3 Willow and Tara- the most realistic portrayal of a committed, loving gay relationship between two characters that has ever been done on television to date. 5 Brilliant dialogue to die for- so fresh.any show that is able to spawn its own language ("slayer slang," "Buffyisms") and change the lexicon is great. 8 It is able to be and do both at the same time, and not seem contrived or cheesy. (See previous #6 and #7). 9 Alyson Hannigan. 'Nuff said. 11 Extra Flamey candles. 12 Jane Espenson cracks me up.
