    -B5: War Without End, part 2 (the fact that this manages to wrap up the Babylon 4 story arc 2.5 years later so well despite not actually being what was originally intended, and yet still make so much sense is a testament to how masterfully carved it was).

    -BSG: Lay Down Your Burdens part 2 (yeah, this one was pretty radical, seemingling changing the show on a fundamental level)

    -SG1: Lost City (this, for all intents and purposes the equivilent of an SG-1 theatrical film, just kicks ass)

    -Futurama: Godfellas (Bender > Buffy)

    Lost - Exodus, Part II

    The culmination of a great first season that just kept getting better as it went along.

    Battlestar Galactica - Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II

    The way it touches on almost every storyline established since the miniseries is great, and one either has to hate or love how it forever the changes the dynamic of the show. I love it.

    The X-Files - Beyond the Sea

    I only watched this for the first time 5 days ago, as I've only recently started watching "The X-Files", and this is, in my opinion, the first amazing episode in the series. Brad Dourif is amazing and managed to make me forget how I've in the last few years only seen him as Grima Wormtongue.

    Buffy: The Vampire Slayer - Graduation Day, Part II

    Joss Whedon is my favourite television writer and any episode he writes is an instant favourite of mine. This episode doesn't dissapoint and even though it focuses less on the drama and angst of the previous season ender, it does provide some great action and a big snake.

    Abstain. Never saw either episode.


    Battlestar Galactica - Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II
    VS
    Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Sacrifice of Angels

    Very tough call! I'll say Sacrifice of Angels because it features the best fleet battle I've seen yet. (Yes, I think it surpasses the drunken brawl known as the Battle of Coruscant)

    :oops: Godfellas was sooo close.

    [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hush_%28Buffy_episode%29]Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Hush[/link]
    Yeah, no real competion here. Hush is not only one of the best Buffy episodes but quite possibly one of the best episodes of TV period.

    Prey- Confrontation between Janeway and Seven was one of Voyager's finest moments.

    Jurrassic Bark- I don't feel shame in admitting that the final ten seconds of this episode are the closest any cartoon has ever brought me to tears.

    Lost, pilot- completely riveting
