It’s been 20 years since the series finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired, so we’re hitting the Bronze to celebrate the show’s absolute best installments.

Trust us: Picking just 20 episodes was no easy feat for a show that helped pave the way for genre fare in the mainstream. But luckily we weren’t under the threat of Olaf’s hammer as we challenged ourselves to make the brutal decisions below.

Despite the fact that two decades have passed us by (just thinking about that is enough to give us the wiggins), Buffy remains as pertinent as ever. So we assembled our in-house gang of Scoobies to look back at all seven seasons of slayer-y goodness, and revisit the woman who died twice while saving the world and still lived to tell about it.

Every season is represented below (with a higher focus on Seasons 2 and 3, because duh), including the biggies you know we’ll be, uh, singing praises for, and some under-appreciated gems that belong side by side with the crème de la crème.

So put on your yummy sushi pajamas and get cozy as we take a trip down Revello Drive memory lane to discuss Buffy‘s bloodiest, boldest and best episodes of all time. After you read through our picks (or watch the video embedded above), be sure to stake your claim in the comments section and let us know which ones land in your Top 20!
