Yeah, I do a lot of the favorites stuff, I know. Anyways, I thought it would be interesting to see everyone pick a fave ep of their favorite shows.

Let's start with the obvious Firefly:

Out of Gas: just a beautifully put together and heart warming episode.
Runner up: Objects in Space, for the same reasons as above.

Inuyasha
Inuyasha's First Tears (I think that's the title): brings home just how much Inuyasha cares for Kagome and the others. A very emotionally impacting episode.
Runner up: Koga's first ep, of which I can't recall the name, because I love Koga

Simpsons
This is a big toughie and involved lots of thinking, but I'm gonna have to go with:
Bart Sells His Soul: I love the whole quest for the soul and the dream world of the soul, and the ending especially.
Runner up: Homer the Great (Stonecutter ep) I still don't know why I love this one, I just do.

Futurama
Also tough.
Pilot Episode (can't remember name): I just really like this episode because Fry is brought to the future and first meets Leela and Bender and deals with this whole new place.
Runner up: Jurassic Bark. This would be my number one if it wasn't so sad that I can't watch the whole thing over again.

Family Guy
The ep where Peter thinks he's a woman, for two reasons:
1. The look on Stewie's face when he realizes it's Peter, not Lois. Never seen such genius comedic timing in an animated show.
2. What makes Peter a "man" again is a full-blown cat fight. What a guy thing. Hehe.
Runnerup: Road to Rhode Island. Full of so many classic Stewie/Brian moments.

Buffy/Angel: Having thought about this, I decided I can't really pick my favorite eps of these because I haven't finished watching all the seasons yet. However, honorable mentions go to: Surprise/Innocence, Grad. Day 1 & 2, Becoming 1 & 2, Hush, Restless, I Will Remember You, and Hero.

*reads post*
Yup, I think that's it. Post your own now!

Wonderfalls -Love-sick Ass - that kid freaks me out, sooooo creepy, and Jaye and Eric snog! how cute is that! even if that kid is setting his car on fire while they're at it...

Buffy - Hush (thats the one with the floating creepies and why is it all quiet in here malarky int it? yeah that one)

Carnivale - Babylon and Pick a Number (two parter) -why is it the ones that freak me out are the ones that I love?

Red Dwarf - Holovirus - or whatever its called - the one with Rimmer in red gingham and Mr Flibble.

Sharpe - Honour - just for the pure silly pleasure of watching Sean Bean fend off a bunch of nuns by swinging a chicken wildly around his head.

Firefly - Out of Gas -initially the freaking out is going on, by the end its just the warm and fuzzies all the way to the tips of my toes.

I do love these licences to go on and on

OK, I'll bite. I've got a few episodes of a few shows that I love. So here goes.

Firefly:
Out of Gas: For the same reasons Queeny said. So heartwarming!
Trash: Well, for the obvious...Mal's posterior! DUH!

Star Trek TNG (yeah yeah, I liked it):
Genesis: Because I liked watching the crew de-evolve
A Fistfull of Datas: I just love Brent Spiner, and this showcased his versatility.

Star Trek (original)
Mirror, Mirror: Spock with a goatee...'nuff said.
Trouble with Tribbles: Well, cuz of the Tribbles!!

CSI:
Grave Danger: Where they have to find Nick who has been buried alive...damn I cried through that one. It's also directed by Quentin Tarantino
Lady Heather's Box: Cuz Gil gets his groove on with Lady Heather...who happens to be Melinda Clarke who you all know better as Nandi from Heart of Gold.

X-Files:
Existence: Well cuz Adam Baldwin guest stars!
And any episode with the Lone Gunmen: They are a riot

Simpsons:
The Mysterious Voyage of Homer: Where he eats too many hot peppers and has an interesting trip! Guest starring Johnny Cash as his spiritual guide on his journey to find his soulmate.
Bart Sells his Soul: Also like the quest for the soul thing!

Family Guy:
Petarded: Where Peter comes to realize that he's legally retarded, so he does st00pid things and gets away with it using his retardation as an excuse. Hell, I love it for his one line when he's at a fast food joint and takes over the microphone at the front counter and says: Attention restaurant customers: TESTICLES. That is all. I die laughing every time.
North by North Quahog: simply for the beginning of the show when Peter lists all of the shows that Fox had put on the air, and then in turned cancelled (I've got the list in another thread). That's Seth McFarlane giving Fox the . I love it!

Ok, I think that about does it for me. I'll prolly come up with more later as more of you post on tv that you watched and it'll jog my memory.

Oh, and Chronic, thanks for reminding me about Veronica Mars! I totally forgot that one. Trip to the Dentist is also my favorite ep, ironically.

Battlestar Galactica (new series)

Last third of the miniseries (if you can call that an episode). There is this one quote that i can play again and again and again. There really aint anything spectacular about it, i just love it. It just shows that even in a situation where there aint no controll, you are outnumbered probably 20-1, and the whole human race is on the line - commander Adama just plays it so cool - and shows no panic whatsoever. This is the period:

Gata: Perimiter established
Adama: Launch Vipers
Apollo; Bla bla bla
Gata: Vipers in position
Adama: Signal Vipers - engange fighers only, leave basestars to us - execute.

Whoooo, chills! :)

Other then that, my favorite episode is Home (part 1 and 2). Brilliant 2 parter. Just simpy amazing. Have probably seen this episode 5 times or something.

Firefly: Objects in Space, with Out of Gas on a close second.

I have no other series that i *love*. So i dont know what would be my favorite episode in any other shows.

Jayne: All those years of preacher training, getting knocked out by one bounty hunter
Book: Oh, dont get me wrong. I gave him a hell of a fight
Jayne: Epic i'm guessing

Important people don't do field work.


Allright!!! Love me some lists, boy!!!

Firefly: Ariel. But, to be fair, its hard to choose. I just thought this one had it all. Blue Hands...Jayne's doubledealing...Mal's interrogation. Just great, great television.

Wonderfalls: Cocktail Bunny. I loved the whole homage to "Time After Time"...Although, technically speaking, Crime Dog is the better looking episode.

Fraiser: The Good Son. Not many shows catch me from the start, and if they do, the rest of the show ends up being better than the pilot. This was not the case here.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Tossup between Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered, and The Zeppo. The first one is just funny as all get out.....plus, Angelus. The second one messes with conventional storytelling in a way I hadn't seen on television yet, and haven't seen pulled off nearly as well since.

Angel: The Trial. Angel has to try and save human Darla by undergoing three trials, only to find out that its too late. I thought this episode really showed the stuff Angel was made of.

Star Trek: The Next Generation. The Best of Both Worlds 2. Man, when Riker sticks it to Picard...he really, really sticks it to him.

The Twilight Zone: A Penny For Your Thoughts. Dick York discovers he can read thoughts, but doesn't automatically assume its a gift. Good stuff!

Aw...man, I gotta go to work...But I'll be back...and when I am...You'll all be sorry!!! I mean...I'll have some more...

That's what I meant...

Firefly - Out of Gas
I could just watch it over and over - everything works and is beautiful to watch

Babylon5 - Severed Dreams
Great music, great story, great special effects and the good guys win

Star Trek - (can't remember the actual title)
It is the one that is based on "Run Silent, Run Deep" in which Kirk and a Romulan commander have a mental duel. Most of the Romulan ship is shot to look like a sub and the ending is particularly good - Kirk wins but newlywed young officer wearing a red shirt is killed and the episode ends with Kirk walking discontentedly down the corridor

Sex and the City - Carrie's affair with Big..."but my heart"

Law and Order - the episode with Megan Follows as a mother of a disturbed child. She tries to kill herself and her child but doesn't succeed. Absolutely a gut-wrenching story and fabulous performances by Follows and Sam Waterston.

Seinfeld - the backwards Indian wedding

24: "Day 1: 11PM-12AM" The first season finale of this show is, I feel, the best hour of network television ever produced. After 23 unbearable hours of ratcheting suspense, you have a daring escape, a political/spousal betrayal of Shakespearian proportions, Jack breaking down TWICE in one ep, a shoot out that would make John Woo seem like a slacker, a parking lot shoot out that culmiates in one of the most suspenseful stand-off's ever, and to top it all off, an unexpected death that elevates the show from action series to grand tragedy.

Arrested Development: "Top Bananna" Every episode of this show is gold, but this ep in particular had that one great moment with G.O.B. in it that made me wanting more. "G.O.B. had not mailed the letter, but in an act of defiance, dramatically hurled the letter into the sea. This proved a more difficult dramatic gesture than he anticipated." And during this, you see G.O.B. trying to throw an envelope into the ocean, but it keeps blowing back onto the beach. It had me laughing so hard, that only later stuff on the show could make me laugh as hard as that moment.

Batman: The Animated Series: "Baby Doll" This ep to me really showed the kind of power the show had. Had this villain been on the Adam West Batman series, it would have done more damage to the Batman mythology than the Schumacher movies. But in the hands of this series, a gimmicky villain is given pathos and depth that still haunts you.

Boomtown: "The David McNorris Show" Right out of the gate, this show established that this wasn't going to be your normal cop show. But this ep basically took it's complexity to new heights while giving it's most complex character room to breathe, thrive, chew scenery and make every other "tortured character" look like posers. It's a damn shame that this show still isn't on.

Buffy: "The Body" I already wrote a lot about this ep, so no need to rehash.

Corner Gas: "The Littlest Yarbo" Anyone who knows Canadian tv has seen an ep of that dumb-ass staple "The Littlest Hobo". This ep lovingly blasts that show while thriving on it's own strengths at the same time.

Futurama: "The Why of Fry" Shows off both it's incredibly sense of humor, as well as the show's heart and pathos that THE SIMPSONS never really could access. "What is one life, weighed against the entire universe?" ; "(sniff) But it was MY life."

Six Feet Under: Any of the ep's written by Alan Ball. This man deserves every award there can possibly be out there, because he's the ultimate dramatist. The pilot get's us hooked in, his third season finale shows the beauty of flawed human beings, and the series finale is now my gold standard for series finales that all others will now be measured by. It is a work of pure beauty.

The Sopranos: "Long Term Parking" Adrianna's downfall is one of the most suspenseful and heartbreaking moments in this great shows entire run.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. If I think of any others, I'll update.

I liked Battlestar galactica, the only problem i had was that my family are mighty intolerent of any sci fi i want to watch, and BSG was all ways on on the 'family night, so even if they let me have it on the screen, I couldn't understand whats going on for all the shouting and runnings around that happens, same reason I had to resign myself to the fact that the only thing I would ever be able to appreciate about Stargate/Atlantis was the marvellous posteriors of various actors.

Not that I'm complaining.


Phew, longwinded of what?

One thing I hope you guys know is the name of the episode of futurama with the beurocrat song, the eps. about hermes, and ends with the song, done to a kindo of calypso tune, and the last lines are
'they said I probably shouldn't fly, with just one eye! I am Bender please insert girder'

I love that episode, but never manage to catch the beginning.

So...how about some more...I've seen a lot of TV!

Batman: The Animated Series (This would actually fall under Batman: Gotham Knights, but its marketed on DVD as TAS, so, that's what I'm going with.) Oh! Its a three way tie! Over The Edge. This episode STARTS with Jim Gordon and a SWAT team storming the Batcave, guns blazing. The Batmobile is destroyed and Batman and Robin must run for their lives. All as a consequence of the murder of Barbara Gordon at the hands of Scarecrow. The Demon Within: Bruce and Tim meet up with an old acquaintance of Bruce's, Jason Blood. Blood carries a secret...He's really a demon, and what follows was one of the best animated (read, best looking)pieces of cartoonery I've ever seen. Harley and Ivy. Apparently, pairing these two together was a fluke, but it produced one of the best episodes of the show ever. And, for the record, you could do a lot worse than watch any episode that features Mr. Freeze. There's a reason Heart of Ice won a daytime writing emmy.

Smallville: Red. Is it me, or does Tom Welling seem to like playing bad Clark more than playing regular Clark. Red Kyrptonite turns up, and Clark goes haywire. In Smallville continuity, it lets all of his inhibitions go. Some of the best Smallville stories have red kyrptonite in them now, but here it makes it first appearance, and gives Johnathon and Martha the question: "How do you discipline a Super Boy?"

Scrubs: His Story. Dr. Cox take front row, even taking JDs usual voiceover work. Laugh as he tries desperately to come up with a girl's name for JD. Weep, as by the end of the episode, a proposal is finally accepted. Scrubs...one of TVs most underrated shows.

Friends: The One Where No One's Ready. A real time episode that features Joey and Chandler's fight for the chair. Chandler hides Joey's underwear, and Joey's revenge is the stuff of TV history.

The X-Files: Small Potatos, Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose. The show gave David Duchovney plenty of chances to make fun of himself, but, Small Potatos is where it starts. Clyde Bruckman, a man "gifted" with the ability to see how someone is going to die, makes for one of the finest hours on TV, if for nothing else, then for Clyde's explanation of how he got this power.

Lost: Pilot pt 1 and 2: One of the most exciting, pulse pounding episodes of TV I've ever seen. And, guaranteed to make you look at the screen and say "What the hell?"

I'll be back with some more...When I say I've seen a lot of TV...its true..

God, I'm a lazy bastard...

My fave Futurama episodes are 'Roswell that ends well' when the Planet Express ship goes back in time to Roswell and Fry ends up being his own father because he sleeps with his Mother. LMAO. I also like 'Where no fan has gone before' with the original Star Trek cast, but I also like 'Bender shouldn't be allowed on TV' where Bender becomes a TV star and role model for kids. Theres too many episodes of Futurama I like.

NEEDY

The road to Hel is paved with good intentions


Ah, I love these type of threads

Now I'm going to amaze/shock you all with the unbelievable amount of tv I watch

first of, an obvious one:

Firefly - "Out of Gas". No doubt about it, my all time favourite. Though I do like "Ariel" a lot too, for all its Mission Impossible type shenangians

Smallville - Tough but I'd have to say "Rosetta" a.k.a. "The (first) Christopher Reeve episode". The mythology episodes are always the best and this takes a big step in explaining where Clark is from (like we didnt know already), and creates doubt over what his true destiny is. Plus the moment where we first see Reeve and Mark Snow plays the original Superman music is a true goosebump moment. Honourable mentions to "Memoria", "Covenant" and "Pariah" (I literally jumped for joy and shouted "YES!" halfway through that episode - I never do that)

The X Files - Too hard, so it's a tie between "Memento Mori" and "Redux 2". I've always liked the comedy episodes though and so "Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space'" and "Small Potatoes" are deserve honourable mention as do "Ice", "Release" plus the "Duane Barry/Ascension/One Breath" and "Anasazi/The Blessing Way/Paper Clip" trilogies

The Simpsons - "The Homer They Fall", in which Homer becomes a boxer after discovering that he can withstand numerous hits to the head without it affecting him. Superb. Though, there probably are loads of great episodes, this one stands out.

Alias - "Phase One" for the drama and "Abduction" for the hilarity (Marshall's the star of the show). Like 24, Alias tended to have the stories running for multiple episodes so it's hard to recall what happened in which episode, but these two stand out as two faves.

Farscape - "Won't Get Fooled Again" is completely frelled up, like a lot of Farscape and that's what makes it so entertaining. "Different Destinations" and the "Into The Lion's Den" two parter are fantastic too

Roswell After much thought, it'd have to be "The Toy House", though there are so many favourites. "Independence Day" "Destiny" "A Roswell Christmas Carol" "Cry Your Name" "Departure" etc

Seinfeld - "The Outing" Are Jerry and George a gay couple? Nuff said. ("Not that there's anything wrong with that")

Due South - "All The Queen's Horses" is fantastic and pure Due South - drama, action, comedy and Mounties singing - what's not to like? Always a sucker for depressing downbeat episodes though, two other faves are "The Deal" and "Juliet is Bleeding".

Now and Again - "Deep In My Heart Is A Song". Why the hell was this series cancelled after one season?!!!

Freaks and Geeks - Although every episode is a gem and not having a particular favourite per se, I'd like to nominate "Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers" cos Bill is one of my favourite characters and this was a great episode in which he takes centre-stage as he struggles with the fact that his mum is dating his gym teacher.

The Dead Zone - "Destiny" - I love how it all comes together in the end. "Zion" "Precipitate" and "Playing God" also.

Stargate SG-1 - "Meridian" I love a sad story. Kudos to "Wormhole extreme" "The Changeling", "Prometheus Unbound" and "Citizen Joe" also (Who would have thought a "Clip show" would have made it into a list of favourites)

Wow what a list - and I spent more time thinking about it than expected. To make matters worse, there are other shows I watch that probably could have been included. I really need to get out more.

Well, you bought my book, surely you must have excellent taste.

Anyways, just thought I'd bump this in case anyone else wants to throw in their two cents.

Firefly: Like everyone, Out of Gas
X-Files: Hard, but I'd have to say "Pusher". Just a great, all-around, monster-of-the-week episode
Smallville: Can't say I've seen them all, but "Covenant", the kick-ass finale of Season 3, stands out just for the head-shaving montage...awesome.
Arrested Development: Best Man for the Gob. I could watch any of these indefinitely, but the Funke band pushes this one over the top, if it's the one I'm thinking of
NewsRadio: Pulling way back, but "The Cane" is an amazing Phil Hartman episode, and (TV Tome's descriptions give out) but whichever one had Dave trying to retake the SAT's and once again being foiled by his video game addiction
SportsNight: The Cut Man Cometh
Simpsons: Holy cow, is it possible to choose?
