Scientific Guy's Top 50 Episodes

Mon Dec 23, 2019 12:42 am

Hi Soda Shop!
I have taken the plunge and compiled my list of my Top 50 Odyssey episodes of all time. These are the ones that are not only my favorites, but also the ones I perceive to be critically the best.

Any thoughts?

Signatures are overrated.

Assuming it is in order, I completely disagree with your list.


It's hard to provide an in-depth analysis of how somebody else orders episodes, but I can say confidently that my top-50 would look quite different, partly in composition, largely in order. This has brought the idea back to my mind of a linear ranking system, which I might look into implementing sometime after other projects are completed.

Oh boy.

Let’s take the top 10 for the moment. How drastically different would that be?

I really can't say without spending a lot more time processing it. On a more casual level, though, I have done a decent percentage (at least 20%) of OACS' total votes, so it's fair to say its top ten is influenced by me and somewhat (20%? ;) ) represents my views "off-the-cuff" (that is, without deep analysis). That list vs. yours, for quick reference:

1. The Final Conflict - Plan B, Part 2: Collision Course
2. The Last Resort - Checkmate
3. The Time Has Come - Plan B, Part 4: Resistance
4. A Question About Tasha - The Time Has Come
5. Clara - The Moral Coil, Part 1
6. ...But Not Forgotten - The Mortal Coil, Part 2
7. Another Chance - Plan B, Part 1: Missing in Action
8. Exceptional Circumstances - Exit
9. Plan B, Part 2: Collision Course - Expect the Worst
10. The Battle, Part 1 - The Battle, Part 2

I highly doubt that would be my personal top ten, in composition or order, but I'm inclined to think it has more in common with it than yours, particularly the high placement of "The Final Conflict". I'm not sure whether I'd take any other episode in AIO over that one, whereas on your list it's #34.
