This great gem of a TV show is truly watchable, if your into Fantasy, drama, Suspense, This is a tale about the chosen one a girl who becomes a mythological figure who fight vampires and other nasties evil trows at the world. In this case Buffy Summers is the chosen one, The Show Tackles all the things the supernatural trows at her, but also real life issues like addiction, same sex relationships and relationships in general. With an great cast and Josh Weddon behind the scenes, this show was destined to become a pop culture show. The first 3 Seasons show Buffy and her gang of friends named the Scoobies, going through the motions of groin up and having relationships, With first three seasons high on the mark, The focus shifted in season 4 to young adult and college, whilst this season had some real good things going for itself, i found it the lesser of all seasons. Season 5 however manages the catch up paste and the show again scores high marks in its genre territory. Also to accompany this great peace of tv shows is a great ensemble of music featured from various alternative artist performing in the Bronze, A Cafe/club scene Buffy and friends like to hang out at. The Shows background Music is scored bye "Christopher Beck", some people might know him from scoring the soundtracks for "Babylon 5". This Show is a must see for anyone who likes this Genre. I don't think your gonna be disappointing :-)

The best show I have EVER seen. The wit is phenomenal. If you love this watch Firefly. You're welcome.

Today 20 years ago the world changed, there was one of the first supernatural series that was amazing, and not afraid to be different. We saw them grow up and have normal problems like most teenagers have, well not the vampire problems ofc. Best show ever in my mind and now that it's 20 years old time for a serious rewatch! <3

Honestly this is my favourite TV show ever. I've watched it so many times from the start and every time I get grabbed and can't stop watching

avatar

one of my favs tbh

Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before, unafraid to reference or not reference, put it in a blender, shit on it, vomit on it, eat it, give birth to it. BEST TV SHOW EVER MADE. ALSO: ONCE MORE WITH FEELINGS IS THE BEST EPISODE EVER AIRED, YOU CAN'T CHANGE MY MIND!

Watched this back in the late 90’s with my son. We loved it. Probably didn’t see all the episodes due to old fashioned TV lol. My son is rewatching it, so I’m going to too, for nostalgia. Hopefully, I will enjoy it as much as I did all those years ago :)

I tried watching this. Completed season 1. Watched till season 2 episode 2. I am still not invested in the show. I might continue watching this later as fans insist that it gets better after mid season 2. Edit: Resumed after few months.I am totally hooked.

One of THE BEST tv shows ever!!! Loved it the first time, I'm re-watching it now and I'll definitely re-watch it again some day!!!

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
