              It's the weakest round so far. Out of Mind, Out of Sight is the only episode that's among the strongest in its season. Though I do like Ted, too.

                • Yeah I like "Ted" as well TTB. I can understand why people felt that the robot reveal derails the episode but I've always enjoyed it. "Gone", on the other hand, is in my Top 5 least favourite episodes of the whole show. The voice over work is so, so awful and I can't believe they let it go to air, the dialogue is terrible ("So long copper!"), and I am bored to tears by the invisible fight. I'd honestly be embarrassed to get caught watching that episode and I can't fathom how they weren't embarrassed to shoot scenes like the invisible fight and actually put it to air without feeling humiliated. I actually loathe it.

                  On the flip side, the voice over work in "Out of Mind, Out of Sight" is much, much better (it sounds natural and not like an actress badly reading her script in a voice recording booth) and I agree that it's one Season 1's strongest episodes. Heck, I think it's just a strong episode in general. The idea behind the episode is brilliant and the scenes of Marcie going invisible in class always hit me in the feels. Plus it's brilliant for adding depth to Cordelia for the first time. I actually think I want it to win!

                  IMO "Gingerbread" and "Ted" are both underrated but not amazing. "Triangle" has some *really* funny moments ("I like money better than people! People can so rarely be exchanged for goods and/or services!") and I like that it addresses Willow's fears over Anya's vengeful traits but I also hate the slapstick OTT comedy route they take with Buffy's breakup with Riley which feels totally OOC. "Doomed" gets a lot of flack for the terrible moment that Riley somehow pulls Buffy out of the Hellmouth from a piece of thin string which I agree just insults our intelligence (and how did Buffy catch up to the demon in free fall when he jumped in before her with such a head start?) but it also has a lot of nice character moments and I actually feel like the apocalypse is a legitimate threat. "Showtime" is just typical Season 7 dullness on overdrive (plot, plot and more plot and the final battle is horribly choreographed).

                  Definitely a weak round! One thing I am enjoying about this game is how it exposes certain patterns in the show. A lot of the seasons seem to hit a slump around this mark (IMO Season 6 has a particularly horrendous run with "Wrecked" - "Doublemeat Palace" *yikes*) with the only exceptions being Season 1 (which grows stronger due to the fact it's heading towards it's season finale much earlier than the other seasons) and Season 3 ("The Wish" and "Amends" are excellent even if "Gingerbread" is just average/ok). Season 4 also hits a rough patch, IMO, around this mark with "Doomed" - "Goodbye Iowa") and it's possibly the weakest string of episodes for Season 5 too ("Shadow - "Triangle").

                    • I agree it isn't a round with really strong episodes in but I don't actually dislike any of them and all BtVS eps have something good in them imo. The psychological points in Gone around Buffy that digs into her disconnection and her sense of being wrong and playing into that is a strong aspect of the ep, even if the voiceover work is bleargh and the rescue at the end of Showtime and what it means is a lovely moment, even if the fight with the Turok Han and the sudden telepathy are frustrations. Triangle is good for the Anya/Willow progress and links well to what goes on in S6 between Anya and Xander. I have a real fondness for Doomed, it covers some great character points for Spike in his transition and dealing with his response to being chipped but drawing on character continuity to bridge the shifts. Gingerbread has interesting points and I have a real fondness for Ted, John Ritter is fantastic in it. OOMOOS most days is my favourite ep of S1 because of the depth it brings to Cordelia and I expect it will probably win the round. Personally I probably get the least from Triangle and Gingerbread.

                      + Gone
                      - Triangle (I just get less from this personally)
