Day 7: "I should care about this, why?"  
Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show

There's not a specific episode, but some of the stand-alones in Battlestar Galactica's third season. I liked some of them well enough but overall they didn't really serve much purpose for furthering the bigger story that was being told, which for a series like BSG everything was fluid in its storytelling so it seemed kind of off when they did one of those here and there. I believe it was the network that pushed for those stand-alones until Ron Moore took control again and decided he was going to do things his way.

For Buffy the Vampire Slayer there were many episodes I didn't favor, most of them were in the latter half of the series, especially in the sixth season because that was my least favorite season ever. So it's really hard to say. I think "Where The Wild Things Are" in season four was just that random wtf kind of episode where it was just so horribly bad, it's that "what were they thinking?" kind of an episode. The only redeeming quality of it was having Anthony Stewart Head singing with his guitar in that one scene, because him singing is never a bad thing. But yeah, I think even though I loved BTVS it had quite a handful of cringeworthy episodes which, for a series running as long as that of course it's gonna have its bad eggs of either episodes or seasons in general. It's just the inevitable.

And for the sake of it, in Supernatural it's mostly the filler episodes in these last two seasons which they should have minimized greatly when dealing with a larger than life apocalyptic plot. As for specifics, definitely "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Heaven and Hell", which I think everyone knows the obvious reasons why those episodes sucked major. DNW ever again, Kripke.

Masterlist of days here.

This would be my oldest icon. I've had it uploaded forever and I love it to bits. crackers4jenn made it.

The Buffy/Spike thing got to be too much about degradation to the point that I felt like I was gonna heave in their scenes. The attempted rape was just way too far. I hated Willow's lame magic addiction storyline. There were a handful of good eps in S6, but I tend to forget about them because the whole season seems tainted to me.

I was thinking about how all over the place this season of SPN was the other day because I was considering a complete season rewatch. There are a few episodes I would put on my worst episodes top ten list. But they also gave me "The End" which I would put on the best and possibly "Point of No Return". I decided if I do a full rewatch, there is just no way I can sit through "Fallen Idols" again though.

I never liked Buffy/Spike (the one-sided version in S5 is an exception) just from the example of how they handled it. Also, I cannot stand the majority of Spuffy fans that try to defend what Spike did or find ways around what happened. HE TRIED TO RAPE HER. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT NO MATTER HOW YOU TWIST THINGS. Just, ugh. Everyone was so broken and depressing in S6, I pretty much consider it the "everyone was out of their minds and didn't know any better" season.

I think as a whole for SPN S5 that it's not as horrible as it seemed to us because we suffered through two long hiatuses and after those hiatuses we returned with filler episodes, which prolonged anything substantial towards the plot. I've counted how many episodes I really loved or enjoyed, it's 14 episodes. The majority of them were plot-related. 14 out of 22 isn't so bad, really. It's definitely how they organized the season overall is what makes it seem like it was all over the place, which it was. Particularly the latter half since we should have just had episodes dealing with the Apocalypse right after the last hiatus and not just come back with a stupid filler. That's what threw us off (and the lack of Castiel made it worse).
