Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a cultural phenomenon and a widely beloved TV show. It's a series full of some truly breathtaking and in some cases revolutionary episodes of television. Sure, there have been some duds, but for every "Doublemeat Palace", "First Date" and "Go Fish" there's a "Passion", a "Hush" and a "Fool for Love." The duds are often fun, that can't be denied, but they're not Buffy at its best.
But what about the episodes that rarely enter the conversation of Buffy greats? This list will focus on those lost gems, from the far too hated to the tragically overlooked. Be them episodes which added much needed layers to some of our favourite characters and the overarching story, or episodes overshadowed by the events and arcs that surrounded it, every season will have a chance (or two) to shine.
Because after 144 episodes, and being off air for sixteen years, means rather inevitably that some episodes have been forgotten or dismissed to fast. And once you've read the list, why not re-visit the episodes featured? Major spoiler ahead, but enjoy.
