Do you have a favorite go-to episode?

Yes, agreed, lovely! ... And maybe the start of "The Avon & Servalan Show"?!
Also I like Avon's fighting in it, & all the fighting - it's VERY exciting (kudos to makers!). I've heard some people say the fighting is crap like the budget, but not to my eyes. Go Avon Go!
And Dayna - GOOD SHOOTING! (with the bow+arrow)

I think my go to episode depends on my mood thinking about it. Ironically in these dark times I return to the way Back to remind myself of the importance of fighting injustice however hopeless the fight might be!
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

Staging a fight sequence takes some doing and I applaud our heroes for doing what they did; Mr D had a chipped ankle in Aftermath by all accounts and he still looked good!. The fight in Duel between Mr T/stuntman and Stephen/stuntman is superb; the Spacefall punchup in that computer room etc. Okay, there are some not so well done, but it takes time.
I think the Sweeney managed it because whenever everyone fell out of those Transit vans, apart from John Thaw and Denis Waterman, every one else was a stuntman! I used to love those punch ups...even the two stars got to join in sometimes and they seemed to have a ball.
In the Prisoner, one stuntman said that Patrick Mc used to get quite carried away and he really did hit whoever he was fighting; and when Patrick Mc hit.....he hit!!!
Does anyone remember that Blue Peter episode where Peter Duncan went to Stuntman School and was taught how to throw punches, fall out of windows etc? I think it was the great Nosher Powell who showed him the ropes and staged a fight sequence with him, showing how the camera had to be placed etc.
Great stuff.

My go-to eps are (in no particular order - two from each series):

1. Duel
2. Project Avalon
3. Countdown
4. Gambit
5. City
6. Sarcophagus
7. Sand
8. Gold

@TT - if there was the opposite of a go-to list (a 'stay-away from' list?), Moloch would top that. In fact, I might skip the rewatch, 'cos it makes me so cross!


Travisina - you're going to hate me....I'm so sorry.
Moloch - it's on my list. I'm not saying for a second it's a vintage episode, but there is plenty going on at least! My guilty pleasure!

My list.
1. Seek Locate Destroy
2. Project Avalon
3. Shadow
4. Gambit
5. Harvest
6. Moloch
7. Gold
8. Warlord

I think I remember that, but wasn't it his spin off show 'Duncan Dares' ? I loved Duncan Dares.

Deathwatch never ever gets old. The whole premise of the episode is interesting and a bit of a departure from the norm. Seeing Dayna get the chance to put a gun in Servalan's face was great, and just as annoying that she was under orders from Avon not to kill her. Avon was cold and plotting as usual. When Deiter Tarrant's representative shakes Avon's hand at the end in the final scene, Avon just keeps his hand sticking out even after the guy has left the room, sort of starting at it like some odd fixture he hasn't used like that in a very lohg time.

Most of Season 1 was a bit slower pace than seasons 2 and 3, which I favor over the first and last series. Sand and Gold like other have pointed out are excellent episodes that I love escaping with, Gambit also.

Quite fond of the series 2 episode Shadow. Got to see a Cally-centric episode for the first time in that episode and the little colored watchglasses on fishing line were amusing as the moondiscs. Weapon was pretty interesting too. Some good moments with Servalan and Travis in that one.

Trial is another good episode from series 2. The picture of Travis as a character was never really complete until then. We knew why he was chasing Blake but little more other than that he was ruthless. Also having the chief judge be Gregorian from Orbit was entertaining.

Deathwatch is the Duelling Machine, Ben Bova, last minute replacement episode, still stands up very well indeed

Having just noticed this post, I'll be very interested when you get around to discussing "Gold" in your blog, Tim.

In fact, now I think about it, "Gold" would be an appropriate one to do as an Advent calendar entry, given it's significance as a gift (along with myrrh and frankincence) from the three Wise Men. And it would certainly be a wise man indeed who chose to participate in the Advent calendar! Places still available.

Gold. I love heist stories and this one is also sort of doom and gloom that predicts the ending - everything goes downhill from that point.

I know this one has been mentioned before but my top go-to is Aftermath. Great Avon and Servalan scenes, intro of Dayna whom I've always really liked, great writing. Avon's wardrobe choices don't hurt either.

Would the lovely black flowing shirt have anything to do with this choice??? Grin

You know, for me it's the jacket, the slate blue leather & grey cloth one, with the whatever it's called, "Chinese" (upright) collar. It just really, really suits Avon/PD! He's a lithe, trim man & it superbly... accentuates... his figure. AH!

Aftermath is a good episode.

For me, it's Pressure Point -- an episode I can watch over and over again. There is some great Blake-Avon dynamic, both the scene aboard the Liberator ("Sooner or later I'll have my chance") and in the Control room, where Avon's words are not supportive ("There is nothing here, Blake, nothing") but his body language is.

Also, Kasabi is a great guest character, and I always enjoy seeing some rebels in the series other than Blake and Cally (the only two real revolutionaries aboard the Liberator). Kasabi's interaction with Servalan is also very intriguing, and so are Kasabi's final words -- she apologizes to Servalan who has just given her a lethal drug dose, saying she should have helped her when Servalan was young! It's one of the noblest gestures in the entire series.

There's also the pathos of Gan's death, and the wordless final shot of his empty station aboard the Liberator. Altogether a great episode.

Okay, so I'm realizing we could have a whole thread on Avon's wardrobe choices, and probably should so as not to annoy everyone else in this thread, but I can't resist because since discovering the show in 1985 I have literally Never had anyone to discuss any of this with before! So, with apologies for my giddy enthusiasm, I have to respond; yes, the black shirt does play into my choice of Aftermath as a go-to; I think it's partly the sudden contrast, sort of the shock of seeing him in something more casual. That and it just looks really good. I may be overthinking it but it's fun to think about.
