The Mikies, Buffy Ed

Last weekend, Alison and I did remarkably little other than watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so we managed to finish off Season 7 late Sunday night. Having seen the entire series, I feel reedy to pronounce judgment on the characters. So, here are the Michael Awards for Excellence in Whatever He Darn Well Feels Like, Buffy Edition. (Note: this list contains spoilers.)

Update: I've added a few more categories because, well, I feel like it.

  • Favorite vampire: Spike.
  • Scariest vampire: Angelus.
  • Scariest creatures: Bunnies.
  • Favorite big bad: the Mayor.
  • Least favorite big bad: the Geek Trio.
  • Favorite principal: Quark...I mean Snyder.
  • Least favorite Scooby Gang member: Cordelia.
  • Favorite couple, heterosexual: Willow and Oz.
  • Favorite couple, homosexual: Willow and Tara.
  • Couple that made the least sense: Xander and Cordelia. (Lots of competition here.)
  • Best-introduced character: Dawn.
  • Most touching death: Joyce.
  • Actor with the best singing voice: Amber Benson. (Honorable mention to Anthony Stewart Head.*)
  • Actor who does the best job of playing multiple characters: Allyson Hannigan.
  • Funniest character, early seasons: Xander.
  • Funniest character, late seasons: Willow.
  • Funniest character, normalized to word count: Oz.
  • Most attractive character: Vampire Willow.

And, the moment you've all been waiting for...

  • Favorite character: Willow

I'd like to read your comments on this topic.

* Perhaps that should be "honourable" in his case.
