TOP 10 TV SHOW THEMES
#1 - Angel

The theme song of Angel was written by an alternative rock group called Darling Violetta.  It’s a lush and beautifully haunting ballad that blends classical elements (the gorgeous cello part for example) with a more contemporary rock style.  While Buffy's upbeat punk rock theme caters more to a teenage audience, Angel's theme invokes a darker and more mature emotional response.  This is not to say I believe Angel is a darker show than Buffy- they both have their moments.  Darling Violetta also released a very cool extended remix of the song which can be heard here.

Joss Whedon's official top 10 favorite 'Buffy' episodes

Whedon’s 10 favorite episodes are airing as an all-day marathon on LOGO May 19. Here’s what made the cut:

“Prophecy Girl” (112)

“Innocence” (214)

“Becoming Part II” (222)

“The Wish” (309)

“Doppelgangland” (316)

“Hush” (410)

“Restless” (422)

“The Body” (516)

“Once More With Feeling” (607)

“Conversations with Dead People” (707)

It’s kinda interesting that the finale didn’t make the list — and unsurprising that seasons 5, 6, and 7 are represented by just one episode apiece. Do you agree with Whedon’s picks? Which other great episodes do you think deserve to be in this list?
