike” which left me speechless in the end.

3. The Body

best-buffy-episodes-body

“The Body” was perhaps the saddest episode in the show’s history. Undoubtedly, it was wonderfully directed and produced. Joss Whedon is a genius when it comes to producing such heartbreaking episodes. He made “The Body” seem so special that it touched not only my heart, but millions of others! Words cannot express what this episode means to me.

2. Hush

best-buffy-episodes-gentlemen

This is what I call innovation. “Hush” was one of the scariest episodes I’ve ever seen! The music, makeup and of course, the setting were the key aspects that made this episode seem more interesting. It deserves this spot!

1. The Gift

best-buffy-episodes-gift

“I just wish that… I just wish my mom was here.”

Whenever I see this episode over and over again, it always makes me cry. “The Gift” itself makes you feel as if you’re in the shoes of Buffy Summers. The scene where Buffy jumps off the building to save the world and her sister, Dawn, left me speechless in the end! Words are not enough to describe what this episode means to me. It has the “family” element to it as well. Undoubtedly, the music was the best composition I’ve listened to in the entire show. A perfect song for the ending scene!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer was more than just a television show. It was a series that connected and built a strong relationship with its audience. The show dealt with a number of social and personal issues that we as humans face everyday. Buffy is the only show I have come across that covers every aspect required in a television show.

A new Fifty Shades Darker trailer was released on Wednesday and ups the sexy for the sequel.

Ana and Christian are getting back together in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, but the former has a couple of new rules: No secrets, way less BDSM. Christian agrees, but new problems come to light: Is someone from the millionaire’s past haunting him?

Dakota Johnson continues to bring a fun vibe to Ana Steele, playing the awkward lines with self awareness better than Kristen Stewart ever did as Bella in Twilight. “Have dinner with me,” Christian begs. “Okay fine, I will have dinner with you, because I’m… hungry,” Ana replies. The line could come off corny if executed poorly, but Dakota has a strong hold on playing this character for fun.

Tickets for Fifty Shades Darker are now on sale. Check out a new poster for the movie below:

The Fifty Shades Darker synopsis reads, “When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.”

The movie hits theaters this Valentine’s Day. It stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Victor Rasuk, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger and Marcia Gay Harden, and is directed by James Foley.

It’s looking like Nick Robinson will go from battling dinosaurs to battling the process of coming out.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is an excellent coming of age/coming out LGBT YA novel which we’ve raved about here on Hypable before. Nick Robinson is definitely an actor we can picture in the role, so we can’t wait to see him play the adorable character.

The film is being produced by Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment, who’s responsible for The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers.

What do think of Nick Robinson as Simon?

If you haven’t read it yet, we highly recommend that you do. The book was first published last year:

After you read it, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Becky Albertalli. Simon was her first novel!

Netflix has unveiled a new Series of Unfortunate Events trailer, showing off Neil Patrick Harris’ excellent portrayal of the evil, wacky, will-stop-at-nothing-to-get-that-money Count Olaf.

Neil Patrick Harris’ ability to convincingly become any person — whether male or female, young or old, ugly or beautiful — becomes abundantly clear in the latest ASOUE trailer. While some of us may’ve been a little skeptical of his casting initially, it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role after seeing previews like this.

The trailer begins with narrator Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) warning that the new Netflix show is no delightful watch. Then the focus turns to Olaf and his mission to steal the children’s fortune, left to them by their parents after their untimely deaths:

The Unfortunate Events trailer also presents new looks at colorful characters including Uncle Monty (Aasif Mandvi, below), Aunt Josephine (Alfre Woodard, below), and Justice Strauss (Joan Cusack).

A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres all eight episodes of its first season on January 13, 2017.

“Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.”

Another trailer was released two weeks ago — you can watch it here.

Is ‘Unfortunate Events’ looking as good as you hoped?

Harris previously confirmed that each book will be adapted into two episodes of the show. The first season of ASOUE covers the first four books, so presumably season 2 will roughly cover another four books. There are a total of 13 books in Lemony Snicket’s series.
