Tales from the Darkside (1983)
I'm a sucker for a good anthology horror series.
Favorite episode: Inside the closet, the one where this old man's deformed daughter(pictured) attacks this woman. Easily the scariest episode.
Just as Batman was a favorite on Saturday mornings when I was a child, Superman the animated series was my favorite when I was a teenager, when it aired in the afternoons. I used to run home from school every afternoon to catch it.
Favorite Episode: The Late Mr. Kent, where Superman is trying to clear a man who is wrongfully accused of murder and Clark Kent ends up being "killed" by the man who actually did it. The ending is incredibly dark, funny, and really twisted for a show like Superman and it always stuck with me.
The Venture Bros. (2003)
Favorite episode: Hard to choose. As the series went along, stand alone episodes became fewer and more far between, which is great, but it's hard to choose an episode that is part of an encompassing story arc. I'd probably go with Billy Quizboy and the invisible hand of fate though, if only for that beautiful montage at the end.
Tales from the Crypt (1989)
Favorite episode: Probably Collection Complete. I am a big fan of M Emmet Walsh and he is particularly funny in this episode. Again, I'm a sucker for anthology horror shows though and there are a lot of good episodes.
Justice League (2001)
Favorite episode: Pretty much the entire Project cadmus story arc that encompassed the first season of unlimited. It stands as one of the most thought provoking, emotional, and ambitious animated stories of all time, picking up plot threads that started on Superman the animated series and ending with an incredible epilogue that acts as a bookend to the animated Batman's life and adventures.
However, if I was to pick a stand alone episode, it would be For the man who has everything, adapted from Alan Moore's Superman annual of the same name.
Favorite episode: Hard to choose. Jurassic Bark, Luck of the Fryish, or The Sting. I guess I'm weird. I think that the show is at it's strongest when it's heartfelt or sad.
Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
Favorite episode: Robin's reckoning part 1, Robin's origin episode. The episode has the best animation ever on the series, as shown particularly in the flashback scenes . The episode is also the only time that a saturday morning cartoon really made me want to cry. The shadows of the flying Graysons falling to their deaths and the broken rope swinging was a subtle way to show their death's, but it's effective and really haunting.
The Looney Tunes Show (2002)
Kind of a cheat considering that they're a series of theatrical shorts that spanned over decades. However, I was exposed to them on television and they had such an impact on me that I couldn't leave them out.
Favorite short: too many to name. Couldn't possibly decide. I've always been partial to Wile E Coyote though. That stupid bastard has probably made me laugh more in my lifetime than any real human being. I like Pepe Le Pew a lot too. I can, however, name my favorite Bugs bunny cartoon; That would be Wabbit Twubble, a hilarious early bugs bunny by Bob Clampet, back when bugs was a jerk who liked to torment Elmer Fudd for no reason. That is an amazing cartoon.
Twin Peaks (1990)
Favorite episode: Can't really say. The entire show is one continuous storyline. I also wouldn't want to spoil the fun for those who haven't watched it.
The Twilight Zone (1959)
Favorite Episode: Walking distance. Probably the greatest half hour of television of all time. It really hits you and sticks with you for a while, makes you reflect, like all of the best Twilight Zone episodes.
I don't really watch a lot of television, so it's hard to pick my favorite shows...but here they are...
