Re: Favorite episodes

Have you done this before?!
A few weeks ago I finished a complete re-watch of the whole franchise. I went chronologically and started with Enterprise Season 1 back about a year ago when that season was released on blu-ray. (So I actually did it all within a year!) I made a list like this for each series, by placing each episode as I watched them. I also gave each episode a letter grade, assisgned each letter grade a numerical value and averaged out each individual season and series to see how I really do stack everything up. Definitely a fun project!

...and what about "The Cage"?
I know it's not a popular opinion around these parts, but I actually don't consider "The Cage" to be canon. The way I see it, the events from "The Cage", as seen in "The Menagerie" is canon. That being said, "The Cage" is an amazing piece of science-fiction television!

I love all 79 episodes like my own kids. "Spock's Brain" is just the one with Down's Syndrome.

I can't limit it to 5 or even 15, as even mediocre or worse episodes can have a single element that I might like.
THIS

But if I were forced to make a choice for my personal top 5:
  1. The Immunity Syndrome
  2. The Doomsday Machine
  3. Balance of Terror
  4. Where No Man Has Gone Before
  5. The Enterprise Incident
And by season:
  1. Balance of Terror
  2. The Immunity Syndrome
  3. The Enterprise Incident
As to which season is the best I´d probably agree with the order 1 - 2 -3, although each season has very good and very bad episodes, IMO.

Re: Favorite episodes

I finally have an entire Season 3 again after 20 years, and the first thing I watched was "Spectre of the Gun", one of my favorites from that year.

Re: Favorite episodes

Why not do a poll with a consensus top 10 (easier said than done, I know) to choose from to get the group answer?
