The Language of Bromance recently recorded their 148 Episode and to honor the 25th anniversary of Buffy The Vampire Slayer Richard and Shawn Drafted their top moments from Joss Whedon’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Episode 148 The Buffy The Vampire Slayer Moments Draft took the moments from the show that moved, scared or made the guys laugh.
Here is the highlights from the Draft with videos of the moments drafted.
Shawn 1st Round 1st Pick
Season 2 Episode 7 Lie To Me – Does Life Get easy
In a moment that helps show the Father/Daughter relationship between Buffy and Giles the Does Life Get Easy speech puts that on display. After an emotional episode of dealing with a friend from the past who comes to Sunnydale with his Vampire Cult. Buffy tries to come to terms with growing up.
Richard 1st Round 2nd Pick
Season 4 Episode 10 Hush – Giles Presentation Buffy Stabby
A moment that shows the funny from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. During the episode of Hush the group loses their voices and have to communicate with their hands. Buffy shows off her slaying skills which oddly looks like something else.
Shawn 2nd Round 3rd Pick
Season 5 Episode 16 The Body – Mom…Mom…Mommy
In what can be argued as one of the most emotional moments of the Buffy The Vampire Series, Buffy comes home to find her mother on the couch. This is a moment from the show that feels extremely real. It’s a difficult thing to watch but Joss Whedon captures the moment perfectly.
Richard 2nd Round 4th Pick
Season 5 Episode 5 No Place Like Home – First appearance of Glory
A pounding on the door of a church hints at some big bad about to break down the door. The surprise comes when the door breaks open and stands the big bad for this season….wearing a fetching set of pumps. This is the reveal of one of the best enemies of the entire show.
Shawn 3rd Round 5th Pick
Season 3 Episode 16 DoppleGang Land – Vampire Willow I think I might be a little gay
When Vampire Willow comes over to the Buffy world questions need answering. The best revelation is when Regular Willow says “I think I might be a little Gay”. But if we are honest Shawn is just happy to see Willow looking like she just came from an emo medieval fair.
Richard 3rd Round 6th Pick
Season 4 Episode 22 Restless – Defining moment of Buffy and Xander Dream sequence
This is what Richard defines as one of the more revealing moments of the show. This moment defines, for the remainder of the series, what the relationship is between two of the biggest characters in the show. It only took a dream and a psycho slayer to bring them closer together.
Shawn 4th Round 7th Pick
Season 4 Episode 4 Fear, Iteslf – Xandar makes fun of the demon
It is evil and spends an entire episode turning a frat boy haunted house into a true house of horrors. And after the gang makes their way through it they are confronted with the true terror of the place….all eight inches of him.
Richard 4th Round 8th Pick
Season 7 Episode 21 End of Days – Buffy finds the Slayer Ax
What defines a warrior is their weapon and it took seven years but Buffy finally finds hers. When she confronts Caleb she comes to find one of the most metal looking axes we have seen in television history. It looks like it is from the pages of a comic book and she commands it with deadly force.
Shawn 5th Round 9th Pick
Season 6 Episode 22 Grave – Dark Willow/Xander Moment I Love You
Again like the dream sequence this helps explain the relationship between two characters in the show. Before Willow is about to destroy the world the gang has one last chance to stop her and it all hinges on one man and a story about a crayon.
Richard 5th Round 10th Pick
Season 1 Episode 12 Prophesy Girl – Master and Buffy Fight ”You have fruit punch mouth”
What makes this show great is how it doesn’t take itself too seriously and one of the moments that helps illustrate it is this pick. In what is a confrontation between good and evil Buffy in her classic style gives pause to that evil with her quick wit.
Shawn 6th Round 11th Pick
Season 6 Episode 17 Normal Again – Buffy in the psyc ward is this all in her mind?
What is real anymore? This moment has all of us asking that as the whole premise of the show is called into question. It is like Inception before there was Inception and we all learn about the meta.
Richard 6th Round 12th Pick
Season 5 Episode 7 Fool for Love – Spike Shares how he killed two slayers
We finally get to one of the coolest vampires to grace the small screen. Spike describes how he killed two slayers and in that moment helps define for Buffy what being the slayer means.
Shawn 7th Round 13th Pick
Season 2 Episode 17 Passion – Death of Ms Calendar
It is Joss Whedon so no character is safe but years ago we didn’t know that. So it came as a huge shock to us all when Angel (after becoming his evil self) kills one of the major characters in the show. And he does it with a smile that makes all of us feel uneasy.
Richard 7th Round 14th Pick
Season 5 Episode 1 Buffy Vs Dracula – Dracula comes to town
Ever met a celebrity? Here the gang finally gets their chance. So who is a rock star in the Buffyverse? Why none other than Dracula of course.
