Had to go for Chosen for teh level of impact it had on me. Its hard to explain, but after I watched that episode I became more of a fan than I have ever been. Dunno what it was, but it must have been something
I'm the only one to vote for it so far (and possibly overall) but I had to vote for Angel. The first season of Buffy is still a good season for me because it was fresh and the characters were still developing and it was the first episode that seemed to show what was coming - once we knew Angel was a vampire it was good to imagine what would happen if Buffy ever had to come up against him in a fight. It also allowed David Boreanaz to develop his character from that point onwards rather than just being the guy in the shadows who turned up occasionally with advice.
I think there were some brilliant episodes in the other seasons - Hush being a good example - but overall for me Angel is still my favourite.
"Becoming, Part 2", though surely both parts should be listed? Anyhow, it remains the best finale to a TV series I've seen, surpassing even The Sopranos'. I don't think Buffy ever managed to better it.
