Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of TV's most iconic and beloved shows, and being finished and off air for sixteen years hasn't lessened its appeal or wounded its impact. Buffy Summers is one of the world's greatest and most recognisable fictional characters, and villains such as Angelus, Glory and the Gentlemen remain as scary and nightmare inducing as they were when they first hit our screens.
All the seasons have their weak spots, be it poor graphics, questionable character additions (sorry, not sorry, Kennedy) or appalling bad guys, but they are all monumental and incredibly good fun. Each season is full of wit and wisdom, and messages of friendships and strength.
Sure, Season One may look slightly old and tacky now, but that doesn't mean it's any less effective as it was in the 90s. And Season Six may be bleak and dark, but that doesn't mean it's all doom and gloom. From characters to great dialogue, from relationships to teen melodrama, all seven seasons have something important to give.
In the following list, enjoy as we rank the seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Some major spoilers follow.
