Day 2: Favourite Episode

I'm going to call it a tie... between Who Are You? and Storyteller.

Who Are You? is a brilliant depiction of a villain gradually coming to realise what she's done with her life, and how much that's a bad thing, and to want something else but not quite know how to get there yet. Storyteller is... almost exactly the same thing.

Both are angsty as all get out.

And yet... both are extremely funny.

I love:
- Faith pretending to be Buffy in the bathroom mirror
- Andrew dreaming up dramatic introductions to his audience
- the stunning seduction of Spike
- the wondrous depiction of breakfast
- the whole Stevedore discussion
- the Trio flashbacks, with emphasis on Andrew's awesomeness

I also love:
- Faith beating the crap out of herself (...if that makes sense)
- Andrew turning the camera off

They are both extraordinary in how much is left unsaid and how much that doesn't matter, because the whole story is right there on their faces. It's just wonderful.

Both of these are in my top 10. Which, admittedly, has about 21 episodes on it. Choosing between fabulous options is not my strong suit. ;)

From: [personal profile] red_satin_doll
WAY is one of my all-time favorite episodes , perhaps top 2 and Storyteller is...not. Because a little of andrew goes a LONG way for me, But the last scene of him turning off the camera is one of the single best scenes in the series imo. I'd never thought about the similarities between the two before, though. *ponders*
