    The fanatical Buffy-love in here is far too thick. :p That's a pretty decent episode, but Tapestry is in a whole other league.

    This time, I'm afraid I've got to go with Tapestry It's just such a great story about dealing with regret and acceptance of fate, of recognising that everything you've been through in your life affects who you are now.

    Tapestry- It was an episode of television that said it all, said it perfectly and managed to do it in 42 brilliant minutes.

    The Body. Not to be disrespectful to Firefly/Serenity fans (as I count myself among them), but anyone who votes otherwise is clearly insane.

    The Body was a great episode, but Tapestry is better.
