"Buffy The Vampire Slayer" fans riding high on Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" success are getting a special treat. Starting at 10 a.m. ET on Sat., May 19, Logo will air Whedon's Top 10 "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" episodes. And it turns out a lot of his favorites are fan-favorites too!
Whedon's Top 10 includes: "Innocence," "Once More With Feeling," "Hush," "The Body," "Doppelgangland," "The Wish," "Becoming Part II," "Restless," "Conversations with Dead People" and "Prophecy Girl." See? All your favorite episodes!
In a question and answer thread on Reddit, Whedon discussed "The Body" and the death of Joyce Summers, Buffy's mother. Whedon's no stranger to killing off beloved characters, but he said Joyce's death was the hardest. Reddit user dbertie asked: "I'm sure that killing off a character you've invested a lot of time in can be tough. Have you ever found that doing this to a particular character has had a profound emotional affect on you? Who was the toughest kill?"
I actually find it refreshing... delightful.... vaguely arousing....
Actually, I'm, no offense, very tired of being labelled as "the guy who kills people". Shakespeare (he's this hot new writer) does it way more than me, and everyone's all excited about how he, as it were, holds a mirror up to nature, while I'm like the Jason Voorhees of the writing community. Unfair.
Also, probably Buffy's Mom.
Get ready for the "Buffy" marathon and watch a scene from "Once More With Feeling" below.
