Buffy The Vampire Slayer: 15 Iconic Moments That Defined the Series

Buffy The Vampire Slayer is the reason I love TV and is to this day what I consider to be the greatest all round TV show ever created. It has been roughly 15 years since Buffy first hit our TV screens, and though some truly great shows have come between then and now, none have quite had the impact on me like this one did and still continues to do to this day. Because of this, I have decided to create this list of what I consider to be Buffy's 15 most iconic moments from all of it's seven seasons (not including the continuation of the series in the comics... as much as I love them. See my article Buffy The Vampire Slayer Comics: 5 Reasons to Love and 5 Reasons to Hate Them). Initially I was considering ranking the all time best moments, but I love Buffy like no other piece of fiction and it seemed silly to rank individual moments when the series works so perfectly as a whole. Instead, my list will be chronological, spanning and identifying the most important and iconic moments throughout the show in the life of Ms. Buffy Summers. Because there were 144 of mostly great episodes, it will be impossible to include every single wonderful moment on the show, but I will do my best to credit the most important 15 that really defined the television series, and make this show, to this day, feature on most television critics top 10 lists.

I am a recent Screenwriting for Film and Television graduate from the UK. I am an unashamed geek who loves everything Marvel, and anything Joss Whedon has ever touched (except for maybe Alien Resurrection and Titan A.E). My current favorite TV shows are Breaking Bad, Family Guy, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, American Horror Story, Homeland and Glee. I look forward to debating things with all of you in the future.
