Today's topic is best series opener. I think everyone must agree that that's The Way Back, and not just because of the shock of Tal and Masha Varon getting shot at the end. It's a great episode for establishing the Federation and how it works, with surprising and fresh writing all the way through.

Like [livejournal.com profile] aralias, though, despite thinking it's the best series opener, it's probably not my favorite. For that, I'd have to choose "Aftermath," which is sexy and fun (although it's not all fun and games, obviously). It doesn't follow on that well from "Star One," which is disappointing, but it's a great episode for Dayna, Avon, Servalan, and Hal Mellanby (sadly his only one, which is what makes this episode not all fun and games). It's sort of interesting that they seemed to toy with making Avon more heroic in this ep. It doesn't really seem to have been part of a serious, sustained effort to change his character in Series 3, so I wonder what was going on there. Still, I like that about it. I also like that it works as a two-parter with Power Play, which is another favorite episode of mine.

Today's topic (actually yesterday's, but I forgot) is something that made you laugh.

The real question is 'with, or at?' )

Today's topic is "worst decision." Blake and Avon have each made some bad ones, but surely the award goes to

TRAVIS! )

Today's question is favorite image or screen cap. This is a quick one, which is good--today was long! This image is a weird favorite--I don't know, it captures Avon's character for me in a way most stills don't. Not the most flattering shot of him (although not the least, either--he's not particularly photogenic!), but it just has a certain something. I've spent too much time looking at it.

So, I am officially doing the 30 Days of Any TV Show Meme. Today's topic is "what you wish happened."

JENNA: Maybe some dreams are worth having.
AVON: You don't really believe that.
JENNA: No, but I'd like to.
