Ezzy and I are working through Buffy courtesy of Lynne.
The first season is scary and cool. By the second we're involved in the characters ("Grr, I need a hug") and the third season gets all dark with Faith and the Mayor.
Season Four really gets into the pop culture laughs and brings together literary device, horror and fun in the award-winning Hush. Some great quotes from that episode.
I'm in Season Five (although Ezzy has pushed on ahead) and the one that brings it home for me is Anya's blunt innocence:
"But I don't understand! I don't understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she's, there's just a body, and I don't understand why she just can't get back in it and not be dead anymore! It's stupid! It's mortal and stupid! And, and Xander's crying and not talking, and, and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she'll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why."
