    Default What are your favourite TV episodes of all time?

    Obviously there are hundreds of television series, and thousands of episodes. Buffy Forums has an extremely diverse community who all have a variety of different favourites. From your own favourite shows (this is not limited to the Whedonverse), what are your favourite episodes of all time--or the best episodes you have ever seen? What makes a truly good episode in your opinion?

    It's a hard question, so you can either name multiple shows and your favourite episodes from each individual series, or actually list them in order... Have fun picking! It'll be neat to see if any titles reoccur!

    Awesome thread!

    Southpark: The Imagination Land Trilogy!
    Buffy: Restless
    Dr. Who: The End of Time part 2
    Batman Brave and the Bold: Battle of the Superheroes
    Justice League Unlimited: Destroyer
    Morgan Freeman's Through the black hole: Is there a Creator?
    Freddy's Nightmares: It's my party and you'll die if I want you to
    The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy: Underfist

    That's only some that I can think of right now. I will most definitely be back with more later.

    Nice one. Lets see...in no special order:

    The X-Files : Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man

    Buffy: Faith, Hope and Trick

    Buffy: Hush

    Star Trek : City of the Edge of Forever

    Star Trek the Next Generation : Times Arrow

    Star Trek Voyager : Scorpion

    The Avengers : Tne House that Jack Built

    Wagon Train: The Colter Craven Story

    I might come back on some of these, depending on how much discussion there is. TTFN

    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.
