6. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

In pure Joss Whedon fashion, the series finale of “Buffy” was heartbreaking and yet somehow beautiful at the same time. In the very last moments, it is a happy ending, but throughout the episode you’re a strong person if you don’t cry. Of course with any Whedon show, we see many deaths of beloved characters and yet somehow so many people love this episode. I don’t know what it is about Whedon and his writing/directing skills, but while this episode is a bittersweet end you’re guaranteed to smile in the end.
