    Welcome to the first SFF: Films and Television tournament, where we will decide on the greatest episode in sci-fi/fantasy TV history!


    Rules and Guidelines

    [ul][li]There will be 64 entries in the tournament.[/li][/ul]

    [ul][li]The format will follow the template set by the Census tournaments... though you can expect at least one thing that will set it apart from what's come before. If you've never participated in a tournament, check out the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/census_and_games/b10264/24089926/p1/?317]current one[/link] to familiarize yourself with the concept.[/li][/ul]

    [ul][li]New matchups will be posted approximately every 24 hours. The title will be changed to reflect that.[/li][/ul]

    [ul][li]Images will be used during the matchups, but please, do not repost them when you vote. Be considerate of those who have slow connections.[/ul][/li]

    [ul][li]You can vote under a sock only if your main username has been game banned. No double voting using socks will be allowed.[/li][/ul]

    [ul][li]Discussion on why you decided to vote for a particular episode is allowed, but be wary of posting spoilers. Not everyone has seen every episode in the tournament. If you want to mention spoilers, do so only by using black highlight-to-read text.[/li][/ul]

    The Gift. It's probably the single best episode of BtVS, and that's saying something.


    Babylon 5 / Season 5 / "Sleeping in Light"
    VS
    Star Trek: The Original Series / Season 2 / "Amok Time"

    Never followed Bab 5. Amok Time by default, but it's one of ST's best moments as well.


    Red Dwarf / Season 5 / "Back to Reality"
    VS
    Star Trek: The Original Series / Season 2 / "Mirror, Mirror"

    Never followed Red Dwarf. Mirror, Mirror by default, but Nichelle Nichols in a two-piece makes at all the more =P~


    Star Trek: The Next Generation / Season 6 / "Tapestry"
    VS
    Angel / Season 2 / "Through the Looking Glass"

    Tapestry is one of those rare moments in TV that makes you re-think your entire life, or at least it did with me. [hl=black]Forget all that hoo-ha about timelines & whatnot. This episode is about regret, pure & simple. It made me realize that even my mistakes made me who I am today; and since I like who I am, then my mistakes are an integral part of my growth. This episode has led to me forgiving myself for my past screw-ups, of which there are many :p[/hl]

    Stargate SG-1 - Window of Opportunity

    Windo of Opportunity is one of SG-1's better episodes, although it occurs to me with episodes like this one, [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urgo]Urgo,[/link] [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trials_and_Tribble-ations_%28DS9_episode%29]Trials & Tribble-ations[/link], and [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%2C_Mudd]I, Mudd[/link] that maybe there should be a "Comedy" catagory [face_thinking]
