    I was going to mention this earlier but I wanted to make sure you got a good pic for Revenging Angel. I'm sure most people familiar with the show would recognize it but might not recognize the name.

    My votes:
    Xena: Warrior Princess - The Ides of March
    Farscape - Revenging Angel
    Firefly - Serenity
    Angel - Lineage (I've said this in other threads and earlier in this one too but this is probably not only my favorite SFF TV episode but one of my favorite episodes of any genre of TV ever. Too bad it has to go up against a lost-isode [face_worried]
    Great screencap for it BTW)

    Once More With Feeling! Another outstanding Buffy episode. Under Your Spell was brilliant in both incarnations, and those who've only caught the eoncore presentations have missed out on a gorgeous bit of wordless dance involving Dawn.

    -B5: Severed Dreams (I doubt there will ever be an episode of scifi TV so revolutionary- the shock (the viewing audience: "Wait, they can't do that!"), the action, the whole "the world has gone to hell" feeling, not to mention the sheer number of major events crammed into a single hour of TV and yet still ahve time for so many poignant character moments, how this was ever accomplished will forever be beyond me. Pegasus was great, but Severed Dreams was off the scale. "Only one human Captain has ever survived battle with the Minbari fleet. He is behind me. You are in front of me. If you value your lives, be somewhere else.").

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Once More With Feeling (believe it or not this was a tough one. I've kind of been trying to give each show I enjoy a fair shake because I enjoy each one for different reasons. Once More with Feeling is just too damn good to pass up voting for though. Even if it means not getting a chance to vote for Lois & Clark).
