Favorite TV Episode???
« on: March 12, 2008, 09:10:41 AM »
Not your favorite TV show. Specific episode...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6 - Episode 7 -- Once More, with Feeling

Off-the-hook crazy, insane amazing! Music. Plot. It all just works perfectly! This one, it really does go to 11!

(IMDB listing)

Absolutely the most brilliant TV episode I've ever seen. Better than anything from The Prisoner (imdb), The Twilight Zone, or anything else.

There are a lot of very good ones out there, but I won't list them all... That's YOUR job! :)

So... Favorite episodes... (Not shows.)

Can you guess what my favorite show is? If you know about my last avatar, you should know, so I am going to let you guess what it is, and not name it, but just the season and episode.

my favorite is season 3 episode 28, it is the one about yawning being contagious. wikipedia

Family Guy Season 6 Episode 10

Any episode with Herbert, Greased up deaf guy, or ali williams is a great episode in my book.

The final episode of the sopranos is probably my favorite . . . I thought it was brilliantly done and really appreciated the ambiguity of it.  It left me really wanting more, mourning the loss of the series; which is much better than so many series ends: Typically too much or too abrupt. The sopranos ended in an indescript, yet meaningful way.  (Though I tend to think the actual unshown ending is/was made more than obvious by a number of episodes leading up to it the absense of any clear gratification as to the end really drove it home.)

Also up there are "Gridlock" and "Last of the time Lords" from the new Doctor Who. ( I really love the allusions to the origin of The Face of Boe.)

I was thinking, my second favorite, and very close to #1 is "A Woodland Critter Christmas" -- SouthPark. Absolutely hilarious! I almost died laughing when I first saw it.

Seriously -- I was laughing so hard that I could barely breathe and was somewhat worried that I'd suffocate, which only made things funnier! I still laugh when I see it, but am in significantly less danger of dying. :)

Probably the Buffy episode where she and Angel (or was it Xander?) get possessed into reenacting a tragic scene where a guy had killed his girlfriend.

I'm a cartoon guy, so just about anything Frisky Dingo these days.

Buffy's first two seasons were incredible. But sticking with the toons, I'll take any episode of Cowboy Bebop.

Season 1, Episode 2 of the *original* "The Office" series (The New Girl).
Dr. Katz -- almost any episode starring ben (i'll pick one: "Monte Carlo", where ben starts a celebrity limosine service)

Lets tear off his flesh and have an orgy in his blood!!! But yes, I agree, absolutely hilarious episode.

Loved Dr. Katz! It was a perfect vehicle for comedians, too, which is surprising that it didn't last much much longer. I grew up in the 60s/70s, so fluff shows at the end of the 60s like 'I Dream of Jeannie' left me wondering why all women didn't look and dress like Jeannie, and of course, 'Star Trek.' The 70s brought more social comedy and a buttload of campy crime shows. My favs were The Rockford Files and Baretta, Fawlty Towers, and the unforgettable The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin.

Ah, but those are shows, not episodes. The great thing is that I can rewatch these on DVD. Kinda leaves me wondering in exasperation after watching today's reality-TV shows: Why am I sitting here watching these dumb "reality" yucks?

The Rockford Files and Baretta were great.
BUT there should be a law against mentioning those in a post and not mentioning "Starsky and Hutch" which as even better.

While "Buffy - Once More With Feeling" and even more "Hush" are All-Time-Favorites within my family, right now NCIS - Suspicion (season 4, ep. 10) is something we watched several times over the last few days.
The team must leave for the boondocks and when Ziva asked, what boondocks mean, Tony and McGee imitate the dueling banjos from John Boorman's "Deliverance".
Just great.
