Favorite TV eps of favorite shows

copying foxxcub. Three favorite eps of my favorite shows:

Lost: Confidence Man; Exodus, Part 1; The Long Con

X-Files: Humbug, Beyond the Sea, Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose

Buffy: Becoming, Parts 1 & 2; Once More With Feeling, Surprise, Doppelgangland, I Only Have Eyes For You (I couldn't choose!)

Supernatural: Devil's Trap/In My Time of Dying, Dead Man's Blood, Faith, Croatoan

Bones: Aliens in the Spaceship, The Headless Witch in the Woods, The Man in the Fallout Shelter

24: Since ep titles are meaningless, I'm going with events: S3: Ryan Chapelle's death & the Chandler Plaza Hotel lockdown (6 am to 7 am); Season 4 finale with Jack Bauer walking off into the sunset; S4 with Tony and Jack teaming up again

Becoming, Parts 1 & 2

;_; I'm still not over the way those episodes hurt. Nothing since has gotten me quite like that did.

Exodus, Part 1

My absolute favorite scene of Lost is still when Sawyer tells Jack about his father. I don't think anything will never top it (especially the way they're going these days). Everything about it was perfect. The thing I noticed most when I was iconing it the other day is that there's a hopeful atmosphere around Exodus 1 and 2 (even if we know how the season ends). I miss when the show felt hopeful. :/ Sorry. I'll knock off the emo now.

Those are easily the best two hours of Buffy, although "Surprise" was pretty damn amazing too.

And Lost peaked with Exodus, Part 1, absolutely, as did Jack/Sawyer. Remember how we thought they were going to team up to oppose Locke? How wrong we were. Lost is always better when those two share a scene but nothing will ever top Exodus.

Replace "Headless Witch" with "Two Bodies in the Lab" and you'd have my three favorites. :)

Exodus Part I is probably my favorite episode ever. So much good stuff in one hour. Maybe I'll watch it when I'm all done with exams...

"Bodies in the Lab," another great Bones ep. *nods*

And Exodus, Part 1 had it all. Definitely one of Lost's finest hours, if not *the* finest. I kinda miss all my S1 icons!

Humbug! I think I need the X-Files DVD's at this point, damn the cost. OMG, I finally watched Aliens in the Spaceship and it totally wrecked me.

I adore Humbug! :) And I've met Jim Rose (v. briefly) so that's an added bonus there.

And wow, yeah, Aliens was so intense, wasn't it? I was sobbing through the whole thing. I just saw a rerun of an S1 ep and in the beginning, their personal lives and all the flirting was pretty clunky but with that one, they really paid it off, I think. I kind of want some Angela/Jack fic now!

Oh, Hell House! I love that one. Very scary but also so hilarious. One of the best, definitely.

"Aliens in the Spaceship" had me sobbint throughout and choosing one Buffy ep ... too damn hard! I think maybe I meant to select "Passion" instead of "Surprise." Basically, almost all of S2 is gold.

(And also saw your post and *hugs* to you and your family)

Yeah Jack and Tony teaming up again was great. Same for Chapelle. That death scene was really theatrical and tragic. And they made you love Chapelle within only a few episodes. Jack Bauers 'death' was great too. And his goodbyes to Tony, Michelle, and of course, President Palmer.

I also really liked the S1 finale. Where he was told Kim was dead. And he went on a suicidal rampage. That and Teri's death really set the mold for Jack's character for the rest of the seasons. But there's alot of great moments in 24. Not recently, lol. But overall, alot.

I actually thought his reunion with Audrey in S5 and all the stuff it set up for his character for the rest of the season was well acted too. Tony's death was a good scene too. Not the actual way he was killed, but Jack's reaction to it.

LOL, your icon! ;) I don't always watch The Office, but I did catch that ep.

And so many great 24 moments. I barely remember S1 at this point, alas. I have seen most of the others again in the meantime so they're a lot fresher in my memory.

I adore Jack and Audrey. When she thinks he's dead and just collapses in the hallway is such a great moment, and then of course their reunion in S5. I did watch last week's ep finally and I'm glad I did. All the interpersonal stuff they set up all season is paying off in a big way. 24 doesn't get a lot of credit for that, but I have to say they really mine these relationships for all they're worth, politically and emotionally and I can't remember ever thinking "Wow, that's so out of character!" (Okay, maybe Palmer being the "we need to get our hands dirty" adviser to Logan, but that's about it!)

Ooooh, all the Buffy eps I totally agree with! Also, Hush. :)

How could I have forgotten Hush?! That's one of maybe two eps that actually scared me. Bravo, Joss. Bravo.

Humbug was so awesome. That and Small Potatoes are my favorite funny ones. And Bad Blood. :)
