7. Ted (Season 2, episode 11)
This episode of Buffy has to be one of my least favorites out of the entire series. When Buffy’s mother brings home Ted, her new boyfriend, Buffy soon discovers that Ted isn’t all that he first seems. Buffy ends up killing him, and it turns out that he’s actually a robot. I think the reason ‘Ted’ is usually picked as one of the least favorable episodes of Buffy comes down to the fact that the episode jumps from one idea to the other, and then back again. We start off thinking Ted’s okay, then we don’t, then we think Buffy’s killed him, then he comes back, and it just becomes frustrating. It just wasn’t great.
