Gotta go with the original “Buffy”. I prefer Comedy to Dramedy any day.

Firefly is my favorite because I like the mix of western & space opera.

I’m a fan of Firefly because I love the mixing of genres.

I only stuck with “Buffy” through the first three seasons and then lost interest just when everyone else seemed to have started noticing it. I’m such a rebel.

But “Firefly” wins for staying unpredictable, working against type, and getting canceled before it could possibly go bad.

I could just go with the trend and say “Firefly” because I’m a sucker for space westerns. But I’ll go with “Cabin in the Woods” instead because I just finally saw it a few weeks ago and it turned out to be even better than my friends had led me to believe.

I’ll say “Buffy” through the end of season five. Season six was just problematic with the whole “I came back wrong/sex and violence with Spike” arc, and season seven’s “Buffy leads an army of Slayers” concept never really worked for me.

And really, what better way for the series to end than with Buffy giving her life to save her sister and the world?

Specifically, the Out of Gas episode is a modern masterpiece of television.

As much as I love Firefly, I’ll throw out something different – “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog.” Campy with good songs, acting, and the bittersweet ending of the villain realizing getting what he wants is hollow without someone by his side.

3rd season of Angel. There was a great story arc in another dimension and it really had the feeling of Odysseus trying to return home from the Trojan Wars.

I love it all–except Dollhouse–even though Buffy has a huge place in my heart and I usedto give Firefly to anyone who I thought would possibly enjoy it, I think Angel season 5 is my favorite. I love the character arcs for everyone, there are a ton of great episodes–the 100dth, Puppet Time, A hole in the world–to name a few, and my personal favorite season finale ever!

Firefly, because of the qoutes. “I’ll be in my bunk”, “Curse your sudden, yet inevitable betrayal”, etc. 2nd – Avengers because awesome

Rita writes:  

Firefly for tv series, because of the genre mashup + great humor and drama mix! Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog for superhero musical, my private guilty pleasure. So many great and catchy clever songs! :D But Avengers def wins for movie…

Erik writes:  

Firefly. It was a brilliant take on the space Western. It had a cast with such chemistry as well.

kris larsen writes:  

I’d have to go with Dr. Horrible too. The final couple of seconds of the last song was quite moving.

Keith W writes:  

Firefly – great dialogue and a brilliant cast.

hapax writes:  

Oooh. So HARD. I’d give the edge to either “Dr. Horrible” because of the great score (and even greater “commentary” score) but… well, the musical episode of an otherwise horrible Buffy season gave us “Once More With Hobbits.” (If you don’t know it, google it; you won’t be sorry).

Can never resist a universe crossover, so Buffy wins.

Oh, but then, what about “Fray”?…

I’m not sure I’ve ever fallen in love with characters quite like I did when I first watched Firefly. It’ll always be my favorite.

Its very hard to pick just one favorite Whedon TV show but I guess I’ll have to pick Buffy. I remember watching the show when it first aired on the WB. It was so much fun. What really made Buffy great was the characters: Buffy, Xander, Giles, Willow, & Angel were fun, smart characters. The show was brillant for the first five seasons (so well written). Season 6 & 7 do have some good episodes (Once More With Feeling especially), but man, those first five years. Brillant series from Whedon. So happy he’s doing TV again (SHIELD is so cool).

I love Firefly but I have to go with Buffy, not only every time I re-watch it I relate to it in a diffe way, but to this day I can’t stop reading essays and academic papers regarding the show.

Catherine writes:  

Firefly, for numerous reasons that folks above have already stated. I can’t think of any ensemble show where I adore all the cast members quite so much.

Sparrow writes:  

Oh man, Much Ado is definitely my favorite Whedon thing to date. It’s subtle, minimalist, and still lush at the same time. Plus, seriously, best cast ever, or Best. Cast. Ever. ?

Johanna writes:  

Thanks to everyone for entering! I have emailed the winner, and I enjoyed reading everyone’s memories. What a nice note to end on, too, with Sparrow’s comment!

James Schee writes:  

I already have the movie so waited until after to give my answer.

I enjoyed Firefly but one season was just too short, I’ll always wonder where it would have gone & what it could have become. I liked the characters for Buffy more than I often like the stories.

So I’ll go with Angel, it was just such a wonderfully diverse cast, and a show that could literally go and do anything. They could do comedy one week, tear your heart out drama the next, otherworldly adventure , to Greek tragedy.

How thoughtful! Good analyses, too.
