Day #01: Favourite season
My favorite season is S6, the everything-goes-to-hell season. I love the depression arc. This is my favorite season for Buffy/Spike, when they are at their most twisted and dysfunctional (and convoluted). I love the geeks as villains, especially Warren, who manages to both be one of the show's most human villains, and among its most irredeemable. Willow's storyline has its weak point, but it is still a powerful storyline. Xander's choice to leave Anya at the altar rang true for me for his character. Although if he'd had any sense, he would have married her and divorced her later, sparing her the humilation of being left at the altar. But Xander is sometimes lacking in the sense department. And despite everything, the season ends on a positive note, with Xander saving the world by telling Willow that he loves her, Buffy coming out of her depression, and Spike choosing to get a soul.

S5 is a close second, being arguable the least flawed season, but I find S6 to be more interesting.
